His invitations were homemade using Microsoft Publisher and had a picture of a baseball player on it, and read, "It's GAME FIVE for Ryan". We also spelled out F.I.V.E. as an acronym:  "Five Is Very Excellent". On the inside of the invitation we had a poem:    Come on out to a party/Come on out for some fun/We'll have some hot dogs and Cracker Jack/And give the piñata a super big whack/So let's root, root, root for our Ryan/If you can't come, it's a shame/'Cause it's ONE, TWO, THREE times the fun at our birthday party game! We also made up simulated baseball tickets on our computer with the party details (Ryan age 4 vs. Ryan age 5, address/date/time, and "Section 5, Row 5, Seat 5")

We used baseball cards and baseball-themed items from our son's room (pillows, books, pictures of him from his t-ball team, t-ball trophy, baseball caps, etc.). We also made a banner for Ryan, using a Chicago Cubs logo: "It's lil-(Cubs logo) 5th Birthday!" (We did that because he's our lil-Cub!). We found some inflatable baseball glove chairs at Oriental Trading Company, which made great kid-size seating.

Cake: We did a baseball cap cake. It starts with an oval brim, made from half a tube of sugar cookie dough, rolled out into a big oval and baked in the oven, then "glazed" by putting it on a cooling rack and pouring microwave-melted white frosting over it.  The top of the hat is a yellow cake mix (pound cake version) baked into an oven-safe bowl.  Cool and invert onto the brim, then frost and decorate with icing and M&M's. We also made baseball cupcakes - frosted white and dotted with red M&M's for stitching.

Food: Throughout the party we had a concession stand open in our kitchen, featuring hot dogs, nachos, potato chips, grapes, carrot sticks, Cracker Jack, Big League Chew, Baby Ruth candy bars, and Butterfingers candy bars. 

Drinks: We found Gatorade sport drinks in small bottles (they even have clear ones, which make spills no big deal).  The price for each item was: ONE SMILE.

Games and Activities

As kids arrived, we had a "Welcome and Warm-up" table by the front door. They signed a "game ball" for our son, then posed with a baseball bat for a Polaroid picture and received an empty loot bag.  They then went through nine innings of fun!   Inning One: Baseball bean bag toss (a game we found from Oriental trading company) and collect a prize for the loot bag (we got lots of baseball party favors from Oriental Trading Company and local party stores to use as prizes).  Inning Two: Baseball fishing.  We cut out round paper "baseballs" and put paper clips on them.  The kids fished for a ball using a magnet on a string tied to a baseball bat.  When they "caught" a ball, the backside would tell them what they got (strike out - try again, base-hit, home-run, etc.) and they would get a prize. Inning Three:  Instant replay. We had a Playstation II game that used an iToy camera, so the kids could simulate playing baseball on television, and they got a prize.  Inning Four:  Pitch to the Catcher. We found an inflatable "catcher" from Oriental Trading Company, and the kids would pitch bean-bag baseballs into his net and get a prize.    Inning Five:  Pitching and batting practice outside in the backyard. We had a t-ball and a pitching net set up in the backyard; they would play for a while and get a prize. Inning Six:  Baseball Limbo.  We gathered everyone together and played "Limbo" with a baseball bat.  As they came through the last round, they collected a prize.  Seventh Inning Stretch:  We sang "Happy Birthday" and cut the cake.  Eighth Inning:  Baseball piñata, which they whacked (of course) with a baseball bat!   Ninth Inning:  Everyone gets presents!  We gathered the kids together on a green area rug which had rubber bases on it to look like a baseball field.  My son sat in a chair at home plate and opened his presents. Then we gave presents to the partygoers (in addition to their loot bags):  their picture, framed in a foam baseball-themed magnetic frame (kit came from Oriental Trading Company), and a soft rubber baseball (got a set of them inexpensively at Oriental Trading Company) that said, "You made my party a HIT!  Thanks!
