We keep it simple…a table cloth and a few novelty Oscar statues.  But you could go all out with star decorations, red carpet, dim lights….

Oscars Party

Oscars Bingo:

Sometimes the show is pretty long and can be boring for kids, especially if they don’t know the movies or actors so this bingo game keeps them interested.

As an extra game hand out a copy of my Oscar Bingo Sheets (I have made 6 different sheets) to the kids along with some crayons.

You play for a straight bingo to win and leave it at that, but we play to see how many Bingos the kids can achieve throughout the whole night.  You can award each bingo a prize like stickers, a lollipop, small chocolates…be creative.

Cake made by my Teen Chef for the 2015 Academy Awards

I made red Velvet Cupcakes for our 2013 Academy Award party

Host an Academy Awards Party with your family to add a little fun to the end of the winter season.

Oscars Competition:

Print out the latest Oscars Ballet from the official website:

Before the show starts everyone must fill out a ballet using a coloured marker and write their name at the top.  My boys like to do this in advance and watch the trailers for the movies and nominees.

When the show starts everyone is assigned a ballet to “mark” that is not their own.  This is to ensure no cheating!!  Did I mention my family is competitive?

Throughout the show we like to announce the running totals to see who is in the lead.

At the end of the show the correct answers are tallied and the winner receives the chocolate rose (or whatever you choose) as the prize! 

Make A Special Party Drink:

Make a special punch or serve a bubbly drink like sparkling apple juice for the kids to give the party that red carpet feel.

Serve Party Food:

Make the evening special by serving an assortment of appetizers instead of dinner.

You can keep things on the healthy side by serving a veggie platter, crackers and cheese, corn chips and homemade salsa, hummus and pita bread.

Popcorn is perfect for a movie themed party as well

And we always serve up something sweet.  The last few years my teen chef has made some great cakes for the party.

The chocolate Rose...our annual prize!

Dress up:

Dress up can be as simple as sunglasses and fancy scarves or as elaborate as fancy clothes.

You can make your own microwave popcorn!  Put 1/3 cup of kernels into a paperbag.  Roll the top of the bag twice and microwave for around 2 1/2 minutes!
