Since yesterday was Circus Day – I thought I would post a Circus Party Post for a party we had a while ago! Following the outline of se7en steps to a great party on our practical party page lets get going (If you need details on how to do something then follow the link for that particular step):
Step 1: Invitation: I love personalized invitations. We did a quick google search for “circus ticket images” and you will discover millions of them! With a quick “cut and paste” you can replace the name of the circus to be the relevant “Child’s’s Circus”… Quick, Easy, Done!
Step 2: Party Starter: The most obvious party starter for a circus party is to face paint anything and everything will do: Wild beasts, ringmasters (mustaches and glasses) and clowns, of course!
Step 3: Party Games: These are easy: We did circus training. They had to walk the tightrope, and then do it again with an umbrella! They got a chance to be elephants and balance on upturned buckets. They had to practice their lion roars and gallop like horses in a row and jump through hoops. Practice their juggling. Throw juggling balls through hoops (as apposed to knives!)… really just think of what happens at a circus and you could go on and on!!!
Step 4: Party Craft: Everyone was given a white paper packet at the start of the games and at each “achievement” during the games they received a reward to go in the packet. For our craft we put stripes on the packet to make a tent and then they fiddled around with glue sticks, markers and ice-cream sticks and made their own puppet circus shows. They popped their puppets into their tents and their goodie bags were ready to take home.
Step 5: Party Pinata: This was a shared party… so two pinatas…
Step 6: Party Food: That was easy we snacked on pop-corn and hot dogs.
And the cake was an ice-cream cake of course: a tent for the one party partaker and an elephant for the other.
Step 7: Treasure Hunt: We had a mad dash for bags of candy floss from the local candy store and everyone took their own set of juggling balls home as their party favors.
That’s it – quick and easy… Have Fun!
