Introduction and Party Invitations
Dora the Explorer™ is one of the TV shows most beloved by preschool children between the ages of 2 and 4 years. Dora is a natural explorer who, with a little help from her monkey Boots, her Backpack, and a host of other characters, solves problems and teaches children shapes, numbers, colors, and even Spanish. With adventures and fun galore, this party theme will be a hit with boys and girls alike.
An easy way to include the boys in this party plan is to include Diego-themed ideas as well.
Send a Character Map Invitation. Fold a piece of cardstock into 3 equal parts so it can be placed in a regular-sized envelope. Use thematic language on the front:
If there's a place you want to go I'm the one you need to know. I'm the Map! I'm the Map! I'm the Map! _____’s turning __. For details turn to me! I'm the Map! I'm the Map! I'm the Map!
Hand draw a map – similar to an open map on the show – on the inside folds of the invitation. Draw three boxes that contain the information for the party: Date, Time, and Place. Outline the boxes in colors so that the information is easy to read. Include pictures of the places that the party guests will visit during your Star-Catching adventure: Bubble Garden, Puzzle Point, and Piñata Playground.
