Last week we were invited to attend a Special Birthday Party by The Birthday Party Project! If you haven't heard of them you can find out more information here.
Last month, for my daughter's birthday, she requested no presents be given to her, instead she wanted to donate new clothing and shoes to kids which are less fortunate than herself. My daughter is a very caring and loving little girl and I thought it was petty special that she wanted to do this at such a young age.
My husband and I thought it would be a great experience for all of us to take part in the birthday party. We helped decorate and run the craft tables. My kids helped with Sand Art table.
About 48 kids showed up, of which 8 wee celebrating birthdays this month.
It was so fun to watch the kids excitedly go from craft to craft and make something that was their own.
Everyone gets a cupcake, but the birthday kids get their own mini cake! I thought that was a great idea! The kids felt so special receiving their own cake!
The kids enjoyed opening their gifts and seemed to love them! We brought a huge bag full of clothes and shoes for ages 12 months to 10 years old. The Birthday Party Project was very grateful for our donation. This is such a worthy cause and we are so excited we got to be a part of it!
Both my kids said they liked helping others and want to do it again! I love when a life lesson can be enjoyed by all!
