The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe Party - Eight Year Olds Guests are asked to come as a character from Narnia: either English children or Kings and Queens of Narnia, Mr/Mrs Beaver, unicorn, Santa, dwarfs, faun, Aslan, wolf, tree spirit, mouse, elf or fairy. The Birthday Girl at our party came as The White Witch.
1. Beading Arrivals: As the children are arriving, they bead a bracelet from Narnia to take home with them. After everyone has arrived the games begin.
2. Scavenger Hunt: Children are divided into two teams by picking the name Lucy or Susan out of a basket. Team Lucy and Team Susan are the teams. Each team is given a large basket with a list of items from Narnia that are hidden outside around the property. There are 2 of each item hidden and they are tagged Lucy or Susan. The teams can only take items with their team name. (Boys can change the teams to Edmund and Peter).
There are 12 items hidden: Bags of taffy, swords, juices of fireflowers, bows, crowns, lanterns, capes, sacks of potatoes (wrapped in burlap and string), scroll of parchment paper with clue for next game, flutes, Narnian books, loaves of bread. The first team to collect all of their items wins the game. The children are to keep the basket nearby for they provide clues to the next game. The parchment paper has an answer to one of the 20 Questions but each team has a different answer to a different question.
3. Team Lucy and Team Susan answer 20 Questions on Narnia Each team is given a wipe it board and marker. The birthday child stands in front of them with a list of 20 questions. As the questions are asked each team writes their answer on the board. They can consult with each other. The birthday child times them and tells them when it is time to reveal their answers. She has a black board or wipe it board to tally the correct answers.

6. Hot Wand - Who stole the White Witches Wand? Children sit in a circle and music plays. We taped music from The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe and when the music stopped whoever holds the wand is "caught" and is out of the game.
