Ancient Greece Mr.Peabody & Sherman Party #PeabodyAncientGreece #PeabodyInsiders

 photo unnamed-3.pngThis family loves a chance to get together with friends and party.  One of our favorite movies right now is Mr.Peabody and Sherman there is so much adventure and lots to learn along the way.  We decided to have an Ancient Greece Peabody party.  To begin with we printed out some invitations and shared them with our guest.  After the party was set it was time to head to Michael's for some craft supplies. I could spend hours picking out craft supplies in there they have everything my crafty heart desires and probably more.  For our party I decided to try to make a Trojan horse craft and worry beads.  Both of these crafts are fairly simple making it easy for the girls to do most of the work with a little instruction on their own.

First, we played a little game called Trojan War Trivia.  There were a lot of fun facts to be learned. Did You Know...?

Then we did this thing that is always a favorite called eating .  Um Yes we did. We had our favorite party fair which was pizzas (they are just to easy when you have a bunch of kids. ) If you wanted to be more creative than that you could try these Peabody Party Snack Recipes.  They would definitely be yummy to.

After our bellies were nice and full we decided to get our crafty on.

After we finished making Trojan Horses and Worry Beads we move on to games. To make our Trojan Horse Paper Crafts I used the printable template found at DLTK Kids . After I printed the template I cut out the horses shapes out. The girls then uses tape and glue to assemble them. They were allowed to decorate their horses anyway they chose. We had paint, sequins, markers and no craft project is complete without glitter.

  • relaxation , general use and passing the time
  • an amulet to guard against bad luck
  • as a mark of power and social prestige
We learned that worry beads are usually in odd numbers. They usually have a tassel on the end . They can be made of any kind of bead but amber is the preferred . 

  Pin the Bowtie on Mr.Peabody was the perfect game before winding things down . Then we grabbed our treat cups of popcorn  and grabbed a spot to watch Mr.Peabody and Sherman on DVD.
