I am thrilled to have joined Cookie Magazine's "Word-of-Mom" Blogger Panel. My new connection is going to help me share some terrific stories with the Momtrends community. Here's a cool one: Cookie and the PTA are teaming up on a back-to-school event.
The idea is to create a new holiday called School Year's Eve. It's a chance for families and kids to start the back-to-school season right, with a kick-off party on August 30th before the school bell rings.
To join in the fun, go to SchoolYearsEve.com. You'll find downloadable party decorations, invitations, party games, recipes (love the vegie sliders) and more. Need a little incentive? Anyone who throws a School Year's Eve party - big or small - will get an opportunity to win $1500 to go towards thier school or local PTA unit, simply by uploading photos from the festivities at this link. My girls are a little young, but we plan a little cupcake pj party before preschool starts up!
