My friend Christy recently threw a Swan Party for her daughter, who loved the swan boats at one of the parks in our town. This is a great example of taking something your child loves, and creating a party around it!
She did some really unique and fun things at this party, and we're sharing them with you now!
The party was held at a public park that has a lagoon with paddle boats. Most of the paddle boats look like swans (there are a few ducks in there too).
As a side note, if you have a paddle boat lake in your area that has duck paddle boats, you could do this same party idea, giving away rubber ducky party favors.
So, back to the party. The kids first went on paddleboat rides. Some had never been on a paddleboat before, so it was a new and fun experience for them.
Next, they went on a scavenger hunt in the area around the lagoon. I thought it would be helpful to share the scavenger hunt list, so here it is:
Walk around the lagoon and look for the following:
For a swan cake, Christy used a sheet cake and cut it into the shape of a swan. She decorated with white coconut to make it look "feathery". I think it is absolutely adorable, don't you?
After the scavenger hunt and cake, there was a great homemade swan pinata! It is in the photo below. Isn't it incredible?
The kids took home their pinata candy along with swan bookmarks and the little swan favor cups that you sometimes see at weddings. Now kids can use the swan cups at home to take little toys on swan boat rides in the bathtub, sink or pool!
This was a great kid party idea, and is a great example of taking a concept, such as the swan boats, and creating a whole theme party out of it.
