Spooky, Scary Skeleton Party!

D's 4th Birthday Party was a success!

We had his party this past Sunday at our regular location - the Peck Farm Park Orientation Barn.

It was a great day for a party and we had a great turnout.

Here's are the stations that we had set up for the kids:

The kids dressed in all black (or close to) and we had ribcage and leg/arm bone stickers so they could become a skeleton like the b-day boy in his skeleton sweatsuit.  I also had white face paint for any brave takers!

Cupcakes in black/white - with black and white skull sprinkles!  And some fruit, pretzels and candy to snack on!

Coloring sheets that said "I Shook My Bones at D's 4th B-Day Party"

Bozo buckets - but no one sadly knows what they are anymore.  I had skeleton buckets set up - with eyeball balls for tossing.  This didn't really go off as planned - the kids just carried the buckets and balls around.  But it was fun!

Found a picture on Pinterest for this one.  We provided a sheet of black construction paper and a skull head - with glue and q-tips - and the kids created a skeleton on their paper!

Skeleton Candy Necklaces!!  They were a hit!

The kids played with help from their moms that came and we sang happy birthday to D.  After a bit I handed out the goodie bags - containing skeleton straws, stretchy skeleton toys, skeleton sunglasses, a gummy skeleton candy and two skull rings. 
Then we headed outside to play in the beautiful weather before it was time to take down the decorations.

I sadly was running around too much to take too many pictures - but I got a few!  Here's some of the fun from our great day celebrating the GREATEST boy!

Costume Decisions

Well he finally decided!  THANK GOODNESS.
And I'm happy to report that we've gone back to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle idea.

D will be Raphael this year (but make note - this is probably because they don't make a Michaelangelo costume).

Now - to see if I can find a way to convince him that I'm actually April O'Neil!
