Mykidstime 10th birthday

It’s 10 years since Mykidstime was started, which I’m sure you’ll agree is a milestone to be marked. We decided to host a little party to celebrate Mykidstime’s 10th birthday and invited lots of parents and kids to join us. Take a look at our party pics…and yes, the cake was as good as it looked!

You can also download the Mykidstime App available for iOS and Android, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.

Mykidstime founders Jill Holtz and Michelle Davitt, along with Mykidstime editor Emily Manning, hosted the party to celebrate Mykidstime’s 10th birthday on Sunday 4th February in the beautiful setting of the Palatine Room at National Museum of Ireland (Decorative Arts and History) at Collins Barracks in Dublin.

No birthday party would be complete without a birthday cake, and ours was a showstopper! Created by the very talented and award-winning Corinna Maguire of Lovin’ from the Oven, our delicious chocolate cake was a true work of art.

Our guests and their children enjoyed activities during the party including:

  • A LEGO workshop, including Robotics, with the LearnIT Education team
  • Costumes to dress up in, provided by the NMI Collins Barracks Education Team
  • A photo booth station with funny props and hats
  • Colouring and crafts corner
  • Giant Snakes & Ladders

About Mykidstime

Founded in 2007 as a local listings website in Galway, Mykidstime.com has evolved into a nationally trusted online brand for parents.

Over 10 years of business, Mykidstime has a proven track record of delivering quality awareness campaigns to parents, while achieving exceptional results. We have partnered with well-known attractions such as National Museum of Ireland, Baboro International Arts Festival for Children and Westport House, as well as established retailers and public sector organisations including Bord Bia, Marks and Spencer, Easons and many others.

An important element of Mykidstime has always been to champion local businesses and start-ups designed to make parents’ life easier. Mykidstime also designates an annual Charity of the Year, voted for by tens of thousands of parents around the country during the month of January. The 2017 Mykidstime Charity of the Year was Irish Children’s Arthritis Network (ICAN), while for 2018 we have chosen two charities due to only five votes separating them when voting closed on January 31st. The 2018 Mykidstime Charities of the Year are Galway Autism Partnership and Down Syndrome Centre Cork. These charities will benefit from support and advertising throughout the year on Mykidstime.com and in our online magazine for parents, My Time.
