Teletubbies -2yr- Wooden Teletubbie Characters
Daisy in Wemmel, Belgium, Europe
For my sons second birthday, we chose the Teletubbies. Since we live in Belgium and the supplies were nowhere to be found, I searched the Internet for plates, napkins, cups etc with the Tubbies. With success! I found invitations and added some text I made on my computer. I completed the invitations with a red Teletubbie with my son’s face and attached it to the card with a cord.
Since the weather was very unpredictable the week before my son’s birthday, we decided to have the party indoors. I decorated the hall of our house with balloons (in the Teletubbies colours) and posters of the four. The living room was decorated with a green carpet, and also decorated with balloons and banner with Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa Laa and Poo. I made wooden figures of the four Tubbies and the Noo Noo and they looked great on the grass (the green carpet). I found masks of the Tubbies and hung them on the walls. I also put out al my son’s Teletubbie toys.
The children’s tables where covered with a Teletubbie tablecloth and my sons chair was decorated with a big crown with the four Tubbies. I prepared a colouring book for each kid and they all coloured the drawings while we waited for everyone to arrive. In the corner of the room was a large wooden board with a whole. I painted the teletubbieland on the board and the sun around the opening.
Each kid put its head through and we made a photograph of him or here. We later send them the photo with a thank you note. I made a Teletubbiedome from a large box, that I painted green. Each kid got Teletubbie and flower stickers and they all had fun decorating the box. We had a big cake with a Teletubbie decoration I bought on the Internet. My son blew the candles and kept saying Again, again. My own little Teletubbie!!! I prepared an other indoor game but during the party, the weather cleared up and the sun came through.
We moved outside and the kids had a lot of unexpected and unprepared fun in my sons play garden. I found a tent with the Teletubbies that was put in the corner of the living room and I put a small inflatable swimming pool filled with small plastic balls inside. I put wrapped gifts in there, and at the end of the party each kid got to grab one. They loved it and where so thrilled to get a gift themselves.
Each kid also got a goodie bag, filled with Teletubbie items I found on the net, and colouring book. The party took some time preparing, but it was a huge success and my son loved it. Seeing his happy face was definitely worth all the hard work.
