All the talk of birthdays has inspired me! I usually like to have some sort of dramatic play area set up in the house. Most recently it has been the dress up clothes and kitchen set. The kitchen set was starting to blend into the wall (in other words, no one was playing with it much anymore). I decided it was time to put it away for a while, but didn't know what to replace it with. The girls inspired me one morning when they were pretending to go to a birthday party. We set up a birthday party in the play area complete with decorations, cake, and gift bags for wrapping presents. I included balloons to toss around and blank birthday cards and envelops as well. Many birthday parities have happened in this area since it was set up. It is a good thing all the cake that has been served has just been pretend! We will keep going to birthday parties until a new interest comes a long!
