Woody, Buzz, and all the Toy Story characters!
The party games and ideas are centered around the Toy Story
theme and you will find lots of great ideas to mix and match to
make the perfect party for your child! Great ideas for:
Toy Story Party Games
Mr. Potato Head Race
Guests race to put together their potato heads before the other
team. Buy several Mr. and Mrs. Potato heads and set up at least 2
per team. At the start set up the bodies of the potato heads
and at the other end of the playing field place a basket with the potato
head parts. Teams line up one after the other and the first
person in each line runs to the basket, picks out a piece and then runs
back to the start and puts their piece on the potato head. Then
the next person in line does the same. The team who completes
their potato heads first win. For older children and more of a
challenge put both teams pieces into one basket.
Rex's Dinosaur Egg Hunt
Before the party fill and hide colorful plastic eggs with candies or
small Toy Story toys and
hide around the party area. Give the guests something to use
when they are searching for Rexs' eggs like a small basket or paper bag.
If you want to give out bigger prizes then will fit in the eggs number
the prizes and then write the number that corresponds with the prize on
a piece of paper and place it inside some of the eggs or write the
number on the outside of the eggs with a permanent marker.
Hamm Piggy Bank Relay
This is a fun relay for children over the age of 3. You will need
two large piggy banks, a plastic pool filled with sand or water and over
150 pennies. Fill the pool with sand or water and
place the pennies in the sand - mix them up in the sand so they are
harder to find. A distance from the pool set up the two
piggy banks on sturdy tables. Divide the guests into two
teams and have them stand behind the piggy banks. One at a time
the teams must go to the pool, find a penny and run back and
place it into the piggy bank. Then the next person in line does
the same thing. Keep the relay going for a determined amount of
time - 5 or 10 minutes - and then count and see which team has the most
pennies in their piggy bank.
Woody's Sherriff Dress up
For this fun relay style game kids will divide into teams and one at a
time put on Woody's Sherriff clothes, tag their teammate, run and take
off the clothes and then tag out and the next person in line starts.
Before the party set out two piles of similar clothes that have a
western or sheriff theme. Some examples are western shirts, vests,
boots, cowboy hats, bandanas, belts, sheriff badge, jeans, etc.
Teams line up and the first person runs to the pile of clothes and puts
on everything in the pile. They then run back to where their team
is and tag the next person in line. After they tag their teammate
they run back to where the pile of clothes was and take everything off.
Then they run back to their team and this time when they tag the next
person in line that person takes a turn and runs to put on the clothes.
Continue until the whole team has completed the relay.
Army Man Drop
You will need plastic army men and a tall bottle with a 3 - 4" opening.
Ask the guests to try and drop the plastic army men in the opening
of the bottle while standing over it.

star wars and
horse theme pages also have fun games that
would fit nicely with the Toy Story 1, 2 or 3 theme.
Toy Story Activities
