Sometimes what’s old is new again. Or what one child has another one wants.
If you remember our Halloween, when I made owl costumes, we are kind of on an owl-kick here!
Owl Party Ideas
Of course, I turned to Pinterest for some ideas. Simply search owl and you’ll have so many fun pictures to ogle. There were a few that I tackled:
- Easy Pinata from paper bags & post-its from Red Ted Art
- Owl Crafts – Easy Treat Bag from Sweet & Simple Living
- Make your own Owl – from my son’s birthday invitations (still had the template)
- Pin the bow on the owl – made up myself per Big Sister’s request
- Owl coloring pages
We had Big Sister’s friends over for a party on Friday night and then family came over on Saturday for a lunchtime party, so the owl theme was enjoyed for two celebrations. Here are some pictures of what we did:
I found adorable owl print table cloths and masks in the party department of Wal-mart. It was a great way to cover the table for the “make your own owl” by glue-ing together the pieces craft.
I folded up another tablecloth for a table runner (the inside was just white and looked too plain), and added the kids’ Digi Owls as a centerpiece. As I’ve written about before, I love using what we already have for birthday party decorations. I did the same for my son’s jungle themed party.
Just like at my son’s party, we had cupcakes, but this time, I let the kids decorate their own owl cupcakes. For our family party, I bought a cake from our local bakery, whoo did such a great job decorating it!
This was a really cute and fun theme, and I couldn’t believe all the owl stuff that’s out there. Some friends even brought owl-themed gifts (drawing pictures of owls on cards, owl crafts, owl p.j.’s).
