Miss Heather Tidies Up

I was cleaning out my office today and found some notes scribbled on a piece of paper: "Runes, scavenger hunt, chocolate gold coins, glowing water beads, and a disco ball!"
I think I have the best job in the world when that's my to-do list. At the time I jotted these words down, I was planning two fun events for the kids: A Hobbit party for all ages [the picture to the right is of a girl making her own "Hobbit-tat"!) and a Glow in the Dark party for tweens.
We love being able to plan and run programs for kids--please send us your ideas for future events! A spa party? Robot Day? Let us know in the comments...
