Hyrum decided that he would like a glow in the dark birthday party again and we had so much fun!!
The kids came and we had pizza for everyone to eat while waiting for everyone. The kids were also able to pick out whatever glow in the dark accessories they wanted.
We played the skittle game. Each person was given a cup and a straw. The person who's turn it was,
got to suck up as many skittles as they could with their straw and
transfer them to their cup. The next person in line was rolling the
dice and as soon as that person rolled a six it was their turn. The
kids loved it!
We also played the good, better and best game. A variety of treats were placed in the center of a circle. If a person rolls a six or a one they are able to take a candy from the center or they can steal from another person if they can remember what the person had.
The kids absolutely loved the flour game.Then we played the flour game which I played growing up. I used a bowl
to make a flour mold and flipped it over onto a pan. A starburst was
then placed on the top of the mound. Each person took a turn to cut a
piece of the flour away. If the starburst fell, the person who made it
fall had to use only their mouth to get the starburst out. The boys
thought that this game was awesome! We gave a prize to the boy who had the most cuts without knocking down all of the flour.
Next, Hyrum opened up presents from his friends. He was completely spoiled.
Then, we sang Happy Birthday to Hyrum and had glow in the dark cake and ice cream.
However, the activity that I think was the highlight of the night is
when we played the Sock Game, but with the Glow-in-the-dark balloons. The object of the game is to pick up all the balloons on your side of
blanket and throw them over to the other side. We set the timer and
at the end of the game, whoever has the most balloons on their sides
lose. We played this game a lot at the party and the kids LOVED it.
Overall, it was a crazy and fun party. Our house stunk like sweaty boys after the party, but it was worth it.
