Not even in a full day kindergarten program.
Here are all the activities and crafts that kept the kids busy, busy, busy during our Goldilocks party. We also tucked a little bag of gummy bears inside for a treat! The kids really enjoyed choosing outfits for their bears and drawing little faces.
Glow-in-the-Dark Necklaces This was a simple last-minute addition — glow-in-the-dark pony beads and elastic cord. I pre-cut the elastic cord to necklace length and tied a bead on the end of each piece for easy stringing.
Can You Find Goldilocks? I made paper Goldilocks in ten different colors and hid them all around the yard. I printed out simple color checklists and the kids had a blast running around the yard looking for Goldilocks. For easier writing I stapled each checklist to a piece of stiff cardboard.
This was a great activity to keep the kids busy while I set-up dessert! Musical Chairs with a twist… The only game we played was one part musical chairs, one part cake walk. We did not remove any chairs as in traditional musical chairs. While the music was playing, the kids walked around the chairs and when the music stopped they sat down.
I picked 3 or 4 winners each round, using a smaller set of the same chair graphics all from Microsoft Word clip art. What were the prizes? We used watercolors, which turned out lovely and dried quickly.
When we finished our game, all we needed were the Baby Bears to put in our little beds. The bears were missing! Luckily, there was a note left behind. The kids loved following the trail of clues — letters from Goldilocks, actually. They finally found a basket full of little bears and Goldilocks herself!
I could not find a Goldilocks doll, so I got a blonde Groovy Girl and sewed her a very simple yellow felt dress and apron.
Everyone was excited to tuck Baby Bear into a tiny bed. These were definitely the hit of the party! I think a little bed playset like this would be a great gift for Christmas.
