Scooby Doo Party Ideas

Scooby snacks by printing out party information on one large
label and "Scooby Snacks" on another and sticking them on each
side of the cookie box.
Brown cards with black polka dots.
Buy plain brown cards and glue on a strip of turquoise ribbon
for Scooby's collar on the front of the card. Then cut out
gold rectangles and print SD on it and glue to the turquoise
Address the invitations Scooby Style by replacing the first
letter of the guests name with an "R" ... Susie would be Rusie,
Tom would be Rom.
Decorate the party table in brown and black with turquoise highlights
(such as the flatware, napkins and/or cups). Buy new plastic dog
dishes in black and brown and set them at every guests place.
Write their name on the dish with a black permanent marker (or you can
let the kids decorate their bowl as a party activity at the beginning of
the party when you are waiting for everyone to arrive). Serve the
guests ice cream and cake in the bowls when it's cake time and later
they can take the bowls home as a goody bag to hold their party favors.
Make name tags and/or place cards for the guests Scooby style by
replacing the first letter of their name with an "R".
Scooby Doo Necklace Collars
Let the party guests create their own Scooby Doo collars. Make
them from 1 1/2" wide turquoise ribbon or longer lengths of turquoise
string. Let the kids cut out and decorate their own dog tag from
poster board or cardstock. Punch a hole in the dog tag and hand it
from their collar.

Scooby Doo Party Games
Where's your bone?
A fun twist to the scavenger hunt is to let the guests hunt for
dog bones you have hidden around the house, yard, park or party area.
Use plastic bones or real dog biscuits and hide them around the yard.
Or make it a ghost hunt and hide plastic ghosts or suckers covered with
a small square of white fabric and tied with a ribbon to resemble a
ghost. Before the party write down a number or symbol on a few of
the bones that you are hiding. The party guests who find the
"special" bones with the numbers or symbols win a small prize at the
Scooby usually ends up rounding up the
ghosts in his adventures ... and this game is a crazy representation of
just that! Blow up several white balloons. During game time
divide the kids into two teams and give teams a broom and three white
balloons. The first person in each team must take the broom and
herd the "ghosts" across the playing field, around a set turn around
point and then return. The next player takes the broom and herds
the balloons. The first team with all of their members to finish
the ghost herd wins. If a balloon pops during the game they must
run back again to the start and begin with a new balloon. Have
several blown up balloons ready for replacement near each team.
