Dora the Explorer Birthday Party


For my daughters 3rd birthday, she wanted a Dora party. She LOVES Dora. I started couple of month early, preparing and thinking of ideas. 

INVITATION:

            I made my own on the computer. I scanned a map from one of my daughter’s books. I used paint shop to change things. I added a clipart picture from the internet of a calendar showing the date and another clipart of a clock showing the time.  There were already a picture to a house full of balloons, I left it as it is. On the top, next to the map picture, I wrote: “If there is a place you want to go, I’ve got what you need to know. I’m the map, I’m the map, I’m the map. Anastasia is turning three. For details turn to me. I’m the map, I’m the map, I’m the map”. On the bottom, I put my daughter’s picture with Dora character, we took when we went to universal studio and wrote:  Come on vamanous, everybody, let’s go! Find your way to my fiesta! It will be fantastica! Map is here to show the way… to my birthday all the way. Then I printed it on Granite Cream color card stock.  I printed from nickjr.com, map’s eye borrows, eyes and month. Cut it and glued it at the back. I purchased a mailing tubes from eBay and rolled the map and put it inside and mailed it.

 

Decorations: 

we made the party in one of my father's in law RV parks(He owns 6) in the club hose. The place was not that pretty for a party but it was a lot of space. So i purchased the Dora scenery and some Dora table cloth and balloons. I also made big shaped stars, with different colors of poster board; put it on the floor, from the entrance door to the table. I gluedtiny stars inside Like the ones from Dora's show.
