Plans are coming along for the cowboy party and the little foxes are getting very excited. We had a photo shoot yesterday for the picture we plan to use on the invitation.
The little guests will be invited to add a signed hand print to a "totem pole" when they arrive and will get a sheriff's badge sticker to wear.
We are going to start the party with a craft; making native american head dresses. Children who finish early, or lose interest, can play in the wigwam or pan for gold in our sandpit. If they find gold nuggets amongst the sand they can exchange them for gold (chocolate) coins at the bank.
Our table deco is looking fab, each child will get a paper cowboy hat at their place setting. After a birthday tea of beans and hot dogs, tortillas and pop-corn, and blowing out the birthday cakes, we'll have games. As we have two age groups there will be slightly different versions of some of the games. We'll have; Pin the Tale on the Donkey, Musical Burro's,(our take on musical chairs) with hand made hobby horses as prizes and Pass the Parcel. We're using the beautiful Belle and Boo Cowboy and Indian badge set as prizes for some games. A bit of a disco (looking forward to putting the music together for that!) and home time with cowboy bandanas containing a sheriff's badges, sweets, balloons and cake as the party bags.
As the hobby horses and decorations take shape I'll put up some more pictures. We'll have this whole party packaged as a Mrs Fox Party Box and on sale in the shop in a few weeks time, so look out for that!
