This is a terrific idea for a birthday party invitation and if your child is old enough to write, he or she is old enough to proudly enjoy making these on their own. And now, a word of advice anonymously lurking on the internet and worthy of sharing, if you didn’t already instinctively know:
“Let Us Spray”
A joy of which I’ll not partake
Is eating children’s birthday cake.
To “blow out” candles, in a word,
Is really patently absurd:
Each puff contains sufficient moisture
To propagate your av’rage oyster.
So, Birthday-Boy and ditto-Daughter,
Withhold from me your whiff of water.
I do not need some little squirt
To atomize on my dessert.
Among the things I will not do
Is have my cake and drink it, too.
- drawing puzzle
- bags and ribbons
Simply write out your party information on the blank puzzle with some colourful markers, break it apart and place in a bag. Tie with a nice ribbon, and you’re all set to hand out your unique invitations. You can also tie a tag on the outside with the person’s name on it. Remember, the time consuming part of doing the writing can be a great opportunity for younger children to practice their writing skills, and using thick markers will speed things up.
