I'm a first grade teacher and my students (and I) would looove to have this collection in our room! The most fun kids' party I created was the celebration held at the end of our unit on breakfast/nutrition. We all wore our pajamas and had lots of (healthful) breakfast foods to talk about and eat and share with the parents who were able to come. We also had a Breakfast in Bed relay race where the children had to race to one end of a field, choose a plastic food that was high in (e.g. calcium) and run it back to the next racer who was laying down under a blanket "in bed." They loved it!

Love all the putumayo CDs. It's like taking a trip around the world without leaving home. The artwork is vibrant, colorful and always makes me smile! It would be fun to have a children's cd to listen with my nieces and nephews

Would love for my grandson! We play lots of music and he really gets into it. He'll be 3 soon, and I'm uncertain of this year's b-day theme, but his mom is very creative, and able to pick a theme and make all the party fixins' herself.

My daughter wanted a bowling party at the fancy bowling alley close to our house. After much deliberation, I finally agreed to let her have her wish. The day we arrived at the bowling alley we found out that the entire place has been rented for a private party and we couldn't even get in. So, thinking quickly we decided to take all her friends to the nail salon first to get their nails done, the owners were very friendly and accommodated us even after hours until all the girls had their nails done. Then we went home, played a few games and the girls all decided to have a dancing performance as teams. They all picked their partners practiced a few times, we ate the cake and celebrated, then it was time to perform. The girls took turns performing and cheering for each other, they had such a great time that by the time their parents came to pick them up, they did not want to leave, they wanted to show their parents their performances. Everyone had a great time and the girls talked for days about the party at school. At the end we did not need a fancy place to celebrate, just a little music and lot of imagination.

I loved a recent one in which my nephew had a whole gymboree setup- perfect to entertain the various age groups in attendance, and as a bonus for the parents, ended up wearing out the little ones from the excitement.

Best kids party we ever hosted was at a local park. Best part about it was how many friends that were able to come. We moved to a new state the next day so it was a great way to have a last hurrah!

My daughters make up the themes for their birthday parties. Last year Carrie (age 5) combined her two favorite things, and we through a big ole' Chinese horse party. There was a horse (pony) for kids to ride. The decorations were red Chinese lanterns. The cake had a horse plus the Chinese symbol for horse on it. For party favors, we gave chopsticks with farm animals on them. Needless to say, the daughter came up with all these ideas! It was memorable. Here are a few pics: http://theothermother.typepad.com/blog/2010/12/carrie-turns-5.html

Exposing American children to music from around the world. Giving them something the average radio station can't give. Now, that is a good thing.

As a teacher in a public school in an urban area, I think anything that helps students to think multiculturally is a wonderful thing. As a MUSIC teacher in a public school in an urban area, I think any music that introduces students to other cultures is a plus. With familiarity comes understanding, and with understanding comes empathy. In fact, I own some of their earlier CDs. Go Putumayo!

We just celebrated my granddaughters 3rd birthday, I cannot believe it. We had decided with the color and of her dress, she had to have a laua party,complete with grass skirts and coconut tops, she had a blast and so we decided to have her pictures also done in the same theme. They came out so cute. Happy Birthday to my darling little girl.

I absolutely LOVE Putumayo's music!!!! I have been a long time fan of the company and share their music with my friends and their children, often buying them as gifts. It is a beautiful way to learn about cultures without travelling. Though you may not always understand all the lyrics, you can concentrate on the sounds of instruments and voices. I recommend this to anyone who appreciates true music!

One of the best kids party we have been to so far was a Tutus and Capes party. The host played kids music throughout the party and had craft stations for the kids to decorate their favor bags then the girls made tutus and the boys made capes. Oh and there was a station where they could get their face painted too. My daughter had a great time. Thanks for the opportunity to try to win the Putamayo CD set - we love them!
