Easy Way To Encourage Your Kid’s Creative Spark

Sometimes the most valuable thing you can do for your little ones is not to send them to a top school, or get them a private tutor but to encourage their creativity.

Don’t Forget These Essentials When You Welcome Your Newborn

It’s been a long nine months, but now your little one is finally here. After just a few days, you’re ready to bring your beautiful newborn home and show them their new little world. It won’t be long before all your friends and extended family want to welcome your bundle of joy too. Preparing for an event like this might exhaust you just to think about it. After all, you’re not getting much sleep right now! Whether it’s big or small, make sure you remember these welcome party essentials:

What’s In A Name?

It’s important you write the given name of your newborn down on the invitations. This obvious detail can easily be forgotten when you’re writing out venue addresses and directions. If the welcome party is also a formal naming ceremony or Christening, then be certain to make that clear on the invite. It gives guests an idea of appropriate attire for the event. If you are welcoming your little one into your faith at the same time, then this may also influence the choice of gifts that guests bring.
