Magical Cake Hunt
What could be more fun than searching for the ultimate prize – the birthday cake! Give the kids a creative way to get ready to eat the cake.
Things you’ll need:
Pen or pencil
Before the guests arrive:
Step 1: Write clues on the index cards. Start them out at the cake table, and work backwards. The clue at each location should lead them to the next clue. In other words, the clue they find at the kitchen sink should lead them to the next clue, at the living room couch, and so on. The final clue should direct them to the cake table.
Step 2: Keep the cake hidden close to the cake table
When the guests arrive:
Step 1: Tell the guests that the wicked queen has stolen the birthday cake, and they must find it! Explain that she has left a trail of clues for them to follow. Read the first clue out loud, and send them on their way.
Step 2: When the guests are a clue or two away from the cake, put it back on the cake table.
Step 3: When they find the cake, sing happy birthday, and serve.
