Flintstone "Pebbles" Party

Who doesn't love the Flintstones? I am sure many of us have seen The Flintstones at least once in our lives and fell in love with their lifestyle in the Stone Age. Their memorable cars and elephant vacuum cleaners have simply marked our childhood. Here are some essentials tips to how to create a Pebbles Party your own way.


Send out the invites with these lovely customize Pebbles theme invitation by Mimi's Dollhouse. Go to Mimi's Dollhouse to select this Pebbles invitation, add your photo, and provide all the party information. Once you are finished, order the invites, and wait for them to arrive. Make sure you do this ahead of time. 


A few Pebbles and Dino figures adds a special touch to this particular Flintstones themed birthday cake! Tape a few balloons to the background to make this party look effortless, but very chic.


Who doesn't love cake pops? They are always ready to go and easy to grab for any party guest.

Fruit Pebbles Krispy treats is very appropriate for this Pebble themed party. Fruit pebbles can be found in any grocery or department store.Cook several marshmallow with some water and stir until the marshmallow is melted. Fill the pan with fruit pebbles and apply the hot dissolve marshmallow on top of it.  Place the pan in the oven and bake them for 20 mins under 350 degree. Once they are done, let your treats cool down and cut them in a square. Enjoy!

How unique are these Fruits Pebbles themed donuts? For the full recipe of these amazing donuts, go to We Are Not Martha to see how to make them at your own home.


Popcorn bag favors are truly the best. They are very tasty and yummy to chew, especially this pink colored popcorn with white sprinkles. Make your typical favorite popcorn and add water to empty bowl with a pint of food coloring. Once your popcorn is ready, lightly pour a little coloring to your popcorn and add some white sprinkles. Once they are finished drying, pour them in some clear party favor bags and seal it with a pink ribbon to finish your look. I hope your party guest enjoys them. If you can kindly give us some feedback, we'll love to hear how they turn out.

The Flintstones loved to bowl. So I think bowling will be perfect game for your Pebbles themed party guest to play together. Collect several empty soda bottles, add water, and add some individual food coloring. Find a long sheet to create a alley. Grab a ball, form a line, and start playing.

Outdoor Activites for Fun in the Sun

Now that March is coming to an end it's time to take advantage of the great spring weather. It can be difficult  though, to persuade your children to move away from the comfort of their video games and television so offer some fun outdoor activities to help get them moving.

Bubbles are always a hit with children but it can get very messy. To help make the activity a little less sticky use a large drink dispenser. If you have an old one laying around or find one at a local thrift shop it can be a surprisingly cheep alternative to spilled bubble soap bottles.

Some small holes in a two by four, water guns, golf tees, and ping pong balls will make the perfect homemade carnival game. The kids can race each other to hit all the ping pong balls off with their water stream if you make more than one. And they can always make it more challenging by moving further away from the target.

These jet packs are so easy to make and they will be a great accessory. Just paint some soda bottles and add some flames and straps and the kids will be jetting around the yard like there is no tomorrow.

If you have a lot of trees in your yard you can tie string across them to create an obstacle course. Or they can pretend the strings are laser beams and fine tune their spy skills.

This game has the same basic concept as soccer but you can alter the scoring system by making different colored goals worth different points. The possibilities are endless and will keep the kids entertained for hours. You can make the goals by cutting hula hoops in half and sticking each end into the ground.

Bowling is always a hit with children and a DIY bowling alley is such a simple, creative remedy to those lazy summer days.

A little spray paint can go a long way if you use it to make an outdoor Twister mat like this. The good thing about this game is you can make it as easy or challenging as your kids want depending on how many circles there are and how far they are spaced. Don't feel obligated to make the original rectangle shape of the mat either. Try a circular, triangular, or any other shape outline that you want to see which is most fun.
