I won’t lie… when AC told me he wanted to have an Octonauts themed birthday this year, I got super excited. Have you seen how cute they are?? Last year he chose a Thomas themed birthday and while I understand the appeal for kids, I wasn’t that much of a fan.
Anyway, I was extremely pleased with the results (and got AC’s seal of approval) and the best part is, something wonderful happened along the way. I’ll share that in the coming weeks. All I can say is, it’s very exciting 🙂
A 4Cats paint splatter party (if you’re not familiar with this place, you should be – I can’t imagine anyone NOT loving everything about it)
I packed some Octogoodies for the kids (a coloring page and activity sheet) along with a mini canvas, paint brush and 3 paint colors to keep with the art party theme
“Earplugs and xanax”
– on what I should get for new parents
Saw these on the decorated cookie and had to try them – super easy to make and super cute too! Best part was that my 3.5 year old was able to make them without any assistance.
Rainbow stars confetti
Edible color markers
