Bigfoot Birthday Party

We had a Bigfoot themed birthday party at the pool for my 8 year old and his 2 best friends this year.  It was a lot of fun!  Here are some of the things we did:

Bigfoot Crossing Sign - yellow poster board, thick black marker, printed Bigfoot clipart, black letters cut with Silhouette Cameo

Big Feet - brown foot cut with Silhouette Cameo stuck to white poster board & cut out - I did 12 of these (6 left & 6 right) that we placed as though Bigfoot had been walking through.  We also used one of the footprint left over cut outs as the template for the cake.

The favors were pool water blasters.  I wrapped the box in green paper and added a Bigfoot sign that said "We had a blast!  Thanks for coming!" using clipart & drifttype font.

Our friend designed this cool Bigfoot invitations for us!

I made these utensil holders with clean cans, glue, burlap, scrapbook paper, & raffia.

I made an "All About Bigfoot" fact sheet to educate our guests!  I got the facts online and just did this in Word with clipart and drifttype font.

Lastly, the highlight of the party was a Bigfoot sighting!!  The kids were so excited and loved it!  Bigfoot may or may not have acquired his accessories at depending if you believe or not. :)

It was a great party and the birthday boys had a blast!
