Well, I’ve gotta tell you that when my kiddos have this show on it just makes me smile. When I hear that line “This is sewious!” I literally giggle because it’s just so darn cute. So I’m instantly loving the idea of this theme! Amy did a fabulous job taking this idea and transferring it from the “small screen” right into her own home!
Enjoy Amy’s Wonder Pets Birthday….
Well we had the party at the park, so there wasn’t much decorating to do. I purchased all the adorable Wonder pet’s birthday supplies. We put a pop up tent for shade and I spread out a huge blanket so people could eat on the grass in the shade.
Games & Activities:
Find a animal:
I thought that it would be cute if all the kids could save an animal so I bought a small blow up pool and filled it with sand. Then I buried a bunch of animals in the sand. All the kids were able to use a shovel to save an animal. All the kids took home the animal that they saved.
Dress like a wonder pet:
I also had capes made for all the kids. I had someone sew them since I don’t sew and then I made and glued all the wonder pets emblems on to the back made out of felt. It took a long time to do, but so worth it! All the kids loved the capes.
I decided to break out the face paints and created a board of all the animals I could paint on the kids faces.
I must say I think I did a lot better this time around creating the fly boat wonder pets cake. I used the sail and characters from Emelia’s toy fly boat. I took chocolate covered doughnuts and dipped them in melted colored blue frosting. I also used marshmallow’s for the jets in the back and colored M&Ms for the lights. Then I took the sail and the wonderpets characters from Emelia’s toy fly boat it was the perfect touch to finish her cake. I was really proud of my self in the end. I also made cupcakes and put a wonder pets ring on top for the kids.
The only themed food I served was celery sticks with various spreads. We did a ranch dip, Peanut butter, and cream cheese. You can’t have a wonder pets party and not server celery.
We also rented a snow cone machine. That was so much fun and all the kids LOVED it!
