Kara's Party Ideas Potty Training Party! | Kara's Party Ideas

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.

“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
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

“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

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!

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!”

    Wow, yeah I agree, this seems WAAAY over the top, especially when you look at it from the perspective someone else pointed out: there are just so many people who struggle to feed their families, not only across the globe, but right here in our own country. I don't care for over-the-top shindigs for any reason, but especially not for potty training!
    Also, what if the kid is painfully shy and the mom is making them do something that could be mortifying? Hopefully they'd not force their kid to do something if they know that about them though.
    Not trying to pick a fight or anything like that, just wanted to add my POV.

    So… why are y'all wasting all kinds of time here criticizing this idea? Don't you have anything more constructive to do with your time than to sit here online bashing this lovely party a mom has thoughtfully given to her child. You are entitled to your own opinion and I wouldn't say that a mom who finds this idea silly or odd loves her kid any less than a mom who takes this idea and goes all out with it, but really get over yourself here. You've made your point. We've all heard you. Enough already. If you are truly concerned about starving children elsewhere in the`world, than perhaps you ought to consider *doing* something within your means to help them rather than sit here complaining about how someone uses the resources and talents they have to do somethg special for thier child.

      Nope! I think commenting on how creepy this is is a perfectly good use of my time, to be honest. *shudder*

    Oh, and any teenager who is scarred for life over a party mom threw for him/her at age 2 has bigger issues than the fact that mom threw this party in the first place. You're really reaching here "anonymous." Get over it already, and go devote that much energy to something worthwhile, please!

    I think this is a really cute idea and a great way to reward your “Big boy” or “Big Girl” once they’ve done a great job!

    Whatever happened to calling Daddy or Mommy at work or a Grandparent to share the good news and being rewarded with big kid undies? If parents throw a party for this bodily function just imagine the ones they can design for later bodily functions! Pimple cream cupcakes anyone? Parents, please relax over the potty process and don’t pressure your little ones to do something they may not be psychologically or physiologically ready for. They will let you know when they are ready.

    I have heard it all now. The day I give my child a potty training party! Let alone go to one. This is by far the stupidest, creepiest idea I have ever seen! Come on people, if you have the money to so something like this, throw a birthday party for a child whose family cannot afford it or sponsor a child that needs food to eat, a blanket and a pair of shoes.
    Just seems we praise our kids for everything and expect others to do the same. It seems we need to stop trying to out do each other and get back to the basics.
    You want to encourage your kid to pee – you want to award them…go back to the potty chart in the bathroom with a smiley face or a sad face and a small prize for #2.
    Stop the craziness!
