Let’s face it, as a single mom, you might not always ‘get’ your boys, but you do know that anything and everything gross and disgusting is appealing to them. Why not capitalize on this and plan a gross birthday party for your little guy? Here are some ideas to get you started.
First, plan your cake carefully. A kitty litter cake is always a fun idea. To make this, crumble two boxed cake mixes, one white and one chocolate, and mix them with some vanilla pudding to make it moist, but not soggy. Place this in a litter-box shaped box that is lined with wax paper or some other food-grade liner. Next, crumble some vanilla sandwich cookies, dying a few of them green with green food color. Sprinkle these over the cake. Microwave a few Tootsie rolls for a few seconds, and then mold them into poo shapes. Roll them through the cookies and then use them to decorate the cake.
Your activities should be gross too. Consider a baby diaper identification game. Use the microwave to soften several different types of candy bars, then smash them into a baby diaper. The goal of the game is to figure out what kind of candy bar it is using all of your senses. It will look enough like poo that the boys may not want to taste it!
Finally, pack your party favors in a “dirty” sock. Take a new white sock and dust it with cocoa powder. Stuff it full of gross party favors like silly putty and body part candies, and hand one to each child when they leave. Birthday parties with party favors are a must!
Remember, the point of a gross birthday party is to have fun, so let your son help you with some ideas and roll with the flow. You will be considered the coolest mom on the block when you throw this appealing party for your guy.
