For an "arrival treat" we had cups of "Rainbow Dash Goldfish" by their "make your own pony" coloring sheet, a party hat, and a My Little Pony Bracelet. (Sidenote on part hat: The night before Macy's party she says "MOM! We forgot about PARTY HATS!"... luckily Dollar General has some ballon party hats that I stuck some stickers on :) Way to go for last minute party hats huh?)
Next we played a fun round of "Pin the tail on Twilight Sparkle". I opened up google images and Macy picked which pony to pin the tail on, Kyle set up the projector, and I traced and colored the pony.
We tried to play "Find the Pony" to kill some time, and it went okay for about 5 minutes. With 8 kids 4 and under they don't have a very long attention span.
My awesome Mom came up that morning of the party and saved the day by bringing a Pony pinata. At Walmart they only had HUGE pinatas, so I was going try and make one. Well, that was an epic fail. Grandma Carbonneau to the rescue! The kids were too cute with this pinata, after the candy fell all the little girls would run over, pick up one piece, run back and show their parents, and then run back to get another piece. It took a good 10 minutes for them to pick up all the candy.
The cake! I was lucky and found someone that would let me borrow a cupcake holder and I found all the cupcake toppers online. I just printed off, glued together, and -shabang- My Little Pony cupcakes!
I made these little Thank You take home bags for all the guests. Inside were My Little Pony stickers I found at Dollar General, flower bracelets, a candy necklace, and a pair of sunglasses (Macy insisted that we get them each a pair of sunglasses). I found the pink bags at Alco and I printed off the Thank You cards off pinterest. On the inside I wrote something along the lines of 'Thank you for coming to my party" and Macy signed her name.
I was super happy with the way everything came together, and Macy had a blast. For a good two weeks after her party she told everyone about it. I'm super excited for more parties to come!
