This party was way back in September, but its been on my list of things I need to get posted for a while. This party was a HUGE HIT!!! I could do this party for every party here forward and everyone would be happy. And I have to be honest... I didn't put a lot of work into ANY OF IT!!!
First we have the invitations. And yes I did get this idea from someone else. I'd love to link them, but I didn't bookmark this idea originally. I saw it and stored it in the back of my mind and used it for this particular party. I wish I could link the original person. If it is you or if you know someone else who has done this please link them in the comment field. It really was/is a cute idea. We had fun with these invitations. I printed them at home, so it was cheap.
How it worked was the kids made there rockets. We had some PVC pipe the same size as the rocket launcher so they could wrap paper around it and design there own rockets. We had markers, stickers, play-dough to add weight on the end and lots of paper and tape out so they could decorate and design as much as they wanted. The stickers were Woody and Buzz stickers to fit the theme of the party. Parents helped and got building there own rockets too. Once they saw that this launcher could send rockets clear over the house and down the road a competition started among everyone. It was a blast!
Yes that last one was full of confetti. A little invention my sister came up with. Thanks for letting me take a hair break and share this idea with you. If you are interested in building a rocket launcher these are the instructions I used. You can find them at this link. I think with everything needed for the launcher I spent just over $20 and that included five extra pieces of PVC for the table to build rockets.
So again this wasn't a very costly party, but it was a lot of fun. If you use this idea I'd love to see pictures from your party. Either link them in the comment field or post to our facebook page. Thanks for stopping by.
