    Thing 1 and 2 Birthday 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!

  • "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!"
