Z’s Skylander’s 7th Birthday Party

Z’s 7th Birthday Party was all about Skylanders!

Last Christmas my children got Skylanders and the Portal of Power.  A video game featuring unique characters with elemental powers.  In order to play with the character you have to collect each one.  Brilliant idea on the manufacturers part by the way.  My boys love it and get to play a couple times a week.  Z’s favorite guy is Slam Bam who has ice powers.  So he requested a Skylander’s birthday party theme.  So I went to the party store and guess what?  No merchandise for Skylanders.  Okay….  so I got online and searched.  I found Amy’s Party Ideas which had great ideas and I copied it.  I got together with Christina from Makes and Cakes and ordered the Portal of Power Cake and Sheep Cupcakes.  She was great to work with and it turned out awesome.  We played games that represented restoring the elemental powers and my son was thrilled.  It was a huge success with parents and children alike thrilled to participate.  Best of all I was able to give my planning happy son the birthday party he wished for.  I love that by simplifying my life and focusing on my children we can create memories like this one.  Happy 7th birthday my wonderful boy!

      I’m a graphic designer so I used a standard image of the Skylanders graphic and modified it in Photoshop. There are people who will create these files for you. The link I have in the post does this. :D
