First up, do you know the actual history of why we have this celebration? If the answer is no – do yourself a favor and head over to Confessions of an Overworked Mom to get the entire scoop. It’s also a great refresher if you’d like to explain it to the kids but are a little rusty. You can click right HERE to head over and catch up on the short and sweet read.

After the history lesson, run around and excite in a festive scavenger hunt for kids! We found this clever idea over at Food Fun Family. Most kids L-O-V-E a scavenger hunt, and most adults L-O-V-E the energy they help kids burn. J Get the free printable and enjoy by clicking right HERE.

Statue favors are always a hit at any award show themed party! Not only will they make for dazzling décor but they will also help to ignite the “party” vibe throughout your event. Your guests will get a kick out of them and take them home to display on their own mantles – at least for a little while.
