magic party for a 5 year old

This is our 4th 5-year-old Magic birthday party, inspired by my dad who likes to do magic.  We wanted to have a craft for the kids to decorate and cool stuff to send them home with, including a real magic trick that our very own magician will teach them how to do!  Consistent with our family tradition, Sigurd the Wizard (a.k.a. my dad) will perform his excellent magic show extravaganza, with the birthday girl as his assistant.

Medieval Birthday Party 2011

Well, it’s Joe’s birthday again and he requested another medieval party. We have a luge run and a rink in our backyard. We had the Joust, King’s Crusade obstacle course, Ice (rink) Escape, Dragon Attack, Save the Maiden outside and the Castle Siege and Target Attack events inside… enough for everyone to get their own trophy from the dollar store. We chose to make just one big castle and enough catapults for everyone to launch their mini-marshmallows. I think next time I’ll chill the marshmallows beforehand so that they won’t get soft and gooey. Check out our directions for the castle and the catapults. I guess my camera was still a little cold from being outside. we’re done!
