Another birthday party idea.

For my son’s third birthday he wanted to celebrate with Buddy from Dinosaur Train, the PBS series.

Dinosaur train

I started with this cute invitation.  I made the head of Buddy with trusty Cameo.  I downloaded the little train from the Silhouette Cameo store.

I painted Buddy and the Conductor on some poster board so everyone could have their pictures made with the Dinosaur Train characters.

It’s amazing what you can do with some paper and some markers to make a great party.  It wasn’t expensive but the kids had a terrific time.
