Andrea's party coming up...

First, I hope you all have fun with the VC. With Andrea's party (Sat) and relatives coming, I highly doubt I'll be around. Really hope you all have fun. Wish I could join you.

Okay, so anyone have ideas for toddler games at her party. The theme is ladybugs with red and black decor. I've already decided to do "pin the spot on the ladybug" and I'm planning a "ladybug toss". Any other ideas. I don't have to have more, but feel like one more would be ideal.

Cross your fingers for me. My battery charger on my camera died this week Sad I ordered another one online and expediated the shipping yesterday, but really crossing my fingers that it will make it (would have to be here by Friday). I have a backup camera, but it doesn't have the video and just is not as good at all.

This website has a bunch of ladybug crafts. There is a cute ladybug crown craft or painting lids or rocks.

I had a bug birthday party for TJ and one of the biggest hits was the pin the spot on the ladybug, only the spots were oreos.

Goodness girls. Of the two boards I posted this on, I thought I would get some ideas from this board, but nope! That surprises me with all you creative ladies.

We decided on the games though. Nancy, made my ladybug yesterday and left spots to pin, can't wait!

I hope your battery charger gets there before the party! Crossing my fingers for you! Have fun at the party, and we'll miss you during the VC!

Oh crap! I just realized I never put the website up that had the ladybug links. So sorry.

Sad I'm sorry...I just now saw this Stephanie. But your ideas sounds great! I hope your camera battery arrives by tomorrow. I can't wait to see pics! I can't believe our little Novembers are already 3! Give Andrea a hug from Kayson. Smile

Good luck with the party!

For one of our jungle themed parties, we bought sticky bugs and let the kids try to throw them at leaf shapes that had point values on them.

Found this game online:
Ladybug Ladybug Fly Away Home
This game is similar to Musical Chairs.
Cut large poster board, or felt leaves. Make one leaf per child. Place the "leaves" randomly around the play area. Explain to the guests that they are going to pretend to be ladybugs. They will fly around the room while music is playing (lively classical music). When the music stops they must find a leaf to land on game.
For additional fun...

Before the party, select some small prizes, or treats. Write a number on the prize using a permanent marker, or a sticker. Then, write a corresponding number on each leaf. When the last round of the game is played, the players will receive the prize that corresponds to the number on their leaf.

Have fun! And I think a great way to unwind from the party would be to get some scrapping done! Smile
