Dora the Explorer Party
Saturday, we had our now 3 year olds Dora the Explorer party. I had a big Dora Adventure plans but they all went by the wayside as I wasn't feeling up to much. The invitations was the Map from the Nick Jr site. The outside said "I'm the map. I'm the map. I'm the map. I'm the map. Childs name's turning three for details come to me. I'm the map. I'm the map. I'm the map. I'm the map!" Inside said, "Where are we going? (child's name) party." Then I printed the information at the little stops Dora would go to. I hope that makes sense. I made Dora Princess hats out of cone shaped hats and some tissue papper. They loved them. I printed some Dora pictures from the Nick Jr. website. I think they had more fun coloring those than almost anything else we did. Then we played a Dora game where they had to "pin" the flower on Dora's bracelet. We had Dora cupcakes on Dora plates with plastic valentine cups I bought at the dollar store (5/$1.oo). We opened her presents just before the parents showed up so there wasn't too much of "Let's play with this toy!" We sent the guests home with Dora bubbles (from the dollar store), Dora stickers (from the dollar store), a ring pop (having to do with the Dora Adventure) a Dora bracelet, a Dora game (2/$1.00 at the dollar store), and a Dora whistle. I admit I went totally overboard but there where very few children and the dollar store helped a lot.
