My niece loves horses. Stuffed horses, horse figurines, horses her dolls can ride and of course real horses. We recently got to be at her 5th birthday party and Jodie, my sister, pulled out all the stops at making this a great horse party and a super fun outdoor play birthday party!
The kids had several different swings to play on.
And Jodie handmade these adorable sock riding horses for each kid to play with and take home. I loved that instead of filling a little goodie bag with candy, trinkets or other things that would most likely get lost or end up in the trash Jodie made something super unique and fun that each kid can play with for a long time. And she didn't spend much more than what she would have on the bag of junk!
The whole two hour party was outside! They played outside the whole time. Ate lunch as a picnic on blankets in the backyard and even did cake and presents outside. It was great to see so many kids totally happy and content to be outside on a cooler day.
This is how to do a birthday party!
