chicken party…a cluckin’ good time

eliza's invite

eliza had a birthday party for the 1st graders in her class.  in honor of the work they do caring for the chickens at their school and our gift to her (13 fertilized bantam eggs/incubator), we had a chicken party.

{i found out that if you cut a paper lunch sack to size, it will go through your printer}

the bunting is made paper-doll style from paper lunch sacks too.  it unintentionally looks a lot like chicken beaks (thanks for noticing that, cristy!).

the chicken snacks:  chicken in a bisquit crackers (wow, those taste like noodle soup), puffed corn (since chickens eat corn too), potato sticks (known at this party as a haystack).

instead of pre-filled goody bags, they went on a hunt for the different items…bandanas, chick toys, bubblegum eggs, chocolate chicks, egg shaped chalk…
