Circus Theme Party - Menu Ideas?

Hi Mamas, We're doing a circus theme for my kids' birthday party next weekend, but I'm stuck on the menu. It seems all I can think of for "circus food" is junk: popcorn, cotton candy, giant pretzels... We're going to have corn dogs, probably a fruit salad, lemonade, and cake for dessert, that enough? It seems like we should have more! Any suggestions? (young guests, age 6 & under, and we're going for cheap here!) Thanks!

Toddler Dinosaur Party Ideas

My son's 2 year birthday party will be here in October. It will be a dinosaur theme with a few relatives and other toddlers invited. So far I'm going to hide small dinosaurs and other related objects in the sandbox for digging. I'm also going to make a dino board with holes for the kids to throw bean bags through. I already have a cake planned out. I'm looking for other fun ideas to add to the party....either activities or food or decorations. THanks!

Other Princess Options/ No Disney!

My almost 3 year old daughter has become very interested in princesses. We don't watch TV except for the occasional Mr. Rogers, but she has picked up "Disney Princess Fever" from some girls at her preschool. I am strongly against giving her anything with these princesses on it, because I feel they are way too skinny and way too sexualized for little girls. I am having trouble coming up with any alternatives. We find lots of great library books that have princesses that are magical, made of paper, little girls, etc, but where are they...

Having Friends over - Would You Want to Be Asked first...horses, Pond

My kids are ages 11,9 and 8. (also have a 1 year old, but she doesn't ride horses, yet :) Whenever the kids have friends over, I always ask the parent if it's ok before I let the kids swim in the pond or ride the horses. We have rules about these activities and the kids know them well. Just today one of my son's friends wanted to swim in the pond. I told him I hadn't asked his mom if it was ok first. He wanted me to call her at work, which I didn't do because I didn't want to bother her for something like that. I'm now starting to...

Do You "Mama Bear" for Your Nieces or Nephews?

I am super protective of my kiddo's (8, 6, and 4). While I do let them learn lessons and teach them how to handle things, sometimes they need a parent to step in for them. I have NO problem doing this. I am polite, but firm, and get my point across every time. Today my younger sister calls me upset over the way the two boys she nanny's for (7 and 4) are treating her daughter (2). My niece has me wrapped around her little finger and I really don't take kindly to people being nasty to her...but also work to teach her when she is with me. The...

Winnie the Pooh Party

Does anyone have any ideas for party favors for adults for my sons 1st birthday party. The theme will be Winnie the Pooh. I have received responses asking why adults are receiving party favors. Since the first birthday party is usually for the adults to celebrate I thought it would be nice to give them a little something. I did not do this for any of my oldest sons birthday but wanted to try it this time.
