Bean’s Birthday Party! Our first Live Show with a Puppet Set

18 Sep

Bean getting the kids all excited, playing “Bean Says”

Bean had his first live birthday party!  Although I did learn a lot from it (and what I need to do differently next time), I think it went fairly well.

The kids had fun and the little girls left playing with their own little stuff “Bean” monkeys.  It was so so sweet!

We had a table set up so that Paris could do facepainting, and a bunch of balloons for making balloon animals with the kids in the living room.  This kept the kids occupied while we waited for all of the guests to arrive.  

Here is the video of Part 1:  Happy Birthday & A Birthday Game!

To make you’re own Birthday Game, just take a piece of foam core board or use a cardboard display board from a discount store.  You can cut holes different sizes and then grab a bag of wiffle balls or bean bags from the Dollar Tree and you’re off!  We didn’t play a terribly organized game, with the huge variation in ages, we just didn’t have the ability this time.  The point was for the kids to have  fun anyway.

Our Purple Monkey Game

You can decorate your game to fit your theme, we obviously used purple monkeys.  Thanks to Paris for making the game boards for us!

Just a quick painting on a display board!

Our “game time” got a little chaotic.  Paris and Abyni haven’t been in charge of a kids birthday party, and both Patrick and I were otherwise occupied.  Next time we’ll make more solid plans for Abyni & Paris so that they know what to do and we can be more organized.  Its been so long since *I* threw a young kids event, that I forgot how much there is to do DURING the games!
