Ask your guests to wear shoes with LED shoelaces to add some zing to the party. Hand out white T-shirts and highlighters so that kids can write cute messages on each other’s back! Yellow and orange pens work the best.

Lay out all the yummy food on a table against a particular wall. Use a black cloth or large sheet as a backdrop and decorate it with neon or fluorescent paper flowers or streamers or anything else your kids fancy. Try and get cookies, cupcakes or pastries with neon food colors in them. Using a bright fluorescent cupcake stand is also a great idea.

Use bright neon plastic or paper cups, fun straws to made the food “shine” in the dark! You can also use water proof, acrylic LED ice cubes for the drinks and edible neon sprinkles on the chocolates or sweets…it will make the goodies doubly delicious.

Most kids adore soft, feathery candy floss and if you insert a glow stick in each, voila! They get glowing candyfloss! But yes you should ideally not serve it to very small kids who might think the glow stick is edible.

It’s a kids’ party so don’t forget games. If you have a kiddie pool just throw in loads of glow sticks to get the crowd mad with joy. Or just half fill some empty bottles with water and drop in glow sticks. Glow bowling is ready!

The light projected on the graphic, is very different from the usual night lights. It creates the feeling of being underwater through special effects. That is, you will get to see the water creating waves and will also be able to hear underwater sea sounds!

Though the decal is little more than 22 inches in height, the effect it creates will spread over 20 square feet. So it will completely change the atmosphere of the room. They are so enticing that it’s a great way to help your kids get over their fear of darkness 🙂

CREATIVE IDEAS FOR A SMALL NURSERY

The adventure of parenthood is perhaps the most exhilarating experience ever! The planning for the baby’s room, splurging on all those cute little clothes and toys, deciding the name of your angel, your hopes and dreams and that seemingly endless wait till the baby arrives…

So why let the size of the nursery dishearten you when the space in your heart is big enough? Living in metropolitan cities very often deprives us of adequate space for everything. But here we bring you some great décor and organization ideas for small nurseries…

When the wall of a nursery is as captivating as the images you see above, they help divert attention from the size of the room! Needless to say, wall decals or stickers liven up plain, blank walls and are visually stimulating for the baby too. See more: http://tinyurl.com/qyplf2o; http://tinyurl.com/o2zkh4t

Closed low cabinets efficiently hide clutter and the top can act as a stand for little odds and ends. Drawers under the crib are really helpful when it comes to storing blankets, bedding or extra clothes.

If you have some space for a simple closet or wall unit, then nothing like it. See how some simple rods, racks and bins can solve the perennial problem of storage! Labeling each bin will help recognize which contains what. And we love the gorgeous combination of pink and grey in the second nursery too 🙂 See more: http://tinyurl.com/op3t84l

Use the vertical space as much as possible to save on floor area. This way there will be fewer things to bump into when you move about! Simple open shelves, hooks and rods can support most of the stuff as you can see above. The top of a traditional dresser can easily become a changing station. Don’t miss the dark blue walls in the second nursery. Though dark colors are usually perceived to make small rooms appear smaller, we beg to differ…it can provide an illusion of depth and an interesting background for light colored furniture.

If you are still confused about the décor, going for light colored walls and furnishing is a safe bet…the room will appear bright and airy too. Still, we suggest, listen to your heart and do what is best for your little one…you can never go wrong 🙂

GLOW IN THE DARK TEDDY BEAR!

208432_1_600

This large glow in the dark teddy is more than just a cuddly soft toy…if your kids are afraid of the dark, it can help them overcome that fear! The toy uses colorful LED lights powered by low voltage batteries. The light is composed of quality cotton and lint. It is perfectly safe to use and acts both as a night light and plush pillow or cushion.

The multi-colored lights emitted, stimulate babies visually and for slightly older tots, it is a great way to teach the names of different colors. So besides being uniquely decorative, this friendly bear is utilitarian too 🙂
