Octopus Hotdogs
These were way easier than they look. I got this idea from Pinterest. So many people have post this idea. I have no idea who is the original. So 3 Cheers to who thought of these cute little guys. They were perfect for our party. I made my octopus smaller. I like easy to grab and eat foods for our parties. Having lots of kids over, you never know how much they will eat. Here’s how to make them.

How to make Octopus Hotdogs
STEP 1
Cut hotdog in half

STEP 2
Cut the legs. Leave 1 inch uncut for the head.

STEP 3
Boil hot dogs

STEP 4
Serve on a blue ocean plate or place on top of mac and cheese.

Sparkling Ocean/Sea Punch

I love party punch. When I was younger every party had big huge punch bowl full of yumminess topped off with ice cream or sherbet. I would be hovering over the punch bowl every time. So, now that I am the one hosting, I like to include punch. Sorry I don’t measure.

Mix all the liquids together in punch bowl. Top with Ice cream.

WE TOOK PICTURES FROM SEA

11850620_10153839847372985_2669130758553150819_o

We set up a photo booth.

I hung this beautiful Pottery Barn Map on the wall and placed a Bench in front of it. Then I place a bowl of mustaches & a stack of photo booth props. I will say almost all of my parties have photo booth. We also hung up a Pottery Barn Pirate Photo Opp made out of canvas. It’s beautiful and fun. Plus, its like cheating for a photo opp. Hang it up and your done! The kids love taking silly pictures. Truthfully, so do the adults. It’s just fun to let go and act silly. We are like kids in this household.

WE DUELED WITH YE FATES IN YE PIRATE GAMES

Sneaky Cards

This game is unlike any game I have ever seen! This game gets you interactive with the world. Starting with what is around you.

Sneaky Cards
You buy your deck & you register your deck. Then you Play it forward… pun on Pay it forward. When playing a card you will be doing something Sneaky or Nice. You can watch a see where your cards end up! We are looking forward to see where they end up!

If you found one of our cards let us know!!!

So far we have played 3 cards forward. Only one has been tracked. Anyce’s is kinda bummed on this. She wants to see everyday if our cards get tracked. So, the downside to this game… not everyone who finds your cards will join in on the game. Fingers crossed after we play more cards. We see some people getting on and tracking them!

Pokemon Game Factory

This is adorable-ness overload! I will use this an a desk game or just leave it unboxed on my game shelf. The theme is what makes this game. The Pikachu’s are pretty hard to stack. So far the most I can stack without dropping any is 3. It’s fun to try it out different ways. Everyone who see’s it thinks its adorable. So if you are or know a Pokemon lover, this is a great gift! Chapstick in picture to help you compare the size.

Animal Upon Animal

Animal Upon Animal is a beautifully crafted game by HABA. All of the pieces included are high quality wooden pieces. You can play with 2-4 players ages 4 & up. The player who is able to get rid of their animals first wins. Please keep in mind it is a shaking game and pieces do fall down. Some 4 yr olds may get upset. This is a great tool to help them learn that things don’t have to be perfect and can fall down. You can also make house rules if needed.

IMG_9205

You will receive 29 animals and 1 die.

You will start the game off with a crocodile in the middle of the table. You will pick a 7 animals for your hand. You take turns rolling the die and taking the action the die gives you. Who ever gets rid of all of their animals first wins!

DOT: Stack any 1 of your animals onto the pyramid carefully with one hand.

TWO DOTS: Stack any 2 of your animals onto the pyramid carefully with one hand.

CROCODILE : Place any 1 of your animals next to the mouth or tail of the crocodile.

HAND: Choose any 1 of your animals and give it to another player. This player now has to place it onto the pyramid carefully with one hand.

THE QUESTION MARK: The other players choose which character you place onto the pyramid

IMG_9200

COLLAPSING RULES:

If 1 or 2 animals have fallen off, the player who knocked them off has to keep them.

If more than have fallen off, the player who knocked them off has to keep 2 & place the rest in the box.

If the pyramid has collapsed, the player who knocked it down has to put the crocodile back in the center of the table, keep 2 animals and place the rest into the box.

If animals fall off on their own place them back into the box.
