It had to be a Rudolph Party! When my daughter was younger, she was in love with Rudolph. A party based on this character or reindeer themed party in general was perfect to plan since she has a December birthday.

Rudolph Party Ideas and Reindeer Games

Our Rudolph Party

For the party invitations, plates, napkins, etc., I found licensed items online. If I hadn't, I would have gone with red plates and napkins, and made something cute that was reindeer themed for my invitation.

Loving to dress up, we furnished everyone with a pair of costume reindeer antlers. A fun activity would be making your own with pipe cleaners and a head band.

We also (before the party) gave each person coming a "reindeer costume" to wear. T-shirts tie-dyed brown, a brown felt skirt, and brown tights. We even included black gloves and black socks (hooves).

For a December birthday party, a great party craft or party arrival activity is making Christmas ornament

For favors, toy reindeer items or glow in the dark or flashing items are a hit.

Reindeer Party Games

Some of the "reindeer games" we played were:

  • We made our own pin the nose on Rudolph game.

  • We threw bean bags into a food bowl for another fun party game. The food bowl was marked "Rudolph's Food Bowl" and we pretended that the beanbags were reindeer food. If they bean bag landed in the bowl, they were feeding Rudolph!

  • We played “Santa says”. Santa was a paper bag with a picture of Santa on it. The bag filled with strips of paper that said things like “Hop 3 times”, “quack like a duck 2 times”, etc. Each child got a turn to pull one out, and then we read it and did it as a group.

  • We went on a hunt for wrapped Christmas packages, then we played a sort of pass the parcel with them - except instead of unwrapping layers, we used a new wrapped gift each round.

  • We tried to keep silver and gold balloons afloat.

  • Snow Monster game – Our favorite kid party game, the Monster Monster are you Hungry game, but instead of saying "Monster Monster" we said "Snow Monster Snow Monster are you Hungry?"

  • We even made a pinata to look like a reindeer.
  • Older kids would enjoy an easy game of reindeer trivia.
