Jackson's birthday was a "rocket ship" party, which he was fully on board with 2 months ago when we first started talking about his birthday. The day before the party he decided he wanted it to be a dinosaur party, but alas we had to stick with the rocket ship theme. Today, all he wants to talk about is the guys in Star Wars (thank you Sam and Jeniza for the Star Wars Lego set!).
I collected a bunch of cardboard tubes and got the really cool tape set from Kid Made Modern at Target. Put it on the table with some sparkly silver pipe cleaners, the tops cut off of some party hats (for the top of the rocket) and some markers. Everyone jumped right in and made rockets. It was blast-off awesome superfun!!!
