Birthday Party Ideas?

[deleted account] ( 4 moms have responded )

Im trying to come up with a theme or party idea for my sons' birthday party. Theri birthday are a couple of months away but I like to plan ahead. Their birthdays are October 23rd and November 4th. They will be three and one. Im having their party together because their birthdays are so close together and because we have family that has to travel a good distance. I want something that will be enjoyable for both of them. More than likely the party will be indoors and we will have it somewhere other than our home. Any suggestions are welcomed! Thank You!

When our son turned 3 he requested a 'chocolate excavator' party. It turned out to be a blast. We got those cheap yellow construction caps, bought a roll of 'CAUTION' tape at Home Depot and used it for streamers everywhere. We put it across the garage door and the neighbors thought we were a crime scene!
I made a huge yellow diamond sign from poster board which delcared 'CAUTION, BIRTHDAY ZONE' The cake was easy; chocolate dig sight--crumbled cookies of various types make great piles of dirt, buy some small construction vehicles and have them pushing the 'dirt', etc. We decorated some kind of truck shaped cookies as one of our activities. If you have a Builder Bob fan (is that still popular) you could incorporate some of that. Pin the bucket on the excavator???
Have fun!

For my daughters 1st birthday we had like a winter theme (she was born in December). It turned out so pretty. We had white streamers around the room, with some (not alot) pink streamers. Then what I did was go to Walmart and got some white and silver snowflake ornaments that you can hang on your tree, and looped a thin piece of silver ribbon through them and added a ornament hook to it and hung them all over the ceiling at different lengths to make the effect of snow falling.With the furniture we just covered everything with white sheets. So that it looked like people were sitting on huge snowbanks. It was pretty cool. She was my Snow Princess so her birthday cake had a princess theme to it...nothing to princessy and it had small plastic snowflake rings on it. It was so pretty.Hmmm....I'll have to add some of the pictures onto my profile here .

We did a pirate party for my daughter's 4th birthday (yes, she picked pirates lol). It was a LOT of fun for the kids and the adults. As the kids arrived we put bandanas on each of their heads (we used scrap material for most of them) and drew mustaches/beards on those who wanted them. Then we sent them on a big treasure hunt (it was supposed to be outside, but weather changed our plans and we had the hunt in the house witch worked out fine) with a map I drew (torn and scorched on the edges for effect:D). It led them to a big chest with their party bags full of pirate goodies (eye patch, coins, plastic suction cup gun, and play telescopes--all from the dollar store) Once everyone was decked out in full pirate glory we had a target shoot with the suction cup guns, played a few "pirate" games and ate the treasure chest cake I made (use a bread pan to bake the cake in, then frost with chocolate frosting and pipe on yellow latches and hinges). After the cake and gifts the kids had a blast running around making treasure maps for each other and shooting off their suction cups until time to go home.
