Impromptu Mad Hatter Party!

This year, we just can’t seem to get a great snow.

My boys are dreaming of snow forts and snow fights and sledding and lots of hot chocolate. But this winter and last just haven’t produced enough snow to have a good play.

On the other hand, a couple of years ago, we were inundated with snow… and snow days!

…After a few days, though, the stir crazy started to set in…

So, drawing inspiration from the Mad Hatter, we had a little impromptu party with some friends from the neighborhood.

I fashioned a Mad Hatter tie from a scarf. I do love a theme!!

And I just used what we had. I stacked all the teacups and saucers down the center of the table and–to add more color–draped all my bright beaded costume jewelry all over it. For a simple craft, we made [what else?!] mad hatter hats, of course! I pulled out a few supplies from my craft arsenal and let the kids create!

For a game, we did a snow clothes relay, racing to pile on like ten layers of clothes. It was such silly fun!

You don’t have to spend a fortune (or even a cent in this case) to make a really fun, laughter-filled time for kids.

So, if your spring–like ours–has turned into Winter Part Two… and you feel yourself going a little stir crazy… perhaps a little madthrow a mad hatter party! Wheeeeee!

Have you ever thrown a cheap or free impromptu party? How’d you pull it off? What would you do again and what would you change? Do tell!
