and flowers and have a Nature Scavenger Hunt. The
Nature Scavenger Hunt can be used at a park, lake, pond or backyard.
Each guest receives a nature scavenger hunt list and collection items
(see below).They then are sent off in pairs or groups with
their list. Have a prize for the winning team who finds the most
items. Remove any potential hazards such as fire ants and
poisonous plants before the children arrive. Give each hunter a
gallon size plastic baggie, bucket and spoon to collect their items.

Birthday Invitation Ideas
Make fun flower garden / bug themed
invitations for your party using blank cards and scrapbooking
Cover tables with green tablecloths and
set out plastic or real flowers in vases. Place real and artificial
flowers throughout the room. Cut large petals that look like
flowers from paper or butcher paper and tape together on the walls so
they look like flowers. Make a super size flower garden.
Tie ribbon to helium balloons. Attach plastic
flying insects and bugs to the other end of the ribbon. Don't tie
the balloons down and have them rest on the ceiling so the bugs look
like they are flying.
Bug and Flower
Pin the bug on the flower
Played just like pin the tail on the donkey only use a large
poster of a flower and bug stickers. Buy or draw a flower on a
poster board. Make sure the flower has a stem and leaves and
doesn't take up more then 10% of the poster. Mark a spot on the
large flower using a sticker or marker in case more then one player gets
their bug on the flower - the player closest to this mark wins.
Attach the poster to a wall. Give each party guest a bug sticker
that has a a number written on it. If you can't find stickers then
you can make ladybugs and beetles out of colorful paper.
Party guests form a single line about 10
feet from the poster. Blindfold the first player in line and spin
them around (skip this step for younger children) three times.
Point them in the direction of the poster and have them try and get
their bug on the flower. The guest who's sticker is closest to the
flower (or mark on the flower) wins a prize.
Make bug antenna's with fuzzy pipe cleaners, headbands and
Decorate terra cotta pots with stickers or paint. Fill with
potting soil and the kids can pick some pretty flowers to plant in them
Birthday Party Food
