Planning a birthday party for kids who can't read yet?  Here is a great way to keep things straight!  Pick as many different colors of yarns as you'll have kids attending (we used 5 different colors of BIG yarn.)    Use the yarn to decorate and customize everything that the kids will be using -- goodie bags, hats, balloons -- the works!  As the guests arrive, tie 'their' color yarn around their wrist and tell them that anything with that color is theirs.   No one will mistake their party bag again!
