How to create a curious Caillou Birthday Party
Caillou is a based on the very curious and adorable French Canadian kid. Children around the world have learned to love, laugh and enjoy the TV show. If your son or daughter is asking for a Caillou birthday this year than this article can help kick start your party planning.
Caillou is a based on the very curious and adorable French Canadian kid. Caillou was first introduced in books by Chrsitine L'Heureux and illustrated by Helene Desputeaux. The books were later adapted for a television show which is now in it's 6th season and runs on PBS kids.
Since Caillou is such a curious child with a huge imagination he is always on the go either painting, cooking or even being a scientist. This makes Caillou a very popular character and tv show.
If your child has asked for a Caillou birthday party this year then you are in luck as this is a very fun theme! There are plenty of different party supplies, ideas and creative games to play.
The decorations can be as simple or as complex as you'd like. We suggest primary colors that correspond with the Caillou theme such as blue, yellow and red. This can be incorporated with balloons, streamers and a tablecloth. Then simply add a few official Caillou merchandise to the decorations such as a wall decal or pinnate. You can also have an episode of Caillou playing in the background as the kids arrive or right after lunch. The kids will enjoy watching their favourite show especially if it's one they haven't seen before!
Next, the party games. Be sure the party games are active, creative and something that they can use their imagination. This can be as simple as pin the tail on the donkey to having a decorate a place-mat station. The place-mat station would be setup with a white card-stock paper, crayons, stencils, and stickers. The kids can then create whatever image they want using their supplies. Once they're finished they can either add them to their party favours or use them while they eat food.
Another party game idea would include a relay race where they have to dress up in a silly costume. This could include overalls, striped shirt, hat, scarf and oversized boots. Although, this sounds like a silly idea kids love this game and enjoy laughing with their friends.
Remember with the party games to include time for free-play where the kids get to use their imagination to run, jump and explore on their own.
Another thing to consider is the food for the party. You can choose to do something simple such as grilled cheese sandwiches and veggies. However, another option to consider is a 'create you own pizza' station. In one episode of Caillou he becomes a chef so you can show that episode to them and they will want to partake in creating the food themselves. The pizza's are simple to make as you can buy pre-made shells, sliced pepperoni and then add whatever veggies are popular (tomatoes, green peppers and mushrooms). The pizza's take about 10-20 minutes to cook and would be a good time for the 'decorate your placemat' activity!
