I love throwing little tea parties and art parties for my girls instead of traditional play dates. It’s so easy and can really be a lot more fun than just going to the park or inviting a friend over to play. It’s really no more trouble than having them over for lunch and, like this Easy Rocking Princess Party, you can literally throw the whole thing together in less than 20 mintues. The hardest part, honestly, was making my girls wait to get on their Rockabye rockers until their friends go there to play! LOL!
Setting the Stage for an Easy Rocking Princess Party
- Wrapping Paper Hack. Throw down some wrapping paper on the floor. Not only is it fun for toddlers (and even a little older kiddos) to crunch on as they walk, you can just roll it up and toss it in the trash when you’re all done, so you don’t have to mop!
- Calling All Rockers! Just gather all the rockers you have throughout your house and bring them together in one place–kind of corralling the kids, LOL! Ok, so I had a little bit of an advantage here in that Rockabye sent me the world’s cutest rockers to throw this awesome party. You can order ANY of the SUPER-RIDICULOSLY cute rockers straight from Rockabye and get a 40% discount through August 31, just by using: SUMMER40 at the checkout.
I threw this completely adorable rocking princess party…rock music, rockers, my princesses and fun…it was really just a playdate with our friends…but it was SO COOL. #ad #ontheblog #adorable #adorbs #rockabye #rocker #dragon #toddler #toddlers #party #partyideas #partyinspiration #toddlerlife #kidsactivities #kidsofig #toddlersofig #cute #sweet #love
- Turn It Up. A rocking princess party is not a party, nor does it rock, without some killer tunes for the kids to dance to. So, pick some kiddo-appropriate tunes (do they make Pink Floyd Kid’s Bop?) and let the dancing–and the rocking–begin!
- Simple Snacks. When I invite others to a playdate, or even a party, I try to make things that EVERYONE can eat. So, we go with simple things like watermelon lemonade, pineapple chunks, gluten-free s’mores cupcakes and the occasional veggie-chip. Simple things that little ones can handle with those chubby little fingers! LOL! And, because I throw-down the wrapping paper, I’m not so worried about clean-up later.
The Cherry On Top of the Easy Rocking Princess Party
Ok, this is going to sound ridiculous, but the cherry on top of the Rocking Princess Party is the fact that all the little girls get to dress-up as princesses with their tutus and lace (that they don’t normally get to wear) and ride their own personal dragon or pony (or train or pirate ship–my personal favorite Rockabye rocker), and maybe even have a princess hat.
There’s nothing more important than having a little girl who is confident about who she is and who gets an opportunity, even at an early age, to feel beautiful. So, let them dress-up, even if just for a few hours–and pretend to be a princess while you listen to rock music and ride a dragon’s back while eating a cupcake.
They’re only young once, right?
I would love to hear about any awesome ideas you have that we can party with our Rockabye rockers (which are SO CUTE, did I say that?!). Just drop me a line in the comments.
And, if you’re not throwing your Easy Rocking Princess Party RIGHT THIS SECOND, pin this and keep it in your ideas for kid’s activities–because you’re going to want a special way to play one day…
