Party Time: Pokemon Birthday Party
For Elliott’s last single-digit birthday, he chose Pokemon as the theme. The YMCA provided the perfect space for the kids to run around and I didn’t have to worry about possibly being rained out.
I arranged to have the kids play Protect the Pokemon (a.k.a. King Pin) and made cut-outs of Pokemon characters from wall decorations and some cardboard. This was followed up by running an obstacle course since I figured that’s what Pokemon trainers would do. Almost two hours of non-stop play later, it was time for cake. I used this cake for inspiration and made the fondant Pokemon using these tutorials from Roart I found that used polymer clay.
After cake, we ended with a Pokeball Punchbox. I decided not to make it a trivia game, but that’s option if you need a longer activity. The trading of figures that took place after will eat up some time as well.
