Children love watching the Peppa Pig Series.
Peppa Pig is a relatively new series aimed at young children with each episode lasting only five minutes.
My grandson wanted to invite Peppa Pig to his 3rd birthday party, and it was a lot of fun. Here is some of the preparations and craft activities we did for the occasion.
If you’re planning a Peppa Pig party and wanting to include games, then try some of these fun Peppa Pig games that are certain to entertain young children.
We made our own invitations and our 3 year old joined in and helped with coloring, painting and glue-ing. He loves moving eyes, so we made sure we had some on every invitation. He had lots of fun making them, and so did we.
This is our beautiful birthday cake of Peppa Pig.
It was a marble cake with the decoration extending beyond the cake and covering the board as well. We put it in the middle of the food table, and it looked fantastic.
We made a backdrop, painting it blue and green, and added the sun. A great craft activity to include our almost 3 year old as well. It looked great behind the food table.
My grandson loves fruit and we included a variety of fresh fruit. We used a small star shaped cutter to make lots of watermelon stars. The kids loved eating the watermelon stars.
We made fruit kebabs. These were a little time consuming, but they did look fantastic and well worth the effort. Both the watermelon stars and the fruit kebabs looked best when served on white plates.
We also made star-shaped sprinkle sandwiches. A large star shaped cutter was used. They were super simple to make, they looked fantastic and they passed the test…. the kids loved them.
Did I mention that my grandson loves fruit? Well, we also included little fruit baskets. These baskets looked great on the table and the children kept going back for more. Who says that children have to eat a lot of sugar at birthday parties!
The coconuts were a beautiful addition. We bought 12 of them, cut off the top, added a straw and an umberella and put them on the table. These were enjoyed by both children and adults.
DRINKS ON ICE. A few days before the party, we filled some brightly colored balloons with water and put them in the freezer. On the day of the party we put the drinks in an open esky and added the ice balloons, to help keep the drinks cold. Next time I will make some smaller ones as well. The bright colours looked great in the esky!
BALLOONS. I love balloons, and we had plenty of them, adding lots of color.
Here are three of the best Peppa Pig dvd’s on Amazon: Muddy Puddles, My Birthday Party and The Balloon Ride. Each of them would make a fantastic present for a 2 or 3 year old.
