So as I mentioned in my last post, we had a pink-and-red-heart themed party last weekend for Sweet Pea's 2nd birthday. Whenever the weather cooperates, we like to hold parties outdoors. Early March is a bit cold to have the whole party outside, but we did make sure to get some outdoor play in. Though the birthday girl was a bit young for structured party games, we had a Bubble Wrap Run that seemed to be quite a hit!

We taped down a big piece of bubble wrap (salvaged from our new coffee table), and the little peas and their guests ran, danced, and jumped on it!

Of course I had to try it, and I have to admit that although it does feel great on your feet (a bit like a massage, actually!), I was sort of disappointed that the bubbles didn't pop as easily as I'd thought. I'd envisioned them popping under our feet with each step, but actually you had to push down quite hard and deliberately to pop them. Perhaps if I'd had the big bubble type of bubble wrap? But the kids (2-5 years old) didn't seem to notice that not many bubbles were popping - they had a blast with it!

In the last edition of the Outdoor Play Party, I absolutely adored this Rainbow Tree from Dilly-Dali Art! I haven't been able to rally the peas' interest in doing it yet, but I'm determined to try it - I've already got a tree picked out!
