Skylander Birthday

Jaxon had a epic skylanders birthday party this last weekend. He has been talking about this day since DAY 1 after his Star Wars party last year. This boy is his mother's son when it comes to parties. I think I created a monster because he told me down to exact details of how he wanted his cake. I may have over ruled him on a few ideas, but in the end he won with having BOTH face painting and a swimming party. Mixing the two was a task, but nothing was as hard as keeping fourteen active 5 year olds entertained and safe. 

For his party we swam for an hour then played the Skylanders Trap Team game while some kids chose to get their face painted.  Basically it was a bunch of wet kids on my couch playing a video game (ahhhhh). We then ended with punch balloons, cake, presents and the candy station. 

Vendor credits are at the end of the post but I have to say a BIG thank you to Instabirthday. I am not big into license character type parties so i went with a color scheme and thank goodness for Instabirthday for the printables to tie in the skylander theme so Jaxon was happy.  This Etsy shop has a TON of printables from legos to paw patrols. It has alot of licensed characters that can be added to any party like I did. 

Here is the party in pictures.... enjoy!!!

My camera was doing something weird so I am just uploading a couple different pics of the main table display.

Back drop was a tri-fold poster from target covered in wrapping paper from Home Goods.
