The best party was just my 2year old, her daddy and myself digging into her cake and watching her wear her new backpack!

We went to a great birthday party at a friend's house recently. 15 3 year olds jumping in a jump house, eating cupcakes, playing in water. So much fun!

The best party I've created was for kids at a daycare I work for! We did finding nemo style and the kids got to dress up in swimsuits and go swimming, coloring Nemo pictures, watch Finding Nemo, eating blue jello with gummy fish, and bake their own cupcakes and decorate with colored frosting, sprinkles, and gummy worms and fish!

I did a mardi gras party were we did pin the teeth on the alligator, ate King cake from New orleans, Pralines and homemade Jambalaya. We played zydeco and new orleans jazz. The Jambalaya was the surprise hit - even with the little kids.

It's always a party in our house. When Putomayo is playing, the kids are dancing and singing! When rain changed our birthday plans, we dressed up and turned up the volume on World Playground. Thanks for saving the day!

As a preschool teacher, I use the Putumayo’s Kids Playground series for many different activities in the classroom. From soothing music at 'rest time' to cheerful music for Yoga at Circle Time to energic music for transitions (or for long, rainy days when we cannot go outside to the playground). These CDs are great for so many different activities with kids. I also value the exposure to different languages and instruments. Even though they may not know 'the words' to the songs, I will often hear my students singing along with a favorite track from a Kids Playground CD. We love them all!

The best birthday parties are the simple ones. Good food, good friends, fun music and a piñata! I would love this CD set not only for birthday parties and play dates but for in the car and at home. We like to groove when its clean up time or any time.

Putumayo can be relied on for their full and eclectic samplers. I would be pleased to hear a collection I can hear with my grandchildren!

We just had gnome party for my 6-year-old. The guests made little "gnome homes" - terrariums with fresh moss and wee painted mushrooms. The cupcakes were toadstools too. We love Putumayo!

We had a tea party for my daughter's 8th birthday. We asked the guests to wear their Sunday best dresses. We served finger foods & tea cakes along with their pink lemonade aka "tea." Each of the girls got to take a tea cup and saucer home. All 8 of them were different.

I've been a long time fan of putumayo albums. And as a new mom I love that there are great children's choices. I'll definitely plan to add this to out collection. The best kid party I ever attended was for a friends daughter. There were lots of games and activities. My favorite one was where the kids made t-shirts for their parents using their hands to form the shape of a heart. Just so sweet.

We had a firetruck/firefighter themed party for my 3-year-old that was just awesome! We had the firetruck stop by (gave them a donation and they were happy to stop by and show the kids the gear and their waterhoses), had a jumpy house/slide in the shape of a firetruck, used fire safety coloring books in the gift bags and asked for donations for burned children instead of gifts. It was great!

My 6 year old daughter loves this music and the rhythm. She will be the envy of all of her dance classmates.

My Husband and I threw a fabulous Artic Party for our daughters 1st birthday. I made snowflakes and hung them from the ceiling and put Fake snow around the house with an assortment of artic animals. W also had sandwiches cut into artic animal shapes, a goat cheese igloo with goat cheese and olive penguins,Walrus and polar bear cupcakes and pin the tusk on the walrus. Super fun and fantastic!

It is a beautiful gift to give your child, that there is a world out there, that is different from his or hers. Music is a great avenue to do this with because all kids love music.

May not sound like much, but the best kids' party I ever created was an impromptu dance party with my three children at home on a Friday night, after a week of grad school and day care. No money spent, but the most fun we all had. We danced to children's music until we fell out. Everyone went off to sleep without a fight :)
