Go on a Ghostly Adventure with Pac-Man and Friends!
We all know and love Pac-Man from the classic 1980s video game of the same name. Then there was Ms. Pac-Man, Super Pac-Man, Professor Pac-Man, and before you knew it, you were all out of quarters (and you didn’t even get to have a go on Jr. Pac-Man!).
Now, Pac-Man’s back, and he’s got a whole new crew of Pac-People, too. Premiering earlier this year on Disney XD, Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures features Pac-Man returning to his old ghost-hunting ways. Alongside his friends Spiral and Cylindria, he protects Pac-World from the evil ghosts. If your child’s a fan of the show, then check out this Pac-Man Party Pack, man! The huge variety of Pac-Man party supplies and decorations contained within make party planning a breeze. Keep scrolling down for more of our Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures birthday party tips!
Life-Size Pac-Man Tag!
Before we show you the photo, just know that you’ll go down as the greatest parent in history if you pull this off. Ok, here it is:
That’s so cool. Draw a maze on the floor with some masking tape, and add some dots – you can use pennies, or plastic coins, or small candies. Taking turns, children try to collect as many dots as they can, while “ghosts” chase them around the maze. You’ll just have to make sure there’s no cheating: Pac-Man can’t go through walls!
Pac-Man Birthday Cake!
There’s a lot of different ways you can go here – it helps that Pac-Man is basically already a circle! Frost your child’s favorite flavor of round cake in yellow, and remove a wedge for Pac-man’s mouth (and maybe save that piece for Numero Uno). You can even add some round candies or white-frosted cupcakes, lined up to act as Power Pellets. Or, take a rectangular sheet cake and recreate the iconic maze layout from the first level :
The details are literally the icing on the cake!
Kids these days probably recognize Pac-Man from his new Ghostly Adventures video game:
But, we prefer to think of him from a simpler era:
If you can find an old classic console like an NES on eBay or at a garage sale (or in your closet!), switch it on, pop in the game, and show them how it’s done! Plus, the kids are sure to get a kick out of what games used to look like.
We’re about ready to Pac it in after this post, but let us know what you think – as always we invite you to share your party pics and stories with us on Facebook and Twitter. See you there!
Share and Enjoy
