and Ideas! If your child loves Wizard of Oz, Party Supplies by
Vicki is the place for for all of your Wizard of Oz Theme Party
Supplies and Party Decorations!
Ruby Slipper Relay
Before the party, cut four large slippers
from red posterboard (or you can color
any type of cardboard). Each slipper should
be approximately 12-15 inches long. Divide
your party guests into two teams and give
the first person in each line two slippers.
These slippers become the only thing they
can step on as they travel from the front
of the start/finish line, around a chair,
and back again. To begin, place one slipper
on the ground and step on it, then place
the second slipper on the ground and step
on it. Pick up the first slipper and repeat
these steps until the player has returned
to the finish line. They then hand the
slippers to the next player in line. The
team that finishes the race first, wins!
Catch the Cowardly Lion’s Tail
the children stand in a single-file line.
Each child holds onto the waist of the
person in front them. The child at the
front of the line is the head of the lion
and the child at the end of the line is
the tail. The object of this game is for
the head to catch the tail by chasing it.
When they succeed, that person becomes
the tail and the second person in line
becomes the head. This continues until
everyone has had a chance to be the head
of the lion. Encourage the children to
make their best roaring noises to make
the game even more fun!
Pin the Heart on the Tin Man
party, cut out enough red hearts so that
each party guest has one. On a large piece
of posterboard, draw a picture of the Tin
Man, with a heart drawn in red ink, and
attach it securely to the wall. Before
the game, hand each child a heart and tell
them to write their name on it (you may
even suggest they decorate it, too). When
you are about to begin, place a piece of
tape on the back of each heart. Use a scarf
to blindfold each child when it’s
their turn. Spin them around three times
and point them in the direction of the
Tin Man. The child whose heart is placed
closest to the hand-drawn heart on the
Tin Man’s chest is the winner! You
many want to play this game several times
and let a new person go first each time.
To make the game even more memorable, you
can pass out heart-shaped candies after
the last round!
For this game, wrap a theme-related
gift in tissue paper. Then, continue wrapping
layers of tissue around the gift, adding
a small prize (such as a sticker) with
each layer of tissue. Wrap over and over
again until you have one big present.
Seat your guests in a circle and pass
the gift around while playing music from
the Wizard of Oz. When the music stops,
the player who is holding the present removes
one layer of tissue. Continue until the
all layers have been removed to reveal
the surprise gift! For fun, use ruby slippers
filled with candy as the surprise gift
or a selection of candy so that everyone
gets to share the surprise gift!
Over the Rainbow Punch
Create a drink that’s
as much fun to make as it is to drink. Freeze
several of your
child’s favorite Kool-Aid® flavors
(berry, orange, lemon, lime, grape, etc.)
in ice cube trays. Only fill trays half-full
so more colored cubes will fit in each
glass. When it is time to serve, place
ice cubes in a large bowl and let each
child fill her own glass (tall clear cups
work well). Pour lightly-colored soda over
the cubes and watch their eyes sparkle
as they sip their Rainbow Punch.
Dorothy’s Delicious Lemonade
a refreshing party drink at home and let
the birthday girl help! Combine 2 cups
of sugar, 1 cup lemon juice, and the juice
from 6 freshly-squeezed lemons. Stir until
sugar has dissolved. Pour mixture into
a 2-quart container and fill with water.
Add ice to cool. Makes 12 (8-ounce) servings.
Pour lemonade into a punch bowl and add
a few drops of yellow food coloring for
intensity. To make your guests feel like
extra special little ladies, place miniature
paper umbrellas next to the punch bowl
and let each girl top off her drink in
Glinda’s Magical Wand Sandwiches
We guarantee you won’t need Glinda
the Good Witch to help make these tasty
sandwiches disappear. Use a cookie cutter
to create star-shaped sandwiches. (Peanut
butter & jelly, or cheese sandwiches
work best). Arrange sandwiches neatly on
a platter and use thinly sliced carrot
sticks to create the wands.
Ham & Cheese Roll-Ups
favorite brand of hot dogs, cheese, and
refrigerator croissants. Slice hot dogs
lengthwise and cut cheese into strips.
Unroll croissants and stuff them with hot
dogs and cheese. Roll croissants back up
and bake as directed, or until golden brown.
your tablecover on your party table. If
your child has any theme-related toys,
you can add them to the table for a more
festive display. Cut several one-to-two-foot-long
pieces of curling ribbon. Curl the ribbon
by pulling it between your thumb and the
blade of your scissors. Lay the resulting
curls on your table for added color. Hang
balloons in bunches for the best effect.
If you choose to fill balloons with helium,
wait until the party day to ensure they
Use balloons to mark the party spot; hang
them on the mailbox, near the front door,
or tie them to the birthday child's chair
to mark the seat of honor.
Place balloons anywhere that strikes your
fancy. The more the better!
Gather six or eight streamers and attach
them to the ceiling in the center of the
party room (or over the table). Use a light
fixture over the table, if you have one,
as the center point for the streamers.
To create colorful two-tone streamers,
put two differently colored streamers back-to-back,
twist as you walk them to the wall, and
attach at shoulder height.
Smile for the Camera!
Be sure to take lots of pictures. You and
your child will want to remember this special
party. A helpful hint: Order extra prints
and send them to the parents afterward.
Remember, it's not necessary to have everyone
in each picture. Focus on small groups
and avoid posing all the photos. Candids
capture the laughter best!
