What's the best way to celebrate a little boy that you wish you could whisk off to Neverland, so he'll stay small forever? A Peter Pan birthday party, of course! My little Will just turned four years old and for some reason FOUR seems so much bigger than THREE. Three is next to two, which is still nearly a baby ... but four ... four is next to five, which means school and growing up. He is my youngest and it definitely pulls on my heartstrings to watch him grow up so quickly! So a Neverland party it was, with pirates and Indians and just a little bit of pixie dust.
We invited all the Lost Boys and Girls to join us at the second star to the right, where everyone could grab a pirate bandana or a feather headband. Some kids showed up in their own pirate costumes, and one little friend came dressed as Peter Pan, complete with a hat signed by Peter himself (from Disneyland)! We played "Pin the Clock on the Croc," rubbed soap on our feet so our shadows wouldn't run away, sailed the Jolly Roger, walked the plank, and dug for hidden treasure.
We marched up to Indian Camp and fished for prizes at Mermaid Lagoon. Then we flew over London where Tinkerbell was waiting for us with cake and ice cream!
