There are a ton of fun parties you can have with your daycare kids without breaking the bank. I like to keep a summer party as simple as possible to cut down on waste for the environment AND hassle for me. Kids will have just as much fun with a pack of side walk chalk and some homemade popsicles.

Do you teach your kids to celebrate friendship. I don’t know about you, but my friendships are some of the most important things in my life! This past week at Little Sprouts we have been celebrating Friendship week. Its fun to do special events with kids to break up the everyday ho hums of long days at daycare.
I like to come up with special celebrations that don’t cost an arm and a leg and don’t kill me with a million extra things to add in to our day. This week was fun and fairly easy and I didn’t spend any extra money. If you are a daycare provider, you know those pennies are hard to come by.
Having a teddy bear picnic is lots of fun. We have at least one a year at Little Sprouts. I invite the kids to bring their favorite stuffed animal to eat with them and we eat in a special place. This year, the heat index was supposed to be 100 at lunch time and that’s just too hot for me, so we opted for an indoor picnic. I placed a sheet on the living room floor and cooked lunch and packed it in a basket. The kids had so much fun!
