Best Kids Parties: Where the Wild Things Are Rumpus

My Party

Name: Avery (3)
Location: Norfolk, VA

For Avery's Where The Wild Things Are party, we wanted to create an environment where the children could actually experience the story.

Upon arrival, we painted each child's face and clipped on a wolf tail and a pair of ears. Once the party guests were all in attendance, we marched to the backyard and the children paraded while beating on festive coffee can drums and blowing kazoos. It was a true wild rumpus.

I purchased "werewolf" faux fur and was able to make all the invitations, ears, and tails with one yard (on sale for $10 a yard). The drums/shakers were recycled coffee & Pringles cans filled with beans and wrapped with a patterned paper I made to match the theme. And the cupcakes were primarily composed of candy corn and marshmallow candies.

Thanks Cassie! Readers, see more of this party on Twittering Bird.
