Party Idea: Bicycle Rodeo

9/18/09

For my daughter's 4th birthday party we combined her love of riding her bike and her love of cowgirls. It was a Bike Rodeo Party, complete with bucking broncos and riding the range. My daughter picked this adorable invitation from Julia D. Azar. We worded the invitation - "Yippee! Hooray! It's a Bike Rodeo Birthday! Come ride your bike, play games, and more. Ainsley Gray is turning four!" She wore her own pink cowboy boots for the event as well!

Location: We live on a cul-de-sac and were able to block off the street for the party. We had different stations set up all around the cul-de-sac, including a table for a craft project.
Food: We set up tables outside for a snack of wagon wheel pretzels and cupcakes. My daughter had the adorable Julia D. Azar Cowgirl matching table mat at her place.
Decorations & Favors: Since the party was outside and we had so many games, the games mainly served as the decorations. We gave guests a cello bag filled with gardening gloves and a seed packet they could plant at home. They were packaged in cello bags with raffia and the matching Julia D. Azar cowgirl tag.
Games and Crafts: To stay in theme, we gave the games rodeo names. My husband drew a large bike obstacle course in the center of the cul-de-sac for our "Bucking Bronco." We timed the older children as they did the course. We also has a "Calf Rope" contest where kids raced down the straight part of the cul-de-sac on their bikes and then got off their bikes and threw a hoola hoop over a chair we placed there. We also had water guns for shooting plastic bottles off the small table we had set up. For the younger kids we had a small pool set up with magnetic items they could fish for. Each child also made their own decorative bicycle license plate at the craft station. We all had a blast!
