Bert / Chimney Sweep (dad dressed up)
“A sweep is lucky as lucky can be,
good luck will rub off when I shakes hand with you,
blow me a kiss and that’s lucky too.”Get everyone to shake hands or blow a kiss to the sweep.

 

DECORATIONS
 
Use children’s building blocks to say Happy Birthday.
Umbrellas hung open.

SETTING THE SCENE

use the free disney font from here
for the two signs
Put a sign on the front door saying
“The position in now filled”

Also hang a sign at the bottom/top of the stairs
“No sliding down the bannister”

When the kids arrived we used a tape measure and measured them from tip to toe.
We had pre-made name badges for them (with the Disney font ) with their name and   

For example:
 practically perfect in every way for Mary Poppins
extremely stubborn and suspicious
rather inclined to giggle 
and doesn’t put thing away

GAMES

 
Tuppence Toss
 
Made with a bed sheet and fabric paints
from family fun

A Very Respectable Horse Race
 
 
Sidewalk  Chalk Art
one of Berts from the movie.”you think, you wink, you do a double blink
you close your eyes and jump” 9into the chalk drawing)

(RAIN OPTION – a large roll of black poster paper that ran from end to end of a pasting table
and light colored chalk so the kids could make their own chalk drawings)

Step In time!

I Love To Laugh (we ended with this game)

“I always say there’s nothing like a good joke,
and that was nothing like a good joke!”

Tell them a few jokes
(they were told to try to keep a straight face as long as they could)
If they laughed they were out

Then we said “think of something sad”
“the wind has changed, time to go home”

And home time it was…

CUPCAKE PICKS

How tweet are these? (so sorry)
