Our best birthday party for boys (and some girls) was a model rocket party. When everyone arrived, they selected a model rocket to build. We had selected ones that were rather easy to start with. We helped those that needed help and invited a few older boys to help the others. We used hair dryers to help speed up the drying process. We then drove everyone to a nearby middle school that had a huge open field. Each guest got to launch his/her rocket. Much excitement and pride. We returned to our home for ice cream and cake.

When my daughter was 3, we had a mermaid party...with real mermaids, at Florida's Weeki Wachee Springs park. We had a picnic, saw the show, went on the boat ride on the river. She was amazed. At the time, the attraction was under threat of falling to developers, but fortunately now it is a State Park...and it still has mermaids!

We did a playdough party once and the kids loved it. They asked for it again and again.

My husband is Korean, so for my daughter's first birthday we had a dol. It was so much fun learning about the traditions. As part of the celebration a number of different items were placed before our daughter (thread- for long life), (money- prosperity), etc. It struck me during the party that with all the hopes and unspoken "expectations" we have for our little girl we hope she continues to grow and chooses things that give her joy. Parenthood is such a gift we can't wait to celebrate many future birthdays.

Our best kids party has to be when our 7-year old suggested to host a teddy bear breakfast tea party, donating all the gifts to children in the hospital. She even shared the party with a classmate who had the same birthday as hers (double the gift donations). All the guests dressed in PJs and brought a teddy bear friend who participated in the events. There were various stations including a teddy bear hospital, a picnic, and a tea party. While the guest had breakfast the teddy bears hid for a game of hide-and-seek. We had a puppet show, put on by siblings, and teddy bear crafts before dessert. It as a wonderful morning event.

Our 4th grade team had a Caribbean themed day and each classroom had a different fine arts activity. My room was Dance Island and the kids danced to songs such as the macarena and the limbo. The kids then had to create their own dance to a song from the Putumayo’s Kids Caribbean Playground. Although we didn't call it a party, it was a PARTY!

My daughter had a craft party for her birthday and she said it was "the best ever". They had fun finger foods for lunch and then did some "girly" crafts (keychain, hair barrette and sparkly ornament). We had the Curious George soundtrack playing in the background which added to the festive mood. We don't yet own any Putumayo cds but would love to. My daughter's teacher plays them for the kids in her class.

We had a princess party at the Center for Puppetry Arts. Before we went to watch a puppet show called "Cinderella della Circus", we put on tiaras and treated my three year old niece to a princess birthday. I gave her a Putumayo cd, which my sister says the entire family loves.

I enjoy using the KIDS WORLD PARTY Cds when I teach poetry and art to young children. The music plays in the background as they draw self-portraits or images of their favorite things. The CDs are especially inspirational at the year-end gala for parents and students. It adds so much joy to the event, as children dance along to the beautiful beats. What an amazing collection this would be to own!

Putumayo is my absolute favorite collection of songs from around the world! I have been buying these albums since 1999 and feel that they have introduced me to so many amazing artists!! I have given a few of the Children's albums to my parents & in-laws to use in their classrooms so that they can expose their children to music from around the world at a young age...Lots of love to you all Putumayo! Thanks for what you do! ~Vanessa

I just threw my son a Mickey Mouse birthday party. We went all out, it was a whole lot of fun. I made Mickey ears for everyone in attendance and they still love them!

The best kids party we attended was at an empty warehouse. The host brought in tables, chairs, games and crafts. The kids was able to run free and do whatever craft they chose. They were not on a schedule and there was plenty of people to help them. My son said he did not hear "don't spill" once!

My daughter's 5th birthday is August 14 and we are doing a "camping" theme. We will set up the tent and do smores, bubbles, "find the hidden bugs", etc.

My favorite kids party was held at a flight simulator place for my son & his friends. I even gave the flight simulator a whirl, even though I crashed each time I was trying to take off from the aircraft carrier.
