green buttons on the front.
Two Peas in a Pod Decoration Ideas
Decorate with two different shades of green - light and dark.
Throw in splashes of white and pink (pea flowers).
Decorate the table with a white table cloth and use green flatware and
plates or a green table cloth with white and pink cups, plates, napkins
Or use a polka dotted white / light green / dark green table cloth.
A white tablecloth with green circle confetti spread on the table look
nice also. Use a clear plastic table cloth laid over the
table to cover up the confetti for younger children.

light green balloons ( the peas) surrounded by darker green balloons.
Two Peas in a Pod Activities
Paint and decorate wooden picture frames. Let children paint their
picture frame green and then glue on buttons for peas. You can
also teach them how to paint curly vines for decoration.
Plant Pea Plants
Give each party guest a small terra cotta pot and let them fill with
potting soil. Then let them plant three or four pea seeds in the
pot. Tie with a green bow. This is a fun activity that
doubles as a party favor they can take home.
Peas in a Pod Party Games
Pea Transfer Game
This is for older children or adults at the party. Set out two
plates in front of the players. On one plate set out 20- 30
peas. Give players a set of chopsticks and tell them to transfer
the peas from one plate to the other as fast as they can. Set a
time limit - 1 or 2 minutes and see which player can transfer the most
Peas in a Pod Toss
Make or buy large 4" green beanbags (or you can use green Nerf balls).
Set up several baskets that the players will have to throw their "peas"
into. You can also use buckets and set them one behind the other -
players have to put their "pea" in the first bucket, then the second,
etc. Anyone to hit all three buckets wins a prize.
Use green plastic Easter eggs, balls or make your own cut outs of peas
and hide them around the party area, yard or park where you are having
the party. On some of the items you hide write a number.
Send guests on a treasure hunt to find the "peas" and when they find one
with a number on it they will receive a prize that corresponds to that
number. Buy small green prizes before the game and assign them a
Pea Shell Game
This is an old game that used to be played on the streets with a pea and
walnut shells. You will need three plastic cups and a ping pong
ball. The object of the game is for the player to guess which cup
the ping pong ball is hidden under after you mix up the cups. Show
the player which cup the ball is in then place the cup upside down over
the ball. Take the three cups (that are all now upside down) and
shuffle them around for a little while - 5 - 10 seconds. Without
lifting the cups ask the guest which cup they think the ball is under.
Using a ping pong ball is the only way we could do this that the kids
wouldn't hear the ball hitting the side of the cups when we shuffled
them around. Winners receive a small prize.
a Pod Food
This is a cute "pea pod" cupcakes idea found at
The pea pods are made from rolling out green fruit chews and putting
green M&Ms inside for peas. Vines are made with green airheads
that are cut into thin strips
Peas in a Pod Party Favors
The pea plants and pots made in the activity above or terra cotta pots,
small ziploc bag of dirt and a package of pea seeds. Make a cute
miniature garden sign that says "Peas" that they can put in their pot
when they plant it at home.
Goody / Loot Bag ideas for a Two Peas in a Pod
Green plain bags tied with curling ribbon. We like to place the
items in the bag, then fold down the top about 1". Use a hole
punch to punch two holes through the fold on the bag about 3" apart.
Thread curling ribbon or raffia through the holes and tie a bow.
Wrap goodies up in a green and white bandana or green material and
with light green, pink and white curling ribbon.
