Your son is a few months away from turning five and you haven’t finalized plans for his first official “friend party.” What can you plan to insure that he and his friends never forget this birthday? Invite his favorite character, Thomas the Train!
If you are handy in the kitchen, you can impress everyone with a creative Thomas the Train cake. If baking’s not your strong suit, most large bakeries can make a cake for you. For the rest of the food, keep it simple. Kids are really only interested in the cake, aren’t they? And what about party favors? Instead of buying disposable party supplies, consider buying a brand new Thomas and Friends dinnerware set for each party guest. They can use them for food or just take them home to keep!
Keep things fun for everyone by keeping the kids busy and moving. Visit the Thomas and Friends website for a few great games and activities like a version of “Simon Says” featuring Sir Topham Hatt and, for older kids, a Thomas-themed game of Twenty Questions.
If you haven’t yet found the perfect gift, there are about a million Thomas toys to choose from. You might take this opportunity to add a few more train cars to his toy train set or go for something new with a Thomas and Friends Dieselworks Playset.
No matter what you plan for the party, your birthday boy and his guests are sure to have fun because one of their favorite characters will be there!
