Happy 3rd Birthday Hope

Hope is very excited about her ABCs this year, so I had fun with an ABC theme for her party. I made cupcake piks for mini cupcakes with each letter of the alphabet. I hung pictures of Hope for each I made various signs for the snacks like "L is for lemonade" or "P is for pasta." I found some ABC pasta. We cut sandwiches into the letter H for Hope. Our activities included making necklaces or bracelets with letter beads to spell our names, stamping with letter stamps, fishing for magnetic letters, and "puzzle walk" that had one letter of the alphabet for each puzzle piece to make up an alphabet train - when the music would stop, each child got a puzzle piece to hold on to in order to put the puzzle together in the end. After cake and presents I read "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" and then we did some dancing and twirling to some alphabet songs. Overall, a very fun party!
