Black top hat with removable bunny popping up out of it. Write information on the
bunny, or try using white crayon or wax paper writing and have them color it with crayon
to reveal the magic message.
In invitation, include a magic trick for each to be rehearsed and
Black and white balloons, streamers and tableware.
Cake and Food:
Magician hat cupcakes. Use black licorice as the hat's
rim and bunny "peeps" on top.
Decorate cake with a top hat and a magic wand or a bunny.
Serve chips or other snacks in plastic top hats.
Add simple magic tricks, cards, small book on magic tricks. If you can find
them, use plastic top hats to put the goodies in.
The guests can be given magician's hat (St-Patty's Day
hats from my local Dollar store painted black). These can be
decorated with stickers and glitter as part of the craft time.
Games and Activities:
Craft: Make ahead black capes with the kid's names in glitter and a few
glitter scrolls (ahead of time so they are dry). Let the kids glue on
precut stars, swirls, sew on buttons, jewels, even iron on jewel designs
The "magician" (Birthday Child) wears a black cape
decorated with sparkling stars and of course an appropriate hat. The stage
could be a front deck with no rails. For the table use a large
appliance box (on its side) covered with an old table cloth with a circle
cut out of it just big enough for the hat. A hidden adult volunteer
should hide inside in this box ready to pass the "bunnies" to the magician
Hire a magician or let the kids perform small tricks. Dress up a 'stage' area for
Disappearing Kids: Race using teams. Give each a roll of toilet paper and have
them completely cover one team member. First team done wins.
Balloon animals: Have a balloon pump and lots of
balloons for the kids to try their hand at making animals and/or have someone make them
for the kids.
