Let's Party!



The last party we held was to celebrate 3Po and CleanBoy's 4th birthday. The game the kids are playing is pabitin, a popular Filipino party game. Basically, toys and candies are tied to a wooden frame, which is suspended from up high (note: our pabitin is a bit sparse; it really ought to look like this...).

The frame is raised and lowered so that kids have to JUMP to get their prizes. Usually the grownup holding the rope pulls it up and down, juuust out of their range, just to tease the kids a little bit -- until one of the kids manages to get a hold of the frame, then everyone DRAGS the whole thing down and the frenzy ensues. I think it's a great idea for any kids' party, Filipino or not.

This week's Photo Hunters theme is party. For more parties, click here.

I am so going to do this for one of my kids parties. How cool is that? I love the photo!!

My little bro's fiance is Filipino so I am SO hoping that my children get introduced to the awesome traditions that are shared in this culture. So awesome.

Wow, your blog has exploded! Anyway, I remember being traumatized playing this when I was little because some bigger boys would absolutely shove me away trying to get to the treats. Hehehe..
