Un-Frogettable Party -1yr- Pin Frog on Lily Pad
Denise in Columbia, SC USA
For my daughter's first birthday I wanted something outdoors. I decided to do a frog party.
The invitation read: Leap on over to our pad...For Katie's TOADily Awesome 1st Birthday...Ribbet your regrets to...
Decorations: Because it was outdoors I kept the decorations to balloons that were light and dark green and light and dark blue and similar colored tablecloths.
Activities: The two games I had were Pin the frog on the lily pad" and "Drop the fly in the frog's mouth" (this was a clothes pin game that kids had to drop 5 clothes pins into the mouth of a frog covering a bucket.
I also had a sand and water table bubbles balls paper and coloring sheets on a picnic table and other toys for the kids to play with outside.
Food: Since I choose it to be around dinner time I had hotsdogs and hamburgers chips fruit and popsicles. The cake was made to look like a pond with a frog sitting in the middle on a lily pad.
Favors: Plastic sand pails with a frog face pasted on the front made out of foam (already pre-made at Michael's Arts and Craft store). Inside the bucket were bouncing ball with a frog inside a foam frog mask frog tattoos pinwheels and a rubber water squirting frog. Kids also got to take home a balloon that I tied to their buckets.
Age range: 1-5 year olds with a total of 9 kids. "
