So I didn't get a lot of pictures of the party because my phone is out of memory and my camera was constantly going missing! But here is the fun of the party, if you have read the book this will all make a lot of sense. . .
For the decorations
Fox's Underground House & the rocks where Mouse was meeting the Gruffalo
Owl's Tree Top House and the stream where Mouse was meeting the Gruffalo
Snake's Log Pile House and the lake where Mouse was meeting the Gruffalo
After listening to the story, the kids all got to dress up as Gruffalo, I hand made all the purple prickles (purple paper glued to mini clothespins), orange eyes (glasses with orange plastic wrap), poisonous warts (green colored circle stickers) and most of the terrible claws (black foam with Velcro)
It's a Gruffalo!!
After that I had a few other games planned but it turned into just a free for all with the balloons so eh, let them have fun and eat cake right?!
Most of these ideas were my own from reading the books but I did get some for the food on Pinterest.
