For winning particular games, offer a few extra cards to those
Provide a giant sheet of cardboard (or half sheet you've precut
before the party) for each guest to create their OWN Pokemon
card. Have them draw the creature, name it, give it a number
of HP and some special powers. This is a great activity to
do early on in the party so that they can be hung up DURING
the party, creating additional decorations during the fun!
The children will also now have something special that they've
created as a parting gift!
Kids love to take balloons home from parties. Ahead of time,
attach a Pokemon card to each balloon. They look great and

from your local dollar store and cover them in paper mache.
Once dried, paint them like Pokemon balls. The design is very

spray paint one side red, the other side white and putting
black electrical tape down the middle to cover neatly where
the two colors came together (spray painting isn't exact.)
Because they are so light, they look great hanging from your
ceiling. They are also good prizes or parting gifts.
