It was held 2 days before I had a Law assignment due. My week leading up to it was a surreal mix of reading murky contracts Law and trying to bake an iceberg. It almost blew my brain, but somehow we got through. Just.
I was very tempted to put it off, but I knew if I didn't do it straight away it may just not eventuate. And my good friend Emma's passion for parties helped me realise that it was important. Parties can be so memorable and magical for children, and I know I have a small window left before the Rocket decides he is too old and too cool for a homemade party like this.
I got lots of inspiration from Pinterest and from Emma's blog, and links to other parties from her blog. I highly recommend checking it all out if you are planning a party :)
Here is small selection of the food and activities at Rocket's Penguin Party.
|Fairy Penguin Bread|
|Bottled water relabelled as 'Melted Icebergs'|
|Grissini sticks dipped in melted white chocolate and rolled in blue and green sprinkles as 'Penguin Poles'. |
I have no idea what a Penguin Pole is, it just sounded right on the day.
|My pretty lame attempt at an arctic snow scene, with blue jelly as water. |
Luckily my 8 year old said it was exactly what he was hoping for.
He added the decorations of Penguins :)
|We played musical icebergs (cushions wrapped in white pillow cases). |
This was such a hit we played it twice.
|Pin the fish on the penguins mouth, aka 'Feed the Penguin'.|
|I managed to find some dolphin lollies and put them in individual cups with light blue Jelly.|
Definitely a hit.
Linking up for a party post here!
