Party Games and Crafts

  • Pin the Blue Hair on Thing 1. Have a large cutout of Thing 1 and get some blue felt, blue cotton, to pin on Thing 1.
  • Go Fish is perfect for all ages so it's perfect for that mixed age party and everyone is a winner! This can also be your goody bag favor if you don't care for making individual bags and filling them.
  • Win a Goldfish game. Find cups and containers and ping pong balls at Dollar Tree, craft stores or WalMart craft sections. Line up on a table and toss ping pong balls into the containers. Winner gets a goldfish. Put goldfish in small containers with distilled water and cover. Attach a small bag of fish food and fish care if you desire. This also can serve as your party favor!

The Cat in the Hat

"You will see something new.
Two things. And I call them
Thing One and Thing Two.
These Things will not bite you.
They want to have fun.
Then out of the box
Came Thing Two and Thing One!"
