Dr. Seuss Inspired “Wacky Wednesday” Birthday Party
Dr. Seuss Inspired “Wacky Wednesday” Birthday Party Details:
This is what Bre. shared about the party-
My son has been obsessed with the book Wacky Wednesday. I decided it would be a fun and easy birthday party theme to base his 4th birthday on. One little problem, there wasn’t much inspiration for a party with this theme! I started to search on Pinterest for “wacky birthday parties for kids” or “wacky Wednesday theme birthday parties” even taking my search to Google with no luck. Seriously, I feel like I was the first one to venture off to recreate this theme for a kid’s birthday party! I planned and executed this party in about 3 weeks which isn’t much time! I first sought out a venue.
I wanted to stay clear of what the usual Dr. Seuss themes are which tend to be super bright colors. After a friend of mine told me about a historic school nearby, I just knew that would be the perfect place to have the party at. I took the venue and used that as my inspiration. I didn’t want to overrun the school house with a bunch of décor (and plus this is a historical site so I couldn’t use any tape or hang anything up!) If you end up planning a theme like this yourself, chances are it probably won’t be at historical schoolhouse (but it may!) in that case, go crazy! Hang shoes on the ceilings, wrap huge plastic candy canes around a leg of the dessert table, put a couple stuff animal tigers outside the window looking inside… really the possibilities are endless…
I did some simple DIY such as gluing a plant on a cow and then the cow on the bus. But, I had to get a little creative and remember “what would kids find hilarious and imaginative?” I bought appetizer forks and spoons which are super tiny and we used those as our utensils. Then, I printed out a poster size of a page of the book that talks about the school in Wacky Wednesday and used that as my entrance sign. Plus, I also strategically placed a huge school house bell next to it (from TJ Maxx) that the kids rung as they came into the “class.”
I wrapped a cardboard box up with kraft paper and wrote on each side: “walk like a dinosaur,” “hop like a bunny,” “Slither like a snake” etc., and we used that as dice. The kids would throw it up and whatever it would land on they had to do. Mind you, they were 4 and younger so this was plenty fun.
In addition to that game, I also had hid easter eggs all over the outside of the schoolhouse. I purchased around 40 pre-filled eggs from Amazon that were such a lifesaver. So they had an Easter egg hunt in November!
As far as the food goes, that too I wanted to be wacky. The menu was: Inside out sandwiches which were two pieces of cheese with a piece of bread in the middle. Taco poptarts which I actually made vegetarian and were delicious! And lastly, wacky waffle bar! I brought a wide range of different toppings and the guests had the option to make their own wacky waffles.
The cake was a specialty cake that I couldn’t find ANYWHERE for inspiration online! I wanted a good Wacky Wendesday upside down cake and Delicious Designs created a masterpiece. She also included a smaller cake that had a “surprise” in the middle which made my little 4 year olds heart explode. He was so excited”.
