       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.

         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.

         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...
