Color party! At home fun for ALL ages!

December 4, 2018 by  
Filed under Family Fun!, Instead of TV

I was a little skeptical. I’ve never done or seen a “color run” but I know many of my daughters’ friends have done them and loved it. Just seemed like a big mess to me but, whatever. To each his/her own.

But then I heard about Just Add Color.  The lights went on and I thought – YES!  For this former birthday party organizer and entertainer, this seemed like the perfect idea!  And it is.

Just Add Color was the brainchild of a creative dad who took his experience with the product back to where it’s the most fun. HOME!    And it’s excellent!

When you order your Just Add Color party pack, you get TONS of color dust.  It’s a LOT!  So you can do all kinds of different activities with it and still have more for another party. Seriously!  This is awesome, you guys!

The party pack comes with a fabulous idea book and if you need more ideas, Ryan is keeping a list and is happy to share the other fun ideas he and other customers have.  The possibilities are endless and that’s why having ALL THAT COLOR in your party pack is so tremendous. After your first party you’ll WANT to have another… and another!

Ok, so take a look at how it works:

Check out what you get in your party pack… I’m telling you it’s a TON!

5 lbs of Purple powder
5 lbs of Pink powder
5 lbs of Blue powder
A booklet/guide for ideas of how to use the powder for your party – so many great ideas!
3 bottle “paintbrushes” – awesome!
PLUS Free shipping if you get the pack.

If you get some old stockings or socks, you can put the powder in there and play tag or any number of games.  Add the powder to plain shaving cream (the cheap stuff is best) and use paintbrushes to paint garage doors, etc., or for an indoor party, use it as finger paint.

In the summertime combine it with a splash party and get clean up included!


The only negative … just because I want full disclosure … this IS dust.  It’s a lot of dust.  I worried a bit about my dad who has lung issues so he gets a dust mask for the activities that include throwing or squirting the dust at each other.  And … it’s messy.  While it’ll all wash off, some materials will likely hold the dust longer and need several washings. I would definitely not use this with a brand new coat, new jeans, new sneakers, etc., unless that’s something that’s included in the party (decorating your clothes).  While we didn’t get a chance to use them, I had planned on having cheap rain ponchos for the kids in case their parents freaked out about the powder all over their clothing.
Now that we did our multi-generational Thanksgiving with the kit, my 20-something kids and their friends are dreaming up all kinds of ways to have an at-home powder fun event.  Watch here for more to come!

Carcasonne – Great family game!

Amazon’s got some great board games on sale today. Get ready for a few of our favorites starting with this one:

Carcasonne is a fabulous family game that our family loves.  When we first got it we’d play several rounds in an evening but I think we burned ourselves out on it (or at least some of us!) Now we play every other night or once a week and have a wonderful time.  The game changes each time you play it and the strategy is exciting and fun, even for younger players.  Super family game! Highly recommended.

*Sponsored post* Ask kids of all ages what their favorite family activity is and many of them (most of them) will reply “family movie night!” When our daughters were young every Friday night was Pizza Movie Night and we all looked forward to it. We even looked forward to it when our girls went through a phase of watching White Christmas for about 8 weeks in a row. nike air max femme Phew! It was the “family” part of family movie night that made it special. air max thea pas cher And it was extra special when there was something at the theater that we’d all enjoy – the big screen, popcorn, and all of us together. nike air max thea I have so many fond memories. In fact, now that the girls are grown, we still love a good movie night together, both in front of our small screen with Amazon Prime or a DVD, or on the big screen at our local theater. Mochilas Kanken Mini When we find a movie that’s at the theater that we’re looking forward to seeing, the first thing we do is jump over to Fandango to get our tickets. Not only can we see all the options at multiple theaters in our area, but, even better, now that many of our local theaters have prereserved seats (love those recliners!) we can secure our favorite spot for the evening and not get stuck in the first or second row and neck pain for the rest of the night! Fandango is easy. air max soldes pas cher You can print your tickets at home and, with prereserved seats anyway, you can even skip the annoying previews and show up right when the actual movie starts. basket nike air max (Side note, I timed the previews the last time we went – it was almost 40 minutes! Ouch!) Here’s the other great benefit of Fandango: If, for some reason you can’t make it to the theater for the show you reserved, you can get a refund up until the minute the actual movie starts. nike cortez So if your kids get sick or you just change your mind, you can pop over to the site, cancel your tickets and either bank your credit for the next movie night or get a full refund (minus the processing fee). It’s that simple! And I just got an email that shows how Fandango and Paypal have started working together so that it’s easy for you to buy multiple tickets and have your friends pay you back!   Going to the movies isn’t the “cheap” night out it used to be when I was a kid, but thanks to Groupon Coupons, you can save a bit on your ticket prices with Fandango. So, have you started your own family movie night tradition? If not, why not give it a try!   FYI: This is a sponsored post.
