Rainbow Unicorn Birthday Party

 A few weeks ago my sweet girl turned 6 and we had a rainbow unicorn party per her request (I wouldn't expect anything less!) I wanted to share a few crafty things we created for this special day. It was a fun one, for sure!

 We had to spread the word throughout the neighborhood that there was indeed a six-year-old among us! We made this really easily with artificial flowers, hot glue and a small canvas.

 I was lucky to find some great little mystical figurines (including unicorns) and added them to our sand table along with some water beads. The kids were thrilled to find this gem in the yard.

Pin the HORN on the unicorn! I did a quick painting of a hornless unicorn on the back of a sheet of gift wrap. I cut horns from sticky foam sheets for the game. It was a hit.

We didn't have the most magical of menus, since the birthday girl is a big fan of tacos, but I did make a rainbow fruit salad to festive up our food table. Oh and finally had a use for the grass placemats that I ordered for the taco fans third birthday party (every 3 years they get used, I'd say that's something!)
 
 I found these very cool vintage looking stickers and tattoos on Amazon.
 
OK, I did not get the best picture of this activity, but it was fun. I used a unicorn chocolate mold to make plaster unicorns for the girls to paint.  This is very easy and inexpensive to do and you can do this for just about any party theme out there.

 To greet our guests, we added a horn to our old retired rocking horse (isn't he cute? I just can't seem to part with him!) Oh and more about those fantastic horns to come.

 I made tails with elastic and ribbon and used chalk to draw magical unicorn hooves leading to the front door. With all of our horns in the basket the girls could walk into the party already in full rainbow unicorn fashion!

Here a quick low down on the horns. I used half a foam sheet and rolled it up with hot glue, decorated with ribbon and attached to a fabric headband with more hot glue. So easy!

There are my two unicorns in full magical unicorn form!

To thank our ever so lovely unicorn guests for attending our party we sent them home with a bag full of jewels, of course.

My Dear Rainbow Unicorn,
You have a sweet sensitive soul that many adults don't even understand. You amaze me each and every day with your passion for everything you do and your compassion for everyone you meet. You are going to change this world, just mark my words.
I love you.
your mama
