Thomas’ 5th Birthday Party

P1000748.JPGWe held Thomas’ 5th Birthday Party today. It was actually his first real birthday party – you know – with his own friends. Thomas wanted to have a spooky theme, so Luci created an invitation for Thomas to give to five of his friends from pre-school. Thomas decided to invite Clay, Jesse, Riley, Katie and Sorelle. Unfortunately, Clay had his cousin’s birthday party on the same day as Thomas’ party, so wasn’t able to make it.

We got up in the morning and set about decorating the house and table and getting out the food:

Did you like those cakes with snakes crawling out of them? What about the Ghost Biscuits?

Luci set up some games for the kids to play:

  • Ghost, Ghost, Witch (like Duck, Duck, Goose)
  • Eyeball & Spoon race (like egg & spoon race – Luci found some rubber eyeballs from the $2 shop)
  • Pass the Revolting Parcel (complete with some scary prizes)
  • Pin the Eyes on the Ghost
  • Swampy Sludge dig (Luci hid some coins in a revolting green mixture of porridge)

Then we had the cake – a spooky bat cave.

Thomas did enjoy his party. Here’s what he had to say afterwards.
