Since we shared one of Kyles favorite parties, Kara wanted me to share one of hers too. One of her favorite themes was her Cat Party.
In this picture kara is modeling the accessories of the day. Each girl was given a headband with cat ears. I bought bundles of headbands at the dollar store. I wrapped each one in black fabric and then glued on ears made from felt. She is also wearing a cat collar we made during craft time. I bought a package of pony beads, a package of wooden fish beads and a couple packs of pipe cleaners. I also had a small bag of jingle bells left over from Christmas that we added to the collar.. I don't know what it is about little girls pretending to be animals but they LOVED rolling around and acting like cats.
Another activity we played that I do not have a picture of was our fish hunt. I bought a bag of mini plastic fish from Oriental Trading Co. They were hidden all around the yard and the girls had to go fish hunting. To this day, I still find an occasional plastic fish in the yard.
The last activity we were able to play outside before it started raining was a scavenger hunt. I bought some cardboard fish at the dollar store and used them for the clues. I wrote the clues on the back of each fish, which led them to their next clue. The last clue lead them to the front porch where they found their goody bags
here on Family Fun. These were a huge hit with the girls.
Hello Cupcake, but I ran short on time. This is a quicker, more simple version.
We opened presents and then the girls did what little girls do.. had a dance party until their parents arrived.
One of our inspirations for the cat party. We just got her from the Humane Society a few weeks earlier. She is still super sweet and has been featured in my "Weird Things My Cats Do" posts.
