My #DadsWay Party – Make a mess and get clean with Tide and Downy

617ef2b0ddd811e29a9c22000a1fbe09_7You know dads really have a unique way of handling things. Tossing a party or an event is no different. This week I was given an opportunity by Tide & Downy to host a party.

It was held the craft studio in New York City… We had moms and dads with their children do two great craft projects along with random acts of dancing and even a game of limbo.

Of course the crafts were a little messy otherwise what’s the point of doing the laundry afterwards.

Check out this great recap video

This party was also a great excuse to bring together some dear friends in the parent blogger space in New York to send off Jessica from mommasgonecity who moved back to Cali after spending years in New York. Jessica was one of the few bloggers I got to know when I started blogging. Our children are pretty close in age and over these last three years we’ve watched them grow.

I really can’t thank Tide and Downy enough for this great event. All the guests got to enjoy pizza and the little masterpieces of art the kids took home plus some great new memories.

I highly recommend looking into the craft studio for any NYC based kids event as the space is large but better yet the staff was amazing with the children.

The Princess Dress #DadsWay

tide_downy_bottlesI know sooo many dads that dress up their little princess in the same dresses daily.  Between the tea parties and just running around playing soccer in their little princess dress…. its those moments that make daddy daughter time great!

What are those moments in your life? I want to hear about them – leave a comment here – go on twitter use hashtag #DadsWay

Everyone has a story that describes how his or her dad is truly unique. If you would like to help Tide and Downy celebrate dad’s way this month, go tell a story about your dad on Twitter using the hashtag #DadsWay. For every tweet sent out using #DadsWay, Tide and Downy will donate $1 to the National Fatherhood Initiative.

These days with a baby at home we’re using Tide Free & Gentle which is dye and perfume-free. It removes more residue from dirt, food, and stains than the leading free detergent so they say… I’m pretty happy with the level of clean we’re getting on all those spit up on baby clothes.
