  • 40 people wow!! Keep it purpetual fun. Have people come in the room to a cut cake prepared / but cut before, and maybe even plated out, or have cupcakes. It's cool to have cupcakes that are bunched together into a heart. Put pink icing on them . and little heart decorations.
    For fun or games just have lots of cute bags of fun items for the little ones.
    I see more and more of these at the birthday deco. isle at Walmart. Like the cups, and plates, napkins, and favors. If you want to rent a place, theirs always those gaming / children fun indoor pizza/ videos/ and they set up and clean up. Chuck E. Cheeses' or Top Dog, or A Bouncing room, ; skating room,; they usually have package deals with 20 or more children and includes the favors, and all the clean up. You just pick out the size of the cake. Bouncing rooms are neat if their are older children.

  • To go cheap and still have happy guests, just have them bring in certain items on a list. But it's possibly better to have disposable stuff and some donations of either money to help buy things, or donations to bring to the party. .

    Church basement rental. $20 /a 2 hr. party slot. of time. 1 Covered dish per guest. Reheat things in the kitchen in their basement equipment. . All you need to earmark guests is to make a list of popular items, and as you call have each one checked off and let them choose which giving them all the options, and use them all.
    Example :, 1 Drinks and cups.2 /Covered dish of sloppy joes, rolls. 3/Salad. Ham/ deli sliced 2 lbs. 4./ Cheese 2 lbs. deli sliced 5 Paper plates,napkins,plastic forks, knives, spoons. 6. Baked beans. 7. Ice Cream. 8. Chips,pretzels.

  • My daughter will be 2 two days before Valentine's... and she's a Pooh FREAK! We did the little pink Pooh's 1st Birthday theme for her last year.

    So, if you do come up with anything cool, let me know. We've got to come up with a NEW Pooh theme this year.

  • Winnie the Pooh Birthday Party Games

    *Pin the Tail on Eeyore: For this classic activity, you'll need a picture or poster of Eeyore, grey felt, scissors, tape and blindfold.

    Cut the grey felt with scissors into tail shapes (enough for each guest). Place double-sided tape on tails so they stick.

    Mount Eeyore's picture on the wall. Have the kids stick their tails on Eeyore where they belong. (Use blindfold, but if the younger kids are not comfortable with wearing one, don't insist.)

  • Winnie the Pooh Birthday Party Games

    Piglet, Piglet, Eeyore!: This is Winnie the Pooh birthday party variation of classic "Duck, Duck, Goose" game.

    Have the kids sit in a circle. The birthday child begins by walking around the circle tapping each guest's shoulder lightly while saying, "Piglet!"

    When the birthday child says, "Eeyore" the child who has just been tapped must jump up and chase the birthday child around the circle. If the birthday child gets all the way around the circle and sits in the empty space without being tagged, then Eeyore becomes "it." Continue playing until the kids are ready for a new activity.

  • Pooh Bubble Contest: Give the kids tubes of bubbles and have them sit in a circle. Have one party host armed with a ruler. Everyone must start making bubbles using bubble solution and wands. The host then runs around measuring the bubbles to find the largest.

    *Buzzy Bees: Let the kids play an old-fashion game of Tag.

    *Bouncing Tigger: For this Winnie the Pooh birthday party game, you'll need a stuffed Tigger toy and a blanket. Have the children hold on to an edge of the blanket and toss Tigger into the air.

  • Hidden Honey: For this Winnie the Pooh birthday party game, you'll need 20-foot pieces of yarn (1 for each guest), bags of honey-flavored candies or small toys (wrapped up with a honey pot picture taped to the outside), paper, and scissors and crayons/markers.

    Before the party, attach a candy bag or small toy to the end of each piece of yarn. Hide the bags/toys in drawers, cupboards, under sofa pillows, etc. Then slowly stretch each length of yarn around the room, wrapping around furniture and intertwining with other pieces until you've used them all.

    Attach the name of a guest to the other end of each piece. Then invite the kids to find their names and follow their threads to discover "hidden honey" at the end.

  • Musical Bear: Seat the kids in the circle, and put on Winnie the Pooh theme music. Guests pass (or push) around stuffed bear while music plays. When you stop the music, player holding the bear wins a treat.

    If the same person wins more than twice, ask that player to give the treat to someone without a prize. (Alert guests about this idea before the game begins.) Continue until everyone has one or two treats.

  • *Story Time with Pooh: For this final Winnie the Pooh party activity, you'll need "Pooh's Grand Adventure" book.

    Have the children sit together and listen as you read to them a popular Pooh story. For added entertainment, have another party host pantomime some of the story as you are reading.

    As a variation, consider turning one of the easy stories into a puppet show. Go behind a couch and use different Pooh characters to tell the story. Finger puppets are easy to create by gluing or stapling colored pieces of felt.
