Jack turned three, and since he didn't have any specific favorite thing I could turn into a theme besides balloons, we decided to just have a good, old-fashioned party with a scavenger hunt. It turned out beautifully thanks to lots of Pinterest inspiration and a few of my own twists.
My son wore a shirt that said, "Happy Birthday to Me!"
Cupcakes & Candy Pops!
Activities / Games
Scavenger Hunt! The kids took a parent and hunted for things in our yard. They got to keep the lemons they picked, as well as any other treasures, and received a prize for finishing the hunt.
Oh goodness.. I don't think I followed a budget- and now we're feeling it! But it was so fun!
Treat bags with M&Ms.
Singing "Happy Birthday" to my son, even if he was grumpy from having his fingers slammed in the door (by me).
What People Ate
We kept it simple in terms of the main meal- giant pizzas from a local pizza place. We had snacks for the kids upon arrival, plus fruit kabobs and some chips.
What People Drank
Plenty of bottled water and juice boxes for the kids. For the adults, beer, old fashioned sodas (like Bubble Up and Dad's Root Beer), and Izze drinks.
Watching the kids do the hunt- they were so fun to watch.
