Palmer's Camping 4th Birthday Party

My little guy is 4 years old! I can't believe it - but sort of happy since 4 has got to be better than 3 1/2! To celebrate we had a birthday party at our house with a lot of kids and adults! Hot dogs, beans, mac and cheese, and cupcakes were on the menu - kid friendly fare! In our basement we created a 'tent' out of a mosquito net and Christmas lights with some LED balloons I found on Amazon. Each kid was given a flashlight and the freedom to have fun in our basement! It was a crazy but successful party! Below are the details on everything with links to make or buy what I used to make our 'camping' party a reality.

"Camp Palmer" made on a banner from Target with white crayon, tassel banner made with tissue paper with this DIY, gold "4" balloon from Amazon

My Aunt sent the cutest cookies for the party - they were a big hit!

 Made "eating," "camping," "hiking" signs out of construction paper

Made a campfire out of construction paper with "marshmallow" names

 S'mores in a cup: graham crackers, mini marshmallows and Hershey's chocolate

Campfire Cupcakes! Melted candy instructions here, toothpick with marshmallows and pretzel stick "logs"

 Mosquito net "tent," Christmas lights, felt banner, LED balloons

 Happy 4th Birthday, Palmer! 

Party Kids!
