panning for gold

The best party game we played at our Cowboy party was this homemade crafted game called panning for gold. Collect or purchase peanut sized stones and spray paint gold. If you do not already have a sandpit, fill a large plastic clam with play sand. Purchase aluminium foil plates and puncture a number of holes with a pencil into each one – this will allow for the sand to pass through but leave the gold behind when shaken from side to side. Before guests arrive, hide the gold stones in the play sand. Give each guest a plate as well as a small bag and let the gold rush begin.

sheriff school

For Bailey's Cowboy Party, we welcomed the guests to Sheriff School. Here the kids would enrol into a class and learn a skill or two and hopefully by the end of the day become fully fledged Sheriffs (badge and all).

Our first lesson was Square Dancing. For older kids you could probably teach them a real move or two, but as the kiddies were little we pretty much played your standard stock musical statues to Cowboy music.



Our 2nd lesson was Corn Tossing. I have been throwing kids parties for years and the idea of tossing a themed item into a tin/bucket/box/hoop is always a hit. In this case, I found some fake corn cobs and chillies and the kids had to aim them into the galvanised mini buckets. Easy and so much fun we played rounds and rounds of this!



Join us tomorrow for the next training lessons...

GOOD PLAN - Trail Mix Bar

trail mix

At your Cowboy Party, another fun idea instead of a Dessert Table, is to set up a Trail Mix Bar. Here full up glass jars and bowls with different types of nuts, raisins, pumpkin seeds, choclate chips, M&Ms, chocolate roacks (found these at a specialty Chocolate store like Sweets from Heaven), mini marshmallows and pretzels. Guests can then scoop up their favourites into little paper or cellophane bags and tie closed with red twine and the free printable party circle favour tags from our book For Good Times. 


Our mini candy buffet kit works great for this!
