Peppa Pig is all the rage and rightfully so. It is hard not to be glued to the television as this adorable little girl pig, her family, and other animal friends, all bearing human characteristics, go about their everyday activities. Just like the boys and girls watching these 5 minute episodes, they attend playgroup, go swimming, visit relatives, go to the playground and ride bicycles. All the while, the narrator of the series reinforces the action and humor, saying things like “Oh, dear” when something unfortunate happens (such as George starts crying) or “Look out!” when a character is doing something unsafe (such as Peppa riding her bicycle without looking where she's going). If you have not yet caught an episode, just ask your son or daughter what channel to watch!
Have you walked outside lately? We spent a week in New York recently and it was so hot and humid we could barely walk around the block. We headed down to the beach but got bitten alive by biting flies. All I wanted to do at that time was to jump in a cool clean pool and ever since I have been obsessed with the idea of hosting a pool party. And now that we are home, we have begun planning just such a party for late August, a celebration of family and friends and our last chance for some summer fun before the kids go back to school.
Step one – choosing our pool party invitation. We truly believe that choosing an invitation is the equivalent of choosing the title of a paper … it sets the tone for the entire party! A great invitation — even before the party begins creates a sense of anticipation, especially in children. Think of all the time your own child spends looking at those invitations on your refrigerator. We are featuring just a few of our favorites from Zazzle, and if you order quickly you can still take advantage of their Christmas in July sale and save up to 65% off all invitations! Even if you missed this sale keep your eye out for the banner that runs across the top of the page – and be sure to click it to save!
