Angry Birds Birthday Party

Tales of Mommyhood angry bird party photos

Today was the day my son has been waiting for - his Angry Birds Birthday Party. He turned 6 on Thursday, and his party was this afternoon. It all started with the invites. We invited 9 friends - and 7 were able to attend. That meant we had NINE kids in our house running around (including my own two).

Here are a few pictures:

We were outside in the yard when the kids arrived; the first 20 minutes or so were spent playing on the play structure and tag.  Then we headed inside and the kids were able to rotate through the game stations we had set up:

Angry Bird Bean Bag Toss (we used an existing bean toss frame, and hubby made a new insert to fit the angry bird theme)

Piggy Bowling (I glued/taped a nose and eyes onto green plastic cups, and we used a large Chewbaca bird from the star wars line as the bowling ball)

Pin the tail on the bird (a large cling sheet that came in a set, I cut out tails for the kids to use)

Next up was food - here is my version of a watermelon bird;

and then CAKE - I was hoping to make a really elaborate angry birds cake, however, my son came up with the design - since it was his birthday party and cake, I was happy to oblige. This is probably the easiest cake I have EVER made

Mr. J designed the cake - Kit Kats were used as the toppled structure and sling shot

  5. Watermelon idea was GENIUS, I tell ya. Good work, Momma!

    1. not my idea - I saw it on pinterest! thanks for your comments!

  6. My girls are nuts for this app. They have almost all the incarnations. Angry Birds Rio, Angry Birds Star Wars, Regular Angry Birds. I love the watermelon too, but the bowling is awesome! That's something my kids and I can easily duplicate in my backyard!! Fun ideas. Thanks.
