Katie's son recently turned 5. He is a huge Indiana Jones fan, so what more perfect than an Indie themed party? Leave it to Katie and Cindy to create the atmosphere of a great Indiana Jones move, all while making the kids the lead role. I guess you could say kids parties are our favorite to do!
The party was held at Momma Labonte's house (because of the pool). the kids were able to swim and have fun. Cindy set up a great obstacle course for your young Indiana Jones and guests to run through. It was so fun. While the kids were running through the course, looking for their treasure and artifacts, we the parents, were shooting "poison"darts (q-tips out of straws) at them. It was so funny, and the kids thought it was great!
Cindy and Katie made each kid their own hat, whip and satchels. All by hand of course!
The cake was another momma Labonte original, complete with Lego Indiana Jones characters.
For food we kept it simple (I know...simple right), hot dogs and hamburgers. BUT we did have the "poison" drink (blue koolaid) and the "antidote" drink (lemonade). Complete with slithering snakes.
This was a great idea for a kids party! If you are interested in the satchels (which were made from dish towels) and whips, let us know...we could do a "how to" post on them!
