Notice there are a variety of styles. The font on the first 2 invitations (Style 3 and Style 2) is the Disney font they provide. Invitations 2 and 3, both Style 2, have different fonts. Invitations 4 and 5 are different styles and different fonts.
We wanted to show you these invitations first so we could give you an idea of the possibilities. While there are 9 styles, I find the ones above the most versatile.

Does your child want to be part of The Croods family?
If Yes, then Crood-ify them!
Turn your child into a prehistoric cave dweller using a smartphone Free App called Crood-ify Yourself. It's fun, easy to use and has choices of different characters and backgrounds.

How Much FUN Is That?
These instructions are for use with an iPhone, but it works with any smartphone, except the steps might be different. The idea is to have the picture you want on your phone so you can upload it to the Croods photo booth.
Here's how you crood-ify yourself:
A fun activity might be to send instructions with the invitations to have all your guests crood-ify themselves. Then bring pictures to the party and hang them up on a line (or string from one side to the other)for all to see. You can also play games or have kids add their picture to a collage.
Note: Not everyone might have access to smartphone or computer. Have blank Crood-ify characters by taking a screen shot of the screen right before you choose your picture. You know, when it looks like a photo booth and it has the face cutout. Have children bring a picture of themselves where their head is no bigger than a quarter (25 cents). Or print out a larger version but don't cut out the face space. Instead have your guests draw themselves.
I've always tried to be very careful to include everyone in the party. No one wants to be left out so make doubly sure that everyone has the things needed to make their crood-ified picture, otherwise print blank ones and let everyone draw their own face.
Another fun idea is to include cavemen eyebrows (made from felt or sticker paper) with your invitation and instruct all your guests to wear their eyebrows to the party. If you can, include an extra pair for adults who plan to stay at the party. Oh, this can be so much fun!
Magazine Cover Invitations?
YES, YES, YES!!! Your child on the cover of "Any" magazine you want because you can make it yourself! Make these creative and fun birthday invitations for your Croods party.
If you would like something simpler yet creative, make a birthday magazine cover as your invitation.
Whether you decide on the caveman cover or the birthday cover, type the birthday information right onto the cover and print on card stock.
A photo tutorial will be available in the coming days but if you can't wait to get started, go here and start playing around with the editing options. Have the photo you want to use ready on you computer for easy access.
Look at these "The Croods" birthday invitations, aren't these shades invitation fun? Much more creative than your traditional party invitations and way cooler (as my daughter says) than your traditional party invitations. They also double as a mask by making small hole punch on either side and adding stretchy cord or thin elastic.
Note: Adding the elastic will make the "shades" appear more like a superhero mask as it will wrap around the front of the face but it's still fun.
Download and print the front of the shades and then choose either the brown or sand colored back. The "brown back" matches the front but you need a pen or marker for dark surfaces like a gold or silver thin-tipped sharpie. The last 2 images below are the same back "fill-in-the-blank" template except for their color. The sand colored template was designed to save on ink. Use regular pen or marker.

Once you have downloaded and printed your front and back shades pieces, glue them together with the 2 printed sides facing out. If you want to take an extra step, add a piece of vellum (translucent paper) in clear or colored and glue the vellum in between the front and back pieces to make a more realistic pair of sunglasses.
You can also use a clear plastic book report cover (the one with the sliding bar on the side). Cut 2 rectangles slightly larger the eye opening and glue.
