Doc Confetti 

To brighten up the tables and add more ‘Doc-related decor’, I’m going to create some Doc band-aid confetti. I am going to use some of the leftover brown construction paper for the band-aid and pink glitter and purple glitter scrapbook paper for the hearts.

From here its pretty easy. I will attach some of the hearts to the band-aid and some may be left separate.

Sprinkle them all over the food, gift, and dessert table.

Doc McStuffins Band-Aid Invites

After working on the banner, I wanted to start working on the invites. The date has already been locked down. Her actual birthday is the 10th but this year we will have the party on her late grandfather’s birthday, June 4th.

In keeping with the medical theme, I decided to make the invites look like a Band-Aid. Again, I used Photoshop and my Cricut to cut the template out. I used a similar design to the banner.

The invite consist of three parts. I made the middle a solid, squared off rectangle. For one side, I made the squared off rectangle a little smaller and cut holes to give a textured look to the Band-Aid.

On the other side, I will attach the invite info. This side will be sized the same as the textured side. I will used E6000 spray adhesive to attached everything.

Doc’s Birthday Banner

I know it’s early but with so many ideas floating around, I wanted to get started on the basics. Get ready to see and array of hand crafted and a madeby momofagem originals. Olivia is fast approaching three (where has time gone…) and I have decided on a theme… drumroll please….. DOC MCSTUFFINS!!!!!! Yay!!!!!!

It’s time to get down to business. This year I’m starting with one of the most common items; her birthday banner. After doing a little research, I decide to do a “band-aid” banner with light blue letters and a pink number. I plan to use my Cricut to make as many things as possible. I make all of my designs in Photoshop and upload the image within Cricut Design Space. Here are a few screen shots of the blank band-aid, letters, and number.

After uploading everything I played around with the sizes, length and width, and cut everything out. I used light brown construction paper from Ollie’s. I got 50 sheet for $1! Make sure to check them out for your crafting needs. My blue and pink also came from Ollie’s.

I made one band-aid for each letter, number, and one with a heart in between the words.

I will use some E6000 adhesive spray to apply the letters and number. Make sure to check back in June for the final display at the party!

Elmo Baseball Cap

If you want your party to be extra Sesame Street colorful, you can create a hat for the parents to wear; green, blue, or red. I chose to make Elmo. You can make these in bulk by buying lots of simple and cheap caps from a discount store such as Dollar Tree.

Using craft felt, cut out white circles for the eyes, black pupils and an oval for the nose, orange.

Now just glue them to the hat using your favorite Mod Podge.

Sesame Street Lollipops 

 

I wanted a display of suckers to act as a centerpiece and another favor. You need the following to complete this sweet treat.

I decided to keep the design simple. Print everything out, cut, and apply the images to the lollipop using Mod Podge.

As for the base to store the lollipop. You can use Styrofoam or the cubes for floral design. Place 3-4 side by side and glue together. I reused the ones from the Casino bash since they will be covered in paper.

Now using some of your party wrapping paper, wrap the cubes like any other gift. Now just stick your lollipops in and you’re done!!

Place the Nose on Elmo

I thought that this would be a cute and easy game for the little ones to play. Take your classic pin the tail on the donkey and rework it to fit your party them. In this case a Sesame Street character was appropriate. Take a form poster board, a Dollar Tree find or a leftover from parties past.

I used a random font in Word and just made them different colors. Print, laminate them, then cut them out.

This part might be a little tricky if drawing is not your strong suit. I found the picture below online and used Photoshop to remove the nose. If you have a friend or parent that can draw well, have them recreate the photo that you found, in the position you want.

Grab your red paint and fill everything in. Once its dry, add your letters to the top and bottom.

I used the nose from my party plate designs to have noses to tin on. Just add a little double sided tape to keep everything safe.

Depending on your local library, they may have a overhead projector. If so, you can use it to then trace your picture.

I plan to use Command strips to hang the board during the game.
