Last weekend we celebrated my son's third birthday with a "Where the Wild Things Are" themed party. I created a few things inspired by Pinterest to make it extra fun and we all had a great time. Check out my party!
I created monster claws for all of our guests using craft foam, hot glue and elastic bands. They were simple, cheap and a big hit. Guests also left with bubbles from the dollar store that I applied a custom label to as well as diy monster masks that they were able to color.
For activities I had the coloring masks as well as coloring sheets, a play dough station with wild things themed play dough mats, pin the tail on Max and we also set up a bouncy house in the garage. I also created a Photo Booth area with a boat. For the backdrop I sketched a sea scene on two pieces of butcher paper taped together. I also created a few signs with Arthur's face on Max's for extra fun.
For food we made sandwiches with the intent of making them crown shaped which didn't happen. But, I did manage to make a boat out of watermelon, bake a cake with a fondant crown and create a veggie plate with carrot and pepper trees as well as make some chocolate and pretzel covered marshmallows on a stick (with help from my family). We also had punch and chips. There was almost no food leftover which is always a good sign. I also added a few tissue poms and sketched a backdrop to look similar to the forest from the book.
It was a fun time and I was really happy with how everything turned out. I hope you found some inspiration! Thanks for visiting!
