Birthday Party Bull Fighting

image

I had a difficult time coming up with games to go with Chiara’s Book of Life party theme. I rose to the challenge, even if it was last minute! In addition to Pin the Flower on La Muerta, I found a way to ‘bull fight’.
All you need for this game is 10-12 cups that can get banged around a bit, I had my spray painted Olive Garden cups from last year’s game Knock Down the Ice Palace and a ball.
I printed off 12 pictures of the bull from Book of Life (they look funny because I was running out of ink) and taped them to the cups, using my perpetual favorite, packing tape. I also printed a picture of Manolo and taped him to the ball. I had to add a few straight cuts so that I could make him lay flat on the ball. The cuts allow you to overlap pieces of the image and prevent bunching.

Stack the cups up however you or the kids would like and then……

Simple and entertaining. What more can you ask for a kids party?

Bowling for Stormtroopers

image

This was an easy to set up game and lots of fun for the kids. In the weeks leading up to the party, we started buying our soda in 2 liters instead of 12 – packs. Once we had 10 of them, we were all set.
I found the pictures of stormtroopers on Bing images. I printed them on whole sheets and then taped them to the bottles.
After setting them up in the bowling formation, we let the kids go nuts with your standard ball from Walmart.
The game got a little crazy with the 2 liters being completely empty. I think, playing this game in the future, we’ll weight them down with a little water in the bottom. They were just bouncing all over the place!
Bowl on, party people!
