Kung Fu Panda Party in the Works

My son Mica wants a Kung Fu Panda party. I created invites to it last night. He loves the out doors, so the party will be outside; where kids can run freely.


This is the image I based it off of:

A few weeks ago we met up in a park and Mica saw these poles sicking out of the ground. He plopped up on them and pulled a Karate Kid. Except he had his tongue hanging out. :P


That's part of what gave me the idea to create his invites that way.

Now I just need to have the party. 10 first graders and a 4 year old brother seemed a little much to me. Daddy works on the weekends. I decided to call for back-up. My niece that's in high school will be helping me on this one!

I got Panda treats at the Asian Market for party favors. Once I know who's coming I'll get Asian fans or coin purses for the girls and Karate Kid Spinning drums for the boys.

I thought I'd make a water balloon pinata.

water pinata! Great idea for Summer Party

Should I make PBJ Sushi Rolls or Rice Crispy Sushi Rolls? We're having cake to. I'll set out carrots and a fruit of some kind to. It's not for a meal, so I don't need a lot.


I thought it would be so funny if I could find fu manchu mustaches for all the kids to take pictures of them. I don't know if that's going to happen though.

Cool idea esp the fu manchu mustaches for all the kids. I liked that you included the link for snack ideas so others can check them out as well. I added to my pin board so I could look at it later and not lose it :) Thanks!

You are very talented/creative!

Actually, I think your mustaches would be very easy to make.

A length of nylon cord cut to size and the ends unraveled and brushed out would be all it would take. You could attach them with some double stick tape or small balls of costume wax.
