Last week we took part in a Dora and Friends Twitter party to celebrate the premiere of the new show Dora and Friends : Into the City. While the Twitter party was going on, we were having some fun at home too with a little party of our own! I thought I’d share some pictures of how we got on with our Dora and Friends activities at home.

We had lots of fun with a pinata, party games, Dora themed colouring, party food and of course watching the premiere of the new Dora and Friends show as it aired on Nick Jr. There was a count down running all day which added to the anticipation for our party goers!

This totally appealed to boys just as much as girls as they loved bashing it to get their goodies. This is actually the first time we’ve tried a pinata! It wasn’t super easy for the kids to break, and did take a while but was great fun and definitely something we will continue including in parties in future.

We had a red carpet for the “premiere” feel, and had fun walking down it with our special tickets. After that, the kids decided to sit on it to do their colouring! I thought why not, since it did give them a defined area for that activity and keep everyone’s colouring in one place so it worked pretty well.

If you would like some Dora and Friends colouring sheets or printables for your own kids, you can download some from here:

Our Dora and Friends party was a lovely fun filled afternoon.

We also used some of the party supplies (like the leis) to make a non messy tactile and visual sensory tub, which I will share with you all in a new post soon!
