Ni Hao Kai Lan Inspiration Board

A few weeks ago, my mom asked me for a favor. She had a friend at her workplace who was planning a birthday party for her granddaughter and was in need of some inspiration for either a Ni Hao Kai Lan party or a SpongeBob party. I think Ni Hao Kai Lan is a little girlier, so I went with that. 
There are several great Ni Hao Kai Lan parties on the blogosphere, so it didn't take me long to whip up this board!
A party with this theme can really be expounded upon with an Asian flair. Of course, no Kai Lan party would be complete without some Chinese lanterns! 
I love the trend of faux sushi for kids! But, if your child will eat sushi, then give 'em the real stuff! My three year old loves all kinds of things that most people would think was strange for a little one to eat. 
But, if not, then you can try these other options of Swedish fish "nigiri" or Peanut Butter and Jelly "sushi" roll ups! And you can't forget the fortune cookies!
