Invitations

Idea 1 - Get paper crowns from burger king or a party store and spray paint them gold like the one that Max has in the book. On the back/inside write the party information and have your child’s pre-school classmates wear their invites home on their head

Idea 2 - Print out monster coloring pages from the internet and write the party information on the back. Be sure to include a few crayons with the invite.


Decorations

  • If you can find them, have your child wear a pair of white footie pajamas
  • Decorate the ceiling with blue and yellow streamers
  • If possible have your party out doors with nature as decoration and plenty of space to “GO WILD”

Games and Activities

Max and The Wild Things

  • One child is Max (It) while the others are all Wild Things. The Wild Things hide while Max goes and finds them one by one. When the last child is found that “Wild Thing” is the new Max.

Crown Walk

  • Gold crowns with numbers on them are placed on the ground in a circle. As music plays the children walk in a circle and when the music stops a number is called out and the child on that spot gets a small prize.

Wild Rumpus

  • Have the children act out a Wild Rumpus (whatever they think it would be) as the music plays but when the music is paused they must freeze. If someone moves they are out untill only one child is left.

      Great hub! I love the theme. I have always loved that book. Almost makes me wish I had kids again. Maybe I can talk my son into doing this for my grand daughter! Voted up, useful, awesome and interesting.
