Barnyard Themed Party

This is the Barn scene

I decided for my daughters 2nd birthday that we would have a barnyard themed birthday. I am a sinkge mom so I made alot of the decorations myself and had a blast.

We had the main party in our garage and I made it into a barn scene. I used white paper I had laying around the house and painted a barn scene on it with my daughtes paint I had and some spray paint. I then bought inexpensive white foam board and drew barn animals on them and painted them. I cut out the head of the animals and glued them onto my barn scene and it gave the kids a chance to stick their heads through and become part of the scene, it was super cute and the kids loved it. I borrowed hay from a local farmer and used that for under the scene to give it more of a farm feel and it was a way for the kids to sat or kneel on to put their heads in the cut outs. I also used hay bales in the back yard for extra seating with bandannas for more comfort. I borrow a animated horse from a friend and used that for decoration as well.

For the cake I made two one that was a pig and one a cow. Both were relatively easy for the first cakes that I ever made. I used a 9in round cake pan for the body, small pyrex bowl for the head and cupcakes for the ears and feet. I found this to be much less expensive than buying a cake. For the treat bags I bought white paper lunch sacks and used a black permanent marker and colored black spots to resemble a cow patten and filled it with small toys that I got realy cheap and small toys .com. All the toys were things related to farm animals such as farm bubbles, horse slinky, ect.

I also stuffed teh bags with john deer fruit snacks from the local grocery store. The kids had a great time with a pinata that I bought from ( cow pinata). I have a farmer in the family and also borrowed 2 goats and some bunnies that we set up in the back yard for the kids to play with. We had a traditional farmer meal of hambergers,hot dogs and then some creative snacks. Ants on a log (celery peanut butter and rasins), strawberry mice( strawberries witha licorce tail and choc chip eyes), Pig slop served in a planter that looked like a trough( dirt cake) and chicken feed (chex mix and candy corn).

Overall the party was a blast and best was that it ended up not being that expensive. So if your little ones like farm animals I would suggest going this route!
