I made these little invitations for Leroy to give out to his best friends.
While the pizzas were cooking in the oven we played our first game.
The Chocolate Game.
All the kids sat around in a circle, they each had to roll a six on the the dice. If you get a six you put on the pair of gloves and scarf and proceed to cut the chocolate one piece at a time and eat it. This one one of their favourites.
When all the chocolate was gone each child went back to their station and paired up. We had six children so three pairs. They were given a large plate, banana, mandarins and kiwifruit and had to creat a fruit platter the same as the game card they were given. I was so impressed with the final results. Each team made fantastic palm trees on a beach.
Yay.. Pizzas cooked and they looked delicious. We set the table ready to eat.
After all pizzas had been eaten we decorated cookies. Leroy and I made these the day before. They were all Leroy's favourite shapes.
Using Icing pens the boys all decorates at least three cookies each and then lots were eaten, left overs were taken home :)
Austin shared one of his decorated cookies with me :)
Next we played 'The Mystery Grocery Game'
Rob brought out onto the table a tray of 20 items. They had about 3-5 minutes to remember what items they could and then the tray was taken away. They had to write down as many items as they could remember. The most anyone got was 15/20 which was a fantastic effort.
I cut up plates of fruit for the kids who then made fruit Kebabs. They used Apple, Grapes, Oranges, Pear, Kiwi Fruit, Banana and Marshmellows for an added treat.
Breaking Open a Coconut. This was something I had never done before either. Once again we went in pairs. Each child got to pierce a hole in the top of the coconuts and empty the milk into a cup. It was great to see the team work going on with each team. When all coconuts were emptied we tried to break them open but ended up outside breaking them open on the concrete.
After a quick cleanup the boys came back to their stations and were very excited to see they were going to make Ice-cream sundaes.
They each filled up their glasses with ice-cream, choose a syrup.. Chocolate, Strawberry or Caramel, put Whipped cream on the top and decorated with sprinkles, chocolates and small lollies.
There wasn't a drop left in the Sundae Cups when I collected them off the table.
Little mini Chocolates Leroy made the day before for his friends that were added to the top of the Sundaes:)
Most of the boys were very full by now but all wanted to make the Orange twist drink to wash down all the goodies they had been eating.
I was going to make Leroy a Chef cake but at the last minute he decided he wanted a Dinosaur Bone Cake. I was quite proud of how this cake turned out since I didn't have much time to think about it and really had no idea what I was doing :)
Last game before home time
'Jelly Bean Tasting'
Each child was blind folded and had to try and guess the colour of the jellybean they were eating. There were nine colours altogether.
I was amazed how well behaved each kid was during the three hour party :)
Leroy gave his friends a loot bag to take home. They also got to keep their apron and hat and drinking cups.
Apron, hat, recipe cards, drinking cup with bendy straw, pizza pen, pizza lollies, smarties and some stationery all put in a popcorn box to take home.
