Adding more play to your day doesn’t require a lot of effort or money. It does require forethought and a little organization.

We give you information & inspiration to help you plug in to daily celebrations that are going on nationally around the world, themes for a mini-celebration and a ton of ideas for impromptu play.

We’ve separated each part of a celebration into modules:

  • – Decorating Module
  • – Food Module
  • – Entertainment Module
  • – Costume Module

You can go big – or go small. How much you celebrate is up to you. How much time do you want to devote? How much money do you want to spend? How energetic do you feel? Plug one or more modules into you schedule today where you need them.

We give you themes for the day with a ton of ideas and you take it from there. Use one or ten of our suggestions, or use the theme as a springboard for your own creativity. Play more – as much as your schedule allows.

Play is more fun when it’s easy to do & easy on the budget.

We know that resources for playtime and parties can fluctuate.

  • – when families face limited funds, “fun money” is always the first to go
  • – there are times when our to-do list is longer than hours in the day
  • – we all have days when we’re ill or too exhausted to invest energy into our playtime or party project
  • -but then there are times we have milestone occasions or want to have the ultimate party or family celebration

We help you play more without over-extending your resources.

We show alternatives for:

  • – limited budgets
  • – limited time investment
  • – limited creativity/cooking skills
  • – limited energy
  • – making-dreams-come-true ultimate party & play days

We offer options so you can choose what’s right for you.

When my 3 kids were young, I planned hundreds of themed playtime, holiday and party days.

That Good Times Glue still brings us together to celebrate seasonal holidays even though we are spread out.

And when we get together we spend lots of time reminiscing & laughing about the crazy things we’ve done.

And when we get together we spend lots of time reminiscing & laughing about the crazy things we’ve done – and adding more play experiences.

The best part of all? My adult children spend time together – just them and their friends – for special events and trips.

They are applying Good Times Glue to new relationships and creating more happy memories that will last their lifetime.
