Is there any book more beloved than Where the Wild Things Are? Every time I see a list of the best-ever picture books, it’s always in the top five, if not the very top spot. And it’s the perfect party theme for anyone, girl or boy, baby or elementary school child. Who wouldn’t want a wild rumpus?
Here are some of our favorite ideas for throwing your very own:
Obviously, a cake is the crowning (no pun intended) part of a birthday party. This one is a showstopper, but surprisingly easy to assemble.
Remember how vines grew in Max’s bedroom? You can make them grow in your party too!
How’s this for the perfect party drink that’s super kid-friendly?
If you want something salty to balance out the sweet, try this ridiculously easy party snack!
In this day and age, a photobooth is practically a requirement. This one is easier than it looks and photographs amazingly well!
Use the alphabet or monsters or photos of the children attending and play this fun matching game with your guests.
This is the perfect activity for kids to do as guests arrive, since you can jump in and out easily! Or send sets home as a favor.
The perfect sign for the food table, don’t you think?
The guests and the birthday child all need some crowns! Have everyone grab one on their way in, and you immediately have a festive party!
A Wild Rumpus
Turn on some music, let every get their crowns on, and dance until they’re exhausted! Of course you’ll have to end it by saying, “Now stop!”
If these aren’t the perfect Wild Things favors, I don’t know what are.
