Because Caillou Party Supplies are available online. And there are a lot of options for you to choose from. A great deal of party ideas and inventive games based on the theme are also available. Or you may apply or create your own ideas and games.
Selecting Caillou Party Supplies
You may select Basic Party Pack from our Caillou Birthday Party Supplies which includes all the stuff you need for 8 guests. Or you may go with the Deluxe Party Pack from our Caillou Kids Party Supplies that has much more items than the Caillou Basic Pack. The Caillou deluxe pack is also for 8 guests. If you need favor boxes as well, I would suggest you to choose the combination of Deluxe Party Pack & 8 Favor Boxes from our Caillou Kids Birthday Party Supplies as it would cost you much more if you purchase them separately. If you think that the number of guests may exceed 8 you should consider Caillou Party Pack Add-On as it contains extra items for the extra guests. You may order Caillou Party Favor Boxes separately as well.
If you decide to get pre-packaged Caillou Party Supplies, decorations are the part of the package. You’ll get a blue table cover and blue, yellow and red curling ribbons and streamers. The balloons included are red, blue and yellow with white stars. But you may want to build your pack a-la-carte. Or you may find the packaged decorations insufficient. Then you may want to get the decorations yourself. The decorations can be as basic or as complicated as you wish. Just remember to use yellow, blue and red colors. The reason: because these primary colors compliment with the party theme.
A piñata with fillers, buster and blindfold is included in the Caillou pre-packaged ultimate party pack. But if you’re collecting the Caillou party supplies separately, just remember to throw in some official Caillou products to the decorations, like, pinnate. Giant wall decals are also available online. You may also arrange for a DVD of a Caillou episode running in the background as the little guests arrive to the party venue. Or, this idea can be implemented just after the lunch. Or watching a Caillou episode that they haven’t seen before while gulping snacks in the cute Caillou Party Supplies, the kids are going to surely enjoy themselves.
Caillou Party Games
Next come the party games. Boys mainly prefer physical activities. So, make sure that the games you decide for the party are imaginative, active and creative. The games can be as basic as pin the tail on the donkey. Or an activity where they may use their imagination, like decorating a place-mat station. You can include the birthday boy while deciding on the games for the party. Whatever the games, the kids should have fun and enjoy themselves.
Another idea would be to ask all the little guests to come dressed up in stupid costumes. They could wear oversized hats, overalls, striped shirts and big boots. This looks like a silly idea, but kids love laughing with their friends. If you can arrange for a relay race in this costume, the kids will surely enjoy this game. In the end, give the kids free time to use their imaginativeness to run, play, jump, shout, laugh and explore on their own.
Lastly, the food. But food is one of the most important thing to consider for the birthday party. And the most important part of the food is the cake. When the birthday party theme is Caillou and you’ve arranged the entire show using Caillou Party Supplies, the cake should also be complementing to the theme. If you’ve ordered the cake from some bakery shop, a picture of Caillou on the cake can be arranged very easily. If you’re going to bake the cake yourself, no worries. Caillou Party Supplies have cake toppers that can be used to enhance the look of the cake.
Rest of the food may include some basic items, like, grilled cheese sandwiches and vegetables. In one of the episodes, Caillou is a chef. So, a good idea would be to arrange a ‘create your own pizza’ station. Kids like activities and instant gratification. They would love to take part in making the pizza themselves. Pizzas are easy to create. Just arrange pre-made pizza bases and sliced cheese and pepperoni. Throw in tomatoes, mushrooms, green peppers and other favorite vegetables. The pizzas take around 15-20 minutes to be ready. Once the food is ready, Caillou Party Supplies would come in handy. Because they include dinner as well as dessert plates. Soft drinks or juice, server in Caillou themed paper cups, would be the icing on the cake.
Caillou is all about fun, imagination and curiosity. If you’ll try to integrate this into the birthday party, the party would be a great success. You may order Caillou Party Supplies online. This way, you don’t have to visit various stores to collect and color-match the supplies. The time saved could be used to plan a great party. We hope that these ideas would help you to make your party a genuinely extraordinary and enjoyable event.
