The day has arrived, quicker than you could ever imagine, your baby's first birthday! You want to make this first celebration of life fun, significant and memorable for both your little one and your guests, but how? We suspect you still find it challenging to shower and dress by noon, let alone plan an elaborate complicated party.
Fun and Activities
Baby showers are always a lot of fun for not only the expectant mom but also for the host and the guests. Shouldn't it be anyone who’s pregnant?

We're having the whole family over for Thanksgiving. There are several little ones, ages 2 to 8. I need a project to keep them busy. Do you have a suggestion for me?
A Thanksgiving tree can be drawn, cut out and hung up on the wall. Then cut out leaves in fall colors to add to the tree. The fun part is writing something that you are thankful for on each of the leaves. Be sure to include everyone in the fun, even the pizza delivery boy!
Do you have little kids in the house? They love creative crafts and then, of course, they want to give their creations to someone they love as a gift, eager for applause. With Christmas coming, start a craft box with a few basic supplies so they can make amazing little gifts for family, friends and teachers. A handmade gift is always special and unique. There is pleasure in the making and then more pleasure in the giving.
All kids are creative. Just observe their wonder in playing with sand or old boxes or pots and pans. Some latest toys, no matter how colorful and fancy, attempt to be too much and do too much. Yet, give kids just basic craft supplies and they discover, all by themselves, an endless joy of creating something new out of almost nothing. Creativity is such an important pleasure for children and for all of us.
Suddenly it's cool to travel with baby, and now it is practical, too. Hotels across North America are recognizing babies and babies-on-board as valuable clients with new, deluxe accommodations.
It's hard to believe that this is the 12th month and your child, now a highly individual person, was a tiny, helpless infant only one year ago. Many developments have taken place, but many more are yet to come!
