I recently got lost in the world of Pinterest looking for ideas from bloggers on a theme for C’s upcoming birthday. Okay, really it’s not until August, but I wanted to start getting ideas. I found a lot of really cool themes and ideas, but the circus theme seemed to stick with me. I loved all the different options for games, food, and cute decorations. The real reason the circus theme stuck with me was the physical therapist in me loved how so many games involved motor play. I already do circus yoga, but I’ve been inspired to incorporate more circus themed activities into motor play and possibly a birthday theme.
