Indiana Jones Party

I hosted an Indiana Jones party for a special 7 year old's birthday. The guests received Indy hats and satchels when they walked through the door. Next, they created their own Sandy Candy creations. They played Pass the Skull and Mummy Wrap and had some lunch.
I got a replica of the fertility God that was in the first movie from ebay as well as a book with a dust jacket that looks like an archeology book written by Dr. Jones for the table props. The crystal skull is from Disneyland.

The table had lots of spiders, webs and snakes all over it as well.


After eating eyeball soup and other interesting delicacies, the guests search for coins in a vat of worms (spaghetti) blindfolded and they went through an obstacle course where the guests had to steal the skull statue, shoot the bad guy, crawl under a giant spider, swing across water and then out run a falling boulder and poison darts (straw wrappers shot by other guests). They finished their adventure by having cupcakes and ice cream.

The boys had a fabulous time pretending to be a great adventurer like Indiana Jones!

Great job and theme, I am all about girly things so a fun boys party would be hard for me. This one is done so cleverly.

I saw this party back when you originally posted and thought what a cute idea it would be. So, I saved it, and recently, my 9 year old nephew asked for a theme for his party and I thought this would be perfect. He agreed, but his mom doesn't think it can be pulled off under a budget. I was wondering if you could offer any tips/suggestions, and if you would mind mentioning where you purchased some items (such as the skull sipper cups). Thanks so much!
