huge basic theme to the cartoon is feeling the freedom to
design something amazing using your imagination and teamwork.
In this spirit, as a fun and easy pre-party activity (something
for the kids to do while they are all waiting for the other
guests to arrive) is pick something fun to design (or a few
things such as a tree house, roller coaster, ice cream maker,
etc.) and have the kids design their own version of the ultimate
example of that creation. Let them use the imaginations in
the true Phineas and Ferb style!
spy adventures of Perry the Platypus is an integral part of
the show and part of what makes the show so popular. There
are lot of ways to incorporate a spy theme including a downloading
Themed Bingo Set. For over 100 spy theme party ideas,
The Phineas and Ferb cartoon has some very catchy songs in
each episode. Some of the songs contained within an episode
are actually more popular than the story that contains them!
Get your hands on any one of their CD's from the cartoon (a
Greatest Hits would be best) and play it throughout the party
- you'd be surprised how many of the kids know the words to
the songs! For added fun, you could also hold lip sync contests
using these songs from the cartoon.
Supply the kids with different craft items (i.e. paper, cardboard,
markers, etc.) and have them each come up with their own "-INATOR."
For those that aren't as familiar with the cartoon, Dr. Doofenschmirtz
(the villain) creates some overthought machine with which
he'll use to try and take over the Tri-State area. Each machine
ends in '-inator' such as "Turn-off-all-the-lights-inator"
- you can always guess by the title he gives it what the specific
machine does. Allow each child to not only design their own
but also have an opportunity to pitch the idea as a proposal
to Dr. D.!
you have several party guests, they'll enjoy this game involving
the reoccurring lines from the cartoon. Write these lines
on different pieces of paper (multiple copies of each): "Ferb,
I know what we're going to do today", "You are so
busted", "Whatcha doin'?" and "Why yes
I am." Now pass out equal numbers of each to the kids
(as much as possible.) The goal for the kids will be to find
all the others in the room who have the same line on their
piece of paper. The ONLY way that they can find each other,
though, is to say their line out loud. Eventually they will
all find each other. Everyone on the team who finds themselves
first gets a point, then the papers are re-passed out and
play resumes again. Play several rounds to allow each person
to potentially be on the winning team at least once. This
is a lot of fun to play and a lot of fun to watch!
