Mickey and Minnie are favorite characters for many children from all over the world. And any youngster would be extremely excited about having a Mickey Mouse party for his or her birthday.
Here you’ll find a selection of ideas to make your party a total success. Let’s start with…
For your Mickey Mouse party invitations, take a photo of the birthday child posing with his or her favorite Disney plush toy. Print that picture on the front of the invitation cards. Write “Mickey & Minnie want you to come to (child’s name) Birthday Party.” Then write party information on the inside.
For a different idea, draw outlines of Mickey’s head (one large circle for head and two smaller ones for ears) on black cardstock. Next, cut out the shapes and write party details with red marker.
The wording can say “Oh, Toodles…Look who is turning (age). Join us for a fun celebration at Mickey’s Clubhouse.” Don’t forget to write the address and time of the party.
Lastly, you can print theme coloring pages off the Disney website. Then fold the paper in half, and write party info on the blank side. Mail the pages for the guests to color. This idea works especially well for a toddler party.
For Mickey Mouse party decorations, use red, white, yellow and black colors.
Cut a large Mickey’s head shape out of black construction paper, and mount it near the entrance.
Draw footprints of Mickey with chalk on the walkway leading to the front door. Post a sign that says “Welcome to Mickey Mouse Clubhouse!”
Spread out Disney theme stuffed toys around the scene. Put up posters (or pictures) of Mickey and friends on the wall. Hang balloons and streamers in bunches around the area.
Draw the Mousekadoer (giant Mickey-head shaped computer) on a large piece of paper and tape it to the wall. Hang a sign that reads “Meeska Mooska Mickey Mouse.” Play tunes from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
Cover the party table with red or yellow table cloth. Print and laminate pictures of Mickey and Minnie, and have them at each setting for placemats. Tie balloons to the back of the chairs.
Guest Arrival and Introductory Activities
*Disney Transformations: As children arrive to the party, give them Mickey Mouse headbands (available at party outlets) to wear during the event. Color the tip of their noses with face paint or black marker.
*Color Mickey: Spread out Disney coloring pages and dot-to-dots on the floor. Offer crayons and pencils to the kids, and have them color their favorite characters.
*Watch the Show: Invite the kids to watch an episode from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse while their waiting for all the guests to arrive.
For Mickey Mouse party favors, give out such items as theme stickers and coloring pages, Play Dough clay, bubble-blowing containers, crayons, Mickey headbands, Mylar balloons, and so on.
Mickey Mouse Party Games
*Mickey’s Easter Egg Hunt: Before the party, print and laminate pictures of decorated eggs. Next, hide them around the party area.
At game time, get the kids to find as many “Easter eggs” as they can. Give them clues, such as arrows drawn on the cards showing where to look. Offer help to younger kids in the group, and make sure that children find roughly the same number of eggs.
To make it more realistic, you might want to get plastic eggs (that open) from a party store. You can fill them up with candy and other prizes, and put theme stickers on the eggs.
*Mickey, Mickey, Goofy: Play a theme version of Duck, Duck, Goose game. If most of your party guests are girls, then you can name the game Minnie, Minnie, Daisy!
*Don’t Wake the Giant: This Minnie Mouse party game is a lot of fun for young kids.
Ask one of the adult to be Willie the Giant. He would lie down on the ground and pretend to be asleep. Place different toys close to the giant’s body (near his arms, legs, etc.). Get the kids to try to snatch the toys without “waking” the giant.
If the giant wakes up and spots somebody trying to pick a toy, that kid goes out the game and receives a prize. Let the very young kids stay in the game even if they get caught. They will be giggling with excitement.
*Bark Like Pluto: One at a time, have the kids demonstrate their best barks. Award prizes for the scariest, funniest, loudest, most real…bark. Set up the activity so each guest wins one prize.
*Meeska Mooska Counting Game: Here is a great activity for very young children that allows them to review (or learn) how to count.
Get the kids to form a circle. Have them hold hands and move in one direction in the circle. Say “Let’s find out how many Mickey Mouse Clubhouse guests we have tonight.”
Get one child to say “Meeska, Mooska, one” (with all the other kids repeating the line), then next child “Meeska, Mooska, two”, next “Meeska, Mooska, three”, and so on — until you finish going around the circle. Next, do the count backwards starting with the person who led off last round.
*Mickey (or Minnie) Says: Play a theme version of Simon Says game.
*Dance & Sing Along: Plug in a video of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse into your DVD player (or put on Mickey Mouse CD), and let the kids dance to the music and sing along.
*Birthday Pinata: Get a theme pinata (e.g. Mickey Mouse ears pinata) and let the children swing at it blindfolded, one at time, starting with the birthday child.

*Mickey Mouse Cake: Bake one 9″ round cake and two 6″ round cakes. Position the cakes so the bigger cake is the face, and two smaller cakes are the ears of Mickey.
Frost the face with white frosting. Print a picture of Mickey off the internet. Use that image as a guide to outline the face of Mickey with a toothpick. Use cake piping bags to add facial features in color. Frost the ears with chocolate frosting.
