Thing 1 and Thing 2 Birthday Theme

Fun ideas for a Thing 1 and Thing 2 birthday party theme.  Great theme for kids of all ages, siblings or twins!   Mix and match these fun birthday party ideas for a Thing One and Thing Two party.

An easy and fun way to make invitations is to buy blank cards that are red on the outside.

Take a small piece of light blue feathery garland (use the downy type feathers) and hot glue it across the top of the card. 

You can also buy large round labels (at any office supply) and stick 2 of them in the center of the red cards.  Hot glue a small piece of the lt. blue feathery down to the top of the circles.  Write (or print on your computer) on the stickers "Thing 1" and "Thing 2".

  Party Decorations
The birthday party theme colors should be light blue, white and red. 
Set out red tablecloths and place large white circles that are cut out of fabric or felt around the tops of the tables.  (You can also reverse this and use white tablecloths and red circles.)  Use white, red or light blue solid plates. 

On the party tables and around the room place small glass containers (like small fish bowls) filled with red, white or light blue stones or marbles.  In each container place fresh carnations in white and red.  Around the top of the glass container hot glue some of the light blue feathery garland.  Set out clear glass vases filled with large blue and white feather plumes. 

Make a quick and easy birthday garland by printing out the letters for "Happy Birthday ____" (child's name) and then use clothespins to pin them to a light blue feather boa.   

Party Activities
Thing 1 and Thing 2 Bank
Make a fun bank by covering small containers that have a lid with red felt or scrapbooking paper.  Glue on light blue feathery garland around the top of the lid.  Have an adult cut a hole in the top of the lid where money can be inserted.

Picture Frames
Let guests paint wooden picture frames with red paint and then decorate with sparkly gems in white, red and light blue.  Hot glue light blue feathers to the top of the frame.  

Thing 1 and Thing 2 T-shirts
Buy red t-shirts and iron on a "Thing 1" or "Thing 2" white patch in the center or let the party guests paint their own with fabric paint.  This is a fun way to separate teams for party games - before the party make up shirts for both Thing 1 and Thing 2 and let the party guests decorate with their name.

Thing 1 and Thing 2 Party Games
For these fun games have party guests split up into two teams.  For each team make up large white circle stickers that say either "Thing 1" or "Thing 2" and have the teams wear them to show which team they are on. 

Pin the Hair on the Thing

Place a poster or a big drawing of Thing 1 or Thing 2 on the wall.  Give each guest a small piece of light blue "hair" made out of construction paper or poster board.  Stick tape to backs of each guests "hair" and write their name on it. Blindfold the children and spin them gently around. The party guest who tapes their "hair"  nearest to the top of the "Thing's" head wins!

Tag Games 

Play these tag games with a new twist ... have 2 kids be "it" and call them Thing 1 and Thing 2!

Red Dot Tag Game - Make several bases that players can use to be "safe" for a short time while being chased.  The bases can be made out of large red cushions, poster board or red fabric.

Freeze Thing Game - When tagged by a Thing the players have to freeze. They can't move at all until another player unfreezes them. After the "things" freeze every player they pick the people to be “it”.

Team Tag

 Instead of 1 child who is "it" choose two children to hold hands and be "double it" ... Thing 1 and Thing 2!  They must hold hands during the time they are it and have to try and tag people as a team.
