You are all going to LOVE this next party. SOOO clever and just plain CUTE. This POTTY TRAINING PARTY was submitted by Mindy Starr of Creative Juice. And that it is- creative! Oh my goodness- I just adore it. Do you have a toddler that you’re trying to potty train? Throw a potty training party to get them on board!

The invite that says, “peace out pampers”, the underwear cookies and cupcakes, the “I gotta go” juice cups, the toilet paper wreath, the “potty like a rock star” tags, the “pampers toss” game- it’s all absolutely darling & so perfectly thought out!

Potty Party Details from Mindy

“In my quest to potty train my daughter I came across a philosophy to “potty train in a day”. Part of the advice was to “throw them a potty party”…well when I see party I sort of tend to go over the top. So that’s what I did. I invited all of her friends over who were “in training” & their personal trainers- the moms – for a Potty party! I looked everywhere for potty charts & things to make it a CUTE special occasion for them. But alas, I found none. So I designed printables to go with this party.

Invitation:
“Its Official. I’m a big kid. Peace out Pampers! Put on your big kid pants and come potty like a rock star”

Theme: gray chevron, pink, blue, & underwear!!!!

Food & refreshment:
Cake and Underwear cookies
Cupcakes
Yogurt Parfait with coconut
Yogurt dipped pretzels with pink and blue icing drizzle
Popcorn cones
Pink lemonade & Blue Koolaid in “I gotta go” juice cups! {you are supposed to get them to drink a lot so they will have to go all day!}
Moms drank “ personal trainer” water bottles

Decorations:
“I’m a big kid” picture frames
Printable Potty Party Set
Toilet Paper Wreath {DIY on the blog soon}
Totsie rolls in toilet mug
Party hats
Spray painted $5 dessert stand

Activities:
Diaper Toss – Peace out papmers! – Kids threw their diapers in the trash never to be used again!
Potty pedi – Girls got a pedicure from your mommy while waiting on the potty!

Favors:
Each Kid got two favor bags – a #1 and a #2…. With corresponding treats to their respective actions… Yellow jelly beans and tootsie rolls!
They also each received a potty chart & a sticker sheet

Oh, and a lot of people have asked – YES it worked!”

    i am so glad that you all like this idea {well…most of you lol} it was SOOOO fun to plan! my daughter and her friends STILL talk about it! It was a fun bonding experience for all of us – even the moms!
    i admit that since i am a party planner i probably went a little overboard with the details – but i laughed my way through it and had SO much fun!
    the diaper toss was a BIG hit – even if you don't have a full party i wanted to show lots of ideas and help others who may be potty training in the future!
    i wanted to take something that most moms dread and make it fun for everyone!

    I just love this party! Clever and very well executed. My own children are grown but as a young mom with little ones- my kids would have loved this! Good job. I am a follower of creative juice and she does great work. I am now a new fan of Kara's Party ideas too!

    I love this idea, very much encouraging and playful approach to a big mile stone. I think letting your child know that all his friends go through that makes a whole big difference. My kids never had an issues with potty training, but I know plenty of kids that don't want to hear about it, or don't know how to approach that task. Attaching positive emotions to this mile stone is absolutely encouraging and helpful, and also helps parents to think about it in more relaxed way.
    Well done,and as usual amazing decor :).

    What a cute idea! My boy/girl twins just finished their second week diaper-free and this would be a great way to celebrate!

    What a cute, brilliant idea! I don't have my own children yet, but I can totally see this happening with some of my students that I teach (kindergartners and preschoolers). I only wish I HAD my own children so I can do such cute things with them!

    What an absolute ridiculous waste of money. There are children starving on the other side of the world and we throw elegant potty parties? It's shameful. Really.
