ENTERTAINING: Teletubby Birthday Decorations

I made some Teletubbie activities for the kids. I painted one of each of the Teletubbies and then cut out the faces so the kids could put theirs in and get their photos taken. I also made a tubby custard and a Noo-Noo. The Tubby Custard board had a big hole in it so that the kids could toss in bean bags. I made bean bags out of brown felt that I cut into circles, filled with rice, sewed up and then drew on a happy face. For the Noo-Noo (not pictured), I cut out pink paper in splats and they were the tubby custard and put tape on them so they could pin the custard on the Noo-Noo.

How fun and lucky for your kidlets...
I know some people pooh-pooh the effort to make your own stuff for kids' birthdays but it really does make all the difference. I still remember with love the cottonball chicks with sequin eyes I had as table deco at one birthday and the (really tall)castle cake my parents made together until well into the wee hours of the morning for my b-day the next day. That's love, I tell ya. That's something kids don't forget, even as vague, happy memories

ooh. It made me so utterly happy to make all of this stuff. I know my kids will like the pictures years from now even if they don't remember it really. I love doing all of it.

Honestly...Where do you find your energy? Do you have Elf's/fairy's come in at night to help you with all the wonderful things that you do?

I can't even find time to do a all out meal like you do. Let alone paintmy toe nails.

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I won't tell...What's your secret?

I took art classes in SF years ago and you did a wonderful job on your art work.

Your a amazing woman Gabby, and a wonderful mom, the boys are going to enjoy those pics years to come.
