Dora the Explorer Themed Birthday Party

For my daughter's second birthday, we are having a Dora the Explorer birthday! We are serving enchiladas and chips, etc with a Dora cake and ice cream. We bought simple red and orange steamers and balloons to decorate with.


When people RSVP, I'll request that they dress in orange and red, just to make it fun for everyone!

For a cartoon birthday party on a budget, Here's what I do. I make a DORA CAKE. I use a round layer cake for the face with another round layer cut and fitted around head to make the hair. It costs $3 as compared to about $15 for a bakery cake.

Make your own pinata. Take a balloon and cover it in paper mache and tissue paper to look like Dora's head for about $3 instead of the usual $15.

Make your own "Pin The Tail" game. Print a picture of Swiper and cut off the tail for about $2.

For musical chairs, put pictures on pieces of poster board. Put those on the floor instead of chairs. Whoever is sitting on a picture gets the "chair".


Makes a great child's party for about that costs $9.

These are great ideas. Thank you very much. I do have one craft to add. Take two tp rolls and have kids tape together then color, add sticker and they have made there own binoculars. (04/24/2006)
