so i have to share the cutest birthday party that my sister just did for her twinners.(i’m getting to the point where i need to start carrying around disclaimers for everyone to sign!)
turns out…swiper stole the PARTY cupcakes (dang that swiper!!!)
so everyone got outfited with some backpacks….
time to check the map!
first up..troll bridge…then finding forest…then swipers hideout
turns out the bridge has holes in it! luckily backpack has the pieces that match!!!!
after we all crossed
it was time to check the map again….
FINDING FOREST: there were fun pictures all taped up around the forest…the kids had to search in their backpacks for pieces that matched….
map time again!

How cute is that!?! Perfect party to entertain the little ones! The backpacks were a cool idea!
great great ideas…my daughter is too old to do this but would have loved this.. so fun.

Oh my gosh. I think that is, quite literally the cutest, funnest birthday party I've ever seen. And I don't even like Dora! But my daughter does…
There are very very few cartoon character birthdays that I think have been done really well and aren't tacky… this is totally one of them!
I'm pinning it. Hope your sister doesn't mind my copying every single thing.
Thanks for taking pics–I didn't have a single one!!! CUTE!!!!! 🙂

That's absolutely amazing! My little girl is all about Dora now and I'm sure she would love this kind of a birthday party.
Kisses for your sister!
Kim @ seven thirty three says
AWESOME party! Looks like a great time and love that backpack and map!
That was so cute! my kids have a Mom who's birthday party challenged, maybe I can do better for my grandkids in 15 years 🙂

I love scavenger hunts! It is a staple for our family birthday party's. Check out our this past weekend for my 5 year old daughter. http://hurleythurston.blogspot.com/2012/06/party-ideas-treasure-hunt-bags-clues.html
Where did you find the foam for back pack? My daughter will be three this next year and LOVES Dora.
Kimbo West says
foam can be found by the sheet at walmart–and most craft stores!
Stacey Earl says
We are using this idea for my daughter's birthday, thank you! One question: how did your sister attach the straps? That looks like there was more than a glue gun at work there;-)
Kimbo West says
the straps are reinforced with staples!

Fabulous party! Love the details. Do you have a pattern or instructions for the backpack? Those look adorable!
