Doctor Who Party Ideas for Kids

My family and I are all Whovians, and well, it just seemed appropriate to share some of our Doctor Who Party ideas with all of you!

Decorations:

Think Tardis Blue! Blue tableware would be perfect for this party! You also should have a Tardis somewhere while you are at it.  You could create one with a refrigerator box, or you can find a nice stand up one like this:

Cardboard Tardis available from Oriental Trading

Other things that would be fun to use include star streamers and the glow in the dark stars for the ceiling and walls.

Games and Activities:

When you send your invitations, you should, of course, tell your guests to come as their favorite Doctor Who characters. Have a contest to see who is your favorite.

You could also create a fez and bow tie for everyone to take home. In addition, let the children decorate their own Dr. Who cookie. You can find some great cookie cutters in Dr. Who and other themes on Etsy.

For games, here are some fun ideas that one of my friends and I came up with:

-Weeping Angel Tag: One child is the angel. When the child’s back is turned, all the children move around the room. When she turns around, the children must stop. Whoever moves is out.

-Toss The Adipose: It’s kind of like “Hot Potato.” However, try to find a white bean bag to use as an Adipose.

-Pin The Tie on The Doctor: Either draw one of the doctors or print a picture from your computer. Make bowties out of paper and have the children try to put one on the Doctor like you would if you were playing “Pin the Tail on the Donkey.”

-Musical Planets: Draw Planets on pieces of posterboard or cardboard. Place them around the room. Play like “Musical Chairs.”

-Treasure Hunt: Pretend the Tardis is broken and hide pieces that the children would need to “fix” it.

Food:

What’s a party without food? Here are some ideas for some fun eats!

-Marshmallow Adipose

Crisscross toothpicks into large marshmallows. Add four miniature ones for hands and feet. Use black icing to make faces

-Fish Fingers and Custard: Self-explanatory. You probably want to serve them separately, but my children did try them together tonight and loved it!

-Dr. Who Cookies. If you decide to make the cookies as suggested above, you have a nice treat for the party as well.

These are some suggestions to get you started! If you have ideas, please feel free to share them with us!
