Can’t believe my little guy is 7! He wanted an Angry Bird party, and we had so much fun planning it! For the invitation he wanted to be IN the game. I didn’t know there with birthday levels! It was perfect. I took snapshots on my iphone (clicking the buttons to take a screenshot) and then emailed them to myself and opened them in Photoshop and added Gavin from a picture I took in studio.
For the party we came up with a fun craft- Angry Bird Visors. I got Visors already made in the Angry Bird colors from the craft store along with some orange and black foam for the eyebrows and beak and google eyes. I found a template for the face at this site. It has all the bird and pig faces. I printed and then used that as a template to cut out eyebrows and beaks to keep it easy for the kids. This was also one of the items they took home from the party.
The birthday boy loved his cake. I used buttercream to frost the entire cake and then used fondant to make the clouds and face. If you haven’t used fondant, you should! Super easy. We also played Hot Bird (Hot Potato), Red Bird Says, Bird/Bird/Pig (Duck/Duck/Goose) and Red Bird/Green Bird (Red Light/Green Light). It was fun to play some of the old school party games. I was surprised that some of the kids had never played them and they really liked it! We decorated the table Angry Bird Style with Nesting Supplies, worms and changed out the labels on the soda. Gavin had fun coming up with the names. As favors, the kids got the hats they made, Angry Bird Activity books and a pack of Gummi worms. We used the Angry Bird Gummi’s as prices for the games. Most importantly, Gav and the kids had FUN!
