Are you planning a children’s party? Consider this exciting theme as you organize and send out party invitations. Avatar: The Last Airbender was a popular show on Nickelodeon that ran for three seasons and was enjoyed by children. M. Night Shyamalan’s adaptation of The Last Airbender has brought this famous program to the big screen.
Used balloons and streamers and tablecloths in red (fire), green (earth), blue (water) and yellow (air). Also printed out several of the four icons and had my son color them.
We decorated the playhouse as a fire nation and put up three cardboard wall barriers wrapped in $1 plastic tablecloths with the respective colors for air, water and earth and painted the fire, water, air, earth icons on them. These were to be used in a later game too.
I came up with a game for each nation.
The first game was the airbending game. I used this for the kids to do something while we waited for everyone to come. I created air cannons. I used regular drinking plastic cups and cut out the bottom. Then I used a round piece of plastic grocery bag to cover the top and put a rubber band around the top to hold it. Then I took a smaller rubber band and taped it to the center of the plastic.
When the children pull the rubber band a shot of air comes out the end. I put lots of stickers on the table for them to decorate their canon until everyone showed up. When everyone was there I explained to them that airbenders need to practice their skills to get good. We turned on a bubble maker and had others blowing large bubbles.
The kids were to go around snapping their air canons and popping the bubbles. If they were really good they could get the bubbles to move and not pop and if really expert you could split the bubbles into several bubbles. The kids ran around having a great time controlling the bubbles. Everyone who passed training got AIRheads candy.
The next game was learning to earthbend. I bought some very small inexpensive geodes online. We hid them in a plastic pool filled with sand along with several other different rocks. We explained how earthbenders know the right rocks to control and many have power crystals in them.
We showed them what they were looking for and then had them all search for one (they each only were to find 1 geode) and then my husband broke open the geodes (a large chisel and hammer works the best). The kids loved them. They got to keep the rocks. Everyone who participated got ROCKcandy.
This is guaranteed to be popular among TV program lovers and would be a great birthday party theme or perhaps a birthday costume this year. Request that your guests dress as Airbenders in your invitation, or supply temporary tattoos, capes, and bright shirts for the kids to wear when they arrive at the party. Make sure the children bring their bathing suits to the celebration.
In addition, I’ve made or left a pretty large space, so you can freely write or type your party information and it can be crystal clear enough to be easily read by your guests.
