You can have all the guests make tiaras or wands
as an additional party favor for the party.
Complete the look and teach them how to make a simple Non Sew Tutu!
Learn how with my free tutorial.
Presew the elastic or buy elastic headbands. Cut the tulle strips ahead of time.
All they have to do is tie them on. Not only will the little girls get to take these home,
but they can wear them at the party to add to the ambiance of the event.
They will remember the party each time they wear their "party favors"!

Little Passports for Your Children This Summer

If your family isn't taking a vacation this summer, Little Passports can help your child "travel" and learn about different cultures around the world. For instance, did you know each year between June 21 and 24, different European countries celebrate Midsummer’s Eve and Midsummer Day (the longest day of the year!), including Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Norway? Traditionally, people prepare their houses for Midsummer celebrations by decorating their homes with colorful flowers and wreaths.

Little Passports has fun facts for your children to learn all sorts of information at their own pace. You can sign up for a 1 month trial, 3 month subscription (Perfect for summer!) or a 1 year subscription. Let me know what you and your kids think of the Little Passports Box when you open the mail next month!
