Last month, deep in the Australian Bush, we had a little Possum Magic themed birthday party! Every Easter we go camping with my two sisters, their partners and children and my Mum. We go to the same camping spot every year. No amenities and no one else for miles (apart from the affectionately known “bogans” that set up camp with their loud music, generator, dirt bikes and dogs every year about 1 km down the road and who get kicked out by the rangers every year). You can see pics of previous Easter camping creativity here.
While we were camping my niece, nephew and husband all celebrated a birthday, so inspired by our location as well as Jackie from My Little Bookcase (thanks Jackie!!!), I organised a little joint birthday party based on a favourite Australian children’s book Possum Magic by Mem Fox. My family all rolled their eyes of course, knowing that I just couldn’t help myself where birthdays were involved.
We read the book and played pass the parcel with questions from the book.
