GO WILD KRATTS!
Here is it the blog post you have all been waiting and searching for! There is no Wild Kratts merchandise on the market (I know, I've looked) so what is one supposed to do when your child wants a Wild Kratts Birthday Party??? Well you do it yourself!
Creature Power Suits
Neither polar fleece nor T-shirt material will fray so just pin it on top and sew around the outside to hold them in place. The suits are held on by elastic straps that criss-cross across their backs. So they put them on like a shirt.
We played two games. To earn Creature Power badges.
Cheetah Tail Tag: Give each child a tail by tucking some ribbon or non stick plastic tape, found by caution tape in hardware stores, into the back of their pants. It needs to be someplace that it can easily be pulled off. All kids are "IT" in this game. Everyone tries to run around and pull off everyone's tails. Even if your tail is grabbed you can still keep playing and try to remove other's tails off.
Fun Cheetah Facts:Cheetahs can run really fast and you will have to run fast in this game. Cheetahs have long tails that fly behind them when they run. They use their tails for balance when they change directions.
Everyone ran, and ran and ran. Lots of giggles and running and cheering. Everyone ended up with a Cheetah Creature Power Badge
Creature Power Snack
Firefly Says: Yep you guessed it is pretty much Simon Says. Except you say "firefly says". Firefly says.... flap your wings, fly in a circle, flash your lights by blinking your hands.. jump high... touch your toes... etc.
If your fireflies do a good job they can earn their Firefly Creature Power Badge and our little fireflies also got their glow power with these battery operated glow sticks.
My son's favorite!! Chocolate Pizza!!! I posted about it before here. This time I just added a creature paw print with frosting and spelled Wild Kratts on it. You can't really see my letters with all that yummy goodness in the way. Who cares it tasted awesome, and looks so colorful. It was a lot easier to haul this into the zoo then a cake as well.
Super happy b-day boy!
Where were we??
These photos may give you a clue!
There are lots of creatures to discover at the Zoo!
Go Wild Kratts!
Disclaimer!!: I love that you are all excited about the Creature Power Suits, but I am not in the busness of making and selling them. Although I am flattered by your comments, I will not be making these for purchase for anyone.. I am not trying to be rude, I just don't have the time with three kiddos, to be sewing for others. The suits are super simple and if you know anyone who sews they will be able to make them for you, but that person cannot be me for any price.
