This past Saturday was Angel's 8th birthday! Where has the time gone??? I remember when I went into labor with him and...yada yada yada...I'm sure you don't care. So, I'll just get to the party :) His birthday theme this year was MINECRAFT! Apparently, it's all the rage. We had a sleepover with 3 other boys from his school. He was so excited to have them over. I'm so happy that they all decided to stay the night. I don't think many of them had been to a sleepover before. It was a big deal for all of us! I made some Minecraft themed party favors, food and we played some Minute to Win It type games. Fun was had by all!
This is what I brought to Angel's class on Friday....Zombie Boogers (grapes). The kids loved them, surprisingly. As soon as I said that they were Zombie Boogers, they went crazy. I had about 5 extra and the kids were asking for them for their mom, brother, or themselves. I was worried they wouldn't like it because it wasn't a cupcake...I was wrong!
I also brought bottled water with a label I made that said, "Creeper Juice".
Sprinkle Pancakes for breakfast the day of his birthday
The birthday boy!
Creeper cakes...NAILED IT! (not!)
The empty plate that says "STEAK" had turkey sliders on it
The party favors: Creeper t-shirt, Creeper water bottle, Steve head. All made by me and the hubs. I'll post the links to the printables soon.
Our first 'Minute to Win It' game. Defying Gravity: keep 2 balloons off the ground for one minute. It's a lot harder than it looks. The best score was 8 seconds.
The next game was to balance a raw egg on a football for 10 seconds. This one was a lot easier....probably because they were holding the football.
They were concentrating really hard...
I called this one 'Jumping Bunnies'. They had to suck the bunny onto the end of the straw and then transfer it to the cup.
Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!
This game was too funny! I smeared Vaseline on their noses and they had to "pick up" as many cotton balls as possible without using their hands.
As you can see, it was really frustrating!
This game had a tie! 3 cotton balls was the most anyone could pick up.
The boys played games outside, played Minecraft inside, watched a couple of movies then went to bed...at MIDNIGHT!!! Then, they were up at 6:15...HOLY MOLY! I was SO TIRED! Why do kids do that? Anyways, it was great!
