Doctor Birthday Party Part I

This is my son sleeping with a doctor book in his bed. So for his 5th birthday he asked for a doctor party. At first I said no, cause I couldn't think of ANY creative/theme things to do. Then I looked on the internet and found a few ideas and thought of a lot on my own. So I'll be doing some posts on my doctor birthday party. It was a HUGE HIT with the kids and so unique and fun!
This is the birthday boy. I made the scrubs myself. More on that in Part II.
Pre-Party: It all began with my invitations. I made them like I make my fabric notecards. Red fabric crosses. I will soon have a tutorial for making these notecards.
Closeup.
Inside. I got ideas for the inside from this site here.
For the favor bags: I made bookmarks with scrapbook paper and medical stickers I got at Jo-Ann's and Hobby Lobby. I now have a laminator that I LOVE and these bookmarks are so easy to make. After this step above I trim, hole punch in top and tie a ribbon. Very simple and cute.
Tic Tacs. Did you know that kids LOVE LOVE LOVE these things? I didn't. I just picked them cause they're in pill shapes. But boy were they the HIT of the party! So anyways, I started with tic tacs.
Then found this image in google images for Vitamin C. Copied and printed out.
Cut out labels and glued on. Instant vitamin C.
We had a few different stickers, so we had nurse, doctor, and hospital one. Favor bags included 3 band aids, two skeleton lollipops (got on clearance from Halloween), eyeball or finger or mouth or some body part chocolate (Halloween again), two winter pencils (dollar spot at Target), Vitamin C (tic tacs), sheet of stickers. All in a cellophane bag. I REALLY wanted these. They're syringe pens and can be found on amazon. I waited too long, didn't want to spend anymore money, and just thought the bags were full enough. But aren't they GREAT????? Wish I would have gotten them. Kids would have loved them. But you have to stop sometime.....but next time!?
Doctor stickers.
More to come!
