Liven up a Red Hat Party with fun games for all
Red Hat Ladies B.I.N.G.O is a great game that can be played by using Red Hat pictures such as red hats, shoes and other items placed on the B.I.N.G.O. boards instead of numbers. List each item that appears on the cards on small strips of paper or on ping-pong balls.
Guess What Is Under The Bowl. On each table place a large purple or red bowl with some underneath it. Be sure that the Red Hatters know not to look under the bowl beforehand (write do not touch in big and bold letters on the bowl with a piece of paper). Once everyone has settled in, give a sheet of paper, and pencil to all the Red Hatters. The host will have the guests at the Red Hat party write down the numbers they think are in the bowl. Give each table a clue as to what they think is underneath the bowl. For example, one table could have oven mitts in the bowl to the Queen Mother can say that the bowl contains something that is found in the kitchen. If a red Hatter guesses what is underneath the bowl they win the prize. If no Red Hatters guess what is underneath the bowl then offer the prize to someone who truly wants or needs.
Who's Receipt is That? Before the scheduled party is set to begin, encourage all party guests to bring a grocery receipt to the party. Have all the red hatters write their names on the back of receipt. Place all the receipts inside a bag or bucket of some kind with the Queen Mother the only one to access to it. To start the game, the Queen Mother reads the grocery list to the rest of the Red Hatters and they must guess who may have purchased the items. This is a great way to get to know fellow members and see what people should be or should not be eating (kidding). The first player to shout out the name or raise their hand first and calls out the correct name earns a point of party favor.
Most people will find that having Red Hat party games and printable activities will add the perfect touch to the party and make it a lot of fun.
