First I made signs for the different stations around our yard using 4x6 photos I made in photoshop that I mounted on cardstock and stapled them to stakes around the yard at each station. A ducky pond, a sheep crossing sign (raisinettes sprinkled on the sidewalk), hay wagon rides, a petting zoo (stuffed animals on a blanket in the shade for the babies), a photo booth, clothes pin drop, and an egg hunt kept the kids plenty busy but didn't require much prep work on my end.
I got cupcakes toppers off of Amazon and stuck them in cupcakes from Costco (green frosting as grass for the cows & sheep and brown frosting for mud for the pigs & chickens).
Elsa blew out candles in a pie sampler instead of a cake. Yum!
You can never have enough sweets at a birthday party so we made some ice cream too.
We counteracted the sugar with a bunch of picnic fare.
We were still absorbing the idea that we still get to live where we have a huge yard. After living in a 200 acre regional park we weren't expecting anything close to that when we left.
We actually have MORE apple trees here than we did in the park.
This crew of cousins had so much fun!
Happy birthday my pig tailed THREE year old!!!!
