Define your activity areas. What are your childs interests and how could you categorize his/her current toys? Are there new activities that you want to introduce to your child? I came up with these areas: dress up , action figure/race cars, reading area, arts and crafts. There are so many more like musical instruments, trains, pretend kitchen area… the list goes on.
Walk the Plank – Blindfold your guests and have them walk across a long 2 x 4 plank. The later in the evening you play this the funnier it should be, especially after a little Planters Punch. Give out prizes for the players who can walk the plank without falling off.
(2) We have a need for power, control and competition. No one wants to feel powerless, or that they have little or no control over their life. Also we feel a need to compete in order to see how we are measuring up to others. Sports, games, and gatherings of all kinds are a popular way to fill this need.
What’s Man acting as Man? Look around you. Do you think the man who senselessly bombed Iraq really thought “God was his General”? Or did he just ignore God’s urge Not to kill thousands for his own greed? That’s something that really could have changed the world, but man can run his fingers through riches – it’s much harder to give oneself to God.

Forget about God’s judgment – would you hurt a person on earth who you had to face directly and explain yourself? Imagine killing thousands in a single second – all brothers and sisters.
Some things that look great on the memory keepsake board are keys, tickets, postcards, photos, beads, buttons, ribbon, stickers, cutouts, scraps of cloth, Harry Potter shirts jewelry or newspaper clippings and other significant pieces of paper. Anything that will lay almost flat, and will attach easily to the display board, is fair game.
Now, that you’ve found your dress or tux, it’s time to add some flair to your outfit. Some choose to add simple jewelry or cuff links to accessorize their outfits, but it’s Mardi Gras, so why not have some fun with your accessories? Of course, one of the most famous Mardi Gras accessories are beads. Since beads are available in all colors and styles, you can match your beads to the theme of the ball you are attending.
My intellect tells me that God must be genderless, since God is All, including all aspects and emotions of either gender; God is a stern Warrior, and a Nurturing Mother. Our Western God can show his manhood, but never her breasts. And our Western Patriarchal minds make it almost heretical to address God as anything other than Father.
