Happy Birthday Traeden!

Candy Bar Game
I've been planning for a few months now to surprise Traeden with a Birthday Party with his friends from school and the neighborhood.  We normally don't give party's on 11 year old birthdays but I felt like this is a really important year for Traeden to have a friend party so I planned to do a surprise party.  It was so much fun to coordinate with parents, who were completely supportive.  Most of the kids didn't even know they were going to a party until they came home from school and were told then so they couldn't ruin the party.  I thought that was really cool of them!  Here is what we did.

  • While waiting for Traeden to come we played a balloon game where you have to get a balloon on a target by blowing up a balloon and letting it go.  It is really funny to watch where all the balloons land, everywhere you don't want it!
  • Then we did a lego creation game.  We divided into teams and they got a random bag of Legos and a time of 10 minutes and had to create something with as many parts as they could.  They got really creative.
  • We did a skittle game where you had to transfer Skittles from one cup to another cup.  Samantha finished all of her skittles first.  I think she has some good wind power playing the flute.
  • We also did the classic Candy bar game with die.  
  • They played a little bit of Mario Cart and then played outside on the tramp.  
  • We fed them pizza and soda floats.  
This was really fun for me to plan and it was fairly inexpensive to do.  Traeden said it was his favorite birthday ever so mission accomplished.
