My children have 4 choices when it comes to celebrating birthdays:
1) An expensive birthday gift
2) Going to a special place with the family e.g. indoor playgrounds or places of interest
3) Birthday party at home
4) Birthday party in school
So far, no one has yet to choose option 4... till now. And I realised to my horror that it is the option that costs the most!!!
The cost mainly came from the party favors. There are 22 students in Jayna's class and I didn't want to fill the goodie bag up with cheap junk food. A lot of time, effort and money went into getting nice and appropriate gifts which match the Frozen theme. We hunted around party supplies stores, toys departments, stationary shops and, yes, even online sources to get everything we needed. This is truly a birthday party that blesses others much more than the birthday girl herself!
At the very least, I did buy Jayna the humongous Frozen balloon which she had been eyeing for the longest time. She enjoyed it for almost three weeks before it deflated. We also found an Elsa wand to complete her snow queen outfit.

Jayna gave ALL the pictured ones
