The Wiggles know kids like to sing along with them and be happy. A Wiggles party will be fun for everyone!
Perfect invitations to a Wiggles party are CDs of Greg, Murray, Jeff, and Anthony singing, slid into an inexpensive, plain white cardboard (or a homemade cardboard sleeve constructed from posterboard and glue) with all the relevant information written inside. These sing along invitations would be good, because from the time the child receives the invitation until the time of the party, they can be learning the songs, so they can sing along!
Decorate in the same simple red, blue, purple, and yellow found in the Wiggles home. This will prove to be inexpensive as well, because rather than buying expensive printed theme products, you can buy simple, inexpensive products in the Wiggles colors.
A neat idea for easy party food you can prepare ahead of time is to purchase colorful cardboard containers like the ones found in Chinese restaurants. Each container is big enough to hold an Anthony sandwich, chips, and a drink box.
A great cake idea is a three-dimensional Henry the Octopus cake. The cake, surrounded by a sea of cupcakes in red, blue, purple, and yellow, connected to Henry’s body by sour straws, will be an exciting Wiggles centerpiece for the food table.
Should you decide not to go for the drink boxes, or if you think the children need extra drinks, a neat idea is this recipe for rainbow punch in Wiggles colors:
Use ice cube trays to freeze red, blue, purple, and yellow ice cubes made from powdered soft drink mix, or apple juice with a few drops of food coloring. To serve, use clear plastic cups, add a cube of each color, and fill with clear soda.
When the Party Begins
When the guests arrive, give each one a colored shirt and/or cap, so they can be their favorite “Wiggle” – purple, red, yellow, or blue. Painter caps can be purchased at hardware or dollar stores for around a dollar, and a little fabric paint and a shaped paint sponge from your craft store, make it easy to decorate the caps before the party.
Wiggles Party Game Ideas
Since you prepared the kids by sending them the Wiggles CD invitation, they will have a fun time singing and clapping along to their favorite Wiggles songs in a Wiggles sing-along!
Have the kids take turns trying to break a Wags-the-Dog Pinata, and instead of candy, you can have stickers, pens, washable markers, printed and copied homemade coloring pages, etc.
Find Feathersword’s Treasure
Before the party hide gold plastic coins and toys for the children to find, making it easier by having an adult to tell them if they are “cold” or “hot.”
Jeff’s Sleepy Time Tag
Jeff’s sleepy time tag is played just like freeze tag, but instead of freezing when tagged, the children will fall “asleep” until a friend wakes them up!
Provide pieces of colored streamer or ribbons to each child. Put on a Wiggles CD and let the children dance while they sing along!
End the party with a story time to settle your guests down before they go home. Sometimes the party boy or girl feels a little after party let down, so if you make arrangements for one special friend to sleep over after the party, it can make the transition from your Wiggles party excitement a little bit more smooth.
