These Party Ideas include suggestions for invitations, activities, and more, to get all your guests aflutter!
A Lush Garden
Hang tulle netting on the walls and ceiling of the party area. Hang mini butterflies, ladybugs and flowers on the netting. Cut large butterfly shapes out of butcher paper and lay them on the ground leading up to the party entrance. Set out vases of silk or fresh flowers. Cut large flowers out of colorful felt or construction paper and tack them to the walls of the party area. If you have a ceiling fan in your party area, hang plastic or paper butterflies from each of the blades and turn the fan on low. Hang colored streamers from tree branches in the yard. They will float in the breeze and add to the party atmosphere. The butterflies will fly above your party. Cover the table with a red tablecloth, cut circles out of black felt, and glue to the tablecloth. For table decorations, line miniature clay flowerpots with green plastic wrap and fill with small candies; then place a round lollipop standing up in the center of each pot to resemble a flower. Tie groups of red and black helium balloons together and anchor them in place with balloon weights. For greater impact, combine shaped balloons, such as a butterfly balloon, with colorful latex balloons. Tie a balloon to the back of each chair, and tie a group of five balloons to the birthday child's chair!
JorSam’s Butterfly and Ladybug Money Boxes are a party pack, a gift, an activity, a savings plan, a hold all and whatever else creative kids can dream up as a use for them! This is fantastic for your Butterfly and Ladybug party theme! They are 9.5cm high and 7.5cm in diameter. The removable plastic lids (with a slot in each lid) are available in 5 different colours - red, blue, yellow, green and pink!
Word Scramble: Get a word scramble! This can be used to keep your guests occupied at the beginning of the party until everyone has arrived, or as a quiet activity when you need to bring the energy level back down during the party.
Nature Scavenger Hunt: Divide the children into groups of 4. Assign an adult to monitor each group during their hunt. Make a Checklist based on whats at the party venue. Then give each group one copy of the Nature Scavenger Hunt checklist, a pencil or pen, and a bag.
Send the groups outside to start searching for the items on the list. Instruct them to place all the items they find in their bags. Once a team finds all the items, they must hurry back to you. The first team to come back with all the items wins a prize/Moneybox Party Packs!
Flowerpot Toss: Cut a large leaf shape from the green construction paper. It should be large enough for a child to stand on with both feet. If necessary, cut two leaves and staple them together at the base. If playing the game outdoors, use sidewalk chalk to draw a flower shape on the driveway with three stems of differing lengths. Place a flowerpot at the top of each stem to represent the flower, and place the paper leaf at the very bottom. Let each guest take a turn standing on the leaf and tossing the ladybugs (get from craft store) into the flowerpots. Award one point for landing in the closest pot, two points for the middle pot, and three points for the farthest pot. The guest who scores the most points is the winner. If you wish, have a flower sticker ready to put on each player and a Moneybox Party Pack/Flower pot as the prize for the winner.
Fly Away Home: Lay out green scatter cushions around the party venue. Tell your guests that, when the music starts playing, they should hop and skip around the party area, pretending to be ladybugs flying through a garden. Then, when the music stops, they must each find a leaf (scatter cusion) on which to land. To begin the game, start playing the music. Stop the music after a few moments, and wait while each of your guests finds a leaf. (In the first round, there should be one leaf per player.) Start the music again, and then pick up one leaf while the children are moving around the room. When you stop the music the second time, all but one child will have a leaf to stand on; this child must leave the garden (i.e. sit out until the end of the game). Continue playing, removing a leaf after each round, until only two children are left in the game.
