Webkinz Wheel of Wow - How to
make a spinning wheel
Make a spinning wheel using
foam core, colored paper, nails, wooden dowels and lots of
hot glue. Trace a large circle on foam core. Using a
sharp utility knife, cut out the shape. Divide the big
circle into multiple sections and cut out colored paper to
match shapes on the big circle. Paste on the colors.
Cut out a large hole in the middle of the circle about 1/2"
larger than the circumference of your dowel. Put dowel
through. Make a stand for the spinning wheel using
left over foam core. Secure the back-end of the dowel
to the stand. Put colored nails at the edge of the
spinning wheel. To play the game, kids take turns spinning the
Wheel of Wow. Assign different cash values and/or
prize categories to the colors on the wheel, so that depending on which color the wheel
stops, kids get to win a prize, kinz cash or loose a turn (see pic above).
Another fun game is playing
Webkinz Toss. Get 3 empty boxes in various shapes.
Decorate with colorful paper and put pictures of
Webkinz animals on them. Take pictures of your Webkinz toys
and print them out. Take turns throwing bean bags in
them. Place boxes at several distances. The
harder to throw in, the more kinz cash they get.
Another version of this
Webkinz Toss is to play the
jungle animal bean bag toss game (left). Kids have to
try to throw bean bags into different holes and they have to
try to score the highest score. The higher the score,
the more kinz cash they earn.
Scatter assorted gems in the
"mine" (basement) and let kids hunt for gems.
Make it exciting by dimming the lights low so the gems are
harder to find. Give each kid a flashlight for their
gem hunt and a Webkinz
bag. When they find the gems, let them keep the
gems to take home or they have the option
of trading their gems with Arte's Curios Shop for some kinz
Activity and Webkinz Thank you notes
Webkinz Crown of Wonder
After the hunt they can make
their Webkinz Crown of wonder with their gems. Get
gold crowns, extra gems and craft glue. Let the kids
stick on the gems onto their crowns. When the kids are
done with their Webkinz Crown, have them all wear 'm for
photo session. This makes a great a party keepsake or
use as a Webkinz Thank you note!
After all the kids have
collected their kinz cash, they can go to the W-shop to
purchase trinkets and favors to take home with their kinz
cash they have collected during the party! Get
Webkinz party favors or purchase
Webkinz clothing as their favors.
