Ain’t no party like a blue’s clues party (for a five year old)!! And i mean that, I think there ain’t no blues clues party for any five year olds, BUT as I mentioned in the earlier post regarding Molly’s 5th birthday party, she has had a blue’s clues theme in mind for quite some time! In an effort to incorporate the theme we stuck with lots of blue and a scavenger hunt.
To keep the scavenger hunt age appropriate, we used three small chalkboards and put blue paw prints on them. These chalkboards were hung throughout the woods along paths so it would be easy to see.
pops path – my dad (pops) has trails marked at his house, all named for grandchildren and himself of course ;)
The kids travelled by hay ride and kept an eye out for a “clue” (a paw print). When they spotted one, they would jump out and gather as many gold, glittery nature items as they could find.
Then they would hop back on the trailer and look for another clue until they found all 3.
favors: cake pops
it’s not a party without a pinata!
The weather was fabulous (for early February!) so we picnicked and played
and ate blue cake
it was a pretty perfect day :)
