First up was a chalkboard drawing for his birthday. One of the things his previous teacher did was a chalkboard drawing for his birthday. He loved that so I wanted to continue that in our Waldorf Homeschool. I worked off of the picture of Zeus in one of our Greek Mythology books. I am still very much working on my artistic skills (did I mention we are NEW to Waldorf homeschooling??) so be gentle.
Since Percy Jackson's favorite color is blue, his mom gives him a blue birthday party so that was pretty easy. Blue streamers, blue balloons, I found some gold star balloons which fit well. We cut out large yellow thunderbolts out of posterboard and smaller ones using my Cricut for the cupcakes. I also found these cute ceremonial cups at the Dollar Store that looked Greek to use on top of some cupcakes.

|Paleo cupcakes, gluten, dairy, and soy free. These are coconut flour based and to get the Percy Jackson flare, I made a blueberry puree and it colored them nicely.|
