While in Montana, my mom and her sister (my aunt Lisa) planned a fun party for the kids, a hunt for BigFoot! We all laughed so much, it was a blast! This would make such a fun little boy’s birthday party. All the adults were cracking up as the kids went through the obstacle course to get their Official Big Foot hunting license.
To start, we had all the kids gather around to listen to my Uncle Jim tell stories about Big Foot and show the kids pictures of BigFoot. He then played audio recordings of BigFoot. The kids might have been a little scared learning about BigFoot.
To earn their Official BigFoot Hunting License, they each had to go through 3 challenges of Big Foot Fear Factor.
1. Yetti Spaghetti – they each had to dig through a big tub full of cold cooked spaghetti and find the gummi worms in the spaghetti while blindfolded.
2. BigFoot Toe Jam – while blindfolded they had to dig with their fingers in a big tub of cooked oatmeal and find “Bit O’ Honeys” (the toes) in the oatmeal.
3. Sas- Squash – for this challenge, they had a relay with teams and the goal was to “sas-squash” (Sasquatch) water balloons. Here’s a funny video from this part of the challenges. We still can’t figure out how Aiden’s green water balloon makes it into the bucket below without popping, it’s really crazy!
After all the kids earned their licenses, they all went out to hunt for BigFoot!
They had signs up all around that read: “BigFoot Crossing” that were nailed to lightposts.
My BIL Bryan ran across the street way up the road covered in a big brown blanket. This was their first BigFoot sighting. All the kids were scared and they screamed. When they made their way closer to my Grandma’s home, they found the REAL BigFoot (tee-hee), my brother dressed up in an actual big foot costume. He jumped out of the trees and made them all jump. We all laughed. It was so funny!
It made for a very fun afternoon, and it would make such a fun birthday party!
Now do you believe?!
