Six Impossible Things Scavenger Hunt
Alice sometimes believes six impossible things before breakfast. For this game, send you party guests on a scavenger hunt for six impossible things of their own! You’ll need to do a little prep before hand and use some creativity. Here are the six impossible things Alice mentions in the 2010 live-action movie version:
- There is a potion that can make you shrink: hide a “potion” for this one, you can make your own with colored water and a water bottle, or get fancier and get little bottles from a craft store.
- A cake that can make you grow: consider hiding the birthday cake as the final clue, otherwise, a toy cake will do.
- Animals can talk: Every house has at least one talking animal toy, right?
- Cats can disappear: I suggest either a Cheshire Cat stuffed animal or, if you’re on a tight budget, a picture of the Cheshire cat will do.
- There is a place called Wonderland: a picture or postcard of Wonderland works here.
- I can slay the Jabberwocky: once they find this clue, turn it into a “pin the sword on the Jabberwocky game by hanging a large picture of the beast and giving kids paper swords. You can also get a dragon pinata (closest thing I can find to a Jabberwocky) and “slay” that.
Mad Hatter Tea Party Musical Chairs Coloring Frenzy
At the Mad Hatter’s tea party, things get a little crazy when you yell “clean cup, move down, move down!” Set up your own silly musical chairs tea party with a twist by placing chairs all around a table and putting enough Alice in Wonderland coloring sheets for each child. Let kids start coloring, then shout “clean cup, move down!” Each child must shift around the table to the chair to their right and continue coloring that person’s sheet. Go around until everyone has had a chance to color every sheet. You should have a totally mad mix of styles! Make it more exciting by using different medias, like crayons at one “station,” pastels at another, paints at yet another and so on.
I suggest the Alice in Wonderland Giant Poster and Coloring Book because it’s nice and large. If your table can’t accommodate that, simply set up different stations throughout the room to rotate through.
You can’t have Alice in Wonderland party games without a Caucus Race! While the political meaning of this particular scene in the book is lost on young kids, the fun is definitely there! The rules of a caucus race? There are no rules! Everyone runs around all crazy like and where they stop, they stop. Everyone wins. Basically, you’re giving the kids a chance to burn off energy by acting like crazy little dodo’s! Want to make it more authentic? Play this game after a run through the sprinkler (if it’s warm enough), as the Caucus race is a great way to dry “feathers and fur.”
Shrinking and Growing Obstacle Course
There are so many ways to pull off this game, from super complex obstacle courses on playgrounds to simple hurdles made from pool noodles and varying lengths of wooden stakes. Whichever you choose, the goal is to make some parts of the course low to the ground so kids have to “shrink.” They can crawl, do the crab walk, or walk on their hands and knees. Set up shrinking potions (small cups of punch, water, etc) before the parts that require shrinking and a tasty treat for when they have to grow.

These are just a few of the Alice in Wonderland party games for kids that I thought of off the top of my head. You may notice that I’m a little mad for Alice! It so happens to be my all-time favorite book and movie (both Disney versions). Alas, I have a boy and he’s not into it, so I’ll never get to throw a party with that theme. Aren’t you sad for me? You know what would cheer me up?
