So my Link-obsessed soon-to-be four year old has insisted that he needs to have a "link party" and nothing else will do.  However, other than revamping his link costume, making appropriate headgear, Wind waker Link and logo on his cake, and hunting for rubies like they were easter eggs--I'm at a loss.  Can any of you crafty chicas think of anything else 2-10 year olds can play (not everyone has to do everything) that is Zelda related?  I did think about make swords and shields for everyone but I couldn't think of some sort of reason for them nor am I sure it's a good idea to hand the younger ones pointy objects.  Please help!!  No idea too weird, I'm desperate!

Okay so no one had any ideas but we made due with whatever my brain could muster.  My son loved his party and I can up with some things for them to do (some worked, some just got ditched because it was like 100 degrees and windy).
Here's his cake (first attempt at frozen buttercream transfer)

His costume, that he didn't wear because it was too too hot.

I set up some archery (or bones and arrows as my dear boy says) and slingshot targets with things from the games--we ditched the whole hunt for rupies they started to blow away in the wind.

And the birthday boy...never without a sword down the back of his shirt "like link mom"

Good fun.

Your son is adorable! His costume is wonderful and the cake looks so good. 

I clicked on this thread, hoping to find some ideas for a Zelda party for my brother. He's seventeen so his party would be a bit different, but I love the hunting for rupies idea.
 I laughed when I looked at your son's cake because my brother's name is Noah, too!  Cheesy It's not so funny, but I had a little giggle over it.
