A Three Little Pigs Party

Three Little Pigs PartyIs one of your favorite stories from childhood The Three Little Pigs?  It’s a classic tale of a wolf and his three little pig friends, one of whom outwits the wolf and saves his brothers too.  If your child loves pigs and this classic story, this would make a great birthday party theme for your child and his friends.

For a party invitation, I love DIY pig cards that will be perfect for this party.  Using square heavy card stock fold it into a large enough card to place a pink medium-sized circle glued atop the front of the card.  Embellish your pig with a snout, eyes, eyelashes, and ears by cutting out black and white shapes to make your pigs.  Write all of the party details on the inside of the card.

Easy Coloring Party

If you have a toddler who is about to celebrate a birthday and you are looking for a fun yet budget-friendly party plan, why not let coloring take center stage? It’s easy, creative, and entertaining. For inspiration, check out these coloring activities:

  1. Print out any variety of coloring book pages from the Internet, and have fresh boxes of crayons available so the guests can color the pictures.
  2. Spread a large piece of butcher paper out on a wall, large table, or the floor, and have the kids draw a mural scene or happy birthday wishes.
  3. Have different sizes of boxes available (large ones will be the most fun!). Have the kids color and decorate their own boxes. They can take their coloring box creations home as a goody. If the boxes are large enough, cut out openings so the kids can climb in. Tons of fun!
  4. If it is nice outside, have the kids create sidewalk murals using chalk.
  5. If you will be handing out small goody bags, give the kids brown lunch bags to decorate before you fill them with goodies. Good ideas for favors include a coloring book and fresh box of crayons.
  6. Play Find the Crayons! Hide crayons around the party area for the kids to find.
  7. Play Hot Crayon like Hot Potato.
  8. Check out these crayon-shaped cakes for added fun.
