WESTERN PARTY DECORATIONS
Tell those Wild Bills and Billy Jeans to come decked out western-style for the western party theme, in blue jeans and a plaid or denim shirt. When they arrive, make the western theme complete by giving each kid a Child Size Cowboy Hat and a Red Paisley Bandana to wear.
Make “WANTED” posters by getting some bristol board and printing off the western lettering in enlarged font. Try to take a picture of each guest before the party and make a photocopy of each to be placed in the center of the poster, or tell guests to bring a picture of themselves to the party and glue the picture to the center. Make sure it is a picture they do not want back… ‘cause you just may want to paint a mustache on each picture.
Use poker cards and chips as centerpieces. Place hay bales at the entrance where your guests arrive. Put a saddle over one so the children can ride an imaginary horse! Use brown, yellow and blue streamers and balloons. Make cow patterned balloons using white balloons and permanent black markers. Put pictures of cows, pigs, roosters and chickens everywhere. Use old cardboard boxes to cut out the shapes of cacti. Stick toothpicks in the cardboard and spray paint the cacti green.
Design signs with western lettering and pictures of cacti that read "OUTHOUSE” for the washroom, “SALOON” for the kitchen and “CORRAL” for the party room. Rope off sections of the house with lassos. Play a Country Western Music CD.
WESTERN THEMED PARTY GAMES
Get off to a roaring start with a round up of the bandits. Get some friends or family members to dress up in black or in black and white stripes, like a jailbird, and have them hide in different locations around the house and property. When the kids arrive, have each one deputized by giving them hand cuffs and a Sheriff’s badge. Then tell them to go round up the bandits! Once they’ve all been found, have a ho-down to celebrate the victory.
JUMP THE RATTLESNAKE
Get your little cowboys and cowgirls to jump a pit of writhing rattlesnakes! Take a pair of black stockings and cut the top off so you have the two separate ends. Put a black sock in the sock end of the stocking and make a knot behind it, so the sock is secured to the toe end. Now stuff bags of uncooked beans in small plastic bags down the hose. Get some red felt and make a long snake tongue for each, and glue on some googly eyes. Get the kids to stand behind the jumpstart line over looking the “Snake Pit.” Mark where the snake pit ends or the crossing line. Slither both snakes quickly so they dangle in the middle, making rattling sounds. Hand out a piece of red and black licorice to each child as a reward.
HERD THE CATTLE
Your young little westerners and you will love this delightfully easy game. Get together some inflated white balloons with cow patches drawn in with black marker. Tell each child, “It’s milkin’ time! Time to get out there and round up the cattle!“ Get them to hustle all the balloons with a broom, mop, or hockey stick into another room you can call “The Barn.” Play some rambling music to get the country feel in the air!
PANNING FOR GOLD
Give each child a pan and tell them to pan for gold out of a huge galvanized wash bucket that’s filled with sand and plastic jewelry, small plastic toys, and wrapped golden chocolate coins. They’re sure to light up and get digging fast once they spot the first piece of gold!
Who says you need horseshoes when you have hacky sacks and beanbags? All you need to get started on this safe version of “Indoor Horseshoes” is to tape an adult size cowboy hat to the ground, extend an imaginary circle out from the center and place masking tape where you think each child should sit. Supply them with hacky sacks or beanbags to throw into the hat. This simple, fun game is sure to please almost any little ranch hand.
Go hog wild and serve everything western style. Dish out “Pigs-in-a-Blanket”, or hot dogs wrapped and cooked in croissant batter, grilled steaks and beans with molasses on Old West Plates. Make “Cactus Punch” (a lime drink with a clear soda) and serve it with a big spoon out of a large metal bucket.
WESTERN BAG ‘O’ LOOT
For loot bags, use bandanas or patches of denim by laying the loot in the middle and gathering up the four corners with a knotted bow. Fill ‘er up with a squirt gun and holster, a bag of rope licorice labeled “Lassos,” a can of “Sarsaparilla,” play chips, a deck or cards and assorted candy. To make sure you have a rootin’, tootin’, boot-stompin ‘ good time at the wild west birthday party, check out the rest of the western party themes birthday decorations! Yee-haw!
