I finally got my act together and gave Audrey her 7th birthday party. Her birthday was at Thanksgiving time but you know how busy the holiday season can be, so missy didn’t get one until this past weekend. It was her very first birthday party she’s had where she got to invite friends and she was so excited, not to mention helpful in the planning.
She chose the theme Hello Kitty. I found plenty of inspiration online for the party and then this great Hello Kitty birthday printables kit for FREE by Shery K Designs was perfect. The printables are adorable and the variety of items to use are just great.
These little favor bags were made by printing off one of Shery’s designs and then cutting and folding it. Aren’t they the cutest little things?
Strawberry Milk. This was my kid’s first time to have it. Verdict… they liked it.
I took jelly jars, wrapped them with a bit of lace, secured it with a dab of hot glue and then tied pink yarn around the lace. I cut circles the same size as the canning jar lid out of one of the free printable papers in the Hello Kitty kit and attached the circles to the top of the canning jar seal with some hot glue. Russell then drilled a hole in the middle of the lid for the straws.
Cupcake toppers made from the Hello Kitty printables kit.
The food was intended to be just a little snack. Peanut Butter & Strawberry jelly sandwiches, Tuna fish on crackers (kitty’s like tuna ), carrot and celery sticks in cups with some dip in the bottom. I’ve wanted to do this relish idea for a very long time and I finally got to try it.
The back of the chairs where the kids sat to eat their snack.
I printed off the big Hello Kitty on the wall from Printmaster. We used it to play “Pin the Nose on the Kitty”.
For the games we played:
- Hidden Mice
I printed off about 25 mice and hid them in different areas of the house which the kids had to go and find.
- Untangle the Ball of Yarn
Each of the children had a different colored yarn they had to untangle from the other kids’.
At one point all the action centered on one spot. I did have to spread the yarn at this point with my fingers because it was wanting to become one big knot. I would spread the yard and then they were able to figure out where to go with their cardboard skein.
- Drop the Clothespins into the Bottle
- Pop the Popcorn
Using a bunch of balloons, we put them all on a sheet and had the girls hold the corners and wherever else they wanted. When we told them to “Turn on the Popper” they would shake the sheet and try to make the “popcorn” fly out. We adults were trying to keep them in and as long as there was popcorn in the popper the kids had to keep shaking.
- Pin the nose on Hello Kitty
- Break the Pinata
Moving cottonballs from one bowl to another using Vaseline on the tips of their noses
We only used 5 cottonballs but they easily did it in 1 minute. Also, it was better to put a nice big dab of Vaseline on the ends of their noses, otherwise it wore off too quickly.
- Finally, our little kitties had to drink milk from a saucer.
Then it was time for our snacks, candle blowing and the opening of presents.
Audrey had a fun time and has decided that she wants to have another one in the future.
Happy 7th Birthday to my little Audrey.
