Tea Party Alice in Wonderland Style
Set up a tea party for the Alice in Wonderland party guests with mismatched tea cups, saucers, chairs, napkins and tableware. Serve lemonade or Kool-Aid without sugar and let the guests serve themselves from the sugar bowl with either granulated sugar or sugar cubes. For a fun treat set up a chocolate fountain with strawberries, pretzels, marshmallows, etc. to dip into the chocolate.
Great game for an outdoor party. Set up the croquet game and play a round or two.
Chess is relatively easy to learn ... and kids really like it. Teach them the basics and they can play during the meal.
Pin the smile on the Cheshire Cat
Played like Pin the Tail on the Donkey, except kids will pin a smile on the Cheshire cat face. Trace or draw a large Cheshire Cat onto poster board. Cut out big smiles (matching the smile of the cat you drew) and cut them out. Number them and place tape on each smile. Blindfold the guests and see who can place their smile nearest to the real one on the cat.
Timed Scavenger Hunt
Make the kids hurry through it. Continually tell them ... "you're late, you're late!
See our Scavenger hunt page for free scavenger hunt lists, set up directions and fun and easy ideas for neighborhood, mall and nature scavenger hunts.
Alice in Wonderland Party Teacup Toss
For this game kids will try and toss ping pong balls into teacups. Set 5 teacups about a foot apart in a line going away from the throw line on the floor. The party guests will stand at the throw line and try and toss a ping pong ball into the teacup closest to them. After they make it into the first teacup then they move on to the next teacup in line and so on until they have tossed their ping pong ball into all 5 teacups. Ping pong balls bounce a lot so you could also use bean bags or small rubber balls for the game.

Wonderland Musical Chairs
Gather several chairs and put them in a circle facing out - put out one less chair then the total number of party guests playing the game. The children will move around the chairs while music is playing. When the music stops they must hurry and find a chair to sit in. The person who does not get a chair is out and must sit out for the rest of the game. Take one of the chairs away and start the music again. (You can give prizes to the party guests who are out so they will have something to keep them busy while the game continues. ). Keep playing until there are twp guests and one chair left … the child who sits in the last chair wins a prize.
Play a mixed up musical chairs game - played just like the musical chairs game above except every round only a chair is taken away - no one leaves the game! The kids must start doubling up and sitting on each others laps trying to fit everyone in the chairs that are left in the game. The last few rounds are the funniest when they have to try and get everyone in the same chair.
