Scooby Doo Birthday Party Ideas for the Cool Mom
So, your kid has been dropping hints about his desire to adopt Scooby Doo birthday party ideas for his upcoming special day. You can only ignore his hints for so long before you must think of cool but easy and quick ideas for such a themed party. Well, stop your panicking because we present you a few of the coolest ideas for a Scooby Doo party.
Since Scooby is about solving mysteries, you can give invitations with mystery as the buzz word. Instead of announcing the details of the party in one invitation, you can give two sets with each one giving clues as to the activities. For example, the first card will say "Come to my birthday party on 11th February" and then the second one will announce the specific time and venue "3:00 PM at the Mall Activity Center".
One of the typical Scooby Doo birthday party ideas for invitations - if you think that sending out 2 invitations is too costly - is to cut out pictures of the cartoon characters. Then, paste these cutouts into a handmade or generic birthday invitations and then fill out the details of the party.
The best thing about a Scooby Doo-themed party is that Halloween decorations and Scooby Doo costumes can be used to spruce up the venue. Keep in mind that the Scooby Doo characters solve mysteries related to scary stuff so it makes sense to transform the party place into a haunted mansion.
You may also add Scooby Doo party supplies like toys, images of Scooby, Shaggy, Daphne, Velma and Fred, as well as a banner welcoming the guests. You can even hang a white sheet filled with Scooby Doo prints as a backdrop for taking pictures. Don't forget the balloons!
With Scooby Doo party ideas, you will not run out of fun games to entertain the young guests. The following games will emphasize the scary but fun theme:
• Message Mix-Up tests the participants' skill at listening. The birthday celebrant makes a one-sentence message and then passes it on to the person on his left and so on and so forth. The last person at the end of the line will tell the celebrant what he heard but often it is incorrect.
• Gelatin Ghost Contest is a fun but messy game for kids. Just make bowls of different colored gelatin a day before the party. Then, the participants will eat the bowls of gelatin without using their hands.
Other Scooby Doo birthday party ideas for games are adopted from the classic parlor games like pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey, balloon relay and Simon Says as well as a Scooby Doo toss game. Be sure to give each child a gift even if they lost the game.
Bake a birthday cake that can be decorated ala the Scooby Doo series. Or bake a Scooby Doo cake in the shape of a dog before placing on icing to resemble Scooby. Other foods include dogs in a blanket as well as gelatin, biscuits and cake in the shape of dogs.
Soon, your kid will love how you made his wishes come true by adopting his Scooby Doo birthday party ideas, which makes you the coolest mom. And you barely broke a sweat, too!
