The Dora party has come and gone and I think it was a success! The kids were into the adventure theme and really seemed to enjoy all of the activities. Sorry for the picture overload...but here it is!
|Mia and Dora. All of the kids got to take their picture with Dora before starting out on the adventure.|
|Here are the party guests with their maps and backpacks.|
|The start of the Adventure!|
|First adventure: Drive the Dora Jeep through around the track.|
Next Stop on their map:
Then onto Isa's Garden:
|The kids planted seeds into a little cup to take home in their backpack.|
Up next was Crocodile Lake
|The "lake was made out of two tarps positions about 1 foot apart. The kids crawled through trying to avoid the crocodiles inside.|
Then it was time to find the pirate treasure!
Then finally down the balloon path to the Pinata!
|He put up a good fight, but we finally broke the candy free!|
Here is the Decor:
|Tissue paper wreath. Pool noodle, 5x7 sheets of tissue paper folded in half, hot glue and ta dah!!! Cheap and easy, the best kind of projects!|
|Star Cookies made by "Aunt Mandy." So cute, huh?|
|Table Skirt is made from stretchy ruffle fabric.|
|Balloon Towers made from PVC pipe and balloons bound together with a zip tie. Super easy!|
|Drink station with mexican mineral water and pineapple punch.|
|This was the inside of the map that the kids used to get through their adventure. I made it in Microsoft Word.|
|The kids had their own party tent.|
|We set up a Dora playland for the babies. They needed to have some fun too!|
|Guests could also make their own Dora bracelet.|
|We had to serve Dora yogurt!|
|Pre-scooped Ice Cream made it so easy to serve. I used Dora cupcake liners and star sprinkles to dress it up!|
Time to celebrate!
|Tripp and Pops|
|Mia and her girls: Stella, Chloe, and Kendall|
|Tripp and Aunt Chelsi. I know it was Mia's party, but he is so cute and not a moving target yet!|
|Pops and Ya-Ya with the kids.|
|Richard and I, he is slightly annoyed with my Mom's picture taking. Can you tell???|
|Me and my little man!|
|I think this face proves that the party was a success!!!|
I know these parties selfishly feed my desire to be creative, but Mia loves a good party too! As long as she enjoys it, I am happy to do it!
Feliz Cumpleanos Mia!!! What a Fiesta!
