007 Spy Party!

This posted last year on Oriental Trading Blog 
I received supplies from Oriental Trading in exchange for this post.
 007 Spy Party!
A Double Zero Seven party is the perfect theme for a seven year old!  My son wanted a spy party and this was perfect!
 Let Oriental Trading help you with the finishing touches for the perfect SPY party!

Make a fun I Spy game for the kids as they arrive at the party
 Each guest got a take home bag filled with toys and goodies!
 Make table decorations with things around the house.
We used 6 paper rolls and Red Tissue Paper
 Tape 2 of the rolls together
(or use paper towel rolls)
 Wrap them in the tissue paper and secure with tape.
 Bundle the 3 dynamite sticks together.
Add some twine out one end with hot glue.
 Wrap in black electrical tape.
The perfect dynamite table topper!
 Make a top secret treasure hunt with clues
Decorate the table with briefcases, cupcake stand and Oriental Trading extras!

Viking Chess Kubb Game!

Have you played Kubb?  It's a super fun outdoor yard game!
There's a great overview on Wikipedia with the instructions that I'm not going post here.
 But it's a great game and easy to make!
It would make a great gift too--maybe for Father's day!?
 You need:
1 King Piece: 12 inch 4 by 4
10 Kubbs: 6 inch 3 by3
6 Batons: 12 inch 1.5 inch dowels
Stakes and string to mark court
 We used a chop saw and cut all the pieces down to size.
 Measure, mark and cut.
Use eye pro!
 12 inches for the king!
To make the cool pattern of the king,
The saw blade is set at a 45* angle.
Set at 2" and cut.
 Quarter turn the king and cut again...repeat for each edge.
 Then set the blade stopper as close as possible to the blade
This will create the cool crown on top of the king.
Cut all four sides.
 Then set the stopper at 4 inches and cut all around the neck.
 all four sides.
 then set the stopper so the blade matches up with the other cut you did on the neck.
I didn't measure this one...so just line it up.
 Then cut all four sides.
This gives it the perfect neckline.
 Gorgeous little King piece!
Fun to make, once you get the hang of it!
 Dowels for the batons...smaller dowels for the stakes.
 My hubby added some fun decorative patterns and runes with a Sharpie marker!
 Set up the game and play!
 We made some fun ones with logs too!

Great gift idea!
Lots of fun too!

Broccoli Nachos!

 Broccoli Nachos!
If you like broccoli, this is amazing!
You will need one head of broccoli per person.
Well, okay, you can cut them up and share...but we each had our own.
Also, cheese, crumbled bacon and green onions.

Place the washed broccoli heads in a baking dish with 1/2 cup of water
and bake at 350* for 20 minutes.
 Remove from oven and place a handful of cheese on the top of each head.
Place back in the oven for a couple minutes.
 Long enough to melt the cheese.
 Then add the crumbled bacon and green onions.
Then drizzle honey mustard, blue cheese or ranch dressing on the top.
 Seriously so good!
It's healthier than nachos and great if your people like broccoli!
