-One of the take home gifts (as well as music that was played during the party) was a mixed cd of music from Animal Crossing New Leaf. Mimibun on instagram tipped me off to KHinsider, They have music you can download from Animal Crossing New Leaf so I picked some of our favorites and created the mixed cd.
-For the stickers I printed the characters cut them out and ran them through my Xyron to create stickers.
-There are so many great websites out there with QR codes for the game, so we just found some of our favorites and had them printed on card stock.
-For the tablecloth I created a background repeat that looks like the grass on the game, then I overlaid the same characters I used for the stickers from the game over top and had it printed with Spoonflower. Now that the party is over I can use the fabric to sew fun bags, DS cases etc for fun!
-You can see the fish I used for the game. You need heavy duty magnets to hook to them (the paper clips didn’t work well, but a magnet on the fishing pole and one on the fish work great!) As you can see my info about the fish didn’t really match up with images of fish, but luckily no one cared and it was just a fun game.
-You can download the stickers, cd cover, fish, and fish puns here
-I found the Animal Crossing font Fink Heavy here
We had the piñata (and a gorgeous day!) a few general games, and then a fishing tournament. Ahead of time I had printed out a bunch of fish, and attached puns to the back (which I copied from the game) Each fish listed it’s length (like the game) and had little magnets, the kid’s caught the fish with poles with string and paper clips and then we checked to see who had caught the biggest fish, based on the lengths listed on the back. I made sure not to make the measurements on the back correspond with the actual fish sizes, so it would be a mystery as to what size catch you’d end up with. The winner got a little trophy like the fishing tournament in the game.
For the little take home gifts I made up boxes with balloons. In the game animal crossing these some times float around in the sky and you use your slingshot to shoot them down & get a prize. Inside the boxes were mixed cds with music from the game (I’ll have some more info on those tomorrow) silly string, bells (more of the chocolate coins), stickers I made of the game characters using my xyron, and little QR codes we had picked out and printed.
I’ll have some more details on all those tomorrow and some files so you can make your own!
