stART/Birthday Party


This week for our stART theme I decided to work the theme around Selena’s Birthday Party. We had some friends of ours, Kelly, Nicki, and Lindsey from The Traveling Fenns come over to help celebrate Selena’s early birthday.

We started out having lunch together of Subway Sandwiches. Then we brought out the Cupcakes. I looked for some Princess decorations for the cupcakes, but settled for clowns.

Now for the stART, I had Nikki read the story. The story is about a Princess who is struggling to remember to use her manners to say please and thank you. It is a cute little book.
