Those parents planning to throw a Dora the Explorer party for their kids should make up an organized list of needed materials and steps to having a completed party ready to go. Believe me; being organized can help make your party go a lot smoother.
Typical supplies you’ll need to decorate the Dora the Explorer party are Dora themed plates, napkins and silverware. These plates are paper and the silverware is plastic so you can easily clean up after the party. A Dora the Explorer themed tablecloth adds a lot of decoration while also serving a very practical purpose. Mylar Balloons with Dora and her friends on theme can float around the party space and add a lot to the atmosphere. Kids also love balloons and they will last for a few days after the party. A piñata can usually be found that is also themed after Dora the Explorer. It makes a great activity for the kids as well, but you may want to have that go on outside lest an over eager child hits the china with the bat.
You’ll want to order these items ahead of time, preferably a few weeks ahead of the party. That gives your order plenty of time to arrive and you plenty of time to decide where to put everything. Try to pick a room in the house that will handle excess traffic. If you don’t think you have enough room in the house then move the party outside. Put it in the yard or arrange it at a park.
To save yourself time during the party try to make as much of the food up ahead of time as possible. The cake can be made about a day or so ahead, along with deli platters and the like. Even foods such as casseroles can be prepared the night before the party and just popped into the oven a couple of hours before the party. The kids will love candy but to be careful how much you give out because it’s like adding a lot of fuel to the party.
