The fifth member of our family is Joplin's Bunny! He was as Easter present for bump before Joplin was born and he has become an extremely important part of Joplin's life!
And so when he turned 5 this year Joplin asked if we could give him a party!
I can't not do themed food but again it had to be quick! Joplin is rather fond of scotch eggs, so these egg and cocktail sausage bunnies were easy and fun.here - bread rolls bunny with a humous tummy and veg dips. I cut an old soup tub to shape to hold the humous so it didn't soak into the bread and the hollowed out tummy part became the tail. I held the rolls together with cocktail sticks.
Another friend arrived with a Peter Rabbit activity book for Bunny - I really wasn't expecting anything at all for a soft bunny's party! He also was the proud receiver of an encyclopaedia which Joplin and Bunny haven'r stopped reading since!
When everyone had arrived after a few mad moments with balloon swords we played some games. Pass the parcel of course, pin the tail on the bunny, treasure map hunt (this is prepared by using a pirate map (Bunny customised of course!) with a red crayon cross on the back. This is taped up to the wall where the red cross doesn't show and everyone writes their name and a cross where they think the treasure is. When everyone is done, the map is taken down and placed up to the window where the cross is revealed! We also had a bunny hop race around the kitchen and 'bunny Gangnam Style' (not my idea this one!!!) I had intended a carrot hunt around the garden and lots more races but unfortunately the weather just didn't allow it.
After games was food and cake! It all seemed to be enjoyed and there seemed about the right amount.
