Our party was a mom and kids casual lunch party. I prepared all the food in easy to pass out cups. Lemonade, white mac and cheese, grapes, and mini crackers and pretzels (perfect three year old portions in Dixie cups covered in streamers) for the kids and a bowtie pasta Caesar salad for the moms.. We used camouflage prints and a green and brown theme.
We set up our dollhouse (I have all boys, we call it a "wooden structure" here because it is normally not a house usually a museum or some other building) with frog and toad and used some rocks, fabric, fake plants to make this little diorama. We had a frog and toad birthday mural for the kids to draw on as everyone arrived.
We played a cookie relay game. You could use real cookies I used laminated ones from my days as a teacher. We did a reading from the books. The kids sat on cushions "lily pads and logs". We also played a button game similar to duck duck goose- when toad's "white, four holed, round, thick button" gets dropped behind you get up and run. We had another button relay to put the buttons on toads coat but I scrapped it to tend to my 5 mo old crying baby.
We served up frog and toad cake (here is a link to the green frog cake recipe and tutorial) and mini cones! (Tip: If you set them in a mini muffin tin they are easier to prepare and transport!)
For favors we did green bath foam and manilla drawing paper tablets with frog and toad salvaged images.
We love books in our family and children's book themed party was the perfect thing for my 3 year old!
