Yes, you heard me right. Pancakes and Samurai’s.
Let it simmer for a second.
Did it just hit you that my twins, who just turned 3, had a pure genius idea?! Well, actually that’s not exactly how it happened… I asked each of them what kind of party they wanted to have. Zander had decided months before that he wanted a Pancake party, which he declared after a breakfast feast of (you guessed it) pancakes. Cruz, who’s been obsessed with swords for like ever, said he wanted Samurai’s so he could get “lots of swords,” (my own worst personal nightmare).
Hence the Pancake Samurai Party was born and I think it was a huge success!
Combining their ideas was my little way of making each of my boys feel special. Even though, ‘cummon, sharing a birthday with your bff is seriously fabulous! I would love to do that every single year. Yes, I would.
What do you need for your own Pancake Samurai Birthday?
Definitely a big birthday banner!
Lots of INFLATABLE SWORDS! And tough samurai’s dressed in towel samurai robes, made by mom, of course!
Water balloons are
much, much a bit safer option. Love to see the parents beaning their kids = free therapy bonus!!
Ninja balloons. Um, duh.
And a ninja piñata to beat up. Samurai’s don’t like ninjas, so I’ve heard.
Pin the sword on the super pancake. Hey, the kids liked it.
I took this one from the ol sorority days… seriously you can pin something on anything. Am I right?! Such a versatile game.
And to eat? Well fancy pancakes, of course! Or crepes as the French Samurai’s call them. And boba. You’ve gotta have boba.
What more could a set of 3 years olds want?
I only got one complaint… that the swords were not “real” Samurai swords.
Can’t get anything passed these guys.
All in all, a great day! With some fun projects that I’d love to share with you!
Happy Creating and Celebrating! Jessica
