5 Must Try Tips For The Ultimate Kid-Friendly Oscar Party Theresa February 27, 2017 Movies 21 Comments Whether you love movies or simply have children who do, throwing an Oscar viewing party is a great way to bring the family together. If you want to throw the ultimate Oscar themed party the whole family will enjoy, you’re in the right place. From decorations to apparel, these tips will bring the magnificence of Hollywood into your home. Tips For A Kid-Friendly Oscar Party Since our family loves parties, we decided that we would turn our average Sunday night dinner into an extravagant Oscar themed party. In a few short hours, we were able to throw together a simple party centered around the children. Check out some tips that helped make this event a fabulous celebration. Dress glamorously Give your children a reason to wear their most glamorous clothes. When you attend the Oscars, you wear your best outfit. For a red carpet appearance, my children found Halloween costumes on sale at the party store. We selected two matching pink flapper dresses, some strands of pearls, and a fantastic boa. Not only were the outfits were adorable, but they also helped my children get in the spirit of a celebration. Walk the red carpet before eating Set up a red carpet for the children to walk in their costumes. If you don’t own a red carpet, you could use any long red cloth – from a table cloth to a blanket – but we bought a one that worked really well. Make sure that everyone walks down the red carpet before eating. You wouldn’t want food to get on the star’s designer clothes! Prepare finger food From deviled eggs to pigs in a blanket, children love food they can pick up to eat. You can make or buy guacamole, queso, wings, and pizza. We had a delicious cheesecake for dessert. With a simple menu, you can spend more time having fun and less time in the kitchen. Give out ballots Each person can help come up with the categories for your ballots. As a family, we decided what categories would be on our ballots to include everyone. We voted on best food, best costumes, and best movie of the year. Since my daughter tallied the votes, she enjoyed having an important role during the activity. Present the awards Give out awards to all children who attend. With both of our children wearing the same costume, they both tied for best costume. Although we gave out award trophies that I found at the party store, you could easily come up with a creative alternative. Children could decorate paper towel rolls with gold and sparkles for a simple award craft. Photos from our celebration Below, check out some photos from our fun family Oscar party. By handing out awards, you can bring Hollywood spirit to your Oscar themed party! With a red carpet to walk down, children will love showing off their glamorous clothes.
