George turns 8!
The date was set and invitations were sent out for George's 8th birthday.
On the day of the party, we had a great turnout and the house was decorated and ready to unleash the Pokemon trainees.
"Team Tunnel Challenge" was next. This was a lot of fun. The kids were again divided into two teams and they had to throw a balloon through their legs and get it to the end of the line, the last person then ran to the front of the line and carried on until the original leader was back at the beginning of the line.
"Aeroblast Challenge" consisted of throwing pre-made planes through the set of striped cups. We did this in two teams and was another test of accuracy and skill.
The "Jigglypuff Danceoff" was a classic! Again I chose some Pokemon themed music and told the kids to show me their best Jigglypuff moves. I paused the music and got them to do their best Jigglypuff pose which was great.
The last challenge before the Award Ceremony was the "Whismur Circle Challenge". Basically Chinese Whispers, in a circle I whispered something into the first child's ear then it went around the circle and the last child had to tell us what had been said. Quite a laugh indeed. We did this a couple of times and the final statement was "Congratulations you are now all Pokemon Trainers" which was a great lead into the Award Ceremony.
Each child was awarded a certificate, a Pokeball with a Pokemon inside and a Pokemon bracelet. These went down very well indeed. All in all a super successful Pokemon Party, big thanks to The Party Box Company for organising.
Charlie's Unicorn Party- Charlie turns 5!
We were delighted to recently put together this Unicorn Party Box for Charlie's 5th birthday party.
The stage was set for 8 gorgeous friends of Charlie's to attend her Unicorn Party.
First things first, the decorations were put up and the table set ready for the party to begin.
The guests arrived and each were dressed in their unicorn attired. A horn, a tail, and don't forget their unicorn name!
Then it was time to get the party started.
First game, 'Prancing Unicorns'.
We put on our best unicorn music and let the dancing commence. We started with Gioachino Rossini's William tell Overture and had the unicorns line up and follow a leader like a race. To calm the unicorns down we put on a slightly slower paced piece, See the Ponies Galloping by Music Shakers. Next we had to have some dancing unicorns so we played Mister Ed Theme tune by Mike Stewart & The Stablehands. Everyone loved this one. And to finish off, we needed some crazy dancing so we played Crazy Horses by The Osmonds.
All in all a very successful start to the party.
Second game, 'Pin the horn on the Unicorn'.
Third game, 'A Unicorn Treasure Hunt'.
We hid these gorgeous gift boxes with toy unicorns inside and our unicorns had to find one each. Of course they were thrilled getting to take these home at the end of the party.
Our unicorns were parched and needed feeding so it was time for the food.
We had fairy unicorn popcorn with melted marshmallows and sprinkles, fairy bread rounds, a rainbow fruit platter and a gorgeous Unicorn cake from Sweet Bakery in Marsden Village, Wellington. What an added surprise to find the rainbow sponge filling inside - our unicorns were over the moon.
After a fun filled unicorn adventure it was time for all the tired little unicorns to head back to their homes. Charlie the birthday girl couldn't have been happier and her parents were ready to celebrate with a glass of bubbles after another annual birthday ticked off the list.
Thanks The Party Box Company - awesome Unicorn party box!
