Do your kids love Disney Infinity?
My son, Gavin, is a HUGE Disney Infinity fan. I have to admit that I enjoy playing the game with him, although with my lack of good gaming skills I just hold him back! One of the things that I really like about the game is the creative side known as the “Toy Box” mode. Seeing Gavin create a world of his own is a pretty cool experience. It’s amazing to watch his six-year-old mind inventing before my eyes.
As you could probably guess, when I asked what kind of party theme he would like to have for his upcoming birthday, Gavin instantly said, “Disney Infinity!” Unfortunately it’s not an easy task to be able to set up enough game systems for his entire class to play together. So another theme was chosen for the party that he’ll invite his classmates to attend. And in addition we will have a small party on the day of his birthday with his grandparents where he can challenge them to an afternoon of Disney Infinity game play.
Even though it will be a small gathering, I still want the afternoon to have a festive feel so of course I’ve started to look for Disney Infinity party supplies. If you’re trying to find them too, let me save you some time and tell you, I can’t find a thing created by Disney! So I’ve started making my own and thought I’d share how with you.
First, let me start by telling you that the images that I’m using are the property of Disney. I am using them solely for the purpose of decorating my son’s party. I don’t sell the party supplies, but I will tell you how I made them, so you could do the same for your child’s party too.
So here’s what I worked on last night…
The card on the bottom of the above photo came as part of the original game set. What’s super cool about this card is that it can be easily used for so many different decorating ideas. The bottom of the card has an open area that is perfect to use for personalization. All you have to do is scan it into your computer, insert the picture into Publisher, add a text box and then you can add your child’s name, or whatever birthday message that you’d like! The font I used is called Captain America and I used the eye dropper tool on Mr. Incredible’s shirt to get the right color match for the font. Then I hole punched the personalized cards and laced ribbon through them. I plan on using red ribbon, not the green featured in the photo. Once the cupcakes are made, I’ll attach each end of the RED ribbon to red and white straws and insert them into cupcakes.
Every Infinity character comes with a card like the one in the top right corner of the photo above . I’m in the process of scanning each card into my computer and resizing them for a party garland. It a simple, yet perfect way to add a touch of Infinity to our little gathering.
These are two of the ideas that I worked on last night and I’ll share more as I continue to work on Gavin’s two different parties. Did you notice on Facebook what Gavin’s other party theme is? And I also have a little princess turning three years old soon too. YAY- Parties!!!
