The Eco-Friendly Birthday Party
I thought I'd post a weekly tip from my One Mom and a Party website to help moms give more eco-friendly birthday parties. Greening up a birthday party doesn't have to be intimidating - just start by taking little steps!
Here is a tip to give you some ideas for a summer party Adventure Theme that you can plan around your own locale and the interests of your child.
This green party theme goes outdoors wherever you are. Walk in a forest, a park, along a lakeside, river or beach. Set a time or distance limit and have the children collect whatever they find interesting then share their treasures with the others at a picnic. Or make it a scavenger hunt and give everyone a list of items to find. See our Montessori inspired party activities for ideas. Give older children a map or written directions and introduce them to orienteering. Or have children come on their bikes and hold a rally, riding skills contest, race or parade.
