Club Penguin, a multiplayer, online role-playing game, was launched in 2005 and quickly became hugely popular with children of all ages, to such an extent that in 2007 the founding company was bought by The Walt Disney Company for a staggering $350 million. Club Penguin parties are great for fans of the game and with a little imagination, many fun party games can be created. Take inspiration from the Puffle--the small, fluffy creature available as a pet in the online game. There are nine Puffle colors: blue, green, pink, black, purple, red, yellow, white and orange. Each color has its own personality.
Pin the Puffle
- For your Club Penguin party, play a variation of the classic "Pin the Tail on the Donkey" game; instead of a donkey image, use a Club Penguin poster. Mark a spot on the poster for players to try to pin their Puffles; print Puffle images from the Internet and give them to players to pin on the poster. Make sure players are blindfolded. Award Club Penguin-themed prizes for the best attempts.
Find the Puffle
- Make Puffle shapes cut out of colored card stock and hide them around the house and garden. Create a scoring system based on the different Puffle colors. For example, one point for a blue Puffle, two points for a green Puffle, up to nine points for an orange Puffle. Hide many of the low-scoring Puffles and only one or two of the high-scoring Puffles. After the allocated searching time, calculate each player's final score and award Club Penguin-themed prizes to the top scorers.
- For some quiet time at your Club Penguin party, create a "Puffle Art" corner with easels, paper, crayons or washable marker pens and art smocks. Set the children tasks to complete, such as painting and decorating their Puffle characters; provide them with glitter glue, sequins and stickers. Display the finished Puffles on a board on the wall to be admired and hand out candy or party favors in recognition of the children's efforts.
