  1. These are some great party game ideas! You are so right if we don’t have a plan to keep the kids entertained it can go bad really fast boy do I know…lol

  2. My kids are obsessed with Frozen and/or Despicable Me at any given moment, so I could definitely find some party ideas about those. Thanks for the creative tips! We entertain several times a week in the summer and these suggestions will make our get-togethers even more fun.

  3. I love those masks for the Rio 2 party, girls love anything sparkly and the feathers just make the mask. I’m going to think about that when the movie comes to Blu-ray!
