Joseph turned 5 over the weekend and he celebrated in style with his friends and family. As he is a big Moshi Monster fan he asked if he could have a Moshi themed party. Now i’m not very good at planning and dont have much time on my hands to really go all out with it but Jak and myself put our heads together and came up with some ideas for food to serve up and with the help from a lovely lady who i found on twitter who helped with me some ideas as what sort of games we could play. Check out www.actoneparties.co.uk.
First up Joseph woke to a table full of presents and cards which he ripped open all too quickly, he loved playing with his new toys and had a game of his ‘Guess the Moshi’ with daddy and big brother Jak.
Joseph was having a party in the afternoon so we had lots of planning to get on with especially tidying up the garden and house ready for all the visitors we would be receiving. The pool was up, clean, chlorinated and heating up nicely, the food was all ready laid out on the table, decorations were up and music all ready to play. Children started to arrive about lunch time and off they all went straight outside to the garden ready to get into the pool and play find Zommers missing eyeball (gross, I know!). I had bought lots of pin pong balls and had drawn eyeballs on them all with only two of them having a gold star on them, the child who found the special Zommer eyeball received a little prize.
After about an hour We had to grab the children out of the pool so we could carry on with some of the games we had planned for the party, we had A moshi hunt where the children had to hunt out their very own moshlings which were hidden in the garden, some in the sandpit and some in the goo that we made up, then they all strutted their stuff in the Zac Binspin Rockstar disco where i chose a couple of groovy dancers to win a prize and then it was time for them all to sit down and eat some moshi grub. We did have the BBQ going as well so there was quite a selection of food for them to get their teeth into.
The children had some original party food along with Dirt sandwiches, Quenut butter, Sunshine Berries, Garlic Mushrooms, Grand Gateau, Bangers and Crash and Egg Flowers and for juice they had Toad Soda and Fango Mandango
After a spot of food they all went outside to bash the Pinata, they all loved bashing away and took some smacking for it to drop all of the goodies, then they all popped back into the swimming pool for some more play and games. We didn’t even have time to play pass the moshi but i didn’t care as the children seemed to be enjoying themselves splashing around and jumping into the pool.
Joseph had a brilliant day and really had lots of fun, so thank you to everyone who made his day a special one. He got spoilt with all the presents and money he received and it was hard for me to drag him to bed as he didn’t want his birthday to end. We have another cake to give him today when he comes home from school and a special birthday meal, which he has chosen to be noodles and chicken.
