Amulet Birthday Party-The Avid Reader Turns 9!

My daughter loves to read...actually we all love to read. Our favorite adventure is a trip to a library! After Santa brought Amulet 1 and 2..well the rest had to follow. The Amulet Series is a graphic novel that my children have eaten up. To see a book trailer...check out The Stonekeeper.

Here...an attempt at an Amulet cake! We made a yellow cake with caramel frosting. Both recipes from the King Arthur Flour Baking Companion. I love that cookbook.

We had maps that lead us on adventures from the book.

Here a satchel full of needed items...party made Amulets, walking stick, sword, snacks, map, and word search.

Our first challenge was levitating seeds with our new amulet powers.

Sculpting Demon's Head mountain..a place from the book.

Here we had the challenge of eating Gadoba fruit off of the Gadoba tree. Joel did our party decor!! Another success: the house was transformed into places straight out of the book.

This character from the book...became our "pin the tail on the donkey" game. Instead we blindfolded the party goers and had them put pieces of "Cogsley" on the board. They were close!!

Super fun!!
