The two to five set are so easy to please when it comes to birthday parties. They’re happy with a balloon on a string as a party favor – events don’t become so complicated until later in childhood. That’s why parents are often left scratching their heads with the older ones… "What on earth will we do for Leo’s 8th birthday party now the Thomas theme no longer cuts it?"
We have the answer! Amongst other activities, you can sit the team down to make these Flying Pig Paper Animation Kits. If you’ve already got a jam-packed schedule for the party, then give them out as a great value party favor. The kids will enjoy glueing the pre-cut pieces together and making their paper animation work – each model moves when the lever at the side is turned around.
My favourite is the robot but you can also get a cat, dog, cow and hand. They’re for kids aged eight and up and are just $4.95 each at Intelliplay. They’re perfect for those kids whose abilities are becoming more sophisticated.
