Pokémon Birthday Party
Pokémon is all the rage in the grade 3 class this year. So our birthday theme was pretty easy to pick. My son chose to have a party at home, so I set about figuring out how to keep ten boys entertained.

The invitations were a direct copy of one of my son’s best Pokémon cards. I scanned it in, cloned out areas so I could put the party information.
For the Pokémon Bingo, I found all of the images online, and purchased bingo chips at Dollarama.
Pokémon Scavenger Hunt
For the Scavenger Hunt, I purchased ping pong balls at the Dollar Tree, taped them off and placed them in egg cartons to be sprayed (spray paint the dollar store). After they had dried I untaped and wrapped with electrical tape which I had cut into thin strips.
The badges I made at The Workroom. They rent their button machine by the hour. If a child won a game they could choose a badge, and once you had collected all 8 badges you received a prize.
I purchased clear plastic Christmas ornaments at Michaels. I sprayed one half (inside of ball) with red spray paint and the other half I painted a few coats of white acrylic paint (which I had on hand). Once dry I inserted a few key loot bag items, closed up the ball and sealed with a strip of electrical tape. I used my Fiskars cutters to make the circles and double sided taped them onto the balls.
Pokémon Rice Krispies Cake
I made two batches of Rice Krispies. On one batch I used some of my Wilton’s red colouring to die the Rice Krispies. I then flattened each batch into different mixing bowls. Allow to cool then assemble both halves together hiding the seam with the fondant. Voila, another non cake, cake!
