We chose a blue and green color scheme. I cut out letters and the 8 elements (color circle with logo: air, life, undead, earth, fire, water, magic & tech) to make the birthday banner. Thank God for an x-acto knife. I found plates, balloons and these Skylander portal Easter eggs. I added some gold chocolate coins for the table. Made water bottle wrappers with a "water" element Skylander.
This was a little more challenging to figure out. I bought some Megablok sets with Skylanders characters to use on the cake. I ended making a portal with a 6" cake pan and surrounded it with chocolate wafer rolls. Covered the top with silver sugar crystals. Piped the landscape and added the sheep and chompy figures. I made sheep cupcakes and placed them on green paper plates. I trimmed the edges to make it look more like grass.
I found these perfect Skylander bags and attached personalize tags. Filled it with snacks, skylander themed marker, stickers and puzzle.
How many gold coins can Wrecking Ball collect?
Place a pile of gold coins and jewels on table. Each person got three chances to collect as many coins with a sticky hand/grabber. If they caught a jewel they got an extra turn!
Help Trigger Happy defeat Kaos.
I attached an image of Kaos on plastic cups and found a ball gun at the dollar store. I loved how the kids went closer and closer with each shot to get better aim.
I had one excited boy that day. He gave me two thumbs up!
