Harry Potter -Mini Playing Kit-

We do have a few Harry Potter fans here, and spells are flying from every corner of the house. (Shame it doesn’t work though, I will do with a few Quietus! Repairo! or a good Accio! spell to find a lost sock 😉

After reading all the books, we made a little potions kit and my son carved a wand in a Gumtree branch:

Now the children have hours of pretend play ahead!

Circus Party -Part1-

You remember that Pirate Party where the children had to catch a real hen to find the tresor?

Well now it is my daughter’s birthday and the theme is going to be fun:

Let’s the greatest show on earth begin!

After spending a bit of time on Pinterest we found cute animal jars to make. After painting the lids and the little plastic animals with acrylic , we just super-glued them together to have those beautiful Mason Jars!

 We will use them as Lollybags for the guests.

Pirate Party Part 3 -Cake and Treasure Hunt-

Heureusement que nous Ă©tions deux familles pour organiser une fĂȘte comme celle ci. La prĂ©paration de la chasse aux trĂ©sors nous a bien amusĂ©: les chĂ©rubins ont du attraper des poules, courir, chercher, creuser, tirer, affronter un papa-molosse et une mer de requins, se faire un feu, chanter et enfin trouver le trĂ©sor pleins de pierres prĂ©cieuses!

Fortunately we were two families to organize a party like this one. The preparation of the treasure hunt was really fun: the children were of catching chickens, running, searching, digging, pulling, face an angry-dad and a sea full of sharks, starting a fire, singing and finally finding the treasure full of gems!

Papier vieilli dans du thé et brulé sur les bords. Paper aged in tea and burned all around.

Qui veut du gĂąteau-galion maintenant?   Let’s enjoy a piece of cake now!

Pirate Party Part 2 -Decoration-

Pas de pirates sans navire…ou radeau (un peu plus facile Ă  construire! ) A l’abordage!

No pirates without a ship…or a raft (easier to build!)

Un peu de dĂ©coration pour se mettre dans l’ambiance, mĂȘme la photo tangue..

.A bit of decoration to make it more realistic, even the photo is pitching…

Et ne pas oublier les munitions (mini pétards).

Let’s not forget the munitions.

Pirate Party Part 1 -Hats-

En plein dans les prĂ©paratifs d’une pirate party, voici le premier accessoire indispensable Ă  la fĂȘte: le chapeau pirate!

To start a pirate party, let’s make the pirate’s hat!

Il suffit d’avoir de la feutrine, de la vielle dentelle et une plume d’autruche!

You will just need some felt, some old laces and an ostrich feather!
