I’ve never thrown or hosted a birthday party before, but for my son’s 10th birthday I wanted to do something special for him. Elijah was so excited, I was super nervous. Spoiler: In the end, everything turned out great.
Keeping with the ice cream theme, I cut out an ice cream cone shape (inspired by Oh Happy Day’s ice cream printable) out of wrapping paper and card stock and glued it to a poster board for a DIY pin the cherry on the ice cream cone. I printed out free clip art cherries and had the kids write their names on them before pinning tapping them to the ice cream cone. The game proved to be pretty unchallenging for a lot of the kids, but I like to think they had fun anyway.
So I survived hosting a birthday party in our small home that my son and his friends actually enjoyed. That’s a win in my book! Tomorrow I’ll be back to share details of the party hat station, which was a blast.
