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 ūüėČ

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 étions deux familles pour organiser une fête comme celle ci. La préparation de la chasse aux trésors nous a bien amusé: les chérubins 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 trésor pleins de pierres précieuses!

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 g√Ęteau-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 √† construire! ) A l’abordage!

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

Un peu de d√©coration pour se mettre dans l’ambiance, m√™me 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.
