I really thought we’d be doing a Peppa Pig birthday for Miss Elliott, who turns 3 in May, but she insists she wants Daniel Tiger. So, Daniel Tiger it is!
PBS has a page with some really cute party ideas, free printables and graphics so I’ll be using some of those resources to create more great things for her party. I loved the trolley so here is my version, which just needs a few more finishing to be complete.
I didn’t think a box wrapped in wrapping paper would hold up very well so I decided to cover ours with flannel and felt. I used cardstock for the roof and as I was gluing the roof and the top yellow piece I discovered the plastic container I used is entirely too flimsy to hold any kind of weight on top of it without buckling, so we will not be using this as a dessert plate holder. But we could still put cupcakes on top I guess. The PBS website didn’t give dimensions for the box so I found one I thought looked like a good size. While it is a decent size, it probably should’e been about 5″ longer…if you compare my trolley to the one on the PBS site you might notice mine only has two windows on the side. Not a huge deal, but I was a little disappointed. LOL Oh well.
P.S. I know sorta fell off the grid after Halloween, and for that I apologize. But, I promise to share all the fun Daniel Tiger birthday party printables with you when they are ready. Will you forgive me for being such a terrible blogger?! =) I’m more active on Facebook and Instagram if you want to hang out with me there!
