Noah is nearly 2! His birthday is tomorrow so the kids and I spent the afternoon putting together a special circus themed party table with an under table den for him.
We all helped out. I made the cake a couple of days ago and we used what we already had in the craft box to glue, stick, cut out and paint till we were happy, we even had Noah’s approval.
All that’s left to do now is laden it with scrummy party food, turn the music up, open presents and eat cake!
We’ve got lots more birthday ideas!
Here’s how we did it…
We started by putting a piece of material on the table securing it with tape, our material was a fleecy blanket from ikea for a few pound.. I then marked up the bars with a pen ready to cut out.
We pinned some wallpaper to the wall that would be the canvas for our circus scene.
Eden set about making the bunting by using sticky tape to attach coloured triangles to a length of wool (because we didn’t have string).
Everybody helped draw and colour our ringside circus scene.
The backdrop turned out well..
I made a circus parade sign for our circus cage.
Noah tested out the under table den..
We used water balloons to fill a basket and stick to the walls, we found that once blown up if we rubbed them on our hands it created enough friction to keep them stuck to the wall.
We filled a truck with sweeties.
And wrapped some presents.
Everyone did a fab job!!
