Willy Wonka Party Ideas
A Willy Wonka party would be very fun and magical for your child and his friends. Not only will they enjoy all the fun activities and yummy treats, but they will also be reminded of the wonderful movie that they have watched. As long as you do it properly, you’ll be able to give them the feeling that they’re inside the wonderful chocolate factory!
The Golden Ticket: The Party Invitations
Remember how the movie started? The five children who were invited to the party found golden tickets inside chocolate bars that invited them to come inside the factory. Use the same concept for your child’s invitations. Print out the party details on gold paper, and then slip them inside chocolate bars. Then, have your child hand-deliver them to the guests.
Setting a Chocolaty Mood: The Decorations
You don’t have to stress yourself too much when it comes to the party decorations. If you have a talent when it comes to drawing, you can paint a backdrop that shows the main Chocolate Room of the factory, including the green fields, the realistic candy treats and the chocolate waterfall. Then, hang up balloons of different colors all over the walls to resemble gumballs. If you have poles or posts inside your home, get some red and white streamers and twist them around to resemble large peppermint sticks. Candy canes from your Christmas decorations can also be useful.

Sweet Treats: The Party Food
Since they’re inside a chocolate factory, your banquet should feature sweet and delicious treats. Serve different kinds of candy and sweets to your guests. Cake, cupcakes and ice cream should not be left out. If you’re worried that they might get sick, try to include healthy food items as well, or better yet, you can combine candy and healthy food items together. For example, a carrot cake with candy and frosting on top would be very delightful. You can also chop up fruit such as apples, pears and melons and then create a delicious chocolate sauce where the kids can dip them. As for the drinks, you can serve chocolate milk or fizzy drinks such as fruit soda.

Playing Inside the Factory: Party Activities
Let the kids enjoy their time inside the factory by thinking of fun activities that’ll keep them occupied. For one, you can get candy molds and let them make their own chocolate or you can have a sundae-decorating contest; the yummiest-looking sundae wins.
As for the games, the candy-guessing game and the jellybean toss are popular choices. The candy guessing game is simple. All you need is a large jar filled with candy. Then, let kids take turns at guessing how many candies are inside. The jellybean toss is played by dividing the children into two teams. The teams will line up and the kids take turns tossing jellybeans into a bucket. The team who gets the most beans inside their bucket wins.
Charlie’s Take Home Surprise: The Loot Bags
Letting your child have a Willy Wonka party will definitely be a wonderful and unforgettable experience. It’s even better than reading the novel or watching the book. Try out this fun party theme for his birthday, and watch his excitement as he enters the magical world of Charlie and Mr. Wonka.
