The Sky Above
Create a cutout of the moon and clouds from white poster paper, decorate with glitter and hang from the ceiling with ribbon.
Pile up pillows with fun colored pillowcases.
Buy inexpensive white pillowcases, fabric paint and stamps and let guests stamp a personalized design on their pillowcases.
Some Dreams Last Forever
Supply blank notebooks with a plain cover, scraps of colored paper and magazines for cutouts and stickers. Using glue and decoupage, the kids decorate their own notebooks, then use them to write down dreams.
Have all the guests sit around in a circle. The birthday person starts off by whispering a silly phrase or tongue twister only once to the next person. That person repeats the message to the next in line, and so on around the circle. Finally, the last person announces the message, which in most cases will be laughably different from the original!
Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me
Before the party rent several favorite kids' movies, then record famous lines or scenes from them onto a cassette. At the party, play the tape and let guests take turns trying to name the movie title and artists.
Fun in the Dark
Hand out glow-in-the-dark stickers, have guests stick them on their PJs, then turn out the lights. The person who's "it" has to try to tag someone, using the stickers as a guide. Beforehand, be sure to clear the room of anything that could cause injury.
- Decorate a popcorn bucket with each guest's name and colorful stickers. Fill with candy, a package of unpopped popcorn and an eye mask for sleeping.
- Remind the kids to take home their pillowcases and dream notebooks.
Not all activities or party ideas are recommended for all ages. For the safety of all in attendance, no party should be held without adult supervision.
