The Party Games:
Pin the tail on Pikachu
For this game I did some searching online for pictures of Pikachu. I found this one of him standing with his backside facing you and him looking over his shoulder and I thought it was perfect for "Pin the tail on Pikachu". So I drew the image on to a poster board and then painted it. Then I painted the tail white so the kids would know where to put the tails but make it look like his tail was missing.
Here's a couple pictures of the kids playing.
Spoink Race ( sorry about the wrinkled state of my posters but I forgot to take pictures of them until the day after the party)
Here are my ping pong pokeball masterpieces. :)
Here are the kids trying to pop the balloons.

I drew and painted these. The pokemon characters were painted on cardboard and the birthday sign, pokeballs and lightning bolts were painted on big sheets of paper.
This is the Pikachu table centerpiece that I made. I painted Pikachu onto a piece of foambaord and then cut him out. Then I painted a wooden dowel black and stuck it into the bottom of Pikachu. For the base I paper mache'd a ball shape, cut the top off and then decorated it to look like a pokeball. Then I put styrofoam inside the pokeball and pushed the wooden dowel into the styrofoam. Then to cover up the styrofoam I stuck colored tissue paper in the pokeball. I had bought these swirly lolipops at Oriental Trading Co. for Adam's party and decided they would look cute sticking out of the centerpiece. So I just stuck the lolipops in the styrofoam too. And voila! there he is!
And here's the back.
