One of our favorite children’s illustrators, Karen Lee, did the art work for the party kit. The way she draws Sparky and his parade of kids is sweet and loveable. The cupcakes had white frosting and chocolate chips - just like the spots on Sparky. We used the circle tags in the kit to make the cupcake toppers. When the kids arrived we had a station to make party hats and name tags (we used Sparky badges for the name tags). What is a party without a shirt to go with it? T-shirts transfers are in the kit...as easy as 1-2-3.
The candy jars were filled with red licorice (fire hoses), mini chocolate bars with the candy wraps from the kit (chocolate bark) and gum (Sparky’s chews). We printed the circle tags on iron-on transfer paper for the favor bags and filled them with fun (and cheap) goodies from NFPA -- crayons, pencils, activity books and stickers. There was a station for the cootie catchers (yes, they are actually called that) where kids could learn how to use them and for the little ones a grown-up helped them read their fortunes.
Each table had coloring sheets and activity place mats for the kids to take a break during the party. Pin the badge on Sparky was a hit with all ages (the older kids got a few extra spins).
Sparky’s paw prints led the way to (and from) the party. Kids and adults couldn’t help following the prints to see where they ended.
