I went to a party as a young child where we had to find our favor or prize by following a string all through the house to get to the end. It may not have been the best party in the world, but to me as a 3-yr-old, it was amazing and one of my earliest memories!

Our son, age 7 has high-functioning autism. Music both lifts his spirits and soothes him. He appreciates rythym, enjoys reading lyrics, and doing silly dances of course! He just memorized the world map (every country on every continent!), so it follows that we could host an "AROUND the WORLD" race party. play Putomayo's new World Party CD, use little mini flags and theme decorations from various countries (it'd be like a kids UN), and offer snacks from each country on the CD at each station. Throw in a folk dance and save the Freezedance and Higher and Higher as the grand prize winnign finale! Prizes could include the CD, a world map puzzle or kids atlas, and treats from Whole Foods, of course! This would be a great gift! Music has the power to transform.

Best party ever, the kids took part in making everything, the pinata, cake, decorating,food choices and games. It was theirs to have and theirs to decide what they would do. Of course there were there were limits set. :)

My son loved the children's book Goodnight Moon. For his first birthday we had a simple party at home on that theme, complete with story reading, red balloons, a "cow jumping over the moon" cake, and stuffed mice hidden throughout the house for the children to find. It was such a sweet little party.

These are great CDs!!! As a music therapist, my kids have loved playing along with drums or dancing to a few of the ones I have.

The best party I have hosted was for my daughter's 4th birthday when I hired a local actor to come in costume (without anyone knowing it was going to happen). It was a Winnie the Pooh party and I had arranged for the special guest to hand out the party favors; little pouches filled with a toy and a book. We did theme related activities and the dessert was not a birthday cake but honey cakes with strawberries on top - just what every good bear would love! We played "Pin the tail on Eeyore" and then went outside to blow bubbles. Suddenly the children heard from around the corner..."teedely pum, teedely pum!". They were all really enthralled with Pooh and each of them got to sit on Pooh's lap for a photo - yet another treat for them. I was so glad I had asked the theater about hiring out the Wiinnie the Pooh from the production we saw - which was a special "pre birthday" treat for my daughter.

Recently my four year old had a princess party. She and all of her little friends dressed like princesses. I had lots of fun planning that one. We would love these CDs. My kids love to dance with me in the kitchen! :-)

The best kids parties were when my mom took us to a local park with a bag of sand toys, balls, and a frisbee and a big jug of pink lemonaid and a birthday cake or cupcakes. Virtually no set up or clean up. No fancy clothes and it was ok to get dirty.

This past winter, I created an elaborate indoor carnival for my son's 4th birthday. I recruited volunteers to help man games, popcorn cart, and a prize booth where the kids could exchange their tickets for goodies. It went off without a hitch thanks to so many who were willing to help!

We love the Putumayo cds! The best kids party we have created is one birthday bash for all 3 of our kids with July bdays outside at our local swimming spot (Wright's Pond). Sandy beach, 2 playgrounds, bathrooms, changing rooms, outside shower, picnic tables etc. No cleaning of my house required! Add some salads, veg and dip, plus some sandwiches and the requisite bday cake and call it done!

My son and his baby friends are about to turn 1 in a couple of months, so I'm sure I will soon have plenty of experience with kids' parties. I can't wait!
