This year is a Leap Year, with February having an extra day in the lunar calendar. For anyone born on February 29th, this is an extra-special birthday because the actual day only comes once every 4 years!
An extra-special day deserves an extra-special birthday celebration and at Astro Jump of Chattanooga, we can help you plan that extra special event! We have years of party planning experience and will help you turn your birthday party into an extraordinary occasion.
First, why not plan a sleepover birthday party? Many kids enjoy going to sleepovers, so having friends spend the night will be a great way to celebrate this rare birthday occasion. Your child can invite his or her closest friends for a night of food, fun and festivities.
The universal theme for Leap Year is green frogs because they "leap". This theme can create a magical party area with fun decorations and vibrant colors. If planning a sleepover, why not set up sleeping bags in a "frog pond". By putting blue foam mats around the sleeping area, you can easily create a pond area. Use white, ivory or cream mats to create lily pads for the sleeping areas. Add to the pond with frogs sounds that can be downloaded on the computer. The kids will love it.
A pond isn't complete without frogs. Supply green or frog-patterned pajamas for each guest. Not only will they add to the liveliness of the occasion but they are also a great take home gift for each child.
There are many great games you can plan with the kids. Leap frog, pond mazes, treasure hunts, and frog-making crafts are just a few of the exciting activities that will keep the kids busy and having fun.
At Astro Jump of Chattanooga, we have many rental units to keep the kids active. Our bounce houses and bounce combos will keep your little frogs leaping in the safety of an inflatable funhouse while the adults can watch from the sidelines through the mesh windows on the sides of the units. Our party games like Tic-Tac-Toe, Can Smash and Pin The Tail On The Donkey are classic party games that are always popular at birthdays. Our Spin Art is a fan favorite at kids parties. With a little paint, paper and color-coordinating curiosity, kids can create their own unique masterpieces.
Frog-shaped sandwiches, lily pad pancakes or crepes, green colored "pond" juice, green vegetables and dip, cut out frog-shaped watermelon, fruit kabobs and frog-shaped cheese chunks with crackers are just some of the delicious menu options that you can serve. Of course, let's not forget the frog-shaped cake or cupcakes for dessert. Green and white candles are the perfect topper to blow out.
Once the kids have finished playing and eating, finish the night with a movie and popcorn. "The Princess and the Frog", "F.R.O.7." and "Frog Kingdom" are just a few frog movies that would be great to watch at a Leap Year party. At Astro Jump of Chattanooga, we have popcorn, cotton candy and sno cone concession machines that are ready to serve up great snacks.
