I was looking through old pictures and came across Kaleb’s 8th Birthday party. Kaleb is a HUGE kickball fan. He loves playing at church, school and anytime he can convince his sisters to play in the back yard. It is a simple game, and really easy for kids to learn and join in on.
Kaleb really wanted a sleep over party. He had been asking for one for a while, but I held off til his 8th birthday. My in-laws owned the perfect house for boy sleepover, and they were more than happy to let lend it to us for a night. Not only was the house on a lake, and had a great playing field, but the house was completely empty(no furniture) and it had a theater in the basement. Perfect!
All the parents dropped the kids off at our house and we drove 2 mini vans of excited kiddos 45 mins to the lake house. The vans we packed out with all the kids sleeping gear. I wish I took pictures of our voyage, but I was not blogging at the time.
Upon arrival, the kids received a kickball shirt in their team color. I found cheap shirts at a craft store, made a cute kickball stencil and painted them with black fabric paint. It took a bit of time, but the kids loved them!
Kaleb thought the kickball game was the “best ever”. Love that!
The personalized water bottles were a hit.
Since the house had no furniture, it was the perfect place for a Nerf Gun fight. Each of the kids brought their own gun and we supplied the bullets. It was a crazy war zone, and the boys loved every minute of it.
There were bullets everywhere!
The kids loved the theater, and ended up sleeping here as well. I had a bunch of cute blue and green themed snacks for them to munch on during the show.
Each of the kids brought home a medal, their kickball shirt and these cute little kickball gumballs. The party was a huge success.
