Motor Mouth's latest OBSESSION is Sonic the Hedgehog.
It took a bit of work but we managed to put together a special party for him for less than we would normally spend on his cake.
J made the above graphic. J took a pick of Motor Mouth and added Sonic.
He asked Motor Mouth what his favorite Sonic scene was = Street Scene. Voila!
This was posted on our TV and iPad and was shown between photos of Motor Mouth from birth to now.
Sonic Food Table
- Water Bottles
- Cupcakes (notice the swirl patterns..?)
- Blue Corn Chips
- Hummus (nothing to do with Sonic but J made from scratch)
- Sonic plates and napkins from Party Express
Sonic colors are blue and yellow.
Not many blue foods but there's blue corn chips!!!
How perfect is that.
Sonic Gold Rings
Sonic is always trying to get gold rings.
Yellow is one of Sonic's signature colors.
And Sonic loves onions.
How perfect are Funions?!!
Sonic Bottled Water
I peeled the labels off mini bottled water bottles then
used home printed shipping labels to the front
Sonic the Hedgehog Popcorn
Not only did I steal this idea from my friend, Dr. C., I also borrowed her popcorn holder!
It's just a box with wrapping paper and square holes cut out
but it saved me time!!!
I found a Sonic graphic, printed it on card stock and taped the edges.
Chaos Emerald Skittles
Yummy and easy - Open bag and pour!
Box of cake mix, $1
Divide into equal parts and use a LOT of food coloring.
You want to get a really vivid blue and vivid yellow
We put yellow icing on the blue cupcakes and blue icing on the yellow cupcakes
J put them in a swirl pattern on a platter (covered with red tissue paper)
Pin the Tail on Tails
Motor Mouth free hand drew Tails from Sonic.
The boys were blindfolded and pinned a "tail" on Tail
Sonic the Hedgehog Take Home Gift Bag
- Blue Canvas Bag
- Custom Sonic the Hedgehog Coloring Book
- Chaos Emerald
3/$1 at Dollar Tree
Custom Coloring Book Cover
Motor Mouth is a great artist so I had him freehand draw an original cover for each of his friends.
He found Sonic poses on the Internet then drew them himself.
The front and back covers are card stock.
I saved (hoarded) free binding comb samples for years.
And, I just so happen to have access to a binding machine...
I Googled "Free Sonic the Hedgehog Coloring Pages"
Then I printed it b&w 4-up on regular paper
Sonic is always collecting Chaos Emeralds
I found these small bags at Michaels, 175/$2.99
"Emeralds" were $1 at Dollar Tree in a pack w/jewelry beads
I wrote up and printed the inserts using regular paper
Edible Chaos Emeralds
We could only find Easter Skittles so I covered the
easter bunny with a Sonic and friends label
Gifts are never the goal
The Chicago Widneys are a social group that enjoys being with friends
I hope some of these ideas can be implemented at your Sonic the Hedgehog party. It's fun to see how creative other people are and how ideas are translated for different environments and people. If you do use some of the ideas, I would love to see what you did. Please comment and/or include a link so I can see your pictures. Have fun creating!
