The Wizard of Oz Theme Party

How about a ‘We are not in Kansas anymore, Toto party?’ The Wizard of Oz is a great theme for a child’s party, and can be used for both boys and girls.  The kids can follow the yellow brick road to a fun and entertaining event.


Wizard of Oz invitations:
 

You can get invitations for this theme on the internet, or even make them yourself. You can take emerald green paper, cut it into postcard size, and glue a cut out of a yellow brick road and blue sky onto the green paper. On the front write “Follow The Yellow Brick Road” to Emerald City (your child’s name here ) house. On the back, write all the details, such as, RSVP to the grand wizard, etc. for the party. Also include on the invitation that each child should come dressed as their favorite Wizard of Oz character. This will add to the fun.

Wizard of Oz Decorations:

 Make an amazing party area with lots of emerald balloons, streamers, and confetti. Have a yellow brick road on the floor made from banner paper, yellow plastic sheet, or paint the footpath with bright yellow chalk. Have a huge banner that says something like “Come One, Come All, To The Land Of Oz”. Put little dollhouses or playhouses down with paper crepe made witch’s legs and ruby red hoes sticking out from under it. You can even find old wizard of Oz posters online to hang on the walls. Have the movie, for a viewing of the show during the party.

Wizard of Oz Games:

 

– Pin the Heart on the Tin Man:

Cut out a tin man shape and paint it from cardboard or poster board. Cut out heart shapes and color them red, or use red construction paper to play pin the heart on the tin man. This is just like pin the tail on the donkey, so remember to use a blindfold. Spin each child around 3 times and let them try to stick the heart in the right place. The one that comes closest wins a prize.

Witch’s Broom Relay Race:

Paint two bricks yellow and put them at each end of the garden. Place a large X a fair distance from the bricks. As a starting point, divide the children into teams of two and line them up, one team at each brick. Give each team a broom and ball. Each player has to roll the ball with the broom all the way to and around the yellow brick and back to their line. Then the next player goes. The first team to finish wins the game.

Melt the Witch:

Place a drawing of a Witch on a wall or fence outside your home. Fill up a lot of water balloons, and let each child throw them to melt the witch. All kids love water balloons.

Wizard of Oz Bowling:

Get a bunch of empty water bottles. Tape images of different characters from the Wizard of Oz on the bottles. Place them a distance away from where the kids are standing. Give the children small to medium size balls to use to knock down as many bottles as possible, just like in a real bowling alley.

Wizard of Oz Party Favors:

Rainbow items: Stationery (pencils, erasers, notepad etc.), soap, pack of crayons, playdoh, set of rainbow coloured paper etc.

Blue and white gingham fabric used as a party or lolly bag.

Cupcakes topped with ruby slippers, wand or Toto
Magic Wand
Lion Mask
Star cookie cutters

Wizard of Oz Party Food:

Magic Wands:

Dip half of a pretzel sticks in melted white chocolate, and roll the sticks in rainbow coloured sprinkles.

Munchkin Munchies:

Serve miniature snacks such as mini sandwiches, mini cookies, mini crackers, mini sausages, mini cupcakes etc. You can also serve M&M’s, skittles, or any small foods.

Wizard of Oz Birthday Party Drink:

 Magic Oz Cubes:

A day before the party, pour different flavoured squash into ice cube trays and freeze to create freezer pops. You then add them to lemonade as magic coloured ice cubes.

Witch’s Brew:

Mix white grape juice with ginger ale and add green flavoured squash ice cubes to make the drink magically turn green.

Don’t forget to get the kids singing:

We’re off to see the Wizard
(follow the yellow brick road)

Follow the yellow brick road

Follow the yellow brick road

Follow, follow, follow, follow

Follow the yellow brick road

Follow the yellow brick

Follow the yellow brick

Follow the yellow brick road

We’re off to see the Wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz

You’ll find he is a whizz of a Wiz, if ever a Wiz there was!

If ever, oh ever, a Wiz there was, the Wizard of Oz is one because

Because, because, because, because, because

Because of the wonderful things he does

We’re off to see the Wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz
