Celebrating with a Mr. Men Birthday Party

May 9, 2016

Every year the Queen hosts at least three garden parties over the summer at Buckingham Palace. This year to celebrate her 90th birthday she is hosting an extra special garden party. As today would have been Roger Hargreaves birthday we thought it would be lovely to host a little garden party to celebrate his amazing work on all the Mr. Men and Little Miss books.

I’m sure that everyone has read and enjoyed at least one Mr. Men or Little Miss book in their lifetime, we have several of the books on the bookshelf. The one that is enjoyed the most has to be Mr. Fussy, this was a gift to Tigger from his pre-school teachers when he left last summer to start reception class. It sums him up perfectly and we all have a giggle as we read it.

Celebrating with a Mr.Men Birthday Party

The British weather is all over the place at the moment and despite best-laid plans to have a fabulous garden party in our new garden we ended up having an indoor party by the patio doors to at least be able to look at the garden whilst we enjoyed our party food, cake, and Mr. Men books.

The latest Mr. Men to be released is the Mr. Men Birthday Party

It’s Mr. Silly’s birthday and Little Miss Helpful is organising his birthday party, but unfortunately Little Miss Helpful isn’t as helpful as she sounds. Somehow or other things never quite turn out as they are meant to.

Will Mr. Silly’s birthday party be a success?

We loved this new Mr. Men book, it’s fun, it’s silly and the perfect addition to our party – It would actually make a great gift idea for children’s birthdays too

The Mr. Men Birthday Party book is priced at just £2.99 and is available from Amazon

Mr. Men and the Silly Birthday Party

Alongside the release of the Mr. Men Birthday Party book, you are also able to purchase a personalised book – Mr. Men (Your Name) and the Silly Birthday Party. A story library version is available for just £8.99 or a larger print book for just £12.99 – plus if you enter the code pblogger20 you will receive a 20% on all personalised Mr. Men books.

Dressing up is so much fun!

It wouldn’t be a party without dressing up, so we decided to make our own Mr. Men fancy dress costumes. Thankfully the sun was shining the following afternoon so we were able to do this in the garden.

Celebrating with a Mr. Men Birthday Party - Costumes

How to make Mr Fussy and Little Miss Chatterbox

Mr Men and Little Miss costumes are relatively simple to make, the hardest part is deciding upon which characters to choose. For Roo and Tigger, it was quite obvious which two characters we should make… Little Miss Chatterbox and Mr Fussy.

What you’ll need:

  • Large cardboard boxes (two sections per costume)
  • Scissors
  • Paint, paper or pens to colour
  • Glue
  • Ribbon or string to attach costume to child

How to make…

  1. Decide upon which Mr Men or Little Miss character you want to be, then either using the book cover or searching the internet for an image draw the outline of the character on the front segment of your cardboard box
  2. Depending on how you want to colour in your Mr Men you might find it easier to colour them first before you cut it out (especially if you have little helpers).
  3. Using the flaps of the cardboard box you can add extra detailing like hair, hands, shoes etc.
  4. Once your Mr Men or Little Miss is either painted, coloured in or covered in paper (pink wool for Mr Messy would be fantastic) add the detailing around the face, shoes etc with a black pen, then cut around the main body. Once you have done this use it as a template for the back of the costume on the back segment of your cardboard box
  5. The back of the costume should then be painted or coloured to match the front without the need for much detailing.
  6. Attach the string or ribbon to the shoulders of the costume, which can then be tied together to form a sandwich board type costume. You may want to add further string/ribbon to the side for added security.
