loving MAMA to an Angel Babe, Party Queen and proud army brat!
I love my HOUSE and I love my shopping!
Wal-Mart has a few of the party things, like table cloth and some goodie bag type of things.
I did this for my son's seventh birthday this last year, and had a blast. I felt like I was always playing the typical same games every year, so I tried to take some older games that I played when I was younger and change them to the Transformer team...
Deceptican Knockdown-- Whiffle balls, and I took coconut milk cans from the $$ store, and I made a hole in the top to drain them. I covered them in red construction paper, and then put the printed pictures and names on them.
Transformer Bingo-- Which I made myself too by taking various pictures in Paint, and making about 10 different cards. They had to get two lines to win... and we played more than once. After they were printed out I glued to construction paper so that they would be more sturdy.
Transformer's Clothespin Drop-- Old fashion game that I used to play when I was younger. It was just a basic tub, with clothespin's. Nothing fancy. I let my son paint the clothespins cause he was begging me to help and it made him happy. So it wasn't fancy, but WTheck it was his party. Also you have then stand on a chair to do this one, and the container is on the ground.
Guess How Many-- This was fun, and the adults loved this too. We got some pretty fun answers.
I usually go all out with his parties, but this last year we didn't have a ton of money, and I always plan his parties all of January. But I had to take Winter session at school so I didn't have time. I bought all of the stuff, mailed the invites, and then the night before put it all together.
This was his cake, which I was not happy with. I ordered a plain cake from Stater Bros. and got the toy at Walmart for $6. When I went to go pick it up they had lost my order, and the cake had not been made. So they half a**ed putting one together really quick.
Here are some pictures of the games and stuff being played...
Sorry for all the pictures, but I figured an image is better than words sometimes. So I hope that this helps. Have fun!
Oh and I forgot to mention after the games, prizes, goody bags, and the food-- which was hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, soda, juice, veggies, and ice cream. I spent under $100, the biggest cost being food.
Thanks! These ideas are awesome! Looks like everyone had a really good time!
