Championship Belt Decorating
Let all of your guests look like the best of the best! Connect 2 pieces of 9x12 construction paper together with tape or glue, and cut them into an oblong belt shape (make 2 belts for each). Then, cut large circles (7" diameter). Each child will get a belt and a circle that you will use as the emblem in the center. Let them decorate their belts however they'd like, then take pictures of them holding the belts over their heads like champions!
Arm Wrestling Tournament!
Which superstar will reign supreme? Have a single loss elimination arm wrestling tourney for the birthday boy and his party guests! Have one match at a time. Once every child has played, have one winner play one other winner. (Do this with each of the winners) Once a victor has been chosen from the 3rd set, repeat the process until there are two children left. The winner of that wrestling match is declared the SMACKDOWN CHAMPION and doled out the Championship Belt!
Pin the Belt on the Champion
- WWE Standup
- champion belts (one for each party guest)
This is an awesome twist on the classic birthday party hit, pin the tail on the donkey! Print out championship belt pictures online (or use the championship belts the kids made) to try to pin the belt on the champion! You can use one of our sweet standups or purchase a WWE poster from the store.
ARE YOU READY TO RUMBLLLLEEE!!!!!!!!! Just kidding. No rumbling is necessary for this fun and safe piñata activity. Have each kid take a chance at pulling on a separate string of the piñata until it bursts open.
Hulk Hot Dogs
- beef hot dogs
- hot dog buns
Is your little one a Hulkamaniac? Serve up big, beefy hot dogs for his WWE party and call them Hulk Hot dogs! Have a variety of fixings for the kids so their hearty hot dogs can be made just the way they like 'em!
- tortilla chips
- nacho cheese sauce
- jalapenos (optional)
Nachos are all the rage at professional matches! Have a plate of chips and a cup of cheese for each child and let them sit down and watch a pre-recorded WWE match.
- ice cream (2 cups for each guest)
- milk (1/2 cup for each guest)
- green food coloring (5 drops for each guest)
- mint extract (1/4 teaspoon for each guest)
This delicious dessert drink is named after the current WWE champion Sheamus O'Shaunnessy! Toss all of your ingredients into a blender, blend until smooth and serve! (Add more green food coloring if until you get the green you desire) Kids will love them!
Super Star-fruit Kabobs
- seedless grapes
- star fruit
Use the guest of honor's favorite fruits and put them on a wooden kabob for a healthy snack for your wrestle maniacs! If star fruit is not in season, cut blocks of cheese with a star shaped cookie cutter and add them to your kabobs.
