Tribe challenge #1: Relay challenge. Kid #1 carries a cup with a ball on top to the kiddie pool and returns to tribe, kid #2 (youngest kid) looks for the hidden idol in the kiddie pool goes down slide and returns to tribe, kid #3 carries a cup back to the tribe, kid #4 dips in the pool to find 3 fishes goes back to tribe, kid #5 runs and grabs the puzzle bag from the post and runs back with bag, and kid #6 opens the bag and starts putting the puzzle together. The first tribe to put the puzzle together wins!
I love that all the challenges focused on team work!
Picture by the cake with both tribes.
Having 18 kids trying to “whack” the piñata would have cut into our party time. So birthday boy was the honoree to hit the piñata. The kids were ready with their bags to get the candy!
We can’t have a Survivor party without and auction! Kids were given $20 in play money for the bidding. This was also a learning opportunity for them by practicing basic addition math skills for them, and how to handle money. Daddy was playing the role of Jeff Probst the host of Survivor.
We went simple with the lunch! Hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and their choice of juice, water or soda. The kids took home a cupcake in a box, and their slimy party favor.
