I am not exactly sure who was looking forward to this party more: me or my kids! We own and have probably watched the first two Madagascar movies at least 100 times (each!). On June 8th, Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted will hit theaters in 3D and we can't wait!
To celebrate the release of the movie, DreamWorks Animation, with the help of CrowdTap, selected several people to host a party. I was one of the lucky ones and received a digital party kit with (almost) everything I would need to throw a great bash! The great thing about a digital kit: no waiting for snail mail delivery. It was sitting in my email Inbox almost immediately after I was notified I was chosen to host.
The party kit included:
- Recipe for Marty's Zebra Cake
- Face Masks of Alex, Melman, Marty and Gloria
- Pin The Tail On Gloria Game
- Miscellaneous Activities (Mazes, "Find the Differences", Coloring Sheets, Tic-Tac-Toe, etc)
Since we already owned the first Madagascar movie as well as Madagascar: Escape to Africa, I added those to the itinerary for the day but ultimately let the kids in attendance choose what they wanted to do. Kids + choices = a much smoother party, in my opinion! Oh, and of course we had plenty of popcorn and juice boxes to go with the cake!
TIME TO PLAY!
All of the kids love to color and be creative. The mazes were such a big hit, they actually wanted me to print more! The older kids liked the face masks, but it took at least three attempts to get a "decent" picture with everyone (sitting still). LOL…kids! As for Pin The Tail on Gloria: AJ was the Winner!
LET'S EAT CAKE!
A huge (and I mean HUGE) "Thank You" to my sister who came through for me and made the cake. I love to bake, but she is the expert when it comes to decorating them….Soooo, as you can see: she did a FABULOUS JOB! my sister!!!
The party was a major success! Everyone had fun, the cake was delicious, and the kids (and parents) slept great that night.
Are you planning to see Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted when it hits theaters in 3D on June 8th?
Disclosure: On behalf of Dreamworks Animation through CrowdTap, I received the items listed in the party kit free of charge in order to facilitate this review. Regardless, all opinions expressed are my own.
