How to celebrate BLUE day 2011

Miles is getting old enough now to do some more structured/preschool like activities (which I am super excited about- call me a dork but I LOVE that kind of stuff). So we had our first "theme day" the other day and deemed it BLUE DAY 2011! Here is how to have your own successful (simple and cheap- but oh so fun) blue day!

Invite your friend over for the celebration and ask her to wear her favorite blue shirt! Then make some blue milk and enjoy it with blue straws in blue cups- cheers!

Build a blue block tower....

and have a blue-car-only race.

Blow up some blue balloons...

and have a BLUE dance party featuring songs like:
"Blue Suede Shoes, and Blue (Da Ba De)"

Read blue themed books. Our favorite picks of the day were:


After reading Deep Blue Sea, make your own sensory box of a deep blue sea (this woman's blog is chocked full of ideas for kids, but she does some awesome sensory boxes. It's where I got the idea for this one).

Time for a treat! Make blue Jell-O and enjoy some blue suckers:)

I think I had more fun than the kids, especially during the dance party, which is why there is no photo evidence!
