Fidget Spinner Pinata DIY

Has your house caught the FIDGET SPINNER bug yet? They are everywhere and I have to admit, they are pretty fun to play with! My nephew knows how to make a fidget spinner and made some for himself and his siblings. I think building your own fidget toy is a great way to encourage mechanical minds! This fidget spinner pinata would be perfect at a tween birthday party! It is made of common products and only took about 1 hour to make (it may have gone faster if I weren’t stopping to take pictures) and about $5 in supplies (including the oatmeal in the can). If you’ve ever looked at buying a pinata for a party, they can be really pricey! Add to that the cost of the candy and it can break your budget!

Trolls Birthday Party Ideas

We celebrated my daughters 6th birthday last week Lady Glitter style! It celebrated two things my daughter is currently obsessed with – TROLLS and roller skating! We had a Trolls birthday party for her and her friends at our local roller skating rink! It was so perfect since in the movie Lady Glitter Sparkle (aka Bridget) and Prince Gristle go roller skating on their date. I’m going to share all of my Trolls birthday party ideas here and link to everything I used so you will be all set! I was sent several products from Oriental Trading complimentary to use for the party and others I purchased from various stores. 

Trolls Birthday Party Ideas

The Classic Fun Center in Orem, Utah was such a great spot for the party (and the girls had a great time)! In the past I have done all of the decorations, food and games – which is a lot of work, but something I LOVE! But, we were out of town for a month until two days before the party so it was actually really nice to know that the party would be really fun, but I would only have to do a little bit of the work. 

Trolls Party Favors

This was my favorite part of the whole shebang – because I got to be crafty!

The contents of the favor bags are:
Pink Medium Gift Bags – Oriental Trading
Pink Tulle “Hair” on bags and headbands – Oriental Trading
Felt Flowers on bags and headbands – Oriental Trading
Trolls Pencils (24 pkg) – Amazon
Trolls Rings (24 pkg) – Amazon
Trolls Stickers (came in a 4 sheet package) – Walmart
Trolls Fruit Snacks – Walmart
Glow Sticks – Walmart
Plastic Headbands (4 pkg) – Dollar Tree
Blue & Green Glitter Foam (for my daughters bag and headband) – Hobby Lobby

**I used the glitter foam on my daughters bag and headband just to make it stand out a bit from the others since she was the birthday girl. 

To make the favor bag I gathered a length of pink tulle that was 9″ x 48″ and used a hot glue gun to secure it to the inside edge of the bag. Then I took a small piece of tulle and tied the top to create the iconic Troll hair. 

 

To make the headbands I followed this tutorial from my friend The How To Mom and used 18″ x 5″ pieces of tulle. I did 12 on each headband. Then I used a small amount of tulle to wrap around the top to create the Troll hair style. 

Trolls Party Supplies

Since the decor had to be minimal, I wanted to make sure it was totally themed. I got Trolls paper supplies (paper plates, cups and napkins) as well as pink table covers from Oriental Trading. They were perfect and really adorable! We also had pink, yellow and teal balloons.

Trolls Birthday Party Cupcakes

I baked the cupcakes in regular cupcake liners and then used pink glitter cupcake wrappers that I got at Hobby Lobby around each one. 

For the frosting I used vanilla frosting that I colored with Wilton food gel. I put each color in a sandwich size ziptop bag and then put all three bags into a gallon size bag with my piping tip already in place. That gave me the unicorn effect when I piped the frosting on top. 

The cupcake picks were a FREE PRINTABLE party pack from DreamWorks that I linked to in my Trolls Birthday Party Invitation post a couple of weeks ago. (Don’t mind my circle cutting inabilities. I usually use a circle cutter but was out of town and only had a clunky pair of kitchen scissors to work with. Not awesome.) 

Here is my beautiful birthday girl. I can’t believe she is 6! It has been the most amazing 6 years of my entire life! Or, to use the words of Poppy – it has been hair-iffic!

Superhero Girl Party Ideas

My niece Sue turned seven last week and I got to help my sister throw her a Superhero Girl party! It was one of my favorite parties to date! The crafts and games around the theme were so fun! She considered a different theme, but once I showed her the SUPER cute Superhero Girl decorations and crafts on the Oriental Trading website, she was sold!

So this post isn’t a mile long, I’ll detail the decor and food here and the crafts and games in another post. Superhero Girl Birthday Party: Decorations and Food

47 Teacher Appreciation Doors

Last month we celebrated Teacher Appreciation week at my daughters elementary school. There were so many creative teacher appreciation doors! I was at the school helping with the Teacher Appreciation lunch and breakfast that week so I walked around and snapped pictures of them. I shared several of them on instagram, but today I wanted to share them here as well. I also collected a few from friends of mine as well as a few from my daughters elementary school a few years ago.

Kindy 500 Car Rainbow Dash

My daughter is participating in the Kindy 500 this week at school. We had so much fun creating this Rainbow Dash Kindy 500 car. The Kindy 500 is an activity for the kids in Kindergarten where they get to “drive” to visit the different monuments in the USA and learn about them. Each child brings a cardboard box to drive around.

Peanuts Birthday Party Ideas

My son is so in love with the Peanuts Movie and LOVES Snoopy, so as his second birthday approached I knew I wanted to have a Peanuts birthday party. Hold on tight, I usually separate these posts since they are so photo heavy, but I’m combining all of the Peanuts birthday party ideas I used into one giant post today!

Halloween Porch Decorations

I’m excited to share with you my Halloween porch decorations this year. In years past, I’ve just focused on my front door (see my SkeletonFrankenstein and Spider’s Web doors that are super easy DIY projects), but this year I wanted to decorate my entire front porch. I was inspired by the severed fingers I made last year to do a Witches theme and I think it turned out awesome! Halloween Porch Decorations - Events To Celebrate

I got a few new pieces to amp up my decor from the Halloween section of Oriental Trading and they were perfect! I still got to do a little bit of DIY crafting, but these pieces saved me a ton of time and look great!

My Little Pony Party Ideas

For my daughters 5th birthday she was so excited to have a My Little Pony Birthday party! I searched the internet for great My Little Pony party ideas and found so many that it made putting this party together super easy. Now, you know I love to get my DIY on when it comes to the decorations, but I’ve been really sick with my pregnancy so this party was all store-bought – and honestly, it turned out so great. My daughter kept saying, “ADORABLE!” as I was setting up the decorations the night before, so I knew I was on the right track!
