What's a great present under $30 for dads? Please recommend an item from your store or someone else's?

Chrissy Boerman

I think a personalized golf maker is a great dad gift! It can just be a phrase, a bible verse, note from each kid... something to make that dad smile each time he uses it!

Can you suggest a fun birthday party game or creative activity for 6-8 year-olds?

Chrissy Boerman

Yarn Spider Web Game (Elementary School Children): Roll up a small ball of black yarn, one for each child, the size of a golf ball. Have the children stand in a circle holding their ball. A parent or helper can then tie the yarn around each child's waist and give that child the rest of the ball to hold. Each child, taking turns around the circle, tosses the ball of yarn to someone across from him. That child then wraps the yarn once around him and tosses it to another child and so on and so on. When they are done tossing and wrapping they must now get themselves out of the spider web they have made. Lots of fun.

What are your tips for planning an affordable birthday party?

Chrissy Boerman

For me planning an affordable birthday party means not buying store decorations. By that I mean no theme parties where everything matches. Try decorating with lots of balloons.. taped to the ceiling... no helium needed. try using colored pencils, crayons, paints, and markers as color... How about printing off theme decorations and coloring them? Kids don't really need goodie bags but if u insist just put pencils, bouncy balls, or candy in it.. things you can buy in bulk at a novelty store for super cheap. or make a snack and wrap it up.
