some VCRs from some friends and have different TV's playing
the movie throughout the event/party area. The great part
about this is that the volume does not need to be turned on.
The visuals alone are great. For the best effect, do your
best to stagger the movies from set to set (i.e. when the
guests walk around, the movie is at a different place in the
story on each TV set.)
movie posters from famous adventure movies. These can be purchased
through any number of movie poster companies online. For a
more economical approach, nab them from the Internet and print
them out on 8 ½ x 11 sheets of paper for 'mini' posters.
the guests into two teams and give them each a stack of candy
bars (only one of each.) Have them each come up with a story
that uses the names of every candy bar in their bunch. For
example, a story might go something like this "One day,
Baby Ruth tripped and made Mr. Goodbar Snicker." Afterwards
, have a spokesman from each team read their story to the
a more elaborate activity (but one that could take keep the
kids occupied for a longer period of time PLUS providing an
EXCELLENT take home gift) make a small 9", single layer
cake for each guest. Depending on the age of the guest, you
may want to front it first. Provide all different types of
candies for the guests to decorate their own cake. They can
make pictures, abstract designs or anything that their imaginations
come up with.
invitations, make golden tickets from your computer. Buy chocolate
bars (the ones in the foil wrap like Hersheys) and remove
carefully the chocolate from the foil. Place the gold ticket
inside and refoil the chocolate with the same foil (if you
removed it carefully, you should have a problem reassembling
the wrapping.) These are GREAT invitations and really set
a fun mood even before the party begins!
the party guests come up with their own wonderful magic creations.
Have them draw a picture of it and explain to everyone what
