our son, max turned ten years old in november. we threw him a "dangerous party for boys" based on the dangerous book for boys. here's the invitation by rachel of pencil shavings. she did such a great job!
all the food was based on different chapters in the book. there was a chess cake made by my dear friend andrea, fossil cookies and crickette and larvet cupcakes. the kids loved challenging each other to eat the crickettes and larvettes!
the chess pieces were made from white and dark chocolate
all the activities were also taken from the book
paper water bomb (it actually holds water!)
sticks for bows
learning how to juggle
learning the rules of poker
my favorite part was my husband's presentation on "advice on girls"
taken directly from the book (not based on his own experiences!)
they all high-fived when my husband suggested that they stay away from
girls until they were 30!
we made them eat "dangerous" food based on some of the
seven modern wonders of the world
all the boys received a box of "essential gear for dangerous boys" (compass, flashlight, pencil, paper, marble, fish hook, fishing line,
needle and thread, bandaid, magnifying glass, bandana)
