You read about cops and robbers in the news- you see the cops out on the streets, helping people and catching the bad guys. It is great imaginative play for little kids- especially little boys! How fun is it to have a Cops and Robbers birthday party, complete with a line up photos, chalk outline of a body, and a Police Academy Completion Certificate! Stephanie of Spaceships and Laser Beams is the queen of boys’ parties and she did wonders with this police themed party for her little boy!
Stephanie said: Like lots of guys his age, my four-year-old has fun playing good guy/bad guy. A cops and robbers birthday party theme seemed perfect! I used our Cops and Robbers printable collection which features a comical policeman and a not-so-scary robber. The dessert table backdrop was made from an enlargement of our decorative paper and a cropped version of the pair from our thank you card. That duo starred on the cake, cake pops and throughout the party décor. They also encouraged a lot of role playing with the small fry as they took turns being the policeman and the robber! They especially liked the photo “booth” which was a mock suspects’ line-up.
After eating lots of treats, playing games and capturing the robber decals I hid around the yard, the kids went home with their own police kit favors and a stuffed animal police dog. My four-year-old thought “it was awesome, Mommy”…sweet words any mom would like to hear!
