Alice in Wonderland Party Decorations
Fun Alice in Wonderland decorations for an at
Set a large table with mismatched teacups and saucers, teapots,
chandeliers and mismatched chairs - so that the
chair heights are different. Use a white table cloth and scatter decks of
cards on the top. Use odd shaped serving
dishes with bright colors. Attach small labels (like old fashioned price
tags with string) to the food and drinks
that say “Eat me” and “Drink me”. Place several clocks that are stopped
on the party table (pocket watches too).
Paint signs that say “This Way” and “That Way” and hang them
throughout the birthday party room. Decorate the walls with playing cards. Make a
chessboard design on the floor and scatter chess pieces on tables.
On the branch of a tree (real or fake) place a Cheshire cat - or use
just his grin.
Hang Chinese paper lanterns above the table for a festive look.
Tie white and blue helium balloons outside on the mailbox.
Buy a child’s tunnel from the toy store and place it leading to the
front door. Place a sign that says “Enter through
the rabbit hole”. Guests have to crawl through the rabbit hole to enter
When birthday party guests arrive for the Alice in Wonderland party they
can make a nametag for themselves. Spell their name backwards on
the nametag and them let them decorate it. Have the guests use
their backwards names for the rest of the party. For
example: Mary would be spelled Yram. See our other fun
Make a fun Alice in Wonderland craft that

Alice in Wonderland Party Games
Tea Party Alice in Wonderland Style
Set up a tea party for the Alice in
Wonderland party guests with mismatched tea cups, saucers, chairs,
napkins and tableware. Serve lemonade or Kool-Aid without sugar and
let the guests serve themselves from the sugar bowl with either
granulated sugar or sugar cubes. For a fun treat set up a
chocolate fountain with strawberries, pretzels, marshmallows, etc. to
dip into the chocolate.
Great game for an outdoor party. Set up the croquet game and play a round or two.
Chess is relatively easy to learn ... and kids really like it. Teach them
the basics and they can play during the meal.
Pin the smile on the Cheshire Cat
Played like Pin the Tail on the Donkey, except kids will pin a smile on
the Cheshire cat face. Trace or draw a large Cheshire Cat onto
poster board. Cut out big smiles (matching the smile of the cat
you drew) and cut them out. Number them and place
tape on each smile. Blindfold the guests
and see who can place their smile nearest to the
real one on the cat.
Timed Scavenger Hunt
Make the kids hurry through it.
Continually tell them ... "you're late, you're late!
See our Scavenger hunt page for free lists, set up instructions and ideas for
neighborhood, mall and nature scavenger
Gather several chairs and put them in a circle facing out - put out one less chair then the total number of party guests playing the
game. The children will move around the chairs while music is playing. When the music stops they must
hurry and find a chair to sit in. The person who does not
get a chair is out and must sit out for the rest of the game. Take
one of the chairs away and start the music again. (You can give
the party guests who are out so they will have something to keep them
busy while the game
continues. ). Keep playing until there are twp guests and one chair left …
the child who sits in the last chair wins a prize.
Play a mixed up musical chairs game
- played just like the musical chairs game above except every round
only a chair
is taken away - no one leaves the game! The kids must start
doubling up and sitting on each others laps trying to fit everyone in
the chairs that are left in the game. The last few rounds are the
funniest when they have to try and get everyone in the same chair.
Alice in Wonderland Party Teacup Toss
For this game kids will try and toss ping pong balls into teacups. Set 5 teacups
about a foot apart in a line going away from the throw line on the
floor. The party guests will stand at the throw line and try and
toss a ping pong ball into the teacup closest to them. After they
make it into the first teacup then they move on to the next teacup in
line and so on until they have tossed their ping pong ball into all 5
teacups. Ping pong balls bounce a lot so you could also use bean
bags or small rubber balls for the game.
