Play-Doh Party {Real Parties}

 

This joint boy/girl play clay party was done at the request by my friend, for two little cousins who were both turning three. Play-Doh is such a universally loved item amongst the preschool crowd, so I knew it was the perfect theme.

Here are a few pics:

And the frameable for the boy!

The moms decided to make jumbo marshmallows look like Play-Doh tubs, so I made them a printable that they could take to a baker and have printed on edible paper and with edible ink. Then they cut the strips out, and got the marshmallows slightly damp before applying the wrap. They finished off by dipping the top in sprinkles to look like the colored cap of the Play-Doh tub. They said the project was easier than they’d expected. And you can see how cute the results were!

Here is the banner. The party was held at a mixed martial arts gym, which is owned by one of the dads, who is also a UFC fighter. The gym (called Fight Ready, located in Scottsdale, Arizona) is not usually a party location, but it worked out great because of all the padded mats on the floors. What more could you ask for when you have a group of 3-year-olds? And…. a cage for the naughty ones! (Kidding, but the cage or fight ring was fun for the kids to play in).

The hosts decided to go with cupcake wrappers instead of toppers, although you can use both at the same time, and both are included in the collection.

They also had a Play-Doh tub shaped fondant cake for each of the birthday kiddos. So cute!

The hosts asked for a sign for the favors, so we came up with one that could be used as a regular sign, or could be wrapped around a bucket to make it look like a Play-Doh tub.

(Note that the collection includes 1 inch tags that can be put on the top of these favor-sized Play-Doh tubs.)

I thought it was such a great idea to have a Play-Doh table available for play time. Even the adults decided to play for a while. 🙂

Batman Party

Superheroes are a popular theme for many little boys (and girls!). The Caped Crusader is a perennial favorite. My friend’s little boy wanted a Batman theme for his 3rd birthday, and so did his cousin (a girl), so they had a joint party.

This is the type of invitation I made:

The invitation is in my shop found here.

The uber-creative moms and grandmother of the birthday kids made Batman capes and masks as favors for all of the guests. So I designed a favor tag to attach to each set:

If you make something similar, don’t wait until the end of the party to hand them out!  They were VERY popular with the kids, who wore them throughout the party. The photos of the groups of tiny superheroes were just adorable!

Here is my little cutie in his mask and cape:

I also made extra signs to use as decor, such as this one:

Here are the items included in the collection, which is available for purchase here:

I also have extra favor items available, such as these stickers, which fit perfectly on the bottom of Hershey’s Kisses, as well as on Rolos, Mini Recee’s Cups, etc. (These are printed by me and shipped to you, because they are stickers):

The stickers are available for purchase here (select ‘Batman’ from the drop-down menu).

And this theme is not just for birthdays! Customers have also used it for bridals showers, baby showers, etc.

Here are the Kiss Stickers that a customer used for a bridal shower:

There are more Superhero party ideas found on my Pinterest board, including ideas for the cape and mask project.

I hope this fun co-ed party inspires you to create something fun for your little Superhero!
