It’s Oscar season! Although the kids probably haven’t seen this year’s best picture nominees, that doesn’t mean they still can’t be involved in all the glitz and glamour. These simple ideas will make the night fun for guests of all ages.
Roll Out the Red Carpet
It wouldn’t be an Oscar party without a red carpet entrance! This is such an easy DIY that will make the kids feel like stars. You can make your carpet out of red fabric, paper, tablecloth, or even buy one from Amazon if you want to go all out for the event.
Dress to Impress
The kids can’t walk down the carpet until they’re in their best Hollywood glam! Provide boas, neckties, and jewelry for a quick addition to their looks at the beginning of the runway. Make it more fun by letting everyone vote on who’s best dressed for the night.
As the mini stars make their way down the red carpet, tell them to strike their best pose for the camera. Add a sparkly or movie themed backdrop so the pictures look more festive. You can also make the paparazzi shoot a game, by taking turns and seeing who can snap the best photo of each star.
There’s no need to make fancy appetizers and treats for your party. Popcorn is a classic movie theatre snack that appeals to everyone. It also takes no time, or effort, at all to prepare. These Holly-Weenies are also the perfectly punned treat kids will love. Who knew hot-dogs could be so formal?
And the Award Goes to…
They may not be the real deal, but handing out mini Oscar statues is the perfect end to your Oscar party. Give out awards for best dressed, best photo, and more. Let the kids give an acceptance speech after receiving their award so they can thank mom and dad for helping them achieve it.
