This is the second entry in the Bad Birthday Ideas series. Be sure to check out Bad Birthday Idea #1: Baby Racing.
Plans for our daughter’s first birthday party are progressing and we’ve narrowed in on a guest list. It’s looking like about 10 kids, plus 20 parents, so about 30 people altogether. We’re almost two weeks away now and that’s all we’ve got. I seriously need help getting this thing going. If you’re reading this, please leave me a note with some children’s birthday party ideas, because all I’ve got are some twisted ones from a few followers on Twitter. I’m not kidding, they’re really bad.
Like this next one, which I’m calling Bad Birthday Party Idea #2: Dirty Diaper Pinata.
Your kid probably hates the other children you make her hang out with at those mommy and me parties so that you can enjoy your social life with other parents in your unenviable situation. Plus, everyone knows the 1st birthday party is a party for you, the selfish parent, to celebrate surviving your first year raising a child, and not following through on your frequent thoughts of putting her up for adoption.
But worry not, chances are, she won’t even remember her first birthday party…unless you get The Dirty Diaper Pinata.
A pinata can turn even the most boring birthday party into the event of a lifetime. And what parent doesn’t love a bunch of kids running around swinging a hard stick wildly through the air?
A Dirty Diaper Pinata is loads of fun (pun intended), and easy to make. Here’s how:
1) Go to your local Party City store and buy a pinata. Of course you could make one from scratch, but let’s be honest, if you had that kind of talent you wouldn’t be reading this blog.
2) Empty your diaper genie bag full of dirty disposable diapers and place them carefully into the pinata along side a fantastic prize like a small stuffed animal, cell phone, or some nutritious food item like a Twinkie, bag of M&M’s, or slightly undercooked pork.
3) Unscrew the handle from your household broom, and swing away!
Make sure the kids take turns trying to break the pinata, just one swipe each. The one who breaks the pinata is the winner and gets to take home the prize inside. Yummy!
