     Crowdtap gave members the chance to host a party to celebrate the release of Dreamworks new movie Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted.  We got to download a party kit complete with masks, face paint instructions, coloring and other activity sheets, games, decorations, a recipe for a cake (Marty's Zebra cake) and more.  
     Originally, we had scheduled our circus-themed party for today.  We were going to have some of our son's friends over, along with his cousin and some other children from the neighborhood.  We were going to have cake, popcorn, drinks, activities, face painting, games and more; with the final act being a trip down the road to see Madagascar 3, which was released in theaters yesterday.      
     Unfortunately, our son got sick early yesterday morning, and the next few weekends are booked up, so we had to cancel.  Since he was so disappointed, as was his father and myself, we decided to have our own family party instead!  
     Our son loves to color and draw, so he was in charge the decorating.  I love to bake and this was to be my first attempt at making a marbled cake.  So while I was busy in the kitchen, my son was busy cutting, coloring and decorating.  
     Once I got the cake in the oven, we all sat down for lunch which was grilled cheese sandwich's cut to resemble lion's heads, popcorn and fruit juice.  After lunch, we played "Pin the Tail on Gloria", did some dot-to-dots and played tic-tac-toe, all of which had templates included in the digital kit.
     Finally, the cake was ready, cooled and waiting to be iced.  It came out perfect!  Armed with a tub of white icing and a variety of multi-colored sprinkles, my son took over this part of the cake-making process.  A big, sticky mess later, it was ready to eat, and it was delicious!
     Since it was raining outside, this turned out to be the perfect time of the day to have our Madagascar marathon!   Ready with pillows and blankets, we all got together in the den and watched Madagascar 1 and 2!  It was very relaxing and very entertaining!
      So, while it didn't turn out as planned, our Madagascar 3 party did turn out to be a great day spent together as a family!  Thanks for the party kit, Dreamworks and Crowdtap!!
