My not so little boy turned 1 last Saturday!! My goodness time flies by! We were blessed with perfect weather and were surrounded by family and friends to celebrate a really wonderful day!
I have decided to share some photos of the things that kept the kiddies entertained. If you have been following along with my blog you would see that I adore activities that are simple, open-ended, outside and quite often messy! I also love capturing the little hands and feet involved in the fun. The photos that I have below contain everything that I love and also describe our day perfectly.
One of the favourite activities was painting the cardboard cubby house that we had made previously.
There was lots of careful painting, experimenting with colours, messy hand prints, splattered skin and big smiles!
It really was a fabulous day and I think we wore out all the kids (and ourselves) by the end of it. However as we kept things easy with food and decorations by not getting caught up in the little details our exhaustion came from playing not running around organising and fretting. I love those 'Pinterest' parties but by not having a theme, simply heating up party food in the oven and decorating with colourful balloons and streamers we found that we were very relaxed and were able to spend the day enjoying our time with those who came and most importantly our boy!!
