your own imaginary friend for your Foster's Home party. Provide
white butcher paper on a wall or on the table. Markers, crayons,
yarn and glue or glitter. Clay would work as well, if they
want to sculpt a character instead. Let each guest design
a character and give him or her a name. Bloo's full name is
Blooregard Q. Kazoo - maybe their character can have a long
name and a nickname, too!
Make a Bloo cake! Foster's Home wouldn't be the same without
Bloo. A rectangle cake and a half circle cake at the top will
make his basic shape. Add blue food coloring to some white
icing and you'll have Bloo!
Play "pin the backpack on Mac". Put a picture of
Mac on the wall and cut out different colored rectangles for
a backpack for Mac. Put tape or poster tack on the back of
each one and play the traditional game.
Play Foster's Home hide and seek with Eduardo. Everyone knows
Eduardo is the most afraid. Print a picture of Eduardo, cut
it out and glue it to construction paper to make him more
sturdy. Now hide him somewhere in the party area. Tell the
guests that they all scared Eduardo when they came in, so
now they have to help Mac find him to invite him to the party.
Have a Foster's Home Frisbee toss. Set up a series of targets
outside and give each guest a small flying disc or heavy-duty
paper plate. Now they can take turns going through the "course"
of targets and see who gets the best score. Each toss counts
Print out images of the main characters - Madame Foster, Mr.
Herriman, Mac, Bloo, Frankie, Wilt, Eduardo, Coco
hang them from ribbons or on the walls of the party. These
can be great parting gifts for your guests as well.
Cake ideas - the Foster's Home gang travel in a purple bus.
You can make a rectangle cake and decorate it in purple to
be the bus. Design new characters by cutting colored fruit
roll-up candies or arranging other candies on the cake top.
Now you have more imaginary friends arriving at the house!
