Crocodile Hunter -7yr- Crocodile Hunter Invite
Tabitha in JACKSONVILLE, FL - USA
My 7 year old son is a huge "Crocodile Hunter" fan. Since there is nothing out yet for parties, we put our own together.
First I took a photo of Steve & his wife holding a crocodile (a card from the board game) on the computer. I superimposed my son's photo in his wife's place. Inside, trying to carry the Australian slang throughout, we wrote; "oh crikey! It’s a birthday safari" won't you join me favorite bloke and I on an excursion through the rain forest?
We are on a scavenger hunt for the wildest animals! You'll need your swimming trunks and a towel. We may take a daring climb down a waterfall, so be prepared for some dangerous adventures! The "waterfall" was a waterslide that I rented from a moonwalk place.
We had a 6ft "crocodile" pool float that each boy sat on, pretending to wrestle as I took their photos. Their craft was making frames for the photos. I used tiger striped foam board and glued wild animal foam cutouts in two corners that held the photo at an angle, with a magnet glued to the back, it was ready for the fridge.
I hid plastic crocodile animals through the back yard for the hunt.
I made a crocodile cake, cutting two rectangle cakes free hand, candy corn claws, green icing and marshmallow teeth. The place setting was your "zoology" pattern. I ordered goodie bags and just added crocodile gummy candy.
The 'thank you' notes were the same front cover (like the invitation), I just added "thanks mate!" on the front and my son hand wrote the inside.
It was awesome!
