In our house 5 is the first ‘party, party’ birthday where friends can come.
Flip chose a Penguin Party because he loves penguins.
For ease of making I went with a cake of penguin cupcakes.
The food was a DIY affair with Arctic waters (blue and green jelly) surrounding an Iceberg (vanilla ice-cream) topped with penguins (from the penguin waffle maker). Then the penguin party-goers could decorate it with other toppings.
We played blu-tac the beak on the penguin.
Penguin fishing – The Atlas invented this one – the ‘penguin’ has 10 secs to catch as many fish as possible from the icy ‘sea’.
and penguin chalk drawings and face painting.
Oh and some pass the parcel because really what is a party without pass the parcel?
For prizes we had chocolate fish.
I think I get 10 points for no fuss, low-cost party..Don’t you think?
First time working with fondant icing too. Couldn’t have done it without 2 Aunties and Ma.
