    • Drink me tags (hook to bottles)
  • Buy Sticky name tags and put girls names written backwards then AKA real name (We’re all Mad Here)


Encourage your Girl Scouts to dress up as their favorite characters from Alice in Wonderland. Whether it's Alice, the Cheshire Cat, or the Mad Hatter, let their imaginations run wild and watch their excitement grow as they become part of the fantastical world.

Engaging Activities

Plan a variety of activities that align with the theme. Below are a number of different activities I did at our Alice in Wonderland event. 

Mystery Meal at the Mad Hatter Tea Party

Everyone gets a Mystery Meal Menu, they must select what they would like to eat for each course and put their names on menu. Once everyone’s order is in we went ahead and begin filling orders of each girl. 

The water was put into teapot water bottles. They were perfect for the theme and even better they were sturdy and very well put together. I would purchase them again and highly recommend them if you plan to do a Alice in Wonderland theme.

(Everything must be discarded before the next course, except the water or tea that they can keep throughout.) 

In between courses Mad Hatter will say “Clean cup, Clean plate, move down move down! Everyone change places” and everyone has to move places. If they have already received their water cup or tea they need to make sure to move with that as well. 

March Hare’s Sugar Cube Madness

Purchase and/or find a variety of teacups (We used tea cups from oriental Trading Get them here), and sugar cubes. Put teacups into two groups at one end of room (depending on age determine distance from girls), and put girls onto two teams at other end, giving each group a set number of sugar cubes. Set the timer for 5 minutes and tell the girls they have to try to get as many sugar cubes into the teacups as possible in 5 minutes. When they run out of sugar cubes to throw run down and pick up any on ground and come back and try to get into teacup again.

Queen of Hearts: Paint the Roses

Draw and color two trees on heavy poster board, and cut holes to place the white roses into (12 roses). Create two teams, the girls must race down one at a time and replace the white roses with a red rose, whichever team can “paint” their roses first wins.

Croquet with Flamingos and Hedgehogs

Draw a flamingo on poster board and cut out and connect to the croquet mallet. Lay out a course with playing cards. Create two teams; each person the team must hit the hedgehog through the course. When they get to end, pick up the hedgehog and run back to next person on team. First team to get every girl through the course wins.

Building a army (Junior and up)

Using a oversized playing cards set, have girls get into teams, and build a tower of playing cards Lean two cards together to create a upside-down ”V” Do that with 1 more set of cards next to that one. Then lay one card horizontal on top of them. Then add another set of cards next to the two existing points and repeat process. If you want to go 4 high you will want to start with 4 card sets on bottom.

Save the Army and Avoid the Queen (Daisy and Brownies)

The queen of hearts has an army of cards; the focus of this game is to avoid the queen. You will need two decks of cards with the same pattern on the back. Also remove two queens from another set of queens so you now will have 4 queens in the game. Shuffle the cards and place them all flat on the floor. Play the game by girls taking turns flipping over 2 cards. This is just like the memory game; if they match the girl keeps the cards. If they flip over a queen of hearts they loss their next turn. The winner is who ever have the most matches at the end of the game.

The White Rabbit Scavenger Hunt

The white rabbit was always late to everything. Everyone needs to hurry up and find everything on the list (create a list of items that your going to hide) before we run out of time. Give girls a certain amount of time to find everything, and make sure the rabbit is continually telling them “Your late, Your Late, we must hurry”

Always the Opposite With Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum

Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum are twins but they always want the opposite things, so lets play the opposites game. Cut up the opposite words, put girls into two different teams. Give each team one set of words, the other set (the opposite) have leader playing Tweedle Dum and/or Tweedle Dee characters, When starting the leader will call out a word, example “UP” card the team has to look through their pile find the opposite “Down” and run it to leader, team to get to leader first wins cards. Team with the most cards wins.

Caterpillar Bubble Blowing

The caterpillar loves to blow bubbles, why not have the girls do the same. Purchase bubbles for each girl. Have girls put their names on a heart. Have girls stand in a line, and one at a time blow a bubble and see who can blow a bubble that will go the furthest. When the bubble pops put the heart with that girls name on it down on the ground, after all the girls have gone the girl who’s bubble went the furthest wins.

Disappearing Cheshire Cat

Cheshire cat disappears and reappears a lot. Hide his smile all over the girls who finds the most smiles wins. Also Hide 6 full size cats, the girls that find the whole cat win a prize.

Engage your Girl Scout troop in an exciting game inspired by the elusive Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland! Hide Cheshire Cat smiles throughout the party area and challenge the girls to find as many smiles as they can. The girl who discovers the most smiles will be crowned the Cheshire Cat Smile Champion and receive a special prize.

By following these tips and ideas, you'll be well-equipped to throw an unforgettable Alice in Wonderland themed party for your Girl Scout troop. Remember, the key to a successful event lies in attention to detail, creativity, and embracing the magic of Wonderland. So, gather your troop, indulge in curiosity, and let your imaginations run wild as you create a party experience that will be cherished for years to come.

Enjoy every minute being a leader and continue to inspire your girls!
