Mo Willems Pigeon Party Ideas
Moving has been super stressful for the kids. Worrying about starting at a brand new school this fall, I know that my 6-year old daughter is especially fearful of starting 1st grade without her friends and teachers. To help encourage an exciting school season to come, I looked to a familiar old friend, Mo Willems’ Pigeon, to bring smiles to her face. Just in time for back-to-school, we are celebrating a BIG year with these Mo Willems Pigeon Party Ideas, inspired by Mo Willems’ newest book The Pigeon HAS to Go to School!
Mo Willems Pigeon Party Ideas
Mo Willems has a piece of this girl’s heart. Every book has this girl engrossed in reading and laughing along with her favorite Pigeon. I definitely didn’t have to twist her arm when I suggested we plan a Pigeon Party to celebrate the newest Pigeon book release, The Pigeon HAS to Go to School! She loved helping to set up these Pigeon party ideas. It was a good distraction from all of the boxes we have been unpacking. And it was a fun way to celebrate these last few weeks of summer.
From sweet treats,
to kid-friendly drinks and cups,
to fun favor boxes (I am SO in love with these little buses!),
and themed party supplies,
to easy decor (the Pigeon books make great centerpieces and a Pigeon blanket doubles as a fun tablecloth!) with an easy yellow and blue crepe paper banner, this theme was SO much fun to create for our favorite bird.
FREE Printable Pigeon Cupcake Toppers
Who loves cupcakes? We do! We do! I borrowed my FREE Pigeon Printable to make these easy Pigeon cupcake toppers! Just print on cardstock, cut out, and tape to toothpicks for a sweet treat that even Mo Willems’ Pigeon would approve of. Aren’t they a cute addition?
Easy Pigeon Treats | Pigeon Marshmallow Pops
Looking for an easy Pigeon party treat idea? These adorable Pigeon Marshmallow Pops make perfect desserts on a stick. The kids absolutely LOVED them! And you’ll love how easy they were to make with just a few ingredients and little Pigeon love.
What You Will Need:
- yellow paper straws
- (1) bag of large marshmallows
- (1) bag of blue candy melts
- candy eye balls
- (1/2) cup of whole almonds
- (1/2) bag of yellow candy melts
- Insert marshmallow onto the end of a straw. (I made a hole using a chopstick first.)
- Melt blue candy melts according to package directions. Dip marshmallow into melted blue candy and coat to cover. Before hardening, attach one candy eyeball to the center of the marshmallow. Allow to completely dry.
- Cut almonds in half so the pointed part is on one end and the rounded part on the other. Discard (or eat) the rounded ends. Save the pointed ends for the “beaks.”
- Melt yellow candy melt according to package directions. Dip cut almonds into melted yellow candy. Attach beaks to marshmallow. Allow to completely harden.
Serve as a fun sweet treat for kids (who doesn’t love a dessert on a stick?) to celebrate as one of the cutest Mo Willems Pigeon party ideas ever!
