Backyardigans Party Ideas

Play a few rounds of Story Add On. For those not familiar with this game, it begins with someone (preferably an adult) who begins a story by saying out loud to the group ONE sentence. The next person must say another sentence, continuing the story. Continue this around the room until everyone has had at least one turn to add to the story. Make sure to have someone taking notes as the participants contribute - this would make a fun story to put in the Thank You cards!

Check out different books from the library about the Backyardigans and all things adventure (undersea exploration, Egyptian Temples, the Amazon, being a spy, etc.) and set these up as your table centerpieces. They look great and don't cost a cent :)

The Backyardigan theme is SO easy to work with because each episode involved using your imagination to travel all over the world and all throughout time. Have your party activities and games reflect that eclectic aspect - have an Egyptian game followed by a spy activity, etc.

Borrow a few DVD players and TVs and play a few different episodes of the Backyardigans TV show at different places in your party area (check your local library before you start renting them.) The volume doesn't need to be turned up on them - they make great decoration as the scenes change! These make great prizes for the end of the party, too (assuming they aren't library copies you've used)
