Birthday Activities for a Horton Hears a Who Party

Horton Scavenger Hunt
Just like Horton looking for his clover you can send out the birthday party guests on their own scavenger hunt.  Use our free Scavenger Hunt List that has two great scavenger hunts to choose from for the party!  Use the list as it is or add a few items related to Horton Hears a Who such as:
A picture of an elephant
Clover
Dr. Seuss book

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! You will need: Cotton balls, Bowl,  Blindfold and a Spoon for each team or player.

 

 

 

 

 

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!
Two bowls
Cotton balls
Chop Sticks

 

 

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.  For more fun games see our party games page
