Temple Run Party!

Clark wanted to celebrate his birthday with friends this year, and he wanted it to be a Temple Run party! Temple Run themed party supplies are not easy to find, so we had to get creative.

I found a tiny selection of luau decor between the party and dollar store, including these cool tiki napkins, table and hanging decorations. I thought it was reminiscent enough of the jungle scenery and idol imagery from the game. Burlap and raffia were used as accents. 

I used half the burlap for a table runner and sewed the other half into goodie bags ...

... which included finger lights, magnets, and of course a treasure bag of gold. (Actually, better than gold ... chocolate!)

We usually do smaller parties for Clark because he gets so easily overwhelmed, but happily his social circle has been expanding and he wanted to invite a few more kids this year.

Jeff did another series of backyard games like he did for Theo's party, because they were such a hit! This time, we had cold weather to deal with, though the kids did not seem to mind. The games included throwing different size balls into a bucket, flinging bananas through a spinning hoop, running an obstacle course, and finishing up with taking a bite of a donut on a string!

Clark did GREAT and had a good time. Present opening was a little crazy, and he wasn't thrilled with the volume level of his "Happy Birthday" song, but everything went well and it was a fun way to celebrate!
