Paw Patrol Birthday Party
I have been putting off writing this post for some reason, but now as I am flying high above the US with a few hours on my hands, I am determined to get it done! My son requested a Paw Patrol birthday party and that is just what he had. I have shared a few posts previously. If you click on the image or the title it will take you to the post. Below you will find the rest of the details from the party. If you would like any templates, please feel free to email me and I will gladly send them along.
I created this invitation for the party. I printed it on card stock and mailed it out with a single stamp. The top half of the photo shows the invitation and the second half is where I addressed each invite to the guests. I also printed our return address on the top left hand corner.
I saw this idea somewhere on Pinterest and loved it so much that I recreated it for the party and added my own twist. The fire hoses are simply red licorice and the fetch sticks are pretzel rods. The dog bones are explained below.
For the “doggy water,” I just added a bit of blue food coloring to the water and at my son’s request, a few strawberry flavored ice cubes.
I used my favorite homemade goldfish cracker recipe to make these “dog bones.”
A pinata was high on my son’s list for his party. I had two concerns with a pinata. One, they are so expensive and two I do not like sending all that candy home. To solve this problem, we made our own pinata from a box we had in our garage and instead of candy, we filled the pinata with Paw Patrol goodies and Matchbox cars. Problem solved. 🙂
For the goody bags, I bought white paper bags and printed the labels on sticker paper and attached one to each bag.
Each bag contained some Paw Patrol goodies I found at our local Dollar Store and at a local party store. I included the Paw Patrol Memory Game I created as well. The last addition was the dog bone gummies I bought online.
This game was a fun addition to our goody bags. We did the same for our Octonauts party a few years ago.
Fun and Games
Pin the Badge on Zuma
I enlarged and printed out this picture of Zuma and hung it on our door. I also copied and cut out several copies of Zuma’s badge. And then we played, Pin the Badge on Zuma.
Aside from the games we played, we also did some water play. I had the kids each make their own sponge koosh balls before jumping in the pool. I cut up the sponges and some string, showed the kids how to make them and set to work. They needed some help tying the string, but loved picking their own colors and playing with them.
Paw Patrol Badge Cake
To make the cake, I followed the steps laid out in our post, A Trashy Celebration, only this time cutting the cakes in the shape of a badge. To create the shape, I printed a badge image on a piece of paper, printed it out and cut around it like a template.
I then iced it with blue icing.
I then used another paper badge I enlarged and printed and cut out the paw shapes. I placed it on the cake and used a toothpick to trace the shapes.
Then, I filled in the shapes with white frosting and the cake was done!
Even our Pugs got in on the fun!
