A 3 YEAR OLD WITH A SWEET TOOTH

Being a nanny to Little Liam was one of the best jobs I've ever had.  Now that hes getting so big and going to school, I don't get to spend as much time with him as I used to, and boy do I miss him all the time!  On the plus side, now when I do get to spend time with him, I can just spoil him rotten!!
The other day his family and Curt and I all went out to ice cream.  Liam managed to eat his whole chocolate ice cream cone, plus half of his dads, then his moms.... then snuck over to me for a few bites of mine!  This kid loves his sweets!
.
Which makes his upcoming 3rd birthday party CANDY theme SOOOOO PERFECT!
His mom and dad and I have been brainstorming for a couple weeks now for perfect candy party activities!  His invitation just came in the mail the other day.  Take a look at this cutie!


Isn't he just the cutest kid!  If only you could see his funny personality, he can melt any heart.
So here are a few pictures from one of my Pinterest Boards with some inspiration for this upcoming CANDY BIRTHDAY PARTY!!


What would a CANDY party be with out a CANDY TABLE!!
This can be an awesome (and cleaner) alternative to cake.  Give the kids a bag, and let them fill it up!


Did you know that your local library often times can be rented out for parties and get-to-gethers?
Its surprisingly affordable, and the best part, you don't have to clean your house.
I think I'm going to make a few of these gum drop wreaths for the front doors.



I love this idea for kid sized lolly pops.  Looks like they just tied cellophane around a few balloons and attached them to PVC pipe.  This makes me think of Willy Wonka's secret candy garden.  Now if only we had a river of chocolate!




I also love this idea of making a giant dot candy paper for party favors.
Just use some large thick white poster board and cut out circles. Put colored tissue paper behind it, and tape on a paper bag to the back (to hold the favor).  Kids break through the tissue paper to get to the prize!! Here is a tutorial on how to make it.


And of course you can't have a CANDY PARTY without a Pinata!!


I'm also planning on dressing up as the crazy candy lady, passing out MORE candy and reading the kids a book.  So far I'm thinking about reading "If you give a mouse a cookie."  Do any of you know of any other sweet treat related kids books?
.
I think this is going to be such a fun party!  I just can't wait!  Were going to have to send all these kids home with toothbrushes!
