We showed you a peek of our decorations for our Airplane Birthday party for three year old Cole . . . here is what we did for our toddler party.
We sent out invitations two weeks in advance:
We invited four toddlers as Colton is turning three, and anyone in their families were also invited.
My friend Lisa welcomed them. We had planned on having the check in outside, but alas, it was a rainy day
Lisa welcomed each person, gave them a little nametag, and collected information from each family about their address and their lunch request,
before pointing them in the direction of our photobooth (Terminal C).
Andrew made the little airplane from a pin I pinned on pinterest, we had a place for all of this set outside, but moved it all inside when the rain was predicted.
We put out a little crate of pilot costume accessories, and people participated, including our little guy, what fun!
From the photo booth the kiddos headed outside to color their own plane . . .
And then we all gathered inside for “take off.” I read a book and the kiddos then went off on a Scavenger Hunt.
Each child had to find four “pilot tools” to put in their “pilot bag”: a compass, a propeller, a parachuter, and a map. Once they had all four items they each received their own pair of pilot aviator glasses and they posed for a picture together.
Because the sun had come out we headed back outside for some paper airplane making and flying before lunch . . .
We put a variety of food on compostable trays as our “plane food”
We watched an inflight video that we made, ate cloud cupcakes with airplane toppers, and opened presents.
Colton gave each of his friends a little handmade suitcase as a gift, thanking them for coming to our party.
A lovely little airplane party – Happy Birthday Cole!
Now check out the things we made for the party.
