Narnia Party

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.

5. The War between the White Witch and Aslan The children ran around outside with the White Witch using her wand to  freeze the children.  If the White Witch tapped a child, that child was  frozen.  If Aslan breathed on the child, the child could move again.    There wer no winners or losers - just the chance to run around and be  chased.  

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.  Alternatively, the  person can be the slave of the White Witch with a task to perform: 10  jumping jacks, run around the house once etc.  

7. Cake and ice cream - presents and pictures   Everyone was a winner.  There was a basket of novelties and when a  team won, that team chose first, but the other team was able to choose  items also.  The novelties were from Oriental Trading  

Children arrived as: English children, Aslan, Fairy, Maid, Lamp Post,  Wardrobe, White Witch.  We took a group picture and stopped traffic  when the children arrived in their costumes.
