How to host a Smurf Party

Get ready to be Smurf'd Source: Smurfhappens


The Smurfs Movie in 3D is scheduled to be released worldwide August 2011 by Columbia Pictures. When this movie is released, look out parents, this will be the theme that every young child will want for their next birthday party.

When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village, they tumble from their magical world and into ours -- in fact, smack dab in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down.

If you are looking for some Smurf party games and activity inspiration, here are a few ideas to get you started:

Arrival Activities:
Have plenty of Smurf colouring pages and a blue playdoh activity station ready for the kids to warm up and allow the majority of guests to arrive. You could paint the children's faces blue to get them really Smurf'd!

Games:

Pass the Parcel - Smurf Style
Sit children in a circle, press play to the Smurf theme song and pass a Smurf plush toy you have purchased. When the music stops, the child with the smurf in their hand reaches into the Smurf treasure challenge bag.  Inside the challenge bag is pre-cut hand out cards with the various Smurf names on them. The kids pull out a Smurf character name and they must mimic that Smurf. If they pass the "smurf challenge" they will be rewarded with a small prize.

The Smurfs have names specific to their characters. The Smurfs include: Papa Smurf, Lazy Smurf, Handy Smurf, Brainy Smurf, Clumsy Smurf, Reporter Smurf, Tailor Smurf, Farmer Smurf, Dreamy Smurf, Harmony Smurf, Painter Smurf, Hefty Smurf, Vanity Smurf, Jokey Smurf, Poet Smurf, Grouchy Smurf, Baker Smurf, Smurfette, Greedy Smurf, Puppy, Baby Smurf, and Grandpa Smurf.

Smurf, Smurf, Smurfette or Smurf, Smurf, Gargamel. (Duck, Duck, Goose) Kids love this game

Smurf Smarties Sucker Relay

Get the children to line up in 2 straight lines and each child is given a straw. One at a time children run up to a container with blue and white choc drops in. Place the straw on a choc drop and suck. The choc drop sticks to the straw. They then need to drop it into their hand, then can eat it and run back and tag the next person. These blue and white choc drops can be purchased from Goodygoodygumdrops.com.au or alternatively in America, you can purchase these direct from Kopper's chocolates.

Smurf Commando Course
In the movie, the Smurfs find a hidden grotto that they drop into and wind up in Central Park in New York City – trying to stay away from Gargamel as they try to find their way back to their Village. Why not set up a Smurf commando course for them. You could time them for greater challenge.

Gargamel Tag
All children line up on the start line and they have to try and get to the finish line. Gargamel (ala you) is standing in the middle and you try to tag them as they run past. If the Smurfs get caught, they become "garagamel it" as well, but must stand stationary. They can only tag players if they come close enough. Keep going until no one is left.

Smurf Bingo It's time to get your power point skills ready to cut and paste Smurf images from the net and create Smurf Bingo cards similar to the one shown above
Smurf Says Play just like Simon Says, but using "Papa Smurf Says"

Pin the Hat on Papa Smurf or pin the tail on Gargamel's cat

Smurf dress up relay
Split the children into 2 teams and make 2 piles of clothing. The piles should include - 2 white caps (similar to Smurf hats), 2 pairs of blue gloves, 2 blue t-shirts, 2 pairs of white shorts and 2 pairs of white smurf like shoes). Have the first in the lines race to the pile of Smurf clothing and dress up in all of the Smurf clothes. When finished, they must take all the clothes off and go and tag the next player in line. The team that dresses and undresses first wins.
