When Dorothy wakes up after the tornado picks up her farmhouse and walks into the brightly colored world of Oz, she knows she is not in Kansas anymore. This movie and book classic are loved by many. Now you can invite Dorothy, Glinda the Good Witch, the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion into your home for a Wizard of Oz Birthday Party.
You can make your own party invitations by cutting a piece of red card stock into the shape of a shoe. Decorate with red glitter to make a ruby slipper. Write the party details on the other side. There are also pre-made Wizard of Oz invitations inviting your guests to “Put on their party shoes.”
A fun party game for your guests would be to create a Pin the Heart on the Tin Man game. Make a Tin Man out of tin foil and some red hearts from construction paper. Hang the Tin Man on the wall and let each guest try to put the heart in the right place while blindfolded.
Serve your guests Munchkin Hamburgers (mini-burgers), Somewhere Over the Rainbow Pasta Salad, and Ruby Slipper Punch. Send them all home with a Wizard of Oz party favor box as a thank gift for coming. They may not want to leave Oz for Kansas after this great Wizard of Oz Birthday Party.
