We’re off to see the Wizard. After the party guests decorated their sugar cookie houses they went outside for some games. They had to earn their courage like the Cowardly Lion, their heart like the Tin Man, and their brains like the Scarecrow. For courage they had to fall back into the arms of another party guest–this was harder than it seems. To make the courage medals I wrapped peppermint patties in aluminum foil and hot glued them onto sparkly paper. I punched the “courage” tags out with a circle punch.

To earn their heart they had to do a good deed–they took some flowers over to an elderly neighbor who loves flowers. To make the heart necklaces I tied small heart charms onto thin red ribbon.

And last, to earn their brains they took a quiz about the Wizard of Oz movie. After they all “passed” the quiz I awarded them an official certificate. I used these Wizard of Oz rings from Bake it Pretty for the certificates.

After they finished the games, the girls ate lunch. I’ll show you more about that next time. For more pictures and ideas from the Wizard of Oz Party, click on the tag below. Oh, and all of the gorgeous pictures from this entire party were taken by the gorgeous Nicole Gerulat.


  1. Love the idea of using the rings to wrap the certificates in!

  8. Hi! I love the scarecrow diploma idea and would LOVE to do the same thing for my daughter’s 4th birthday which is coming up very very soon. I was wondering if you would e-mail the document you used or tell me where you went to make it or how you made it. This party was such an inspiration to me! Amazing job!
