Plan a Stunning Birthday Bash all at Duck Worth Wearing

IMG_1269

Birthdays are occasions that will last in your child’s memory for a lifetime. Making these days special is important and fun. We also know that life with kids has a lot of expenses, and birthday parties shouldn’t stress you financially. Read on in this month’s blog to discover budget friendly birthday themes, games, activities, and gifts to make memories without breaking the bank.

Pick a theme

Themes help set the tone and add structure to the endless selections for a party. Here are a few ideas for themes and accompanying activities and gift ideas.

Theme : Garden Fairy

If you have a birthday that falls in the summer a garden fairy party will delight all of your little guests. You can incorporate garden dirt for the boys and frills for the girls and everyone will have a grand time! Here are some ideas to pull off the theme.

fairy

Melissa & Doug have a Jumbo Princess & Fairy Coloring Pad. These are sold at Duck Worth Wearing. You could use the pages for placemats at the tables for your party and let your guests get into the theme while waiting on cake. This is also a great gift for a birthday girl with this theme.

IMG_7706

Invite your guests to come dressed in their fairy finest. You could give fairy wings out as a party favor. These are also sold at Duck Worth Wearing at a great price! This will also give your guests a take away that will result in many more hours of play and fun.  There are even tutus to help dress up your guests!

IMG_1574

To please all who attend you can plan an activity/take away. At a local hardware store pick up small clay pots. Plan to decorate them with paint pens from your local craft store. Use seeds, perhaps of the birthday girl’s favorite flower and plan them in the pots. Melissa & Doug make a garden line that could be helpful for this activity.

IMG_1576

 

Theme : Farmhouse Fun

IMG_7722Kicking off the farmhouse theme is easy with a farm story sequencing set from Melissa & Doug. This particular toy will make a fun and interactive centerpiece, or as always any child would be glad to receive this education friendly toy for a gift!

IMG_1660

For a fun take away have the kids make jam from fresh picked fruit. Take your party to a local orchard or shop a farmers market for fresh produce. Look up a simple jam recipe and collect mason jars for your activity before hand. Have the kids clean their hands and get to mashing and mixing! It will be messy, so plan to have a vinyl table cloth handy. Mason jars are typically inexpensive and can be used for centerpieces, drinks, and utensil holders.

Theme : Under the Sea Water Fun

IMG_7718

 

Kids love playing in water and a sea theme goes along perfectly with a summer birthday theme. This paint with water coloring book is an activity fun for a wide span of ages.  If it ends up raining and your outdoor activities are canceled, this makes for a great back up plan!

IMG_1580These are just a few of the fun outdoor toys from Melissa & Doug that will help make your party a huge success. The Blossom Bright Summer sprinkler will make your party a hit! Make sure to remind your guests to wear a swimsuit and bring their favorite towel.

Dress for the Party 

Dressing in the birthday party theme will be exciting and fun for your birthday child. Duck Worth has an array of options that change out almost daily. These outfits are available now in store! Come get them while they last.

IMG_7716

This look is formal and will make for great photos for the scrap book!

IMG_7717

 

For a fun summer outing these pair is cool and comfortable. These are just a few options for fantastic party attire!

Parties are fun and create memories. For more ideas follow us on Pinterest!

Planting a Family Garden 101

IMG_4560

There are so many reasons to plant a home garden with your family. It’s a whole body, whole hearted experience that will leave you and your children feeling accomplished and satisfied as you literally see the fruit of your labor blossom out of the good green earth. It can however be overwhelming if you have not had the know how of starting a garden passed down by helpful family and friends. Let our garden guide get you and your family growing gardens and your relationships this spring!

Pick Your Plants

IMG_4547

If you are a first time want to be farmer, it’s best to focus on one element at a time.

 Easy to Grow Vegetables

Tomatoes: Plant these plump vegetables in a bright sun heavy spot. Water a heavy about every 5 days. Prune smaller branches so the plant will put its energy into larger more fruitful branches. Space out the timing of your plantings so your harvest will yield at different times, spreading out your tomato season over several weeks!

Cucumbers: Use your compost of other melons on the soil for cucumbers. Use dark sun absorbing mulch to create a warm and moist soil. Using mulch also helps keep weeds away.

Peppers: Peppers need a sunny home in the soil, that has been rotated with other vegetables. As always a good fertilizer will help ensure the rich nutrients needed to grow a luscious garden.

Flowers: Here is a list of flowers that are easy to grow for first time gardeners.

  • Sweet Peas
  • Marigolds
  • Pansys
  • Cosmos
  • Morning glorys

Fruits: A lot of fruits are grown on trees. Planting trees can be more costly at first, but will yield fruit, shade, and a beautiful aesthetic to any yard. You can grow a few plant based fruits that are super tasty and fairly simple to get going!

  • Rhubarb: You can start with seeds, but for the first timer you will have great success with budded plants. Rhubarb plants are low maintenance but will yield a better harvest if given extra attention. Keep them moist and trim or divide every 5 years.
  • Strawberries: Plant them in a sunny spot as they need about 8 hours of sun a day. Space them 12″-18″ apart. These are a favorite of small animals so read our tips below to keep them safe from critters!
  • Rasberries: Fairly resilient and perennial these bushes will be a great addition to your garden. They do best if you make a bed and keep the roots up and protected. Plant them in the spring for best success.

*Note having your soil tested will help determine if it is safe to gardening your soil

Gather Tools

IMG_4550

Depending on the size of your yard, and current collection of tools, needs will vary. These tools listed below will help you get off to a good start.

  • Small shovel
  • Large Rake
  • Hoe
  • Sheers
  • Hand clipper

Garden tools for Kids

Duck Worth Wearing carries a great line of toys by Melissa and Doug. There are a number of outdoor and well built toys, but they also feature an outstanding line of garden toys. All are available now or by order at Duck Worth Wearing in Ames, IA.

rake

 

Large rake

Your child will be waiting for the leaves to fall so that raking fun can begin! Child-size metal rake has a brightly painted wooden shaft and an easy-clean handle.

Plan Out Your Garden

IMG_4545

Starting small is always best as its easy to expand in future years once you have your basics.

Plan space for your in-ground gardens to allow or watering, weeding and harvest time.

IMG_1459

A good size would be 50-100 sqft with either an in ground, fenced in garden, or a potting box that is raised off the ground and keeps animals away. Don’t have a large back yard or are currently renting? No problem – use colorful pots plated with your favorite flowers to get your green thumb warmed up.

You need 6-8 hours of good sun a day for most plants.

IMG_4558

Maintenance and Harvesting

The beauty of a garden is that you put a lot of work in the planting and care, and if all goes well you will reap a beautiful harvest. The goal is to keep an eye on your garden by weeding frequently, watering, and keeping away the pests.

Enjoy the fruits of your labor!

Jenuinely Pure was founded by a mom looking for PURE, NATURAL and ORGANIC  products to use in her home for her family. Not finding anything on the market that was truly PURE, NATURAL and AFFORDABLE, she started developing products in her home. This venture not only produced  safe and effective products, the founder discovered many friends and  families also wanting to use her products, in their homes. Jenuinely Pure was born. Even though the company has changed hands, the current owners run it based on the same principles.

·          Only PURE, NATURAL and ORGANIC ingredients go into our products.

·          Jenuinely Pure is a family-run business based in the Ames area.

·         We offer a full line of products for the Face, Body, Home and Baby.

·         Our products are full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids to rejuvenate your skin. How do we know they are effective? Because we have used the products in our home for several years and have seen the positive results  dealing with dry skin, eczema, blemishes and other skin irritations.
