Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Party

It’s time to celebrate National Piano Month with our very own Piano stickers (which also happen to be one of our most popular styles).

As we were prepping for the photo shoot, our 5-year-old had the best idea…”Why not paint the egg cartons black so they look like real pianos, Mommy?” Brilliant!  So the first thing we did was paint 10 recycled egg cartons black, then we applied our Piano stickers. Wow, what a difference…our pianos really popped!Box Play for Kids Piano PartyWe printed 10 copies of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on aged paper then rolled up each music sheet and tied them with a gold string. We found wooden stars at the craft store and painted them a metallic gold. And added some colorful, festive balloons to match the music notes.

But after a little bit of research, discovered he did not actually compose the famous tune. It’s an old French melody titled “Ah! Vous Dirai-Je, Maman” (“Shall I tell you, Mother?”) However, at age 25, Mozart did compose a set of 12 improvisations on “Ah! Vous Dirai-Je, Maman.” The kids loved the masks so we kept them in the mix anyway.

As always, it’s not a party without great (classical) music and yummy treats. We continued with the black and white theme and had our local bakery make these star cookies.
