Pinkalicious is a fantastic children's book by Victoria and Elizabeth Kann. It tells the story of a little girl who can't stop eating her Mom's pink cupcakes- and she eats so many that she turns pink! My youngest daughter loves this book, and so we planned a Pinkalicious Birthday Party for her 5th birthday! It turned out to be one of her favorite kids birthday parties!
The Pinkalicious Birthday Party Invitation:
I created a clean and simple invitation for this party- featuring the Pinkalicious pink cupcake! You can download a blank version for free at the bottom of this post!
The Order of Our Pinkalicious Birthday Party Events:
Since Lili has a summer birthday, we were able to hold her party outside on a lovely sunny day!
When the guests arrived, we set up a “silly” croquet game in the yard using a kids croquet set kids croquet set . After the girls hit the balls through the wicket, they had to follow the instructions we posted on the top of the wicket- silly things like “jump up and down 5 times while singing Happy Birthday” or “spin in a circle 5 times fast”!
After all of the guests had a chance to play the silly croquet game, we made our party craft- bottle cap necklaces that featured the Pinkalicious character. (We found the bottle cap pictures over on Etsy !)
The girls glued in the paper cut out and then placed a plastic “bubble” on top to protect the paper. They strung the bottle cap onto the necklace cord of their choice. Then they made a bottle cap bracelet, using stickers of their choosing.
After the craft, we all sat down on a picnic blanket, and I read the story of “ Pinkalicious “!
Next, we played a “pass the crown” game that works kind of like “hot potato”- you pass the crown from person to person while the princess music plays, and when the music stops the person left holding the crown is eliminated from the game.
The last activity we did was a hunt for a Pinkalcious puzzle that I had made using an inexpensive puzzle making machine .
The girls first had to sit on a balloon to pop it, and inside of the balloon was a piece of colored paper (a different color for each balloon). They then had to look in a certain area of the yard for a bag of puzzle pieces that also had that same color on it.
When they found their puzzle bag, they could bring it back to the table to assemble it.
Pinkalicious Lunch and Cake:
For lunch we enjoyed a “make your sandwich bat”, and I baked homemade rolls with a bit of red food coloring so they came out pink!
We had watermelon (which of course is pink!) Terra Chips (the red ones), and pink lemonade (hey-I am a Mom that really goes for a theme!)
I baked and decorated this cake, modeled after the pink cupcakes that Pinkalicious adores in the book!
The Pinkalcious Party Favor Bag:
The favor bag itself was simple- a paperback copy of the Pinkalicious book for each guest.
We printed and cut out these party favor tags and taped them to the front of each book! (You can download a copy in the printables pack below!)
The girls also went home with their Pinkalicious bottle cap necklace and bracelets as well as their party puzzle.
