Narnia Party: Mr Tumnus' Parcels

He was only a little taller than Lucy herself and he carried over his head an umbrella, white with snow. From the waist upwards he was like a man, but his legs were shaped like a goat's (the hair on them was glossy black) and instead of feet he had goat's hoofs. He also had a tail, but Lucy did not notice this at first because it was neatly caught up over the arm that held the umbrella so as to keep it from trailing in the snow. He had a red woollen muffler round his neck and his skin was rather reddish too. he had a strange, but pleasant little face, with a short pointed beard and curly hair, and out of the hair there stuck two horns, one on each side of his forehead. 
One of his hands, as I have said, held the umbrella: in the other arm he carried several brown-paper parcels. What with the parcels and the snow it looked just as if he had been doing his Christmas shopping. He was a Faun. And when he saw Lucy he gave such a start of surprise that he dropped all his parcels. 
"Goodness gracious me!" exclaimed the Faun."

Jayden requested a Narnia party after reading several of the books and so a Narnia party it is! For party bags we put a few trinkets inside of some brown paper and wrapped it all up and tied it with string. We attached some fun little twisty straws to the outside of the packets

We put a few sweets inside & a balloon. I marked one with a red marker that has sugar free lollies inside so the birthday boy won't have to worry. He was delighted to finally get to pick some twisty straws, now to keep him from drinking milk with them!
