Oh, my sweet little guy. How I love thee! What a joy and a blessing it is to celebrate my boy's fourth birthday. Still generous with hugs and snuggles, loves silly jokes (What is a hat? A HAT!....), and reading books, telling tales, inventing, creating, sewing, building, running, playing and singing songs...Full of wonder, light, and LOVE! Hurray for my little pirate boy!
Jasper's party was so much fun because the girls helped create the activities. Mia and Vivienne created a puppet show, based on a cute book called "The Dog Who Cried Wolf" by Keiko Kasza. David even helped to narrate, and friends from the party joined in. We set up the playstand in the living room to make a stage.
Pappa Pirate introducing the Puppet Show
Vivienne made a treasure hunt, with her own written clues leading to the pirate treasure.I prepared several chocolate coins wrapped in a bandana for each child. The girls also helped to create a pirate cove, with a basin of water, decorated and filled with seashells, coins and little walnut boats floating about.
The kids sneaked upstairs to eat their chocolate coins
Jasper was very fortunate to get many special handmade gifts for his birthday. I will share more etsy artists in future posts! It was so lovely to celebrate his birthday with friends.
