"By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; and by knowledge its rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant treasures." Proverbs 24:3

Angry Birds Birthday Party

The Anchor is now five years old!  Over the years he has chosen some interesting birthday party themes.  We've had construction vehicles, purple monkeys, medieval times, and this year:  ANGRY BIRDS!  


Now this is one happy five year old!
Coloring Pages:


You can print Angry Bird coloring pages here:  http://www.cartoonjr.com/angry-birds-coloring-pages/  They make for a great time filler as you are waiting for guests to arrive.  Use them for a coloring contest.


 Take Home Craft:


 I was going to do this green pig paper plate craft:  http://kidsparties123.com/crafts/angry-birds-pig-puppet-craft/,  but I couldn't find green paper plates anywhere.  I was wandering aimlessly up and down the aisles of the Dollar Tree when a brainstorm hit.  Angry Bird cup/pencil holders!  I bought these plastic cups 6 for $1.00 in Angry Birds colors.  I used yellow foam for the beaks, black cardstock for the eyebrows, and large google eyes.  


"Who doesn't like google eyes?"  My sister asked me over the phone.  


Easy Cheesy!  The kids were very creative.  One used the eyebrow as a mustache and another used multiple eyes to make an Angry Bird alien.  

Happy "Birday" Banner and Bird Balloons:


I completed the banner while watching The movie "Not Without My Daughter."  Random, I know!  I just made the letters an enormous size on the computer, printed them, cut a bunch of circles out, glued them together, punched holes in them, threaded a long ribbon through each tiny little hole, and before I knew it Sally Field was telling her baby girl they were home as they gazed at the beautiful American Flag flapping in the breeze.


You can download the Angry Birds font for free here:  http://smashingfree.com/angry-birds-font-download/  The font is called "Feast of Flesh."  Kind of a gross name, but who cares, it was free.  


You can print the templates for the balloons and get lots of other cool ideas from this site:  http://www.thepartyanimal-blog.org/angry-birds-birthday-party-theme/.  


I kind of went crazy and stuck these cute faces here:


AND on the the goodie bags:


AND I even wore one on the front of my blue dress.  Too bad I didn't get a picture of that.


Games:  

Mr. Incredible had already made a bean bag toss and a ring toss game for a recent Cub Scout event, so I just Angry Bird-alized them to fit our party theme.  I got really good at drawing green pig faces.




Pin the beak on the bird:  


A classic birthday party game with an Angry Bird twist.




Slingshot:


What would an Angry Bird birthday party be without a giant slingshot?  I'm not sure, because we definitely had one at ours.  Don't even ask me how Mr. Incredible made it.  All I know is that rubber surgical tubing and a hard hat was involved.  


Fruit Kabobs:  


I used Angry Bird cupcake toppers to decorate these colorful fruit kabobs.  You can print some super cute ones for free here:  http://thebestgiftidea.blogspot.com/2011/09/angry-birds-printable-cupcake-topper.html  


Cake Time:  


I decided to go easy on myself with the cake this year, so I just used the Angry Birds game pieces that we already had and made a little scene on the cake.  (No multiple batches of colored fondant for me this year!)  I also used Angry Birds fruit snacks to give it a big more color.


Does your child have a birthday coming up?  Be sure to read  Ten Ways To Make Birthdays Special.  Because we know it's not about the party.  It's about making your child feel special, and giving thanks to the ONE who gave them life.

  14. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than
    just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and
    all. However just imagine if you added some great images or video clips
    to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could definitely
    be one of the best in its niche. Wonderful blog!
