Over here in the Smashed Peas household we just love every book that Mo Willems writes. He has a lifetime fan in all of us through and through.
I think the most loved books of all are his Pigeon books. There is just something that my littles and me, me, me! So much so that we had to have a little get together with friends to celebrate the newest addition in this book series, The Pigeon Needs a Bath! We were so excited when we found out that a new book was being released earlier this April and since we received it, it has seen much play in our bedtime reading routine lineup.
My littles will not even consider going to bed The Pigeon - Various - Melody Time - Party Time (Box Set) we read it at minimum 3 times! Thank goodness I love it too. So I put together a fun Pigeon-themed party because….
We had a really great time eating, laughing, playing, making crafts and it made me realize I really need to do things like this more often!
I put together a fun goody bag for each guest which included hardback copies of The Pigeon Needs a Bath! Then I also included a super fun bath scrubby, a miniature rubber ducky, Duckling-style bubbles, and a plastic Believe In Love - Diversiti - Diversiti cap which is not in the picture! The food for any get together is always one of my favorite things to plan!
For this party I offered vanilla cupcakes with pigeon-blue icing, chocolate pigeon nests with a sweet little egg, clementine segments in the shape of pigeon beaks, miniature hot dogs in miniature buns, and duckling crackers. I think one of my most favorite decorations for this party was the Pigeon cupcake toppers I made. You may have seen them on Instagram you can follow me here if you The Pigeon - Various - Melody Time - Party Time (Box Set) These were super easy to make.
I just used two different sized circular paper punches and punched out the blue pigeon head and the white of the eye. I used a small hand held punch to make the little black pupil. And I cut out triangle for the beak.
Then I used a glue A Dying Wish - Anathema - The Silent Enigma to put it all together and hot glued them to a toothpick! I came up with two fun and easy crafts for little hands.
The first was using a simple blue balloon. I offered white, black, and yellow card stock for the littles to cut out the parts of the circular parts of the eyes and the triangular beak. Then using a glue stick they could easily glue on each piece to the balloon. Just add a shower cap and Pigeon is ready for his bath! The second craft used the same colors of card stock but also included a small blue paper plate and a wooden tongue depressor.
We had such a great time hanging out with good friends and carving out a small part of our busy day to chat and laugh while eating some fun treats and crafting up some Pigeon-style fun.
We must definitely do it again! Maybe every time Сяду В Скорый Поезд - Михаил Боярский - Спасибо Родная Willems releases a new book we could evolve the theme even more?

My MIL recently got my boys into the pigeon books and we have been reading them every night. I surprised my oldest with the new book as a little spring break gift. He even acted out the story when he was taking a bath tonight. Thank you SO much for sharing!!! Thanks for your ideas!!
Where did you get the balloons or stickers for the balloons? My daughter has a pigeon birthday party coming up and they would be perfect! Hi Carrie! They are so cute, right! We love Pigeon, and I would like to do a Pigeon party at our house. Where did you find the miniature hot dog buns? Hi Bethany! I made them! I just used frozen rolls and broke them in two after raising the dough and then shaped them into little hot dog buns.
Thank you, Rebecca! This was such a fun party to create, all the kids loved it!!! The Pigeon books are hilarious and the illustrations lend so well to simple, inexpensive decorations like Pigeon balloons and cupcakes. Food for the party is pretty simple and cute.
