Backyardigans Party Invitaions
You can always buy ready-made themed invites but you can always opt to get your creative juices flowing and craft your own invitations.
One idea is to make an invites based on your child’s favorite Backyardigan character. Print out copies of your child’s Backyardigans character. You can either print it in color or in outline form. If the print is in outline form, have your kid color the character first before cutting it out. Paste the cutout Backyardigans character on the front of a folded poster board. Write something like “Come to my Backyardigans Party!” and then write on the inside fold the details of the party.
A novel idea is to design a postcard with a Backyardigan backdrop. Your one year old’s photo is then integrated in the postcard including the party details. Have the design reproduced using gloss photo paper.
Hang posters and pictures of the Backyardigans group. Cut moose or penguin footprints and arrange them on the walkway from the entrance leading to the party area. You could make it more interesting by adding the sign print “follow Tyrone’s (or Pablo’s) trail.”
Use solid colored balloons in orange, yellow, purple, pink and blue. Add Mylar balloons of the Backyardigans group. Backyardigans plush toys could add points of interest on the buffet table. You can add character standees of each of the Backyardigans character. Instead of buying standees you can just paste pictures of each of the Backyardigans onto a cardboard and prop them up with wooden sticks.
Backyardigans Party Activities

Hide some goodies in the party area before guests arrive and set up a Backyardigans Treasure Hunt. Try not to hide the items too tight so younger kids can find them. You can offer help by putting lead arrows to help the kids locate the treasures.
