Indiana Jones Movie Marathon Party

What better way to enjoy a chilly winter day, than with a Movie Marathon?  With an Indiana Jones Movie Marathon, of course. 

The table is decorated with burlap and jungle vines, just what any Adventurer would find comfortable.

Taters of the Lost Ark is a total crackup.  He kept the party going and no one tried to eat him, although his distant cousin Tater Chip, was not so lucky. 

We had to have breaks between each movie and used the time for various activities.  Prizes were given throughout the day, based upon discovered, stolen and earned ancient golden coins. 

Indiana Jones kept folks enthralled for the entire day.  What else is an Adventurer to do?

To keep our guests entertained and from turning into Couch Taters (more relations to Tater's of the Lost Ark), we staged a Quest for an archaeological find in the woods, I mean jungle.  

Clues were scattered throughout the jungle, leading our Adventures deeper into the wilds and the danger lurking there.  We found signs of Natives, but not to worry, our Adventures came armed with their savvy jungle skills and man purses.  

To the surprise of no one, our Intrepid Explorers discovered the treasure after many dangerous minutes (that's hours to you people). 

Can't have a movie without popcorn.  Everyone knows that.

The snake pit was a big hit and got lots of use throughout the party.  Two inexpensive boxes purchased at Walmart and duct taped together (that's right) turned into a dark cave passage filled with snakes and spiders....but wait, there is treasure lurking as well.  

The kids had a blast crawling through the tunnel and risking life and limb to gather as many ancient golden coins as possible.  Fortune and Glory awaited and the reptiles were no match. 

It was a great party and after a long day of being Indiana Jones, it was time for that Dude to get some rest.

Have A Good One,

Pin It!
