Spring Sports for Kids
Sports began for our kids around age six. That’s a bit late by some standards. There is so much that kids learn from participating in sports: determination, practice, teamwork, focus, motor skills, handling disappointment, dealing with conflict, decision making, following directions, self-confidence, and more. Besides, sports for kids can be just plain fun.
If you’ve not already signed your child up for spring soccer, little league or some other kids sports activity, then here is a list of options for you.

Kids Birthday Cake Ideas
You can have a cake decorated and/or shaped to go with your theme or a traditional cake just using the theme colors. You can have cake and ice cream or an ice cream cake. This is an area where your creativity can really come out. Bakeries that do custom cakes can make a cake in just about any shape you can imagine. Of course, there’s a price for that.
How Many People Will A Cake Feed?
It varies. In general, figure that the standard US sizes are a full sheet cake = 18 x 24 x 2 inches and a quarter sheet cake = 9 x 12 x 2 inches. These sizes can vary by an inch or so in any dimension from one bakery to the next. This means that for a 2″ x 3″ serving you can get approximately 18 servings from a quarter sheet; 36 servings from a half sheet; and 64 servings from a full sheet cake.
