Last year I got hooked on Doctor Who again thanks to the Kindle Fire the Husband got me for my birthday and Amazon Prime. I grew up watching the show but when the new episodes started I was busy being a new mom and to be quite honest, I don't even think BBC America was even offered my my provider at that time.
I have since watched all of the episodes. repeatedly. And, so has my son. Yes, to the detriment of my Husband our son is just as hooked as I am on Doctor Who.
My Doctor is Ten. My son - Eleven. Ah, well at least he likes the show.
This past March we had a Doctor Who viewing party to celebrate the return of the program and to hang out with out other Whovians. Since the 50th anniversary episode is quickly approaching I wanted to share some ideas on hosting your own viewing party.
|(9th Doctor said it isn't a party without bannasa and 10 agreed. The 11th Doctor did not like carrots.)|
I will admit that I am not all that into decorations.
The closest I got to it was a blue table cloth and bananas around a bowl of carrots but that doesn't mean that they don't exist. You can make your own like the fantastic pin of a Tardis out of painters tape or buy a life size cut out of the Tardis.
BBC's Doctor Who page has a couple things to print out like the Dalek victory poster and the Prisoner Zero wanted poster. Sadly nothing current.
What's a party with out food?
I made fish fingers cookies and custard. The cookies were a sugar cookie coated with graham crackers and boxed custard. I got the idea from Bakingdom but, I used store bought sugar cookie dough because I was short on time.
My girlfriend, fellow mom and Whovian, made a fantastic vegetarian chili and made Dalek cupcakes.
I think for the next party I am going to try some of these:
For the kids
Doctor Who is a kid's show after all so we can't forget to do something fun for them.
Coloring pages are always fun.
BBC's website has a few coloring pages and printouts of masks and the kids loved these.
Maybe a game to play while waiting?
