THE DO’S AND DON’TS!
You’re getting closer to your little one’s special day of the year. You’ve been privy to your soon-to-be one year older child’s many requests, including the latest toys and hosting a birthday party with all their friends.
In this day and age where iPads and Netflix reign supreme, one of the most difficult things is grasping the attention of children. When it comes to toys that keep kids entertained, there are many trends that come and go (Who remembers scoobies? Or more recently fidget spinners – which are being met with mixed reviews by parents and teachers alike).
AUSTRALIAN BODY ART AWARDS CONVENTION
Owner Daniela was in Melbourne at the beginning of the month, attending the Australian Body Art Awards convention where she brushed up (literally!) on her face and body painting skills! Every year Daniela attends local and international face painting workshops to learn the latest techniques and meet with the creative and talented artists who make up this industry. The international artists who attended the convention and conducted workshops were Sean Avram of Hyper Focus Art, Wolf Reicherter of Wolf’s Bodymagic, and Roxanne Rosa of Roxa Rosa.
After reading an article on the weekend about the trend for kids parties to become less traditional and more original, I couldn’t help but agree that this appears to be the way forward. Over the last few years, it is less about pass the parcel and pin the tail, and more about creating an individual “wow” factor tailored around the ‘guests of honours’ likes and passions.
