Pokemon birthday party for 6/7-year-olds seems like a trend. Every birthday party we have been to for a boy has been a Pokemon party.
My oldest son (Bradly) turns 7. I totally can’t believe how time has gone by so quickly. We have been through so much and I’m so proud of him. With that said, I’d like to share all of his Pokemon party with you.
If you read my last post, about the baby shower my sister threw for her stepdaughter, you would see that I got this decoration idea from her. So, I got clear orbees and put them in mason jars. We let them grow and placed the Pokemon characters inside the jar with water. I added some ribbon and placed them on the table.
The weekend before his party, I cut and created all of the decorations. I wanted to keep the cost down since we just moved into our new home. There isn’t anything you can’t do with construction paper and a little imagination.
I made the Pokemon banner with his name on it. I used a cheap happy birthday banner and cut out the letters to use as my stencil. Gluing the Pokemon ball together first and then adding the letters. I used a cheap red and white table cloth and black duct tape to create the Pokemon table cloth.
Using construction paper as well, to make the goodie bags. I found a pack of Pokemon party favors and also added some candy, Pokemon fruit snacks, a cup, a Pikachu hat, and a small pack of Pokemon cards.
The kids made their Pokeballs out of styrofoam mini balls, then they balanced them on spoons and had races. We played pin the Pokeball on the Pokemon. I made the toss game out a styrofoam board and the birthday boy helped me color the characters, I got online.
I crocheted the Pokeballs for this game. If you would like to get a set of 3, let me know through my Etsy shop >>HERE<< (I will give you a special deal)
They also played Gotta Catch Them All. They had to use a mini catapult to shoot their Pokeballs, they made in the fish bowls.
Some of the boys slept over and they had more Pokemon fun, like the silhouette painting and the Pokemon eggs. We all watched the Pikachu Detective movie to end the night. The boys had so much fun.
I CAN NOT believe I forgot to take pictures of all the food. I made Pokeball fruit and veggie tray, sandwiches, chips, and we had a big Pokeball cupcake. The kids had lots of fun. If you have any other ideas, please let me know. Have a great day! Love, Mary xoxo
