The birthday party is all over for this year and I'm happy to report that everybody had a lovely time.
These are the adventure books that I put together. They were easy - just a matter of printing out the templates/pages and the sticking the pages into A5 exercise books.
The adventure books have badges that you can earn once you complete an activity. Ideally I wanted to stick the badges on cardboard and punch out with a circular cutter for everybody, but I just ran out of time. Instead, I popped the two sheets inside the book.
The 'Up' cake was pretty awesome. I baked 4 individual square cakes and Rich turned them into a 3D house for the party. Bella declared it was the best cake ever.
Present opening. Such lovely and thoughtful gifts received, including a wad of pretty erasers - Bella is now starting an eraser collection!
We played lots of games. I think the most popular one was the cotton ball game. You take it in turns (wearing a blind fold for 30 seconds) and try to transfer the cotton balls with a big spoon into an empty bowl. The one that transfers the most cotton balls, wins.
Some of the party food and room set up:
It was a great morning with Bella rating her party an 11/10. Awesome.
