Magic Party Games and Crafts Ideas
Dress Up - Make this a costume party by inviting your guests to come dressed as
magicians or fortune tellers! If you have extra clothes or accessories,
offer them to those who come without costumes. Be sure to take photos for
intriguing party favors!
Magic Box - This game takes advance preparation, but it’s lots of fun to play. Before
the party, find a small gift for each child, as well as several boxes of
varying sizes that will fit inside each other. Put the best gift inside the
smallest box, and wrap it with special gift wrap. Put this gift in a
slightly larger box with a new prize, and wrap again. Continue this process
until you have wrapped enough boxes and gifts for each guest to unwrap one.
At the party, seat your guests in a circle. Play some magical music and tell
the children to pass the magic box around the circle as quickly as possible.
When you stop the music, the lucky player holding the box must say “Abra Ca
Dabra” before they are allowed to unwrap it. (Don’t tell the kids there are
other boxes inside). Once a child has unwrapped a box, they must leave the
circle with their gift. Start the music again and continue playing until
each child has unwrapped a gift in the magic box. The child to open the last
box is the winner of the magic prize!
MAGICIAN - How many words can your guests
come up with using the letters in the word Magician?
Penny Magic -
Pick 5 pennies with different dates and place them in a top hat. Ask one
of your guests to pick a penny and look at the date, without telling what it
is. Pass the penny around so everyone knows the chosen date. Quickly put the
penny back into the hat and shake up the pennies. Let your “Penny Magician”
(birthday child) reach into the hat and pull out the chosen penny. The Penny
Magician will know which penny was chosen because copper absorbs heat,
making the penny that everyone has handled warmer than the rest. Once
everyone learns the secret penny magic, let each child take a turn being the
Magic Jelly Beans - Before the party, fill a large jar with red, black and white jelly beans.
(Remember to count the jelly beans before putting them in the jar.) During
the party, write down each child’s guess of how many beans they think are in
the jar. At the end of the party, gather everyone together and announce the
actual number of jelly beans in the jar. The child with the most accurate
guess wins the jar of magic jelly beans!
Card Memory -
Take a deck of cards and shuffle them well. Lay them face down on the
floor or a large table. Each player takes a turn flipping two cards over. If
they don’t match, the player turns them back over and another player takes a
turn. If they do match, the player keeps them and continues flipping until
they are unable to make a match. The object of this game is to find as many
matches as you can.
Sneaky Magician - Only a sneaky magician can outwit a gang of thieves! Choose a child to be
the Sneaky Magician, seat them in a chair, and blindfold them. Place a
special magical item beneath the chair, (top hat, deck of cards, magic eight
ball, etc.) which the Magician must protect from the thieves. Only one thief
may try to steal from the Magician at any given time. Since the Magician is
blindfolded he/she must listen closely for the thief and touch them with
their hands or feet before they steal the magical item. A thief who is
caught becomes the next Magician. If the Magician does not catch the thief,
the magical item is replaced under the chair so another thief can try.
Hat Trick - Set a top hat in the middle of a large room and tell the children to form
a circle around it. Pass out an equal number of playing cards to each guest
and take turns tossing the cards into the hat. (Adjust distance to match the
skill and patience level of your guests.) Any player who gets a card in the
hat gets to continue tossing until they miss. The player who tosses the most
cards into the hat gets to start the next round.
Cape Decorating - Have the guests create
their own Magician's cape. Provide them with capes and fabric paint pens.
Have them write their name and "The Great" on the backs. Makes great party
Create your Own Magic Wands - Provide the
supplies so that your guests can create and keep their very own Magic Wand!

Magic Rainbow Punch
Create a drink that’s as much fun to make as it is to drink. Freeze
several of your child’s favorite Kool-Aid® flavors (berry, orange, lemon,
lime, blue raspberry, grape, etc.) in ice cube trays. Fill trays half-full
so more colored cubes will fit in each glass. When it’s time to serve, place
ice cubes in a large bowl and let each child fill their glass (tall clear
cups work the best). Pour clear soda or juice over the colored cubes. Your
guests will love watching as it turns into Magic Rainbow Punch.
Fantastic No-Bake Cake
Your guests are sure to be intrigued when you tell them this cake was
“baked” in the freezer! You will need: 24 chocolate chip cookies, 3/4 cup
quick oats, 1/2 cup melted butter or margarine, 1/2 gallon ice cream or
frozen yogurt (one or two flavors), and your child's favorite candies for
First, place the ice cream in the refrigerator to soften. Meanwhile, put 16
cookies in a plastic bag and crush well with a rolling pin. Put crushed
cookies in a bowl, add 1/2 cup quick oats, and stir in 1/4 melted butter.
Press mixture evenly into the bottom of a 9 1/2-inch springform pan. Scoop
out half the softened ice cream and spread evenly over the crust. Crush the
remaining cookies, and combine with the remaining quick oats and melted
butter. Spread mixture over the first layer of ice cream. Then, add the
second layer of ice cream and decorate as desired. Freeze until party time.
Adapt this cake to your party theme by making a magician's top hat out of
black construction paper, leaving the top piece off. Make sure the hat’s
diameter is larger than the cake, so it fits around it without touching.
Before serving, place the hat over the cake, with the brim up, as if you
will be pulling the cake out of the hat. (This also allows you to light the
birthday candles.) Tap the hat with a magic wand, and say “Abra Ca Dabra!”
before lifting the hat off the cake. For extra fun, place a magic rabbit ice
cream ball (recipe below) on top!
Queen of Tarts
Purchase frozen pastry dough at your grocery store. Roll onto a lightly
floured surface, cut into 3” circles, and press into tart pans. Chill while
preparing filling. To make the filling, beat 3 eggs and blend in 1 cup sour
cream, 1/4 cup chopped scallions, 1/2 teaspoon onion salt, a dash of nutmeg,
and 1 1/4 cups grated Swiss cheese. Spoon filling into tart shells. Cut tiny
heart shapes out of whole pimentos and place one on each tart. Bake for 20
to 25 minutes until puffy and golden. Serve warm.
Magic Rabbit Ice Cream Balls
Make a large ice cream ball for each of your guests. Roll each ball in
coconut flakes and set it on a flattened cupcake wrapper. Use black jelly
beans for the rabbit’s eyes, and a red jelly bean for its nose. Use halved
sugar cookies to make the rabbit's "ears." Store them in the freezer until
ready to serve. These treats are sure to disappear fast!
Magic Party Decorations
Make and cut-out Magic Playing Card designs and hang them on the front door and the walls. Have clear colored balloons all around and in bunches. Have carpet remnants for each guest to have their own "magic" carpet to sit on during the party. Cut out and color Moon and Stars for the walls, or you could use the glow-light ones to
enchant your guests!
