Robin Hood Party Ideas
Robin Hood Theme birthday party including ideas for Robin Hood Invitations, Decorations, Activities, Games, Favors and Food.
Robin Hood Party GamesBow and Arrow Contest
Set up different targets for the party guests to shoot a bow and arrow at - use hula hoops suspended from trees with rope, large cardboard boxes with targets painted on them or set up objects on a tabletop for the kids to knock over.
Gold Coin Toss
Throw plastic gold coins into a treasure chest. Set the chest on the floor (or table) about 6 feet from the base line where the party guests will be standing.
Give them each 5 gold coins and tell them to try and get the coins into the chest. To move on the group must get a certain number of coins in the chest - a good challenging number is to multiply the number of pirates x 4.
They may have to try over and over to get the correct number in the chest … which will make it challenging.
Coin Search Relay
Help Robin Hood and his merry men find the kings hidden coins! Hide 100 pennies in a small pool filled with sand (or bubbles and water in the summer). Teams race to see who can find a coin, put it in their Robin Hood sack and gather the most coins at the end of 5 minutes. Play several rounds.

Robin Hood Party Decoration Ideas
There are two parts to the story of Robin Hood .... Sherwood Forest and Nottingham Castle. Make two separate party areas decorated like both Sherwood Forest and Nottingham Castle.
For Sherwood Forest: Decorate in forest colors - light and dark green, brown and orange or purple. Brown or green tablecloth with artificial vines and flowers in the center. Green and brown streamers and balloons.
Cover a playhouse, swing set or tent with a tarp or brown butcher paper and make a Sherwood forest fort.
The castle can be as easy as renting a bounce house or covering medium size boxes with grey construction paper and building a structure.
