Thing 1 and Thing 2
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.
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.
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
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.
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”.
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.
