I had several games planned for the party. We created a scavenger hunt with items like snakes, birds nest ( that I made), bugs, spiders, etc....all things boys love! We hid them all over the yard and then gave each child a list and a burlap bag to "hunt" with.
A few pics of the kids searching for the items on the list.
We also broke into three groups and did activities like sack races, a money dig in sand and fishing. We attached washers to plastic fish and put a magnet on the end of the fishing line and the kids had to catch one of each color fish before they got their prize.
Before the kids went home they got to take their camp bag and fill it with goodies.
I had bug nets and bug suckers, water guns, bug activity books, bug catchers and viewers, bubble guns and balls.
I also had bug and frog puzzles, legos, and water bottles. I used old ammunition boxes, baskets, and rolled burlap bags to hold the goodies.
I used this twig bag to hold more of the take home favors.
Here was the invitation I used. A tent to set the theme!
I am a mom of three boys and a little girl. My boys are 6,9 and 11 years old. My husband is a retired professional athlete.
I have had the decorating bug for most of my life. My favorite holidays to decorate for are Halloween and Christmas. I tend to go overboard with these holidays and ALL parties. I have wanted to create a website for a long time and am very excited to be in the final stages!
