I love thinking of activities for play dates and even building them around a theme, if we have the time to plan that out. A little goes a long way and the extra preparation makes the time fun and special. Some years ago, we had a play date on St. Patrick’s Day with my cousin and her children. They came bearing St. Patrick’s Day decor and Irish potato candy (recipe courtesy of Baked Bree). The “potatoes” were delicious and were wrinkled and dimpled just like real potatoes! Part of the afternoon was filled with a simple craft―punched hearts in different shades and patterns of green along with little bits of ribbon that the kids glued together as shamrocks. A little lunch, dessert, play time and craft time–all in all, a splendid time!
