The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is certainly a movie so many of us remember from our childhoods. This May 9th, we are brought back to Kansas and Oz in the new film Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return. The new animated film, Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return is much different than the Oz of our day yet we’re united with some of our favorites! We recently watched The Wonderful Wizard of Oz to refresh our memories before the new film hits theaters. So let’s see how you can host an amazing Wizard of Oz party with lots of games and a cute craft for kids. First let’s start with this movie craft for kids. Then we will share some Wizard of Oz Party games that kids can play. We will finish with a delicious party cake and snack ideas.
Wizard of Oz Movie Party Craft for Kids
After we watched Wizard of Oz, we came up with this great bookmark and think it would be a fun craft for a Wizard of Oz Movie Party for kids! Why a bookmark for a movie party? If The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and the beloved characters taught us anything, it was that dreams really do come true and the power of imagination! Reading inspires all of us to dream and to let our imagination go. So, create this bookmark as a fun Wizard of Oz take home craft.
Do you all recall the scene where the Wicked Witch of the West is found under the house wearing those beautiful ruby slippers? Who doesn’t recall this, right! Well, that’s the inspiration behind our bookmark.
- plastic straws
- white Duck Tape
- rainbow or tie dye Duck Tape
- black Duck Tape (or electrical tape)
- red craft foam
- glitter paint
Instructions for this craft for kids
Layer several pieces of white Duck Tape together to create a somewhat stiff bookmark. You can cut the tape once it is layered to straighten it and make it the right size. The most important part of this step is to make sure it is layered together smoothly.
Cover the back of the white tape with the rainbow or tie dye Duck Tape and turn it over the front side to frame the white.
Cut a straw into 2 pieces approximately 2 1/2″ long and cover with white Duck Tape. Carefully wrap each one with the black tape to create stripes.
Cut shoe shapes from the red craft foam and lightly coat with the glitter paint. Attach the shoes to the ends of the straws with the black tape.
Cut strips of the rainbow or tie dye tape and wrap around the bookmark to secure the legs.
Once glitter paint is completely dry, the bookmark is ready to use! Those striped stockings and ruby slippers are so cute sticking out of your favorite books for kids! Along with the craft, you can play those Wizard of Oz party games to keep kids entertained.
Wizard of Oz Party Games For kids
There are lots of other great game ideas you can add into a Wizard of Oz movie party too. Party games are always a great idea and you could quickly and easily make a “Pin the heart on the Tin Man” game for lots of fun! Just a little grey & red construction paper, scissors, and imagination would make a great game!
Another fun Wizard of Oz party game would be a twist on musical chairs – create a “yellow brick road” from construction paper. Lay the bricks out on the floor in a circle. Play music and have guests “follow the yellow brick road” until the music stops. Each round remove a brick from the path so there is always one less brick than there are players. Whoever is without a brick to stand on when the music stops is eliminated. I am sure these Wizard of Oz party games will be a hit among kids.
Enjoy these Party Food and snacks along with the party games
Of course, no party is complete without party food! In addition the the great Legends of Oz Cake we have for you, plan other themed treats and snacks. Cheese slices would make a fantastic “yellow brick road” and is a healthy option when served with whole grain crackers. A glass bowl filled with fresh raspberries and strawberries would make the perfect “ruby slipper” and a variety of green fruits or veggies can become your “emerald city” when plated together!

The Wizard of Oz bookmarks are very creative. I love how the ruby slippers will hang out of the book so you can easily find the page you left off from in a book.
