So I have just completed my annual children's birthday party. I was a hoot! The kids really enjoyed themselves and I (as the lone adult) was not overstressed, even though it rained and the outdoor games had to be nixed.
The Theme was Germs, and I processed each attendee (as a CDC Doctor) and they received a "Lab Coat" and clip board with a pen to mark off the different contaminants they found in the house. There were pictures on each clip board with expected finds (Germ, Virus, Bacteria, and Superbug) and what they looked like as well as a small description of what each item did in reality. They took quite some time to find the items, then we played Germ related games (Virus, Virus, Who has the Virus?, Patient Zero, and Vector Tag). The kids really got a kick out of the different take on traditional games. The lunch provided was also germ themed, with such items as; Antibody bites (grapes), Flagellum Sticks (Carrots), and Blood Cells (red punch). Oddly, no one refused to eat something based on the name, yay win! They then had a bit of free-play time and their parents came to pick them up. It all went well and I was quite pleased.
Sabrina loves it when her plans come together. With a young child in the house there are even more opportunities to plan and execute fun, stay tuned for all the details.
