I had the opportunity to host a fun-filled party for 13 of my son's friends! Counting the adults we had 29 guests! We had a great turn-out!
We kicked off the party with the movie premier of the VeggieTales Fennel Frontier movie! Every child that came in was given a special badge with a mask, and a cup of popcorn. I was surprised on how "quiet" and "still" all the children remained! Considering we had 13 children from ages 2 through 7 yrs. old. The movie has a beautiful lesson of sharing, and caring. It was funny (the kids were laughing), and even the adults enjoyed it since it had some of the Star Trek humor. After the movie, we all got our group picture then returned inside the house for some VeggieTales treats.
Of course, if we're having a VeggieTales party we must have veggies as well! Now we also had some yummy treats for the kiddos as well:
Veggie chips in baggies
Corn chips in baggies and salsa in small cups
Baby carrots dip in ranch dressing
Fruit platter (pears/bananas)
Carrot shaped pumpkin cookies
Hummus and pita chips
Vegetable platters (cherry tomatoes, sweet peppers, & broccoli)
Tossed green salad
Spinach tortilla wraps
After both kids, and adults ate. We split the children in to two groups! I had a station with crayons, paper plate planet fun copies, plates, and glue. The kids were to color their own planets!
The other station had dirt, seeds, shovels, markers, and popsicle sticks. They were to plant the vegetable seeds of their choice. They had fun getting dirt, and seeds to plant.
VeggieTales Photo Shoot
To close the party we had a fun photo shoot, and we gave each kid their very own special VeggieTale goody bag.
In the past, I've hosted several parties with House Party. This one was for the premier of the VeggieTales Fennel Frontier movie! I applied to host, and was selected! They sent me a party pack with the DVD movie, masks, coupons, bracelets, activity sheets, posters, event poster, discount coupons, and stickers. All I had to do was invite some friends over, and have a party!
