Clara's Paw Patrol Birthday Party

Hi!  I'm still here!  I've been too busy to blog lately, but Clara just celebrated her 4th birthday and the Paw Patrol party was a HUGE hit so I thought I'd share.  PS - I was not paid by Nick Jr for this post.  I just loved all their free stuff!!!


Pin the Badge on Skye
This free poster came from the Nick Jr. Paw Patrol website.  I taped the poster together and also taped it to a piece of pink poster board, then laminated it.  I cut out the badges and laminated them as well so everything could be reused.

Clara's first attempt was a little bit off ;)

Photo Booth Props
The photo booth props were also free printables on the Nick Jr. Paw Patrol Website.  I cut out and laminated the Skye masks as well so that they wouldn't tear.  I found the pink elastic cord at Michaels.
I didn't laminate the Paw Patrol face cut out but I did tape it to white poster board.

I made the backdrop for the photo booth using brown craft paper and circle punches to make the paw prints.

(see Part 6: Templates for info about signs)


Table Decor
The Paw Patrol confetti on the tables came from a Nick Jr. Paw Patrol Potty Chart free printable. I made the table runner using the same materials from the photo booth.  

Birthday Wreath
Click here to see how I made our birthday balloon wreath.


I found these cute dog bowls at Dollar Tree.

I had a local baker make this cute cake based off a picture I found online.  We used Clara's toys as cake toppers.


I found Clara's outfit (pants, shirt and bow) on Etsy.  Unfortunately, when I received the outfit two days before the party the shirt had been made incorrectly!  She's only turning 4!!!

The Etsy shop couldn't send me a replacement in time for the party so they just refunded my money.  Luckily I have wonderful friends who came to my rescue.  One friend loaned me a Paw Patrol shirt to match Clara's outfit.
And another friend had this cute matching shirt made at Zoey's Attic in time for the party!
I'm so grateful to have awesome friends in my life :)

All of the signs that you see can be tailored for your party and purchased.  See Part 6: Templates below.

Station 1: Clara's Pet Adoption Store
I wrapped a cardboard box in a green plastic table cloth.  Then I used white card stock to make the fence.  The Adoption Certificate and Pet License came from the Nick Jr. Paw Patrol website.

The girls are obsessed with Beanie Boos!
 I cut out the Adoption Certificates and Pet Licenses and taped them to card stock.

Station 2: Clara's Animal Hospital

Station 3: Clara's Pet Grooming
I found the Paw Patrol lanyards at Party City.  I used elastic hair bands as a pet collar to attach the lanyard like a like a lease.

Station 4: Decorate a Dog Bone
I used a template to make the dog bones and found the stickers at Dollar Tree.  I used white card stock to make the bones.

Station 5: Make your own Pup Tag
I found the Pup Tag template on the Nick Jr. website. I used card stock and thin ribbon for the pup tags.
I also printed off some coloring pages from the Nick Jr. website. I found the Paw patrol bucket holding the markers at Party City.

Found your post via pinterest & just wanted to say THANK YOU! Our daughters 4 year old party is next week and I've been struggling to find decorations - I never would have known where to look! THANK YOU!

Aw, such a cute party. I especially like the vet check-up.
Thanks for all the information in the post, will definitely be using it for my daughter's 4th Paw Patrol party.

Cathy said...

You're welcome!! Your daughter will LOVE it!

Wow such great ideas, THANK YOU! Seems like the pups are a huge hit for 4yr old parties! I checked the nick Jr site for the adoption certificates & pet license but was not able to find them. By chance do you still have the files from your download or possibly the direct link, if they are still available.
Also, as far as the templates, you are referring to the cards you printed for the checkup station, etc correct?

Cathy said...

Hi Jami! I made the adoption certificate, the pet license was from Nick Jr. I can try to find the link for you later today when I'm home. And you are correct about the templates being the signs for the stations. The 4 year olds sure do love Paw Patrol!

Cathy said...

Hi again Jami! I'm so sorry but I looked all over the Nick Jr. website and can't seem to find their adoption certificates and pet license. They must have taken them down from their site. Good luck with your party! Cathy

What a darling party! Thank you for sharing all the links and ideas!

Hi there. Thanx for the ideas. When you say you laminated the printable...what exactly did you do?

Cathy said...

For example, I printed out a color copy of the Skye masks, then I cut out the masks. There is a teacher supply store near me that has laminating services. I had the masks laminated and then cut them out again. Laminating just made it more sturdy so it can be reused.

I am a single father and my daughter threw this at me out of the blue. I had not really any clue that she liked Paw Patrol and her birthday is a month away.. So of course I started scouring the web to find things on Paw patrol and to read up as much as I could. I found so many things that were for sale and I just cant see myself paying $60 for something made of paper just to never use them again. Thank you so much for providing so much information and for free. You were a Party saver!!

Cathy said...

What a nice comment! I'm so glad this helped you and I hope your daughter has a great birthday!
