In the coolest-mom-ever category, I present to you Marita of Stuff with Thing. For her daughter’s 9th birthday, she threw a Blanket Fort Birthday Party. In addition to party activity stations, party-goers got to assist in the creation of a massive blanket fort, complete with disco ball! It sounds like they rented out a hall for the party, allowing plenty of room for fort expansion, plus an impromptu track for cardboard box race cars!
How’s this for low-cost birthday party planning – provide tables, chairs, cardboard boxes and blankets that you probably already have and let the kids go at it. Kudos to Marita for encouraging kids to pool their brain power in a creative way that also acted as an activity for the party.
Additional hat tip to the Minecraft references at the beverage table and birthday girl attire.
What was your favorite birthday party theme or activity as a kid?
