As those of you who know me and have followed for sometime know I go a little nutty with my themes! Hey what can I say I love to have a theme to run with (ok I don't litteraly run I'm still in the walk stage in life but for other things I take it and go with it). I just love having a fun party that my kids and hopefully the kids that attend will remember. So early we did the Lego party for Cole, this upcoming week is Caden's 5th birthday. The theme he picked out is Sharks! You would think sharks would be easy, but trying to find silicone molds has been on the impossible side. So I'm probably not able to do the crayons I was wanting to do but I can make some candies, the cake, fun things to snack on and of course I can make invites!
I of course went to my resource Pinterest to see what I could locate. I found a site that had super cute shark invites, her friend designed them so there were no instructions on how to make them. So I printed a photo and made my own mark up of how to do it. I took my template I made and using my awesome 3 in 1 printer photo copied it right on to my paper. That way I could print them and then cut them and then glue everything together until my fingers stuck together!
I took my template and put into a google documents so if any of you want to make it you can go HERE for Head and Bottom and HERE for mouth and print out like I did!
What you Need:
Grey Card Stock (for shark head & body)
Red Card Stock (for mouth)
White Card Stock (Teeth & for the invite that has the info on it)
Blue Card Stock (for the invite that has date, time etc on it)
Scissors / Also the E-Acto zig zag scissors for the teeth marks
Black Sharpie (Inside of mouth and eye brows)
For the shark print the template cut out the bottom half gets teeth and the red attached. I also wrote inside "Caden's 5th Birthday - Come or be Shark Bait". Fold the red in half glue on teeth and the top of the shark head. I'm including a picture below click on it to enlarge and you can see the step by step. I also made up and insert using word, clip art shark with the info for the party. If you would like this msg me and I'll email it to you. When I tried to save in google docs it kept moving everything around.
There you have it we begin the shark domination at my house!
