Once I knew the boys were going to love the fishing party, I had so many ideas of what to do at the party. I ended up only doing a couple. I would have loved to do all of them, but let's face it they are only 4. David wanted me to keep it to 2 activities. Without question I wanted them to actually fish. I mean, not really fish in the water but at least play fish. I made fun fishing poles out of wooden dowels, twine and magnets. For the fish I used scrapbook paper cut into fish shapes, laminated then and put a magnet in the middle. In my previous post here I mentioned it was going to be too windy to play outside. I moved all my furniture out and the boat came in. We placed all the fish around & to make it look a little more real we added rocks. All the kids really enjoyed fishing! We did a 2 team relay. Both teams caught the same number of fish, so that worked out perfect :)

After the fishing game, we did a quick clean up and moved on to the next game. Now, I remember playing the "pop the balloon" game at several of my parties and at Erin's parties. I wasn't necessarily fond of it, but the boys are at the stage where they LOVE to pop balloons. After encouragement from David, I decided that would be the other game we would play. Every time a balloon popped, I screamed. Every.single.time. Not my favorite game (the kiddos loved it though!).

After games it was time for cake & presents!
