    We had a great Dora/Diego party planned. However it rained. But if the weather had been nice it would have went something like this:

    I made Dora bracelets for all of the girls (from modeling clay, stretchy string, and a little jewel,) and the boys all got Diego “spotting scopes” that I bought online.

    We left part of our backyard unmowed and DH mowed a fun, curvy path through the thick grass so we could have a Dora/Diego adventure. I bought butterfly nets $1 per net, and the kids were going to go to our tree, pick up coins, then go through the maze to a Dora pop up house and put the coins in the sombrero, then go through the house to a little Swiper and say “Swiper No Swiping,” to get by, then lastly we had a butterfly pull-string piñata.

    We had quesidillas and other mexican finger food and got two cakes, one with Dora and the other with Diego.

    For favors I made “The Map” out of felt, googley eyes, and puff paint. I made a small coloring book with Dora and Diego images and personalized them to thank everyone for coming to our party.

    Even though it rained we had a blast with it inside too.
