Little House on the Prairie Invitation Ideas

Quilt Invitation

Decorate plain note cards with squares of scrapbook paper glued on the front in a quilt pattern.  

Quilt blocks
in the invitation send a 6" x 6" (or whatever size you choose) square piece of fabric and ask the guest to decorate the fabric and also put their name on it.  Ask them to bring it with them to the party. 

During the birthday party let the guests sew together their fabric squares to make a starting quilt for the birthday child.

Little House Party Decorations
Decorate party tables (picnic tables work great!) in blue and white gingham table cloths.  

Place artificial wildflowers in glass or metal containers on the table - tie a pretty ribbon around the vases. 

Decorate with fun "old west" items such as wagon wheels, hay bales, old lanterns, covered wagons, etc. 

At each place setting put a tin cup (find them at outdoor stores in the camping section) and put the tableware and napkin inside tied with a gingham ribbon.

Hang brown butcher paper on the walls and draw "logs" with a marker.

Little House on the Prairie Activities

Take the birthday guests on a hayride.  If you do not have access to a trailer you can fill the back of a pickup or large wagon with hay. 

Pony Ride or Petting Zoo
Let children experience animals that Laura and her family would have had on the farm. 


If the party will be during the evening a campfire is a great treat for children.  Roast hotdogs and make smores.

Make homemade ice cream
Let the party guests make their own ice cream for the party . Check videos on for several different ways to make homemade ice cream - they have instructions for making it in a blender, plastic bag and coffee can. 

Little House Crafts
Paper Dolls - Print out free paper dolls from the internet or buy several paper doll books ( a great book is "Little House Paper Dolls" - find it on Amazon) and let party guests play with them. 
Make candles - there are great kits available that don't require melting of the wax.
Make necklaces - Set out different colored beads and string and let guests make their own necklaces.
Buy several small beginner cross stitch kits and teach guests how to cross stitch.


Little House on the Prairie Party Games

Jacks are timeless and fun to play.  Teach the party guests how to play - Instructions for playing Jacks.

Jump rope
Teach party guests how to jump rope several different ways - Instructions and rhymes for jump rope  

3 Legged Race
Divide party guests into teams of 2.  When they are standing side by side tie their middle legs together.  Then all the teams line up on the start line and race to the finish line.  First team across wins a prize.
