Remember the Potty Training Tips I shared after visiting the Pull-Ups Academy last month? After gaining insights on new potty training tips, methods, and behind the scenes action at the Kimberly Clark headquarters I was excited to share those tips at our toddler playdate. My little guy, who is just wrapping up potty training, and I recently had the opportunity to host a playdate featuring Pull-Ups. We initially invited a friend and her daughters, but unfortunately one of the girls came down with the flu. Yikes, is it that time already? We were saddened they couldn’t make but we delivered a pack of Pulls ups and a “handwritten note” from the little guy wishing them better. Our guest of honor for our playdate was my niece who is also in the midst of her potty training journey. I wanted to create a small table for them with a Pirate Party theme. The kids loved the little set up with pirate food and toys.
For the food we made squid hot dogs, canon ball olives, and goldfish crackers.
My favorite were the jello and orange slice boats for dessert.
I used mini wood treasure chests to hold a compass and gold coins as party favors.
The kids loved walking around the backyard looking for treasure with their maps.
I “hid” quite in the open, the Jake treasure chest filled with stickers and dollar toys for the kids to play with.
One of the things I like about Pull-Ups is their use of Disney characters. My little guy is obsessed with Jake and the Neverland Pirates. When Pull-Ups sent us a box full of party favors and a Jake treasure chest he was thrilled! He has used this toy chest every single day. It was filled with everything you need to start potty training and can be used to store toys. The sides have handles so his little arms can carry it around the house collecting treasure.
What are some of your best potty training tips? I’d like to hear what worked best for your child!
