After we were done with homeschooling this morning, Marty, Gabe, and I headed over to my MIL's house to go shopping at the Store of Mom. See, over the years, my MIL has had many careers and had a serious addiction to many crafts. She has designed and sewn haute couture gowns (including one a wife of an NC Governor). She has baked cakes professionally. And, she has quilted, crocheted, cross stitched, and knitted. She has more supplies for all of these things than the average person would ever need. So, when I'm baking, especially when I need a specific size cake pan, I head on over to the Shop of Mom.
Joey's birthday is a week from this Sunday and his party will be a week from this Saturday (the 14th). I always let the kids pic what kind of cake they want for their party and, this year, he wants a pyramid cake. I told him I could do it but it would have to be a step pyramid. I just knew my MIL would have the sizes of pans I needed and I was right. She also had the full sheet cake pan I will need to make Gabe's Ms. Pacman cake 2 weeks after Joey's birthday. I am so lucky to have free access to all these baking tools.
I don't have to worry about party favors or crafts for Gabe's party because that's just a family affair. However, I need to come up with something for Joey's party. Anyone have any ideas for Egyptian themed crafts or party favors?
Ooooh, I did a google search for Egyptian crafts and found two fabulous sites DLTK's Egyptian Crafts for Kids and a great page at ThinkQuest with Ancient Egyptian crafts. I will have about 6 kids plus mine. Which crafts do you think would be the biggest hit?
