Sponsored a local musician to lead a drum circle at our local library. It was a hit!

My kids are still little, so we have not had to do anything creative yet. The biggest hit is having the party at the local farm with hayrides and/or pony rides. The farm animal theme is easy to make games up as well.

made my son a flubber style cake but, ended up looking like a lab from flubber. we lived in bkk at the time and so, we had a thai mugician and lady helpers and then we had a bouncy which was a maricle we got one. it was a international girl that brought one from her aulsralia and rented it out to internationals while she lived there. so, much fun. the house was decorated and gift bags where given and we had so much fun and all the thia kids had so much fun they had never experienced that before.

We love Putumayo in our house! The best kids' party I've ever been to was a summer party with a giant water slide and lots of yummy summer fruits and vegetables.

Best kids party I attended has to be my cousin's kids party. It was Superhero themed. She went all out making every little detail so special. She created all her own cup cake toppers, bottle labels, and even cut outs the kids could take photos in. EVerything looked straight out of a comic book. There were even handmade capes and masks for every kid there! And not to mention all the grown men that got to play the best dress up ever...they dressed up as super heroes (superman, ironman etc) for the kids amazement. It was truly a special birthday for her twin boys and we had so much fun.

My favorite parties are simple. Kids running around the backyard on a shady summer afternoon, playing tag or imagination games, with balls or sprinklers. Family and good friends, good food on the grill, some great music. Roasting marshmallows over a bonfire while it gets dark and chasing fireflys. I think these CD's would fit our summer neighborhood parties perfectly!

Putumayo's music is something we can all enjoy on car trips without anyone threatening to throw themselves from the car. I'm pretty sure Barney the Dinosaur can't make the same claim.

All boys need is an Indoor playground/jungle gym. Pizza and cake were served along with lots of water. The kids were still sweating even though it was totally air conditioned. Fun was had by all! I speak French and would love my kids to learn more from the Putumayo Kids Playground CDs.

Best party was a bike parade party for 5 year old. All of his friends brought their bikes over and we decorated the bikes, had races, obstacle courses, and lots of prizes.

A simple gathering of a couple of my daughter's close friends was perfect for our two-year-old's birthday party. Nothing fancy or over-the-top, just some play-doh to smoosh and trikes to ride. They all had a great time. (And we actually had a Putumayo Kids cd playing as background music!)

We've had many house parties for our kids birthdays. Playing old fashioned games is the best! They play drop the clothes pins in the jar, pin the tail on the donkey, musical chairs, and sometimes we get a pinata. Everyone goes home with a prize.

We just threw my daughter a princess party. We turned our entire garage into a castle. We used huge boxes to paint towers and put princess faces in the windows. We bought a ballroom backdrop to cover the walls, hung silver and blue tablecloth covers from the ceiling, and got huge cutouts of the princesses. The girls decorated crowns with jewels, ate royal sandwiches and my mom made an amazing castle cake, complete with a moat, flags and even a frog prince!

Have been checking out CDs for the group since a previous giveaway and we love the music. Would love to add the set to our personal collection. When my youngest turned 5 last year, I planned a party at the park - weather in Mesa was great for March - a host of 5 yr olds - good food - simply/frugal games -wear them out and let them go home to nap!! Fun for all. You can't miss with water balloons!!

We had a spy party for my son last year, complete with all types of spy music and training activities. The kids loved it!
