Yesterday was Cayley’s 3-year old birthday party. Since she loves Max and Ruby, we wanted to make that the party theme. Thankfully I started planning this over a month ago because there are no licenced Max and Ruby party supplies. So, I had to get creative and come up with my own ideas. So … I started with these websites that I found:
A blog from someone else who did a Max and Ruby party, the author (Rosemary Wells) website, and Nick, Jr.
So, I worked on printing out coloring activities for the tables, printing out most of the “bunny party” ideas from the authors website, bought a homemade Max and Ruby pinata from ebay (super cute), made lilypads and a grass poster for to decorate the bathtub for one of the games, printed out stickers, ordered mostly solid colored plates/cups, books and windup toys for party favors, etc…
So here was my party schedule:
11am – Kids arrive — color on tables and eat lunch
11:30 – Ring toss game/Pin the tail on Max
11:45 – Watch Max and Ruby – cake episode (momma hides frogs)
12:00 – Game – Find Max’s frogs and put them back into the pond
12:15 – Pinata
12:30 – Sing Happy Birthday and Cake
Now I will just let you follow along with the party pictures. Let me know if you want to learn more about something!
