I planned and hosted a (night) star party for my son. We had kids build space stations or satellites out of graham crackers, frosting and various candies, while the kids then listened to a star presentation on CD. Next my husband brought out our telescope and the guests went outside to stargaze and eat popcorn. For the grand finale, the kids watched a special DVD on constellations on an outdoor screen my husband built. The kids fell asleep under the stars and had some unique memories to bring home (I think they all learned something about stars too, but dont tell them that, they had too much fun!)

We love Putumayo music! I check them out of the library for my daughter, but we only own a few, it would be excellent to win them all! Thanks!

I have loved the Putumayo CD's for many years. My children have always enjoyed singing and dancing with them. My favorite child party is when the children make the decorations, invent and then play the games(such as scavenger hunt, or following clues to a "treasure")...with the adults if it is a 'parent' birthday party; help plan the menu, and decorate the cake, or get to decorate their own cupcake. We usually make it a 'run in the sprinkler' party if at all possible.

Everytime we get in the car my daughter demands that we listen to her music - it's the Putumayo Kids Latin Playground. My kids jam in the back while I get to enjoy a relaxing drive to kids music that isn't like kid music, love it!

Music parties are the best! Children of all ages love to sing and dance. The best part is when you have a live performer...what an inspiration to the children. Future musicians created...

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!
