Curious George Party!

A Curious George Birthday party was very fitting for our
very active and very curious, Seth.

Seth loves watching Curious George on PBS kids and this theme was all his idea!
I really wanted to make him a big part of the planning of his party, he picked out (with a little help from me) all of the games, party treats, and decorations for the party.

We invited 20 of his friends from the neighborhood and from church.
Here is what the invites looked like:
I ordered them off of this website

The setting of the Party was a park that is located right behind our house.

-we tied bananas on brown yarn and hung them from the trees
-we also had an electronic bubble maker going to add to the fun
-we had green, yellow, red, and blue balloons tied individually on to bananas

When the kids first arrived we had Curious George masks for them to color.
I printed the masks from Here.
We punched holes in the sides and tied on elastic string so they could wear them.

Because all kids color and different speeds, we had a few activities for the kids to play while we waited for all to finish their masks. We had Side walk chalk, two big buckets of balls to play with, and a bean bag toss.

Now Seth picked out all of the games we played,
1st game we played was "Hot Banana"
The kids were all in a big circle, we played the Jack Johnson Curious George sound track as they each passed around the bananas. I had three bananas being passed around to make the game go quicker. When the music stopped, whoever was holding the bananas got to pick out a sticker and sit down and wait for every one to get out.

The Second game we played was Monkey Tag.
Who ever was tagged 'it' was the monkey and got to go and run to tag someone else.
This was a good game, it got them to run around and get some energy out.

The third game was Help George find the Butterfly or pin the butterfly on the poster.
I picked up this poster at the Party store.

Now on to the cake!
I got a big cake at Costco this year.
Seth wanted all chocolate.
I got this little George and Candles at the Party store.

Seth had to have his favorite color RED balloon. Yum look at that big glob of Frosting!

We also had juice boxes, and vanilla ice cream cups along with the cake.

After the kids were done eating they went over and played on the play ground.

We then had a Pinata!
Seth picked out a football Pinata.
Each kid got a few swings at the pinata. . .
but it would not break!

So I ended up dumping the candy out by hand.
Oh well, the kids liked hitting it and then of coarse getting the candy!
I gave them each a little plastic baggie, them told them they could fit as much candy as they could in their plastic baggie.

We then all gathered around and watched Seth open his presents.

After the presents were all opened,
Seth thanked every one for coming then handed out his present to all of them.
In the bag we had a bottle of bubbles, Curious George Fruit snacks, Curious George stickers, a twisty colorful straw, and some banana laffy taffy.

They kids played until parents came to pick them up.
When they left each kiddo got to take home a balloon tied onto a banana and their treat bag.

The party was a success!
I think they all had a great time being curious and having fun.

Happy Birthday Curious Seth!
