5 Truly DIY Birthday Parties for Kids

For a party to be "truly" DIY, two things need to happen:   
  1. The party can not cost a fortune.    
  2. The elements of the party need to be doable by a "real" mom.  
Here are five fun parties I have put together for my my boys. (Click on the links for the details.)

Fun, right?  And I promise... I have never taken a cake decorating class, I don't use a party planner, and I never have a big party budget.  All these parties are truly DIY.  I hope you have found an idea or two that you can incorporate into a party for your special little birthday boy or girl.
