The best kids' party I was ever able to be a part of was a school party where we celebrated different countries. It was the end of the year and we wanted to celebrate diversity so each classroom chose a country and then each class took a turn moving from room to room listening to different music, eating different foods, making crafts and even trying on various costumes. We had a blast!

I love using music to interest my students in other cultures and languages. Having music to span the continents would truly enhance their education about the world and peace.

My kids, my husband and I love Putumayo World Playground! It is the greatest combination of rhythms and voices we can all enjoy together ever and ever and ever and ever again!!! We threw a Spring time party for our kids' friends last year: each kid decorated a pot, using their imagination and paintings and stickers. Then kids planted seeds in their pots and took them home. Everyone, parents and kids, had a blast!

For my sons 2 year old birthday we had a "bike" party. Every kid brought a bike, balance bike, scooter, trike or ride on toy to our house. We have a huge driveway and all the kids rode up and down. We had Gluten free/sugar free cupcakes shaped like tires! So fun.

The best kids is the Saturday night dance party we have every weekend with our son to the NPR blues show. Music brings people together across cultures and is hugely important in our home. I think music breaks down boundaries and brings peace- it's the one language everyone on the planet speaks universally.... Thank you for the chance to continue to expose our son to many cultures music to help educate him that the world is a much bigger place than our living room!

The best kids' party I ever attended? It's a toss-up. On the one hand, I loved my friend's son's elaborate pirate party. She did a budget-conscious Martha Stewart and had her husband making balloon pirate swords (which he learned how to do on YouTube). There were two homemade cardboard cutouts of pirate ships which two teams of party-goers hid behind to throw balled up newspapers (cannonballs) at each other. There was a treasure hunt with clues and prizes at each stop. Great homemade party. On the other hand . . . with all the brouhaha that can come with kid parties (extravagant in financial backing and/or parental time and exhaustion to make it homemade), one of my friends goes old-school. Backyard parties, Pin the Tail on the Donkey, musical chairs, pinata. Prizes for one child who wins each game (scandalous!) and opening gifts during the party (what?!?!?) One year, there weren't even goodie bags (aka, landfill bags). The kids seem just as happy, and since it's so rare to attend those kinds of parties, it's refreshing.

Knight and princess party. My son made a large three sided cardboard castle with functioning drawbridge and he helped with a homemade castle fortress shaped pinata. Goody bags were handmade knight's saddle bags for the boys and pink frilly princess bags for the girls. The kids decorated crowns and tiaras we made.

The best parties we have had for our nearly four year old daughter involve everything fun for kids. Music, bubbles, sand, water, healthy snacks, slides, climbing, jumping, hula hooping, crawling, tossing, catching, swinging, running, pedaling, bouncing and some times swimming too. Any kind of kid oriented games along with prizes and goody bags and sometimes balloons. It would be so awesome to include these cds to our music selection!
