Hello and welcome to the Kids Teepee Tent blog, all things Moozle Teepee and a little bit more besides. I am continuing with the foxy theme of the last post as we celebrated Dexies birthday with a Fox themed party…The kids were so obliging when I requested a quick (you have to be speedy with these guys…they don’t stay still for more than 3 seconds) pic with their masks on, they arranged themselves and posed like super models!
The teepee is the BIG Moozle teepee, you can find it here.
My kiddos and I prepared for the treasure hunt earlier in the week, we printed out some animal drawings we found on Pinterest, Dex wrote numbers 1 to 10, cut them out and stuck them onto each animal card, Dolly and I came up with clues for each animal (things like: I live in the wild but I can also be a pet, I have long ears and a twitchy nose…what am I?…). Half an hour before the party began Doll and I went around the trail we’d found and placed the cards in sequence with little toadstool printouts as clues for direction at a fork in the path…it was teamwork for sure and Dex was a trooper not shouting out any of the answers.
I thought the mainly 7 year olds would find the game a bit young for them…but they really had fun and were happy with the treasure they found buried under leaves in a natural ‘den’ under a tree. We were so lucky with the weather, a perfect warm Autumn day.
Everyone who knows our boy knows he has some kind of fox thing going on, he is always drawing foxes and woodland scenes in general, as a little birthday present we had one of his drawings printed onto a tee-shirt for him…he loves it. We used a company based here in Holland called SpreadShirt, great quality tees and super nice print quality..check them out here. We selected this one to get the colour we wanted, but they also have a small bio cotton range.
You don’t need to have a fancy birthday party with lots of expensive activities and goodie bags, simple things, nature and a bit of imagination goes a long way to creating happy memories and showing our children that is all they need. x
