The Polar Party

Our house turned into a Polar Wonderland today.
A Polar Wonderland that for two magical hours, became a Polar Playground for 15 Polar Bear Cubs.

There was painting and dancing and music making...
Much eating and drinking...
Lots of laughing...
Plenty of love...
And that was just the Mummy Bears.

The Cubs went chocolate frog fishing, paint walking and pony riding...
They passed many parcels and pinned many tails...
Hats were made, then worn...
Cup cakes were iced, then eaten...
The sound of party blowers filled the air...

And the Polar Present Surprise was unveiled:

Miss V's birthday treasures, suspended in a block of Polar Ice!

Nanuk led us on a treasure hunt.
We followed his clues through creeks...
Around corners...
In and out of trees...
Over hay bales...
Under icicles...
Into igloos...
And up snowy mountains...

'Till finally, we found our Polar Prize.
The cake:


Pip and Ray made a guest appearance...
Treasure was hunted and stashed in party bags...
Then the ice started melting...
And it was home time for the visiting cubs.

More on the Polar Present tomorrow...
But for now...


Shhhhh!


Birthday Cub is sleeping!

What a fantastic idea to freeze treasures into ice like that. Looks like it was an amazing party for your little one.

BB - We like kewl and unusual! :)

Melody - It was lucky we spotted her - She was asleep in the costume tub!

PQ - It was a great party. I must remember to supply gloves next time we have a polar present - All those hands rubbing cold ice! Brrrr!

Debby - Miss V enjoyed herself, and I got to be 2 years old again, definitely great fun :)

Trish - Exhausted? Miss V? Never.
Second birthday's are both exciting and a little scary, aren't they?

Preschool Mama - Yep, we all had Polar Wonderful time. I was a fan of the kewl blue theme, too.

Definitely inspired, Jeanie!

Megan - A bear hug from M! Exactly what I need! :)
