hunger games party on a shoestring

the DVD release for the hunger games movie is this saturday!
have a DVD release party! decorate, watch the movie, do these fun activities, and eat the food from the hunger games!

attendance is mandatory!
made in district 7 (trees, lumber = paper)
use the font from the movie; bank gothic.
click here for this free printable invitation i made for you :)
the actual printable is a bit larger and clearer
print onto colored paper :)
  • print out or purchase movie/book posters to hang
  • copy the mockingjay from the cover and cut it out and
  • hang up mockingjays around the party
  • have toy parachutes attached to your party favors
have everyone dress up:
  • like tributes
  • like the oddly bright citizens from the capitol
  • like Effie! haha
  • like Katniss, Peeta, Gale...
crafts & games:
  • make iron-on tee shirts with the mockingjay or the words: "may the odds be ever in your favor"
  • make bookmarks from cut pages
  • to really save money you can print out the mockingjay and trace it onto a white tee shirt (or other things) with a sharpie. 
    • for my daughter's thick shirt i had to hang it on a window for light to see what i was tracing since i don't have a light box :)
    • pin a target on a wall or better yet, have a stuffed animal set up to shoot toy arrows at
    • play manhunt
    and here is an SVG file you can download here
