There are three sizes to choose from. But first let's take a look inside to see the Dora party invitations, and all the other party accessories.
Dora Birthday Cake Ideas
Dora the Explorer birthday parties need a Dora Birthday Cake to go with your Dora birthday party supplies. Did you know you can make a Dora cake at home? It's easy to bake a cake, but now it's also easy to decorate that homemade cake. You don't have to take cake decorating courses to thrill your child with a cake...just use a cake topper kit. Cake toppers are plastic pieces that sit right on top of your homebaked, frosted cake. There are Dora candles that you can sit on top of your cake too. You will be surprised at how simple it is to create a cake that looks like a professional decorator made it. A cake topper is another way you can save some money when you are using a Dora theme. There is also a Dora cake pan you can try your decorating skills with.
Making your own cake is a huge kids party money saver! You can also find edible cake images that you just put right on top of your frosted cake or cupcakes. It's easy as can be and your family will be quite surprised at your talent!
Dora the Explorer birthday parties are supposed to be an adventure...are you brave enough to let each of your party guests decorate their own dora cupcake? It sounds like a lot of fun, doesn't it? You can use a couple different colored frostings, some sprinkles, plastic Dora cupcake rings or a Dora cupcake topper. You can even use Jungle Animals!
Dora Birthday Party Games
You will need a few Dora Birthday Party Games when you host a Dora theme party. Dora the Explorer birthday parties are famous for the wide variety of party games you can match up to this kids party theme. That's okay, there are always lots of fun game ideas when Dora is your theme.
The Dora pull string pinata is a favorite kids party game. It's also a safe kids party game, and that's most important. All you have to do is fill the pinata with some goodies. Then your ready to play the pinata game. Just blind fold your party guests, (or not) and let each guest pull a string on the pinata. One of those strings is the magic key that breaks the pinata open...now the kids get to reap the rewards you've hidden inside!
Dora is famous for being a young explorer, so have a Dora Explorer Hunt in your yard or in your party room. You can plan out a map for the kids and give them clues that lead to the hidden treasures. You can fill plastic eggs with Dora stickers and tattoos. The kids will be thrilled.
You can have a Sing-a-Long with Dora songs from her CD's or TV show. Play Musical Chairs with the Dora theme as the music. Musical Chairs is a classic party game that has been around for years, it was fun then and it is still fun today.
Dora Birthday Party Crafts
You can make a kids birthday craft kit of your own, or you can buy one online. There are plenty of them to be found at my favorite online craft kit supply store, Oriental Trading Company. These craft kits are fun and pretty inexpensive. You can help the kids make a Dora bracelet. Depending on the age of your party guests, of course, some kids might be too young for this one. You can buy a jewelry making kit at The Oriental Trading Company.
You can also make some jewelry out of pasta. You will need some elastic string and lots of different pasta shapes. You can paint the pasta or dye it...make sure you use safe coloring materials since it's going to be used by children. I'll bet you remember making your own macaroni jewelry not too long ago!
