Horton Hears A Who
Birthday Party Theme

Horton Hears a Who Party Ideas

Birthday Activities
Just like Horton looking for his clover you can send out
the birthday party guests on their own scavenger hunt. 
We have free scavenger hunt lists to print out here.  A
new spin on the scavenger hunt is the "Bigger Better"
hunt.  Send out two teams like you would a regular scavenger hunt only start both teams out with a small
item - a sucker, penny, paperclip etc.  For two teams
assign each team either odd or even numbered houses
so they won't be going to one house twice. 

Each team takes their object and tries to trade it for something bigger or better.  For example - at the first
 house they could trade their paperclip for a quarter
... then at the next house trade the quarter for a candy
bar ... and so on.  This is a really fun game and it is
exciting to see what the teams end up coming home with!  

Games for a Horton Hears a Who Party

Clover Ball Scoop
Set an empty bowl on a table and sprinkle small cotton
balls around the bowl. Blindfold the individual and hand him/her a spoon. Give him/her one minute to scoop as
many cotton balls into the bowl as possible before time is up!

Cotton balls

Clover Chop

Have the players sit down and give each two bowls and a pair of chopsticks. Fill one of the bowls with cotton balls
and players use the chopsticks to transfer the balls from
one bowl to the other.  The first player to transfer all their cotton balls wins!

Listen for the Who

For this game you will need two walkie talkies.  Hide one
of the walkie talkies somewhere in the house or yard
before guests arrive.  Before the game tell the party
guests that they must try and find the hidden walkie talkie.  The only clues they have is to listen closely for the
"Who's".  Have someone in the house make noises or
beeps on the other walkie talkie so it can be heard softly from the hidden one.  Make the children search for the noise.  First person to find it wins a small prize.   Kids
love this game so be prepared to hide it several times. 

Pin the clover on the elephant

Played just like pin the tail on the donkey - only use a
poster of Horton holding a clover.
