10 Top Kids Party Games for an Enjoyable Party

10 Top Kids Party Games for an Enjoyable Party

Are you someone whom finds planning children’s parties a daunting affair? Are you worried about what you are going to do to keep them entertained?

If this sounds like you, then don’t despair as you have certainly not been the first parents to experience this. The good news is, that it doesn’t have to be this way, and there are plenty of EASY and CHEAP ways to keep the kids entertained at your child’s party.

There is a lot to be said about all the traditional kids party games that have been around since our Grandparents generation… and probably longer. These games have withstood the test of time for a reason… because they are good… and they really do work!

Here are 10 kids party games that you can use at your next child’s birthday party. You could pick one or two, or use the entire 10, but one thing is for certain… and that is the children will love them!

Pass the Parcel: All children love opening presents, so what is not to love about this game! Simply find a small present (suitable for both a boy and a girl) and wrap it up. Then have several layers of wrapping around the main present. Inside each wrapping it is ideal to place either another small item (a piece of candy, balloon, pen, spinning top… anything small). This is the small gift for the child to keep that opens that layer.

Sit the children in a circle and play some music. Ask them to pass the parcel around the circle until the music stops. When the music stops, that child can open the layer! For younger children it is recommended that you ensure each child has a chance to open at least one layer.

Pin the tail on the donkey: The traditional way to play this game is to have a donkey and lots of tails that the kids will pin onto the donkey (hence the name). You can however use this game to suit any theme you are having. For instance, Pin Dora’s hair band into her hair or pin the banana into the monkey’s hand. You can buy ready-made kits, or if feeling creative you could draw something yourself. Simply have some blind folds available and each child in turn has the opportunity to pin the tail on the donkey. Blindfold the child and ask them to pin the tail as close to where it should be as possible.

Musical Statues: Are there some budding dancers in the room? Choose some favourite music and simply ask the kids to dance! When they least expect it, turn the music off, and the children have to stand as still as possible. The last to stand still is out! Continue the game until only one child remains a statue.

Musical bumps: This game is played very similar to musical statues, except when the music stops, the children have to immediately sit down on their bottom. The last child to sit down …

What It Means To Be An Empath

What It Means To Be An Empath

Let’s talk about what it means to be an empath…

Being an empath is when you are affected by other people’s energies, and you have an innate ability to intuitively feel and perceive others. Your life is unconsciously influenced by others’ desires, wishes, thoughts, moods, and even pain. Being an empath is much more than being highly sensitive and it’s not just limited to emotions or physical pain. Empaths can also perceive the motivations and intentions of people around them. Being an empath, you are always open, so to speak, to process other people’s feelings and energy. This means that you really feel, and in many cases, take on the emotions of others, sometimes unknowingly.

Many empaths experience things like chronic fatigue, environmental sensitivities, or unexplained aches and pains daily. These are all things that are more likely to be contributed to outside influences and not so much yourself at all. Essentially, you walk around this world with all of the accumulated karma, emotions, and energy from others. Here are the listeners of life. Empathic people are often problem solvers, thinkers, and studiers of many things.

I personally have ‘felt’ things for a very long time in my younger years and I had no idea I was an empath. I just knew sometimes that I was sad, unsettled, had unusual pains, or was even angry with no apparent reason to be. It wasn’t until I was in my late 30’s that I learned what it was to be an empath, and why I always felt so different. And it took me quite a bit to truly realize this gift. Today, I’m calling it a gift. In my earlier years, I didn’t always think of this as a gift because I didn’t know how to contain it, control it, or even protect myself. Look for my next article on “Tools for an Empath’s Protection”.

Now I’m usually (and I use the word ‘usually’ loosely, LOL) aware of things I’m feeling that aren’t specifically mine, whether emotions things or physical symptoms. Sometimes, however, it takes me some time to figure it out and realize what’s happening. An example of this is something that happened to me the other night at a yoga class.

The minute I walked into the yoga room, I got a tickle in my throat that I couldn’t quite clear. It was just the instructor and me in the room so I just drank my water and didn’t think anything more about it. My throat became very scratchy and I had some coughing for a few minutes. The more I thought about it, I realized that I was perfectly fine before going to class, so I was beginning to think that this issue with my throat was not my own. In chatting with the instructor before class, she mentioned having a sinus thing going on, and suddenly during the class and my coughing fit, it clicked, that I was probably feeling her, and not me at all.

Beauty Salon Business Forms

Beauty Salon Business Forms

Every beauty salon has its own business forms for neat functioning. Beauty salon business forms can be computer forms or manual forms, which are used in sales or services.

Common manual forms include invoices, receipts, estimates, statements, human resource materials, credit memos, packing lists, shipping and export forms, timecards, and warehouse/receiving forms. Computer forms may be invoices, statements, proposals, bills, purchase orders, and estimates. Automotive, transmittal, appraisal, work orders, service/repair orders, and service books/register forms are the normal manual service forms. And the manual sales forms are for proposals, contracts, memos, sales books, collections, sales orders, register forms, and sales slips.

The invoices can be in different styles and varieties and can change according to the owner’s choice. However, certain standards must be followed by each beauty salon holder in preparing an invoice. Since a beauty salon is also a place where a person can hire or purchase any beauty product, there are separate purchase order forms. After the purchase, the bills for lading are also given to the customer. The estimate form provides the pricelist of each product in the shop, which helps a customer to choose the appropriate products according to his budget.

A sales book is an important business form in all beauty salons. The sales book contains all information regarding the sale of a particular product, including the product number, quantity, unit price, total price, date of purchase, and more. A sales book can be used as an invoice and receipt so that the sales person can take theses items wherever they are going to sell their products.

Appraisal forms for the service persons, work orders for the business, and details about the service/repair orders all constitute business forms. Business forms also include gift certificates and tax forms. Other types of forms are legal forms and business documents. Professional-looking business forms such as brochures give a detailed idea about the company and its merits.…

Gold Chains For Guys – The Perfect Gift For Your Boyfriend?

Gold Chains For Guys – The Perfect Gift For Your Boyfriend?

A lot of girls are hesitant about buying gold chains for guys. But if you ask me, I think it’s one of the best gifts that you can give to your boyfriend. More and more guys are wearing different pieces of jewelry everyday and gold necklaces may be right up your boyfriend’s alley. The best part is that they are widely available in many different places and they’re not too expensive if you know where to look. So have you ever thought about getting a gold chain for your man?

First of all, you need to consider whether he would like it as a gift or not. Take a look at his wardrobe and how he accessorizes it. Gold chains are most often worn by men who value fashion. Take a look at how he dresses. Does he wear rings? Does he wear other types of jewelry? Does he pay a lot of attention to the way he dresses? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then a gold chain might be a good fit.

Even if your boyfriend does not value fashion but likes classy items, he might enjoy wearing a necklace. Some guys feel a bit of trepidation about wearing a chain around their neck, but once they realize that it is okay with their girlfriend to do so, they might realize that it is a growing fashion trend. Even though men have been wearing necklaces for years and years, only within the last few years has it really become a trend. Perhaps it is time to bring your boyfriend out of his “fashion shell” and introduce him to something new. Who knows? After a while it may latch on and he could start wearing nicer clothes and caring more about his looks.

Think about how much you would like to spend on your gold chain before you go out to make a purchase. Even though you could easily spend thousands of dollars on high quality gold jewelry, gold chains for guys can cost as little as $30 to $50 if you shop in the right places. What are the right places? Most people would say you should shop online. The internet is your source for an unlimited number of great deals.

So, whether your man is already into good fashion or you are looking to introduce him to it, gold chains make excellent gifts for men. Think about purchasing one for that special guy in your life during the next holiday or special event. Do some searching around the web and you will certainly be able to …

My Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass Weight Gain Review

My Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass Weight Gain Review

About a month ago I went on yet another journey to increase my lean muscle and mass. I’m the kind of guy who likes to ask a lot of people questions for reviews and do my own research before I buy something so I know that I’m getting a quality product. I live on campus at school and have an all you can eat cafeteria available to me 3 times a day with pretty high calorie foods around me; some good, some bad. I knew if I really wanted to put on some weight though that just those 3 large meals a day and my 2 snacks wouldn’t do the trick. I have a high metabolism and burn close to 3,000 calories a day.

I went online to a few forums and asked some questions as well as did my own research on which weight gainer would be the best bang for my buck and had a quality ingredient list. Everywhere I went kept pointing me back to Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass. Bodybuilding.com gives it a rating of 8.5/10 and right when you order a 6lb tub that has 8 servings in it from their website there are offering a 2month supply or 60 servings of Optimum Nutrition micronized creatine powder as a free gift (which I currently use in my post workout formula). With tax and all it cost me about 25 bucks. If you want to check it out for yourself you can do so by going to bodybuilding.com. They also have a 3lb and 12lb option for 16 and 40 dollars.

1 serving is 2 scoops which equals 1250 calories, 50g of protein, 253g of carbs and 25 vitamins and minerals. If you want to add more additional calories to your shake they recommend putting it one of the following (granola, chocolate chips, peanut butter, almonds, peanuts, ice cream, whole milk, coconut, flaxseed oil, oat bran, banana, honey, and molasses). Not all at the same time of course, but you can find something that taste right for you. Personally I do one scoop of serious mass vanilla, 16oz of 2% milk, a banana and 1 tbsp of peanut butter and it tastes magnificent. You can check out the ingredient list on the same link I gave you above farther down the page on the right.

So now it’s time for the verdict from a fairly small guy. I started off weighing 150lbs and I’m 5’7. In just 25 days of eating a high calorie diet, doing Steve Edwards P90X mass gaining routine and supplementing it with 1 to 2 weight gain shakes a night; one after my workout and one right before bed I have put on 8lbs of mass and now weigh 158lbs. 25 days ago my body fat was 4.7% and now it’s 5.1%. Had a professional check all this and according to his calculations, which I trust, I have gained 7lbs of muscle and 1 pound of fat. That’s a pretty good trade off …
