Kids Survivor Birthday Party Games

Little one's 6th Survivor birthday party has been a long time in the making; from the piñata, to the party favors, all the way to the last details of the games!   The day of the party everything was carefully orchestrated to make it a party of a lifetime! We had close to 45 guests! 18 kids were invited, and of course, the parents joined them as well. 

This was my agenda for the party (the planner in me has to have everything written down): 


Tribe assignment: Blue tribe, and Red tribe. Each received a buff (bandanna), and two moms were the tribe leaders.

Kids DIY Spanish Postcards

A wonderful way to encourage my up-and-coming bi-literate reader is for him to make his own post cards in Spanish!  Making his own Spanish postcards helps him with letter identifying, word building, and writing skills.  

For the postcards I used white card stock paper, stickers, and different stamps.  He had a great time making the postcards, and was looking forward to mailing them out to his Abuela, primos y amigos.

¡Hasta luego!

Kids Survivor Themed Birthday Party

We are huge Survivor fans! So what better way to celebrate our son’s 6th birthday party with a Survivor theme!  Of course, this was my husband's idea, and our child ran with it!!! Little one went crazy coming up with different challenges for the tribes, and ideas for his birthday. We did a lot of brainstorming, and of course, I scoured the internet looking for ideas.  

For the invitation I didn't do anything fancy.  I created an event on Facebook with the details for the party. Since our son's party is in July = major heat I planned to have the party from 10 a.m. - 12 noon. 

On the invite I had the following:   
  • Bring the kids in swimming gear! Bathing suits, swimming trunks, and an extra set of clothes. The kids will get wet! We’ll also have kiddie pools to beat the heat!
  • Make sure to read the welcome board to see what tribe you're assigned to.
  • We will have an auction just like in Survivor, but with fake money! Have your kids brush up or practice simple math up to $20, and how to bid!
  • Last but not least, lunch will be served!  So let me know how many adults will be coming as well. 
  • Survivor! Outsmart, outlaugh, and outfun!!!! 
We had the party in our yard. It was set-up with the challenges, auction table, cake table, and a green swing decorated for the gifts.

I set-up two areas in the back yard with the tribe's names (we went for simple) Red Tribe, and Blue Tribe. I printed the logo that I found on Chica and Jo's website. I decorated a white poster board with the logo, and tiki cut-outs I found at the dollar store. Then I taped the poster board to the tiki torches.

Ocean Castaway Slime Birthday Party Favor

We're big Survivor fans in our home, thus the theme for little one's 6th birthday party!

As I searched through Pinterest looking for party favor ideas Bug and Buddy's Ocean Slime Recipe caught my son's attention.  The colorful blue slime with sea creatures on it was something that he wanted me to make for him.  My son was like, "Momma, I want you to make that!"  

I made a batch for him to play, and the rest to make the birthday party favors.  I must say, they came out nicely! However, please note that you should follow Bug and Buggy's recipe as listed. I made a batch with a "generic" brand of glue, and it came out gloppy!  I used Elmer's white glue, and it came out perfectly. 

Little one gave his friends the party favors with a little note saying: 
Thank you for...coming to my 6th Survivor birthday party! Have fun with the "Castaway Ocean Slime!"
