Who loved the Smurfs growing up? I know I absolutely loved the little Smurfs and their village and all of their antics with the bad wizard, Gargamel, and his cat Azrael. How cool is it that the Smurfs movie will hit the big screen later this year in a CGI/ live action version. Wouldn’t this make a fun party theme too? All of those Smurfs – all of that blue! Think it would be fun? Read on for Smurf party ideas to bring these characters to life for your birthday child.
Smurf Party Invitation
Draw a Smurf hand print, paint it blue on both sides, and write your Smurf party details on one side.
Smurf Party Decorations
This has got to be about blue and you can vary different shades of blue to bring the theme alive, i.e. light blue, royal blue, blue, etc. Off set all of your blue with white as a secondary color too. Use blue and white for balloons, streamers, and table ware.
Additionally, mark a path to the front door with Smurf footprints and make Smurf paper hand prints to place on the party walls.
As a table centerpiece, use a Smurf stuffed animal. To be exceptionally creative, create the Smurf’s village using large appliance boxes that you create into little houses by cutting the boxes to have windows and a door entrance and then painting them in colors to look like their mushroom village.
Smurf Party Activities
When your party guests arrive, have a face painter to paint the kids’ faces blue.
As an opening craft activity, have the kids make Smurf hats that they can wear during the party and take home with them too. The Smurf hats can be made out of white heavy card stock or white felt.
The Smurfs have names specific to their characters. The Smurfs include: Papa Smurf, Lazy Smurf, Handy Smurf, Brainy Smurf, Clumsy Smurf, Reporter Smurf, Tailor Smurf, Farmer Smurf, Dreamy Smurf, Harmony Smurf, Painter Smurf, Hefty Smurf, Vanity Smurf, Jokey Smurf, Poet Smurf, Grouchy Smurf, Baker Smurf, Smurfette, Greedy Smurf, Puppy, Baby Smurf, and Grandpa Smurf.
Hand out cards with the various Smurf names on them and have the kids play Smurf Charades. Alternatively, call out a Smurf character name and have the kids mimic that Smurf.
Play Smurf, Smurf, Smurfette like Duck, Duck, Goose.
Hold a Smurf Treasure Hunt. Hide blue candies around the party area and give the kids a few minutes to find them all. Have them sing the Smurf song as they search too.
In the movie, the Smurfs find a hidden grotto that they drop into and wind up in Central Park in New York City – trying to stay away from Gargamel as they try to find their way back to their Village. Have the kids jump into through a large hula hoop or into a large box to mimic their own fall through the grotto. From there tag someone to be Gargamel and play Gargamel Tag.
Watch an episode of the Smurfs TV show.
Smurf Party Menu
Create a menu any Smurf would love to eat!
Using a mushroom shaped cookie cutter, cut out Smurf sandwiches and fill with cream cheese and blueberry jam.
Serve a berry salad of blueberries and strawberries.
Blue tortilla chips with dips.
Smurf Juice. Using blue Kool Aid mix with Club Soda instead of regular water. Add ice cubes with berries frozen inside.
Make a favorite batch of cupcakes and have the kids frost and decorate their Smurf cupakes with blue frosting and blue and white candies.
Smurf Party Favors
As the kids depart, give them a blue tumbler with their names painted on them. Fill with Smurf pencils, notebooks, stickers, and any other small thematic goodies. Alternatively, give the kids a Smurf frame – a wooden frame painted blue.
Don’t forget to send them home with their Smurf hats too.
La, La, La, La, La, La! Have a Smurfy good time!
