Two of my little men’s birthdays are just a couple weeks apart so we always do a joint party.
This year they were all about a Skate Party.
Invitations were sent out with instructions to bring roller blades, a skateboard, scooter, bike or all four
Taking some inspiration from Pinterest we made these boards for less than $10.00 and in under an hour!
I liked them so much I’m thinking about making one for each little man for above their bed.
I searched high and low for containers that I could use as individual lunch boxes for each boy.
I finally sourced some but I’d have to purchase them in bulk at 500 for $40.00. No thanks.
So I made my own out of poster board.
Each box was lined with a napkin then a hot dog, bag of chips, chocolate milk and a sleeve of carrots and celery.
They were a hit (well maybe not the veggies…oh well, I tried).
So get this…for two hours we were able to rent out the whole skate park for less than the cost of a pizza/arcade place or one of those jumpy/bouncy/pump it up places.
I know, right!?
We did, however, have to act as our own bouncers and tell skaters the park was closed until 2pm for a private party. You want to see some colorful language, tell a skater they can’t skate for 45 more minutes.
These boys could talk some big talk until you get them at the top of the tallest hill trying to convince someone else to go down first.
The boys showed off their best tricks.
I’ll be honest, I was really nervous about someone getting hurt.
It’s a whole other story when you all the suddenly become responsible for the safety of 24 boys.
To my surprise no one got hurt!
Then came time for the pinata.
Let’s blindfold a kid, give him a metal bat,
get him dizzy and let him go swinging out of control while dozens of kids sit near by.
The real danger of the day wasn’t boys going down steep hills on wheels, it was the pinata.
Happy Birthday my little men!
