Planning a kids party activity can be tricky, but you are going to love our PJ Masks party activity! With a mixture of dress-up and moving around it was a perfect for a 3-year-olds birthday party! You know how much we love our party activities! Coming up with something that is age appropriate, fun, and inexpensive to create is something that we pride ourselves in.
What you need for your PJ Masks party activity:
- Spray Paint. Blue, Red, and Green.
- Something cardboard. (Painted to look like something heavy)
- PJ Masks costumes.
- Night scene wall. (Optional)
How to set up your PJ Masks party activity:
Fun With Cardboard
Find a larger cardboard box. Carefully take it apart and put it back together inside out. This makes it easier to paint. You want to paint it as something “heavy” for Gekko to move using his “Super Gekko Muscles!” I turned mine into their headquarters, but you could just as easily paint a giant boulder or rock… Here are a few pictures of how I made the HQ.I turned a tall box inside out. After that, I added slits to the top and bottom to help give it shape. Once I liked the shape I glued it back together using hot glue. Clothes pins are perfect for holding it together until dry. Using tempera paint I created the characters from an image I found online. I added wings and ears from scrap pieces of cardboard I had around the house. I did use a pipe cleaner as well as glue to attach the wings to make them a bit more stable. Then using triangles folded quick ears for the top and attached with more hot glue.
Next, I created a quick night scene. Since they are always fighting crime at night. I wanted to have a good photo-op spot, and this was perfect. I created the night scene by cutting the top off a huge piece of cardboard to look like the tops of buildings and painting the whole thing black.For the windows, all you need is yellow construction paper. Using different sized squares you can create different buildings in your silhouette. Attach with paint, sticky dots, or glue. You could easily just lean this up against a fence or wall. If you want to take it another step you can place it in front of a bench.We poked holes and secured it in a few different places. This way the kids could get behind the skyline. They loved that.
Creating the Activity
Using your red paint create a fun line that swirls around.Using the green paint create a line that leads to a box a little bigger than your “heavy” object.Last, make a blue line that zig-zags.
Instructions for your PJ Masks party activity:
Add your PJ Masks costumes at the beginning of each section.
If you can, place an adult at each location to help with their costumes and give quick instructions. Remember they are young.
Let the Activity Begin!
First, we start with Owlette. Help them put on their wings and fly using their “Super Owl Wings”, along your swirling line. She will land at the next station where she will change over into her Gekko gear. Next using their “Super Gekko Muscles” they will run up to the heavy object and move it out of the square. This one was the best. The kiddos would grunt and groan like it was so heavy!Next, they will swap out for their Catboy costume. When they are ready they can start running the zig-zag lines using their “Super Cat Speed”
When they are done they can pose for a picture. Once everyone went through once we just let them play dress up and enjoy all of the costumes.
This made for some great pictures and of course great memories for all of the kids and adults at the party. Once they completed their mission they picked out their favorite character shirts and bracelets.
This activity was so fun! The little ones loved dressing up in all the different costumes!
