Instead of a cake the birthday mom for this 6 year old boy’s party made bunny cupcakes to compliment her ‘magician’ theme decorations. The ears are split marshmallows pressed into coloured sugar. The eyes and teeth are ready-made confections from a store. If these bunnies look a little nervous I think it’s because they know what’s about to happen to them. Mmmm!
A recent magic show birthday party I did featured a mix of commercially purchased and home made Emoji party decorations. One of the party activities for the kids was to make Emoji balls.
Mom & Dad helped the kids fill yellow balloons with rice using a funnel in the balloon’s neck. The kids then decorated the rice filled balloons to make their own Emojis. (Filling will go faster with a wider bore funnel.)
Parents might want to experiment with different markers before the party as the Sharpies used here smudged a bit. Expo low odour dry erase markers might be a good choice. The dry erase ink actually becomes permanent on latex balloons for reasons you’ll need an organic chemist to explain.
Parties with structured activities like this are always better for kids than the ‘free range’ variety. Bravo Mom & Dad! Google ‘diy emoji stress balls’ for more info.
I recently attended a party for a friend’s elderly dad as a guest. No magic show required for this one. His grand daughter spent hours hand painting the fondant icing with food colouring. The result was a beautiful cake that was almost too good to eat. Almost…!
A ‘rabbit dog’ beats a ‘rabid dog’ every time! This family’s very chill mutt wanted in on the action at a recent birthday party gig. Usually we just take souvenir pictures of the kids looking like a bunny but, hey, if the family pupper cooperates an extra magical birthday memory results. Too funny!
“Thank you for an amazing backyard performance! Kids ranging from 4 to 12 and you keep them all engaged and entertained (including us adults too). Highly recommend! Even the dog is still talking about it!” –quote from birthday mum’s ‘5 Star’ review left on my Google biz page.
For this 9th birthday the theme was Beyblades. The party supplies were commercially purchased but the cake was home made with individual ‘Beyblade’ cupcakes.
Aside from my birthday magic show they had a Beyblades battling tops tournament for the kids the participate in. Parties are always better with some structure and a BB tourney was a great group participation idea!
