Star Wars Themed Party

For this party the entertainment was provided at a dry ski slope in the form of a 1 hour donut session.

We provided a Star Wars themed goody bag with a Star Wars blind bag and cupcake and also a pool noodle light sabre (https://youtu.be/rn9DIJoMJyY) for the kids to battle with after the donutting.

We got the Star Wars themed stickers from an eBay seller and bags also from eBay.
Below are 2 different Star Wars cakes we have created for different parties.

Doc McStuffins/animal hospital pre-school Birthday party

This party was a simple one. We hired a small soft play Toddler group hall so there was play equipment to entertain them all. We asked them all to bring a teddy for animal hospital and so each child could have their stuffed animal checked out with the vet set and bandages/plasters applied to their toys. Each child went home with a goody bag complete with Doc McStuffins colouring-in book and a homemade little book of boo-boos. This party could be adapted to a home party with party games or using a village/church hall.

Gruffalo Party 

When Daisy turned 6 we celebrated her Birthday on Christmas Eve at home with some of our neighbours and friends from her class. Daisy was very much into the Gruffalo and asked for a gruffalo costume and other merchandise. So we threw a gruffalo themed party with a few handmade items thrown in. We made use of our new glue gun and made gruffalo themed sock puppets for party bags, a gruffalo chocolate cake and linked the party food to the story for example – popcorn -scrambled snake 🐍

For party activities they had gruffalo play dough  (basic homemade play dough with added cocoa powder) we put out craft items such as matchsticks, feathers, Pom poms, google eyes etc to make gruffalo themed masterpieces. I will pop on the blog my favourite play dough recipe under our preschool indoor activities.

We also had gruffalo shaped biscuits to decorate (basic biscuit recipe with gruffalo cookie cutter) Lastly Dougie decorated a large cardboard box as a log-pile house and put holes in the box and filled it with feathers, sticks, toy snakes and also sweets so it was a secret surprise box! (Different take on a piñata!) This was very popular! Lastly we played musical statutes and pass the parcel.
