My two little boys will be turning 3 and 5 in May, so I've selected the theme Thing 1 and Thing 2 for their birthday pizza party (since I call them that sometimes!) I've found a cute invitation online and plan to do blue cotton candy (like their hair) for party favors, set up fish bowls filled with Goldfish crackers, and of course some kind of Thing 1 Thing 2 themed-cupcakes....Any other cute or creative ideas you have are much appreciated!!
In case you wonder, I asked them what they wanted and go answers like a Scooby-Bat birthday, so I told them I'd decide and they will get Scooby-Bat toys...LOL

What can I do next?

My SIL threw a party for her twins in this theme. She had shirts made for them and the older kids. So there were Things 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.

You can put the cotton candy in little cups and put 1 or 2 on each one. For the cupcakes, you can use blue icing (like for their hair) and maybe do toothpicks w/ 1 & 2. You can also utilize almost any Dr. Suess items you can find...set up some books as decorations. If you look online you may find mazes, coloring sheets, hat cut-outs, etc.

Are you on Pinterest?? There are a bunch of cute Thing1 & 2 party ideas on there!

I had twins in my daycare years ago, and my own hubby called the girls that since they were babies! When they were 4 (and big sis was 6) they did a theme Haloween costume. Big sis was The Cat in the Hat and twins were the Things. Super easy with just sweatsuits (cheapies from Target) with the accesories.

Get on Pinterest with an invite for the full site access and you will find a bunch of great easy ideas!
