My son C turned 7 this week, and wanted an Indiana Jones party.
It’s so funny how kids latch onto things—even without having ever seen the movies.
For party favors I made a SUPER easy satchel for all the kids, like the one Indiana wears in the movies. I just took a 21” x 10” piece of brown felt, and folded one end up so that there was a 6” flap left.
I found these cowboy hats at The Dollar Tree.
I thought they looked too much like cowboy hats (that’s weird) and decided to cut some of the hat off.
Then I looked at what I cut off and realized that it would make the perfect whip! Score! Two for one, baby!
And called it a whip!
For the invitations and the cupcake toppers, I used the Indiana Jones font, otherwise known as SF Fedora. I downloaded the font here, but there are many places that you can download from.
I made a very simple whip image using Scrapbook Factory Deluxe. Really, I feel silly offering it as a download because they aren’t anything all that great, but if it can help anyone, then you can download some generic invites here.
And some cupcake toppers that you can download here.
I did personalize them for my son’s party but if you are in a crunch, these might be a time saver for you. Just print the invites and the cupcake toppers onto cardstock.
A map for their placemats—I used one of the maps found on this website.
Instead of “Pin the Tail on the Donkey” we had the kids fly the plane to the dot on the map, blindfolded. We used this plane image. I just cut out the country shapes—I am no geography whiz, so be nice:).
We made binoculars out of toilet paper rolls.
I really love planning parties for my kids. We had a blast!!!
