Theme: Wreck It Ralph
My son adores Wreck-it-Ralph, so that was the theme for his birthday. It was a pretty easy theme as half the movie is set at 'SugarRush' a land made of candy. I had the party after school on a Friday and I had a few of my older nephews and nieces to help corral the kids when needed.
Lots of cute cupcakes made a great cake.
All the food was really simple and could be made the day before and then stored in the fridge or airtight containers.
The activity of making their own 'lickity splits' went down a treat, and I was surprised that the boys got way more into this than the girls. It was a great time consuming and relatively cheap activity $12 at the local cheap lolly shop, and $5 at the supermarket for the cones and biscuits. The Cybug squash is always a hit, just small balloons with lollies inside. I'm sure my neighbours thought I was setting fireworks off in my backyard, lol. We also set off mini geysers, using those mini diet coke bottles and mentos. Kids thought that was hilarious.
Decorations set the party scene.
