Today, we take to the skies with Disney’s PLANES Fire & Rescue.
When we started this series, I mentioned to you that my son has been fascinated by everything F & R for over a year now. This fascination was further amplified when he watched Disney’s Fire & Rescue Planes movie. So he asked if he could have planes and helicopters for his birthday. So what is a mother to do? It it tough when your child wants party with a theme from a recently released movie. You know why? Because chances are gifts & goodies in that theme are not yet available in party stores. (I had the same experience with his Olaf-themed party last year.) However, it is a great opportunity for a crafty Mom to put her creative foot forward. I just wanted to share with you the few things I did for his party.
We start with the party shirt. I looked everywhere but couldn’t find Fire & Rescue fabric, so I settled with two options for my boy.

Fire & Rescue 5: The Party Shirt
The Idea: create a birthday party shirt for a 5 year old who loves PLANES Fire & Rescue. I will show you two party shirts that I came up with despite the lack of any Fire & Rescue Disney licensed fabric..
Shirt 1 – RED = Fire & Rescue
I bought this red shirt from Mothercare and the iron on number 5 from Spotlight – both from Plaza Singapura. Went home ironed the number onto the shirt and voila! a red hot shirt for my birthday boy.
Shirt 2 – The Patched PLANE shirt
This is a mother’s best effort to create a special birthday shirt with planes (even if they are just passenger planes)
And here is the finished PLANES party shirt for my 5 year old.
Lucky boy – he ended up with one Mama-made shirt for his early birthday school party, and another one for his official party with family.
So do…remember that whether preparing for a party or any other creativity challenge – all you need to put in is your best effort, and don’t forget the secret ingredient – LOVE! [remember “The Simpsons: Flaming Moe’s (#3.10)” (1991)]
