Back to Wonderland

by Amy on July 30, 2010

Thank you for all your kind words about Delaney’s Alice in Wonderland party!  Here are a few more details from the day, including our activities and party favors.

(If you missed the first post about our Wonderland party, check it out here!)

We had a variety of activities set-up outside for the kids to explore.  One area was the Mad Hatter’s Hat Shoppe, where you could decorate a paper top hat or a velvet art crown (or both!).  The stick-on gems were extremely popular…

There was Wonderland Tic-Tac-Toe, with pre-painted wood shapes from the craft store and sticky-back velcro.

The Caterpillar was busy blowing bubbles (with the help of a bubble machine from the summer clearance section at Target).

The Queen’s Royal Croquet Grounds were set-up with inflatable flamingos {from our local party store}, spiky balls with eyes acting as hedgehogs, and giant card wickets {4-pack posters from the casino section of the party store}.  Natalie wanted to be the Queen of Hearts, so I found her an inexpensive red and black dress on eBay and taped red foam hearts to her shoes and to a crown from our dress-up stash.

I dolled-up the drink containers and sandwiches with drink me signs and eat me toothpicks.

The party favors were these “color-me” doodly composition books {Target}, mechanical pencils, and candy sticks.

Other stuff I didn’t get pictures of:

Momeraths made with colored craft sticks, feathers, and googly eyes {Disney Family}

Edible Teacups made with ice cream cones {Disney Family}

We hid clues and had a White Rabbit hunt.  The kids loved this, and we surprised Delaney with the plush White Rabbit from the Disney Store.

I think this six-year-old was quite pleased with the whole affair…

Happy 6th Birthday, Delaney!
