  1. . I liked the Circus Party, Superhero Party, Loot Bag Idea, and Star Wars Party ideals, but the Monkey Party was very different. I found that this was great information. I like doing theme partys, or just hiritng a magician. I found a great magician that I used at my last party that blew everyone away. He was very funny, and very entertaining. Here is his website. Check him out.

  2. If your doing a Superman party for your little guy I have an easy centerpiece idea for you. You will need a square plastic container. I used a large land o lakes container. Tape, construction paper, blue crayon, rock candy, and red foam (we used the kind found in fake flowers). My son and I colored a yellow piece of paper blue, he wanted the yellow to show through for some reason. It actually turned out looking really good. Tape your colored paper all around the outside of container. Make true superman symbols and tape or paste them on both sides. Cut foam to size so it fits in container perfectly. Poke rock candy (use green so it looks like kryptonite) into foam. Keep filling in foam until it looks like a huge kryptonite rock. It is cute and easy to do.

  3. Love the monkey party! There is so much inspiration for DIY parties on the Internet, especially Pinterest, that there really isn’t any difficulty finding the inspiration to do it yourself 🙂


  4. I let my kids have a farting party. I gave them all beans and then let them outside. They had a rootn tootn good time. Peace out Eagle Scout ?
