Fabulous Fun

Yesterday I took the girls and my Mum to the State Library to see 31 Circus Acts in 30 Minutes. Oh my this was so much fun. It was fast, funny and very entertaining. The performers were all hugely talented and put on such a great show. The performance went so fast and was so great there was no time for boredom or fidgets. Its on till the 25th of January, so don't miss out.

There was heaps of fun activities after woulds at the State Library all with the circus theme. The girls made crowns and took part in a Grand Parade. We also tried our hands at juggling and plate spinning. There was also hula hooping but to maintain my eldests non embarrassing Mum status I left that activity for the kids.

Talking of my eldest, she turns 11 next month. (Oh my the teenage years are around the corner). How can my little one be this old! She originally asked for a sleepover party with 12 friends. OMG, OMG, OMG. I have managed to talk her down to Sunday afternoon tea instead. How I ever did that I don't know. Holly molly I think I would need to take some prescription medicine to deal with a sleepover party. We have however decided to order a cake from the The Cupcake Company. Below is a picture of one of their creations. I'm a crap baker, I've tried and failed on many an occasion. So hand it over to the experts I say.

I am going to make a little purse for each of the party attendees. Any ideas of cute, fun, easy to make and of course cool goodies to put inside would be greatly appreciated.

Oooh circus performances are so much fun! I did walk through the SLQ on Monday & noticed all of those fun circus activities. You should have had a go with the hula hoops. Hey, maybe you could sneak back there for a kid-free play session if you're afraid of embarrassing them ;)

Hope your daughter has a very happy birthday! The little purse idea for each of the party goers is a great one. I can't think of what you could enclose but if I come up with any ideas I'll let you know.

the purse idea is great. they will love it. you can get things like lip gloss pretty cheap these days from cheap shops. girls love that kind of thing especially in a little purse. you could also buy those chocolate gold coins aswell and shove them in there. make it like a ladies purse but kid like.

Those cakes look delicious! I'm glad I'm not the only one who orders cakes for birthday parties. Long gone are the days of staying up the night before stressing over icing ;P

Yummy cakes, little purses! Can I come? I think the lip gloss idea is great! I'm not sure what else 11 year old girls like these days. I was just mad keen on horses.
