My nearly 4 year old expressed to me that for her 4th birthday she would like a Dragon Party. As I discussed this further with her, she wanted to dig up dragon remains in the back yard like a paleontologist would and do some dragon crafts--make a necklace, paint an egg. So began the planning for a not just a party but an event!
I take pride every year in creating unique one of a kind invitations for my children's parties and knew that this party invite could not be like any I had created before. After much searching through dragon books, I decided that her invitation needed to take the form of a newspaper announcing the discovery of Dragon Remains!
To create this I downloaded an old map of our area, some photos of paleontologist's tools and a skeleton of a dragon [which would later serve as pattern for the skeleton that got planted in the back yard for our budding dragonologists to find]. The newspaper is complete with the article about the discovery, ads, and classifieds--where the actual invite can be viewed under the Employment Opportunities section!
