A Parfait Party - Part One

today we held a parfait party in honor of masyn's seventh birthday!
we had a water balloon toss,
although 'tossing' wasn't exactly what was going on and mackenzie got a bit wet!

then they were given sidewalk chalk to draw there own ice cream cones.

hula hoops were a HUGE hit.

and so was the ice cream cone relay race. and i have to say, i didn't think the kids liked it so much until towards the end of the party all the girls asked if they could do it again and again. it was a big hit and a super easy activity!
(a little side note...make the water balloons bigger than i did to make it a bit more challenging)

after the activities, the girls sat down and enjoyed thier parfaits, root beer floats or ice cream cones {some had all three!}, a little story time {i read fancy nancy} and gifts.

i think everyone had a good time and i have to give a HUGE thank you to my helpers!!! i definetly couldn't have done it without them!!!


stay tuned for the details.
