Our friend Emma did this for her daughter’s birthday, and we think it’s super clever.

Last winter we went to Nico’s 2nd birthday party, and loved the rocket theme. It’s an easy DIY decor/activity indoor birthday party for the toddler set. We asked his dad Gregg to give us the scoop: “You know what’s funny? He wasn’t really that into rockets necessarily. But he liked them and we figured it […]
