PRLog.Org - Global Press Release Distribution Free Indiana Jones Party Ideas By Party Depot Dated: Dec 17, 2008 Indiana Jones is back and ready to transform a whole new generation into huge adventure fans! Everyone will love this theme and all the super cool tips & tricks that go along with these party ideas to make your next party the most exciting ever. Invitations: Using brown grocery bags or brown butcher paper, cut out rectangular invitation sized pieces of paper. Crumple up each sheet and then dip each sheet into a bath of a strong tea solution. Lay flat to dry. Once dry, tear and burn the edges slightly to give it that an antique feel. Write all of the party details on the paper and roll up the invites to resemble a scroll. Wrap a piece of burlap around the scroll and tie with a piece of twine. Written by http://www.partydepot.ca - Party Depot Canada Decorations: the key is to have great decorations! First we must decorate our guests so make sure to request the guests come dressed in Indiana Jones gear - Khaki's of course! When the guests arrive, you can give them their very own Indiana Jones fedora. The paper or plastic ones work perfectly. Now on to the decorating of the party space. Whether its indoors or out, all of these ideas can be easily adapted. You want to get that outdoors, aged, exotic feel as Indiana is always visiting the most remote and creepiest areas of the world. Pitch a khaki, old army tents or you can even use some canvas sheets and devise your base camp and dining tent. Place tiki torches, tiki masks or any object with an exotic Asian, African or Egyptian feel around the yard or space. Dig out your Halloween decorations and pull out all your creepy, crawly items like skulls, bones, skeletons, bug, snakes and rats. If it creeps or crawls you should definitely use it! Hang old or distressed maps and travel posters of exotic cities of the world. Use the tea staining method to make a newer map look old and contact your local travel agency for any travel posters they have and are willing to give away. Decorate the party, present and food tables with burlap fabric and cover them with rubber snakes and rats and spiders. And lastly, make sure to have the Indiana Jones theme song or Movie soundtrack playing in the background. Written by http://www.partydepot.ca - Party Depot Canada Activities: Organize an obstacle course that ends with a treasure hunt. Break the Obstacle course into 3 stations. (1) Have the guests crawl through a spider cave to get to the mummy wrap obstacle. The spider cave can be made of 2 refrigerator boxes with their bottoms cut out and filled with tons of rubber spiders and webs. The mummy wrap is a obstacle where you must completely wrap a barbie doll from head to toe with toilet paper. You cannot advance until 100% complete. (2) Have the kids avoid being crushed by the giant boulder on their way to the Poison Dart obstacle. To complete this portion they must pass an area without being hit by the dreaded enormous boulder (exercise ball) rolling (by parent) straight at them on their way to the target. Poison Darts are Q-Tips dipped in red paint & blown through straws at a target. The Q-Tips are dipped in a little paint simply to show the target has indeed been hit and they may move on. (3) Have the players make their way through the snake pit before digging for the buried Sacred Stones. The snake pit is an obstacle of many snakes and creepy crawlies in a very small pathway that must walked, hopped and jumped through without being bit by a deadly cobra on their way to the sand pit to dig for the sacred stones. The sand pit can be a sandbox or any large container that can be filled with sand. This is the last portion is a a bit time consuming and must be completed a few days before the party...
