Spiderman Party

My son wanted an "at home" party with his friends this year. Afterwards with aching feet and a big clean-up ahead of me, I was reminded of just how much more work they are.

Thankfully it was worth it!

Worth it for the memories we made, the enjoyment shared and the expressions of fun on all the children's faces.

So here's the low down on planning a Spiderman theme, enjoy!

My first recommendation would be to check what you can find online. This is an example of free downloadable printable Spiderman themed party kit found at Oh My Fiesta.  There's also a lot of Spiderman images to use for decorating or invitations etc.  They're found here.

The kids all made a "Spider Sucker"

I hope you have just as much fun at your Spiderman party as my son did!!

Star Wars Party (and anti-gravity cake)

A few months ago, my eldest wanted his birthday celebration at the local iceskating rink. "Perfect" I thought.  With just a small gathering of his closest friends, this party was intimate, relaxed and most of all... EASY!!

I took along some supplies to "theme" up the eating area, but really this was probably one of the most hassle free and easy-going parties I have ever organised!

The highlight and centre-piece of the party was the anti-gravity cake that my husband and I made together.  We'd seen the pictures on the Internet and we were a bit worried about how it would look, but when it was finished, we were SO excited! Check it out.

I created the invite using the Star Wars Crawl Creator.  It's super cool! The link for the masks is here.

If you want to go "all out" with a Star Wars theme, there's are lots of available free resources online! Have fun!

Friends Lego Party

This party was super easy and fun.  I could've gone "all out" with this theme but, since I have assured my husband that I'll tone down the party planning from now on, I did manage to keep it pretty simple.

My daughter's birthday is right before Christmas which means it's a busy time of year for everyone. This was a simple, 2 hour, after-school party.  The night consisted of food, playing with Lego, colouring in, opening presents, singing Happy Birthday/ cutting the cake and watching a 30 minute Friends Lego movie. EASY!

Curious George Party

What's not to like about Curious George?  That was why I was super excited when my son was keen to have a Curious George party for his 5th birthday.  
With bright and colorful decorations, yummy food (including lots of bananas) and some fun games as well as craft- this party was a huge success!
