Birthdayparties can be incredibly expensive, but you can throw your own WOWP party for much less thanthose pizza places or other "entertainment zones."Here are some tips:Get music associated with the show which include the soundtrack to the "Wizards of WaverlyPlace Movie"(downloadable from iTunes one song at a time or available for purchase as a whole CD).Depending on the age of the kids, you might want to just play it in the background or couldeven use it for a "hot potato" like game.* Have a Wizards of Waverly Place trivia contest. You can get a lot of questions/answers from theDisney Channel site as well as the Wikipedia.* Have the kids watch one 30 minute show that you have recorded and then ask really obscurequestions about it (kind of like your own version of Scene-It).Examples of questions might include:what color someone was wearing, what spell was placed,or who said a particular quote.
Get Wizards of Waverly Place birthday party supplies.These include cups, plates, napkins, stickers, and even magic wands.You can purchase these at most party supply retailers.Place some gross feeling items in buckets and have the kids guess what ingredients they mightbe able to use for spells. Things like spaghetti or peeled grapes.If it is a sleepover or the party will last for more than a few hours,watch the "Wizards of Waverly Place Movie" or "Wizards on Deck with Hannah Montana"(a 3 episode Disney Channel cross-over also available on DVD) .Set up a movie theatre-like atmosphere and give each attendeea pretend movie ticket before they enter the "theatre."There are so many possibilities, but these are just a few.It really is a cute show and lends itself well for a party theme.Tricia Meyer is the owner of Sunshine Rewards and Helping Moms Connect.Article Source:http://EzineArticles.com/?expert=Tricia_Meyer_______________________________________________________Wizards of Waverly Place Party IdeasInvitations: Turn your invitations into a contest.Lets see who can come up with the most creative and fantastic looking wand!All you need for this is some fancy ribbon, wooden dowels (cut to wand size) and your computerand paper.You can even find some aged or scroll paper at your local store.Using your computer and preferred paper, write all the party details like the who, when and where.Perhaps title the page with something in bold letters like"You are invited to ___s Wicked __th Birthday Party!" When the details are out of the way,explain the wand contest.Explain that you have supplied them with the base for their creation butis up to them to make it magical by painting, glittering and gluing - whatever they like.To get them excited and motivated also tell them there are special prizes for the most creative,colorful and unique wands. Roll the invite paper up with the wooden dowel inside and tie tightlywith your fancy ribbon. Your invitations are ready to hand out!Decorations: The traditional balloons and streamers in colours like purple, fuchsia and lime greenwould be great to match with all the WOWP tableware and decorations readily available onlineand stores.For an absolutely fantastic idea why dont you decorate the party area as the popular Lair whichas you know is located in the sub shop behind the large refrigerator door! The lair is is a kindaspooky but super fun place for the kids to hang out and learn magic spells.To create this look, bring in everything antique and old looking. Put tons of old books and
encyclopedias around.Use dim lighting with a of lamps.Use lots of printed fabrics and display different spells that the kids have learned in old frames.Use lots of sun, star and moon decor even if you have to make them yourself out of constructionpaper.Dried flowers, plants and herbs are scattered throughout the lair in vases, pots and jars.Pull out your Halloween decorations and look for items like skulls, rats, witches and spiders- pretty much anything spooky. Watch a few episodes or go to the Disney website to get alook at the Lair and get a real feel for decorating like it.Party Games:Play your own version of Wizards of Waverly Place Scene It.Watch a recorded or a DVD episode of WOWP and then break the guests into 2 groups.Ask really obscure questions like "What colour hat was Alex wearing" or "What was Max eating".Have at least 25 questions prepared and allow 30 seconds for the team to answer.One answer is allowed only so they must confer as a group before blurting out answers.The team with the most answered questions wins! If you have just two groups,you can play the rule that the other team can steal if answered incorrectly.If the birthday child is involved in the prep for this game, suggest that they become the hostand ask the questions.Crafts: Make your own potions table.Well, maybe not potions but wouldnt it be fun for the guests to make their own lotion or bubblebath.A simple recipe for homemade bubble bath is as follows. Pour unscented and clear dish soap intoafancy glass or plastic bottle 3/4 of the way full. You can use any type of container or bottleyou wish as long as it is clear and has a lid. Scan your local dollar store, you will be amazedat what you can find! Offer a selection of different essential oils for aroma and food colouringsfor a range of shades. It is important to remind your guests that less is more, only afew drops are needed. Feel free to mix and match but never shake your creation, use a stir stickto gently stir. The last step is optional. You can add some body glitter sparkles, soap confettior even dried flowers to jazz up your bubble bath. That would definitely make it a bubble bathpotion!Menu: Subs of course!The characters all work in their Dads sub shop so Submarine sandwiches are the perfect choice.You can either purchase a long party sub or have a make your own station set up.You could lay out differ kinds of breads, cheeses, meats, veggies and dressings for the gueststo make their own creations. A nice touch would be to also serve can pop and bagged chips ofdifferent flavors just like what they have available in the shop.A really inexpensive way to create a Wizards of Waverly Place theme cake is to simply downloadand print your favourite logo or picture of the wizards from Google images. Once printedand cut to size you simply laminate it.Place it on your cake and pipe you childs favourite colour of icing around the image.Keep the icing bright, add a wand, candles and some stars and your done.Your effort and imagination will be much appreciated.Just dont forget to remove the laminated image before eating!
