|Sugar Plum Fairy Birthday Party Ideas
Fun ideas for party games, activities, party food, decorations,
and more all with a Sugar Plum Fairy theme!
After a magical journey through the
snow forest Clara and the Nutcracker arrive at the Land of
Sweets. They are greeted
by the Sugar Plum Fairy.
After they tell the Sugar Plum Fairy about their
adventure, the Sugar Plum Fairy is impressed with Clara’s
bravery and the Nutcracker’s heroism.
In their honor the Sugar
Plum Fairy gives them a lavish festival in the Candy Castle.
Sugar Plum Fairy Party Games
this relay race game guests are divided into two teams. Each team
is given two sheets of colored paper (heavy cardstock is best).
Across the room set up a chair or a big flower that shows the kids where
they have to run around before they go back to their team. The
fairies can only use the 2 sheets of colored paper to move across the
room. They will step of one, put the other in front of them, step
onto it, pick up the one they just stepped off of and place it in front
of the one they are standing on. They continue like this until
they have gone around the flower and back to their team where the next
person in line takes a turn.
Sugar Plum Fairy Freeze Dance
Sugar Plum Fairy Relay Race
Party guests play freeze dancing on a floor filled with
purple and white balloons. Gather
the party guests in the balloons and tell them to dance while the
music is playing, but when the music stops they must freeze in
the position they were in until the music starts playing again
... then they can unfreeze and dance.
Before the party begins blow up lots and lots of white balloons
so that they completely cover the dance floor. Kids really
this game and dancing around kicking through the balloons.
Remove any popped balloons pieces right away.
For this relay race game you will need lots of tutu’s, 2 tiaras, ballet
shoes, lipstick and other fun or crazy items that ballerinas would wear.
Divide the guests into 2 teams. Each team lines up one behind the other
and waits for their
turn to do the relay. On the other side of the room set up a basket filled
with the tutu’s and other items - one basket
for each team. From each team girls race one at a time to the basket,
put on the items, run back to the starting line, then run back to the
basket and take the items off … then run back to the starting line and
tag the next team member
to go. All items must be in the basket before another girl can start. This
game is even more fun if you have several
(4 or more) tutu’s that the teams have to put on during the relay race.
Tippy Toe Musical Chairs
Played similar to musical chairs. The only difference is that the
players must tippy toe
around the circle to the music. For a fun variation where no one is
“out” …. remove a chair each round, but let the girls stay in the
circle. They must find someone to sit with. This is a funny game
especially near the end when everyone is trying to fit on one chair.
Sugar Plum Fairy May I?
Played like Mother May I … except all of the steps are ballet steps.
Choose one girl to be the “Sugar Plum Fairy” (mother)
and have her stand at one end of the game playing area. Have the other
girls stand on the opposite side facing her.
at a time the “Sugar Plum Fairy” calls the girls by name and says .. “Suzy,
take one twirly step forward”. Suzy has to reply “Sugar Plum Fairy May I?”. And
the “Sugar Plum Fairy” answers “Yes you may”. Suzy then takes one step toward
the SPF in a twirling fashion. For every girl the number of steps and type of steps
should be different. Some examples are: baby steps, leaps,
twirls, steps in position 1 thru 5, etc.
Sugar Plum Fairy Draw
Party guests try to draw different Nutcracker themed objects
while they are blindfolded. Give each player a piece
of paper and a pen, pencil or crayon. Have them put on
their blindfold and ask them to draw a nutcracker. Then
tell them to take off the blindfolds and see what crazy pictures they
come up with! Play
several times. Great for an
Icebreaker game at the beginning of the party when kids are arriving.
*If you don’t want to use blindfolds the kids can put the paper on top
of their heads and draw that way.
Ideas for pictures: Nutcracker, Christmas Tree, Mouse, Gingerbread man,
ballerina, fairy, candy cane, star
Sugar Plum Fairy Party Activities
Christmas Theme Scavenger Hunt
Have the party guests go on a
Christmas scavenger hunt.
Our Christmas scavenger hunt list has lots of fun items to find and is
free to print out.
Let guests build and decorate their own gingerbread
house. There are many gingerbread kits out now that contain 4
small gingerbread houses that you can buy, or simply use squares of
graham crackers and frosting (2 lbs. powdered sugar, 6 egg whites, 1
tsp. cream of tartar - mix together with an electric mixer). Set
out bowls of small candies like skittles, dots, gumdrops, etc. to
decorate the houses. This activity is better when done
at the beginning of the party so the houses will have time to dry a
little before they are taken home.
Decorate Gingerbread Men
Before the party make large gingerbread men cookies. During the
party set our frosting and lots of small candies that the guests can use
to decorate their gingerbread man. Wrap up and let them take home
as a party favor.
Sugar Plum Fairy Party Craft
Sugar Plum Fairy Tutus
- let guests make their
own Sugar Plum fairy skirt. Cut long pieces of ribbon that are big enough to
go around the child's waist with room left over to tie a bow.
This is the base of the tutu. For the body of the tutu cut
long strips of tulle in green, pink, purple and yellow about 2" x 3
feet. Lay the ribbon on a flat table and show guests how to fold
the tulle strip in half, place the folded loop under the ribbon and then
take the two ends of the tulle and put them through the loop. Pull
the ends so that the loop closes over the ribbon attaching itself into a
loose knot. Continue along the ribbon until it is full. Tie
skirts around the waists of the fairies. Pieces of ribbon can also be
cut into strips and added
to skirt with the tulle. For younger children make the skirts ahead of time
and let them add the ribbon. See our Tutu
party craft page for pictures and directions.
