Musical Unicorn Circle

Estimated time: 25 minutes


Select a unicorn bean bag and a bag of prizes. Seat everyone in a circle, and put on the party music CD. Kids pass around the unicorn bean bag while music plays. When music stops, player holding the unicorn wins a prize and steps out of the game. Continue until everyone has won.

Hidden Unicorns

Estimated time: 25 minutes


Every girl knows unicorns aren't always easy to find. In this game, she gets a chance to find and keep one for herself! Before the party, hide the unicorn bean bags around the yard or in a room. At the party, give your guests a chance to look for a unicorn until all of them have been found. Let your princesses know beforehand that they each get to find and keep one unicorn.

Elusive Apples

Estimated time: 25 minutes

  • small apple (with stem) for each child
  • string

Kids get to eat apples from the tree, just like unicorns would. Tie a piece of string securely around each apple stem. Hang from a household fixture, tree branch or swingset. Be sure apples hang low enough for kids to take bites without using their hands. It'll be challenging to keep the apples still long enough to eat them, and funny too!

Pin The Horn On The Unicorn

Estimated time: 15 minutes


A unique spin on a classic party game! Our Unicorn Game Kit includes everything you need to get your guests in prime party mode. Start by giving each girl a horn (Pro-Planner Tip: Write each girl's name on a horn before the party. Once the game is under way, you will have no trouble keeping track of whose horn is where). To play, place the included blindfold over your guest's eyes. The object is to get the horn as close as possible to the correct spot. Award a themed enchanted unicorn party favor to the girl that gets her horn the closest.


Fruit-filled Unicorn Horns

Estimated Total Time: 25 Minutes

  • large waffle cones
  • edible decorating gel
  • sliced fruit (berries, kiwi, apples, oranges, bananas, etc.)
  • real maple or berry syrup
  • shredded coconut (optional)

Delight the kids with these fanciful treats. Turn the waffle cones into unicorn horns by drawing a line (using decorating gel) that spirals around each cone from tip to top. Fill with sliced fruit. Drizzle with syrup. Top with shredded coconut.

Magical Sandwiches

Estimated Total Time: 25 Minutes

  • bread slice
  • filling(s) of your choice

Create a selection of sandwiches using a variety of fillings. To make them magical, simply cut the sandwiches into pretty heart, star and flower shapes using a knife or cookie cutters.

Unicorn Cake

  • box cake mix, prepared

Unicorn Snack

Estimated Total Time: 25 Minutes

  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 7 cups Bugles®
  • edible glitter (white, silver or gold)

This tasty treat uses Bugles, the popular corn snack that looks just like unicorn horns! Preheat oven to 300° F. Melt butter in a baking dish. Stir in cheese. Gently mix in Bugles until coated. Bake 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool 5 minutes. Sprinkle with a touch of edible glitter, and serve.
