Outdoor parties can require a little more planning, but Heidi imaginatively created a cool “treehouse” atmosphere at a neighborhood park. A DIY portable backdrop frame holds themed fabric and a DIY chalkboard sign at the park’s shadiest, least windy spot. Sturdy wooden crates prevent themed decorations—like oversized “reference books” (kraft paper-wrapped shirt boxes embellished with gold washi tape) and rolled maps—from blowing away. A picnic blanket and throw pillows make a cozy area for kids to decipher clues or just hang out.

Kyle’s Cakes’ jaw-dropping treehouse cake and perfectly coordinating cupcakes look great presented on a vintage folding table with a burlap runner. “Adventure Fuel” snack packs are full of brain food: pretzel sticks, carrots, cucumber sticks (Davey loves cucumbers), ranch dressing, a mozzarella stick, fruit leather, and a juice box—but before snack time, little adventurers took off on a scavenger hunt! Solving clues just like Jack and Annie, they collected their party favors (aka adventure gear): a red backpack (like Jack’s in the books), canteen, binoculars, and a homemade Adventure Passport Book with a cool branch pencil.

Heidi’s mom, an amazing first grade teacher who also runs a kids’ summer camp with her husband, helped lead party guests in fantastic themed activities inspired by books in the series. They made fossils for Dinosaurs Before Dark; acted out Mummies in the Morning by wrapping Davey up like a mummy; and searched for buried treasure, like Jack and Annie in Pirates Past Noon. Finally, as a nod to Midnighton the Moon, they made constellation creators out of toilet paper rolls and decorated them with stickers, markers, and paper. With a flashlight, it will project stars on the ceiling. After completing all the activities, kids got a “stamp” sticker inside their passports and took home a few more stickers, for all their future adventures!

The Magic Treehouse book series’ irresistible blend of magic, adventure, and mystery are extremely well-represented in this party’s decorations, party favors, activities. It’s the perfect celebration for both little readers and little adventurers, and it’s full of fun party ideas for any venue, budget, or age.
