A Home Run Birthday Party

Baseball season is finally here and the weather is perfect for an outdoor celebration. We put together this sporty party featuring our Baseball Bat eco-friendly, recycling activity stickers. BPFK_Baseball Party_11 This large sign was designed and then printed at our local print shop and mounted on foam core. It served as our centerpiece. BPFK_Baseball Party_2 We placed lots of peanuts in a clear bowl for decoration and snacks. And had a vintage tin bucket filled with Cracker Jacks. Wiffle balls are way more kid-friendly than the real thing (more laughing, less crying). And, we served up hot dogs for some major league nosh.

For our party activity, we took pics of the kids and assembled DIY Baseball cards. We got lots of goofy faces…we’re big fans of silliness!

The Baseball Bats made festive table decoration and party favors for the take-home goodie bags.

Sustainability Solutions Festival: It’s Time To Find A Better Way

What is sustainability? “It means different things to different people. But it affects us all – how we treat one another, our planet and our future. Sustainability is the greatest opportunity we have today to ensure we have our best possible future.”

We are so honored to be a part of the first-ever ASU Sustainability Solutions Festival held February 17-22, 2014. This fun, full-day event focused on educating, entertaining and inspiring kids and parents about sustainability was held at Arizona Science Center. How can we all reduce, reuse, recycle and innovate for a better tomorrow?

BPFK_ASU_Sustainabilty Solutions Festival

We created a custom eco-friendly binocular sticker for the event and had hundreds and hundreds of recycled toilet paper rolls on hand to upcycle and re-purpose into interactive, simple toys with hundreds of kids. I brought along my enthusiastic little helper so it made the day even more special.

Ghoulish Girly-Girl Party

Pink and black is the new orange and black! This year, we put together a unique take on your typical Halloween party theme – we combined scary and pretty. And boy girl, is it ever memorable.

BPFK Halloween Pink HousesWe started by creating a centerpiece for our table from a row of pretty Pink Haunted Houses made with our eco-friendly, recycling craft stickers. All you need are three empty milk cartons and our Pink House stickers to begin building your party table. We repurposed shimmery fabric to give the illusion of a foggy night. We purchased wooden black trees to create a creepy, yet idyllic tree-lined street. From our central theme, we pulled together other elements to make this an unforgettable Halloween.BPFK Halloween Party Place SettingEach guest is greeted with a personalized place setting. BPFK Pumpkin SandwichesWe made pumpkin-shaped PBJ sandwiches with celery tops. I bet even my little one would be open to trying celery now.

Halloween Pink Houses CakeIt wouldn’t be a celebration without a yummy cake. We picked up this beauty at Tammie Coe Cakes – a bakery up the street from our house.

BPFK Halloween CarrotsWe served up healthy orange snacks. (Sorry, no Cheetos at this party.)

BPFK Mummies Utensil HoldersAs always, at Box Play for Kids, we like to repurpose recyclables whenever possible. These adorable mummy napkin rings can be made with empty toilet paper rolls, wiggly eyes, some gauze and a dab of glue.

BPFK Pink Spider StrawsWe found pink and white polka dot paper straws and embellished them with miniature spiders. We also found a pretty pink and silver ribbon to trim the tops of the black paper cups. It’s all in the details!
