Kelan's 7th Adventure

We just celebrated my son's 7th birthday. He wanted to have an Indiana Jones party so I started in October purchasing skeleton's from on local dollar store after Halloween. When searching the internet for ideas I stumbled upon and had her make the awesome passports for each kid. div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">
Upon arriving to the party the kids made a stop to get geared up for the adventure. Each kid received a blow dart gun, passport, Indiana Hat and a satchel. The satchel's were filled with a compass, spider ring and eyeball gumball.
At this station the kids used there blow dart guns to defeat Mola Ram. I made him from black foam board and the red circle was made from felt. The nerf dart had velcro on the end so that they stuck to the felt.
At the Pankot Palace Buffet the kids had to retrieve golden coins from the yucky bowls of Monkey Brains (jello), Snake Guts (spaghetti with yogurt)and Eyeball Soup (frozen grapes).
Conquer Your Fears...each kid had to swing over the snake pit. Indiana Jones has a fear of snakes.
At the Sands of Egypt they had to retrieve a rock (I made these the recipe is at They had to break the rock and inside was a coin with letters on them. They had to unscramble the letters for the code to find the hidden treasure.
Chilled Monkey Brains! Cup of red jello and I took a mini rice cake and dipped it in red candy coating to have the "brains" look to it.
Indiana (Kelan) with his cake.
Love the action photos...this was such an awesome party. The kids talk about it all the time.
A lot of work but it paid see the smiles on the kids faces and the memories will last forever.
