Time to set the house a blaze for my little guy’s 3rd birthday party. The pre-school TV show Paw Patrol is pretty big in our house right now and the dalmatian pup named Marshall has a place of honor. That being said it made planning this party a snap.
We filled the windows of the house with construction cut outs of flames and filling his rain boots with flowers to help decorate. I collected every fire truck and hat we owned and they became the centerpieces and accents throughout the house.
We sprinkled the walk way and front yard with flames cut out of foam that were glued onto popsicle sticks. The kids had a blast using the water squirt extinguishers to try and knock them over.
The fun didn’t stop there as I took a stuffed animal cat (aka unicorn my daughter had) and tied a string around it. The kids had fun climbing a step stool with the fireman dress up gear, we had so they could save the kitten in the tree.
After all the fun and games it was time to eat. It was a simple meal with sandwiches and deli wraps. I cut more flames out of foam for the cutlery, and used balloons that are actually cow print for dalmatians.
Cake time is easy and yummy with a sheet cake from our local market.
It was a sweet day filled with friends and family. We thanked our guests for coming to celebrate with everyone taking home their own fireman hats and water squirt extinguishers.
Granted all this party fun happens on the weekends and on no school days, so on your actually birthday I have to send a special lunch into school and a visit to a real fire truck.
How do you make birthday’s special?
