Welcome to the Land of Oz (wish my roof was green)
Here is the birthday girl. Isn't she cute! (it started raining at the end of the party)
First we made scarecrow's out of Terracotta pots.
They turned out so cute and the kids had a ton of fun making these cute little guys.
Then we went on a ruby slipper hunt,
I made these little slippers with clear plastic slippers, red acrylic paint, tacky glue and red glitter. We hid them in the backyard and told the kids to find the slippers before the witch did.
Then out came the Wicked Witch (so stinkin' fun). The kids all took off running. I had put a pail of water on a table and three of the girls grabbed it and soaked the witch.
Then we played pin the heart on the tin man. A friend had an actual Tin Man - so cool!
After that we had a scavenger/treasure hunt for the Diploma of Thinkology, the Tin Man's heart, the badge of courage and the Ruby Red Slippers to send "Dorothy" home (up to this point she had been wearing no shoes.)
"Think real hard and you will find the Scarecrow's diploma safely tucked inside. Often filled with air, I tend to go most anywhere. Round and round I go where I'll stop no one knows"
"Sometimes short sometimes tall I lurk above all things small. I'm green on top and brown below. The tin man's heart is mine to hold."
"If it's the badge of courage that you seek, you will have to reach in deep. I have no color and no taste. I stink a lot if I escape. I keep you cozy all through the night. Just make sure my lids on tight!"
"In a house made of pine, the Ruby Slippers you will find. It may be small but that's OK, no one sleeps there anyway."
Well there you have it - what we did on Saturday. I did have the Hubs dye our white horse green with lime kool-aide but towards the end of the party it poured, I mean Arizona Monsoon poured, and apparently washed his color off **sniff sniff** I was so sad but the kids, especially the OP, had a fantastic time anyway despite the horse so that is all that matters.
Stay tuned for the food and the cake!
