I cannot even count all of the parties I have been to over the years, and for all of the parties I have been to, I have met so many nice and very clever Moms and Dads!!! If you are looking for ways to enhance your celebration (besides choosing our ponies and petting zoo, of course) here are a few ideas...all of them borrowed from very creative folk!!!
Paper Bag Sheriff Vests:
Use paper grocery bags, cutting out a vest design and have the kids decorate them...Adorable
Pan for Pennies:
Use any container filled with sand (you can buy playground sand at the hardware store), add pennies and
dig for "GOLD" using hands, pie plates, sifters or....
Hot Dogs around a Campfire:
create a simple campfire circle with logs or rocks and paper flames and have the kids picnic here
Decorate Horse Shoes:
New horse shoes can be purchased at many hardware stores or local feed stores, kids can decorate them using all types of craft supplies...they make great party favors and really cute picture frames.
Use bales of Straw
for theme decoration as well as picture backgrounds and additional seating
Leather Pouches for penny bags or favor bags.
...Also, red bandanas tied on long sticks like hobo bags are very cute and easy to fill with party goods.
...Looks great on tables in flower pots as centerpieces before the kids get them to take home
Make Cowboy Necklaces
Pin the Tail on the Pony
Needle in a Haystack
(a little messy, but very fun) undo a bale of STRAW and make a mound, hide treasures for the kids to find
Have the kids draw or decorate
an 8.5 X. 11 piece of paper and put there names on it, after the party, take to printing shop and have bound together atop calendar sheets...the birthday child can be reminded of their great birthday and friends all year.
Sack and Three Legged Race
Create back yard carnivals by serving snow cones, pop corn, adding balloons and clowns....you can create fun carnival games using balloons, balls, hula hoops and squirt guns.
If you have a specific theme, tell us and we can try to dress up our ponies to match. We can easily do holidays themes, Hawaiian themes, Western themes and whatever else creative.
