I put out a Facebook plea for empty boxes and within minutes had what I needed. (Thanks, friends, by the way!) I wrapped all the boxes in brown Kraft paper so they looked like the game. Yes, it was time consuming, but it’s those little touches that I love. The boys built their game and then used water balloon slingshots to launch the birds. Three of the birds I filled with beans so they would be heavier. It was so fun watching the kids build their structure and launch their birds!
For the kids not playing the game, I printed out some coloring sheets from Squidoo (thanks, Amy, for the link!). There’s a whole slew of Angry Birds stuff on that site including the angry birds font which I used for the invitations. The Angry Birds Knock on Wood Game was also available for entertainment.
It was a nice, breezy day. Nice in the sense that it kept things cool but not nice in the sense that we were constantly chasing plates and napkins, and Joshua had to blow out unlit candles. I really don’t think he minded one bit.
With the epic Angry Birds party behind me, I have visions of some re-purposing projects that I had to put on the back burner. First, I’m giving my sewing muscles a little rest. 🙂
What’s your favorite birthday party you’ve ever hosted?
