Want to throw a fantastic robot party for your little boy or girl? Perhaps you’re going for a robot-themed baby shower. What a fun idea! These robot party supplies will help you deck out your space to get everyone in on the robot fun.
Now that spring has officially arrived (hooray!), the kiddo and I are enjoying the warmer weather and reading lots of books about bugs, birds, butterflies and gardening. One of our current favorites is The Surprise Garden by Zoe Hall. The pictures are so vibrant and colorful, and the text is short and sweet to keep little ones interested. We created a fun watermelon paper plate craft to go along with the book because, in the end, they enjoyed the spoils of their labor with a fun garden party with all their fruits and veggies.

Nearly every year, I make our son’s birthday party invitations. I only mail a few out (to the grandparents, for example), and I send the others digitally via Facebook or email. I also post one to the Facebook event for the party and put one in his digital scrapbook for that year, so I want the invitations to look cute.
And now that he’s going through his superhero phase, making his invitations is a whole lot easier with BeFunky’s photo to cartoon effects. They’re perfect for turning photos of your kid in his/her superhero costumes into fun art for the invitations!
For today, we’re going to use this photo of Ben in his Captain America costume. Just look at that cute smile and crazy hair!
Now let’s upload the photo. Note that you’ll need a BeFunky Plus account ($4.95/month or $2.91/month if you sign up for an annual account) to save the effects to your photos, but you can preview the effects for free. Click on the screenshots below if you need to see larger versions.
