Wonder Pets Birthday Success

The Wonder Pets birthday party was a success and Parker had a great time. It was a homemade party because Nickelodeon has not yet produced any Wonder Pets merchandise. Not sure what they are waiting for - all of the other shows have a ridiculous amount of product. Anyway, we used red, blue, green & yellow plates, napkins, streamers, balloons, etc, had a craft area with WP coloring pages from Nick Jr & other animal stickers. I know there must be other parents out there trying to create a cool WP party so here's a list of some of the items that we created...
the "Tuck" pinata can be found here:
the fly boat:Parker's Dad made a flyboat out of the same stuff as the Wonder Pets...a red Frisbee, 3 purple marker caps, tinker toys for wheels & some other stuff from the toy tool box. very cool.
The fly boat cake & invitation:
The Games: "save the animals" Each partygoer got a chance to be like the wonder pets by searching into the tree to save an animal. The tree was stuffed with a variety of animals - from wind-up to plush. The "tree" started out as a cardboard box and I must admit it turned out better than I had imagined. I covered the box with brown paper and cut different size strips of various green construction papers & card stocks to make the branches. We also had a red WP cape and the idea was that the kids would line up and one at a time put on the cape and save and animal but it was more like a simultaneous rescue mission. Here's a peak at the rescue:
"Pin the wheel on the fly boat": We didn't even get to this one but here's a look and we printed out the wheels from the nick website onto sticker paper.The Gift Bags: Wonder Pet stickers printed from the official web site, a couple inside and one on the front of the brown paper gift bag, there is a cool little WP book binded together with yarn which I printed from the web site & the bubbles have a custom home printed WP label .
The decor: our building's community room always needs color. My friend Fran blew up pictures of each of the WP and made these cool portraits - which are not the decor in my little man's bedroom...It was an awesome party - Thanks to Teamwork!

I am having a Wonder Pets party this weekend and loved the hanging pictures of the team. I am having trouble. Can anyone walk me step by step on enlarging those images to print. I tried the NickJr site, but cannot locate individula shots.
Thanks in advance.

my friend used photoshop to isolate each wonder pet and she blew them up on a special printer at her office.

Thanks for the ideas! I'm working on a possible WP party for my DD's 4th birthday. I don't understand either why NickJr hasn't put out WP stuff yet!
