lives in a jungle, so your party area can be green and brown.
Make a "tree" by hanging brown streamers or packaging
paper from the ceiling. Hang green balloons or streamers for
the leaves and vines.
Play a hide and seek games at your Horton party. You can print
a picture of Horton and hide him somewhere in the party area.
The guests have to find him before they can play any other
Have a relay race to protect the speck! Find pink pom-pom
balls and use white spoons. Divide the kids into two teams.
Each runner must run with the pom-pom on the spoon through
an obstacle course, or around a point and back to the line.
Pass the spoon to the next person to continue the race. First
team to finish wins.
Make Horton ears for your guests. Before the party cut out
gray strips of construction paper for the headband. You'll
probably want to tape two strips together for enough length
to get around a child's head. Cut out two ears per guest as
well - and be sure to include a tab - a basic ear shape you
can find online in various places, or just hand-draw it. As
your guests arrive, wrap their head with the strip of gray
paper and tape it to the correct length. Then you can tape
the ears in the proper place so it looks "right"
on him or her.
at your Horton Party can be anything your birthday child likes
- but try giving it a Horton or Who-type name. Horton nuggets
or Nool Grool
maybe you can find some fun names in the
books. Try making clover shaped biscuits or cookies. Or cut
some sandwiches with a clover shaped cookie cutter.
Freeze some pink lemonade in ice cubes and drop them in a
clear soda or punch for a fun pink clover drink.
Check out Horton books at the library if you don't have any
and put them around the party area. You can read them during
the party, but they'll be good decoration as well.
