Two months ago my oldest son turned 9- I can hardly believe how fast time flies!
To celebrate his 9th birthday, he asked if he could have a Halo party, even though that game is rated M and he isn’t allowed to play it. As long as he wasn’t planning to gather a bunch of his friends and sit in front of the XBox, I agreed and the plans were set in motion. Here are the details of the event:
Type in “Halo 3″ on Google Images and your son will have tons of images to choose from. My son chose an image and I found the Halo font on dafont.com. I simply added the text over the top of the image, printed them at Walgreens and we called it good!
These were a hit with the boys! I featured the entire tutorial for these Army cupcakes here, along with a frosted variation.
Since this party was in the evening, we decided to play Capture the Flag. We went to the park, split the boys into 2 teams and used glow sticks for the flags. Other than the minor injury from one boy hitting his chin on another boy’s forehead, it was a lot of fun!
Easy tutorial for these simple party favors here, along with free downloads in several varieties so you can use them for any party theme.
This party was such a simple one to plan, and my son and his friends had a blast!
