Nor was their teacher's request to only send healthy snacks (no cupcakes!)... Inspired by the post at bentology, I made piggie spinach tortilla sandwiches with garden cream cheese spread and not-healthy candy eyes. The birds were crackers and provolone cheese, with carrot beaks, not-healthy candy eyes, and seaweed eyebrows. Crouching Mother, Hidden Toddler's tutorial for painting cheese is here.
live action Angry Birds game. I covered boxes with butcher's paper to make them look uniform, got some piggie stuffies from the party store, and ordered some new Angry Birds Star Wars stuffies to throw at them and knock them all down. The kids worked as a team to build up the structures and took turns hurling the angry birds.
Angry Birds bowling game, but my attempts with the paint I had were not successful. Happily, Mama had some plastic bowling pins on hand, so we used those and a ball I meant to draw a bird face onto, but I ran out of time. The kids never noticed the lapse in theme and loved the game, so I'm going to count it as a win.
