Kids Hollywood Style Party: Glitz, Glamour, And Hollywood Fun!



If your child is feeling a little out of place in a new classroom this year, if it is a special occasion, or if you are simply wanting to throw a special party for your child's friends, why not throw your own kids' Hollywood style party, and help break the ice with the glitz, glamour, and fun of a kids' Hollywood style party?

Whether in your back yard, or another location, you can make a special Hollywood style party for your child. By simply providing things, like inexpensive craft store hats for decorating, party favor jewelry, sunglasses, boa feathers, your child's favorite music, and movies, together with some fun food and games, your child can have their very own kids' Hollywood style party.

o Buy inexpensive party favors such as craft or thrift store hats for the children, and allow them to decorate the hats themselves, party favor jewelry, sunglasses, feather boas, cardboard cut out stars, painted silver, with each child's name printed on them, and inexpensive party favor trophies or paper awards, easily made and printed on a home computer.

o Serve ginger ale in plastic champagne glasses.

o Serve trays of Hors d'oeuvres, such as finger cakes, cheese dogs wrapped in prepared pastry dough, and baked, small pizza bites, to be served on a table draped with white paper table cloths liberally sprinkled with glitter and confetti.

o Age appropriate music from "singers" from your child's list of favorites.

o The use of a karaoke machine, so stars may be born, is another good idea. There is no need to have special karaoke tapes, just let them sing along with their favorite singers! Create your own talent show, letting everyone be a winner, and receive their own award for their efforts.

What better way to help your child have fun, and get to know their friends better, then to have loads of fun with your very own Kids Hollywood Style Party? On your walk of fame, every child can have a star!

Gifts For Kids That Stand The Test of Time

It is tough to strike a balance when buying gifts for kids. Balance between giving them something they will enjoy and treasure which at the same time clears your conscience as a productive children's toy. While it would be simpler to go with the trend of the time and give something that is popular at the moment, probably made out of plastic and definitely not made to last, yet somehow those types of toys do more harm than good. Due to their low quality they do not last and the child too learns to believe that toys are not meant to last and that at some point they break. That is why our kids today do not value their toys, as we did before, but instead quickly move onto another toy which too does not stand the test of time.

To avoid adding to the list of broken, useless toys it is best to find toys that are sturdy, practical and at the same time heaps of fun! How can you find such a wonder toy? With some research you will be able to find providers that manufacture quality worthwhile toys, such as jewellery making sets. This way the child can create her own unique designs that she can wear with pride. It develops in her a desire to create and to take pride in her creations. Construction sets are great for teaching your child to follow given instructions to reach an end goal, such as a furniture set, miniature of course, which allows the child to create furniture, perfect little replicas of actual products. Sewing and knitting kits may not seem interesting, but with their contemporary, easy to carry packaging, children actually enjoy knitting their own designs which again helps develop their creativity. It allows children to grow confidence when working with their hands and develops co-ordination. An embroidery set is another ideal gift which could turn into a lifelong hobby!

Clay modelling and plaster kits are good gift options as well as they allow the child to enjoy endless options at creating. You could opt to give theme specific kits, such as dinosaurs or mummies or fairies depending upon a child's interests. However, simply giving them the clay is enough as children are able to entertain themselves for hours in creative play.

Tips on Storing Beads and Beading Accessories


Thanks to a growing popularity in jewellery making and beadwork, more people are discovering the rich variety of beads available from all over the world. From the tiniest 'seed beads' through to larger, more ornate versions, beads come in a huge selection of types and sizes. But storing them safely in a way that is easy to access and prevents them from becoming lost can be tricky. So how can you bring a little organisation into your jewellery storage and bead collection?

Bead storage boxes

The simplest way to safely store your beads is by using storage boxes that are specifically designed to house loose beads. The cheapest alternative for someone just starting out on their beading hobby is to pop down to the local fishing tackle shop and buy a couple of boxes designed to house fishing flies. These plastic boxes have compartments that are perfectly suited for keeping a selection of beads separate from one another - particularly useful if you don't want to spend hours sorting out one colour from another!

However, specially designed bead storage boxes are perhaps a better option, as they have been created with the beading enthusiast in mind. These organisers are made up of different sized compartments and drawers, allowing larger beads to be housed in more appropriately sized sections. They also come with scoops and tweezers, making handling small beads in particular much easier.

Seed beads normally come in their own plastic tubes, which can be re-used once the beads have been incorporated into jewellery. These are perfect for storing small beads safely and securely and can even be bought wholesale if you have a lot of beads to sort out and store. Small plastic 'snap-bags' that have a top that can be re-sealed are also ideal for sorting out a bead collection, allowing you to instantly see what is in each bag and even labelling individual bags that contain specific beads.

Don't forget your other equipment

Specially designed bead cases have the advantage in that they have an acid-free, sticky surface upon which loose beads can be placed without rolling away. This gives you the opportunity to design a beading pattern before threading, saving time during the design stage. Some of these even have magnets attached to hold your needle, meaning no more hunting around carefully for a lost needle on the floor. These additional features make bead cases ideal for use both at home and when travelling.

The most important thing to consider when picking out the best jewellery storage is what you want to achieve. If you are a serious bead fanatic, you may be looking for a system that allows you to instantly see what you have in front of you and select the appropriate bead quickly and easily. But don't forget that you also need to consider how you want to store your beading equipment. Bead looms take up a lot of space, so a large fishing tackle box with a spacious area underneath concertina-type drawers will be ideal. Small items such as needles and pins need to be stored safely, and valuable tools also need their own storage space. Whatever your requirements, there are plenty of options available that will suit almost any budget, allowing you to keep your beads safe, free from damage and easily accessible.
