Mad Hatters Tea Party
It’s time to give Rainbows another opportunity to Party, Party, Party! This time we are
going to Wonderland for a Mad Hatters Tea Party.
Girl Guiding Anglia is holding a Mad Hatters Tea Party at Hautbois on 7 & 8 July 2012,
however you may also wish to organise a Tea Party in your County to save your Rainbows
travelling time and expense. We’re sure you all know your County’s preferred venues so
we have put together this pack of quick and easy ideas to inspire you to hold a Tea Party of
your own within your County, Division or District. Add this to some ideas of your own and
we know that your Rainbows will have the most wonderful time!
We have also included copies of the necessary forms, letter templates and some useful
websites.
A table cloth centrepiece will be included with this pack, and a larger centrepiece is
available on loan from Anglia Region if wished, with additional stickers and balloons also
being available from the Region office. For digital copies of any of the pack contents
please contact the Region Office on 01603 737 357 (option 1) or email ang[email protected]
girlguiding-anglia.org.uk. Hard copies are available on request but will incur an additional
printing and postage charge.
It is hoped that each County will hold their event during 2012 and in doing so raise further
funds to enable completion of the planned Rainbow Zone at Hautbois, just as the Rainbows
themselves have designed it.
To this end we have a very attractive badge that no Rainbow would want to be without! –
see the badge below! A badge order form is included in this pack.
We hope you have a great time at your Tea Party and will soon enjoy a visit to the new
Rainbow Zone at Hautbois.

Some Ideas To Get You Started
• Bunny ears for everyone
• Make a large wooden or cardboard Cheshire Cat and each
Rainbow to ‘Pin the Grin’ on the cat.
• Have someone dressed as a White Rabbit appearing
randomly throughout the day shouting “I’m late, I’m late”
or asking people what the time is.
• ‘Time’ could be a secondary theme – try the ‘One Minute
Challenges (see pg.36).
• Have a tablecloth competition for the Unit with the best
design. Offer a small prize for 1st, 2nd & 3rd. • Cupcakes with ‘Eat Me’ labels (see pg. 5) or jam tarts for
everyone before they leave.
• Make edible tea cups – recipe included (see pg.26).
• If venue allowed –could each activity be food based and
Rainbow make their own Tea!!!
• ‘Drink Me’ potions, ‘ Eat Me’ biscuits, jam tarts, sandwiches,
marshmallow caterpillars etc.
• Don’t forget about the Mock Turtle, Gryphon, Lobster
Quadrille, Walrus & the Carpenter. All these poems can be
found on-line.
• Tweedle Dum & Tweedle Dee – could
this be a matching game?
• Do a Caucus Race. (see pg. 31).
Make your guests run round in a
circle and when you shout ‘stop’ the
last one to sit down or run to the
middle is out. Or make a caucus
version of ‘musical chairs’. (List of
music included., see pg. 33).
• Hide a soft toy rabbit somewhere on
the site and offer a small prize for
the finder.
• Follow a trail of large rabbit
footprints to your craft tent or large marquee.
• Could you get your local ‘Paint your own pottery’ cafe/
company involved to paint cups and saucers?
• Make your own place mats using images of Mad Hatter
(found online) and then laminated or put in A4 plastic
sleeves.

paper or similar to Alice’s arms, legs and neck.
3. Pull Alice to make her larger or smaller!
25
Make some edible tea cups
There is no shortage of teacups at the Mad Hatter’s UnBirthday party. In fact, the cups rotate around the table
so quickly Alice never gets so much as a sip of tea. Made
from ice cream cones and cookies, these edible cup-andsaucer treat holders are easy to assemble and will ensure
that each guest at your tea party gets his or her fill!
You will need:
• Cup-style wafer ice cream cone
• Round sugar or shortbread
biscuit
• Decorator’s icing
• Two chewy ring sweets
• Assorted sweets and popcorn to
fill the teacup
How to make:
1.Use a serrated knife to carefully cut the cup portion
of the ice cream cone from the handle (job for the
Leader). Discard the handle and set the cup aside for
now.
2.Place a chewy ring sweet on the centre of the biscuit,
using decorator’s icing to “glue” it in place.
3.Set the ice cream cone cup on top of the chewy ring and
then use a thin line of decorator’s icing to hold the
cone in place (if needed).
4.For a teacup handle, slice the second chewy ring in
half. Gently press the cut ends of one of the candy halves
against the cone to stick the handle in place.
5.Fill the cup with a few sweets or other snacks…and it’s
teatime!
26
Make some bunny rabbit ears!
Materials:
• Paper
• Tape
• Scissors
Instructions:
1. Make a strip of paper long enough to go around the Rainbow’s head (you
may need two tape to pieces end to end to get it long enough.
2. Print, colour and cut out the ears
3. Tape the ears onto the strip
OPTIONAL
• Decorate the strip with stickers/markers/etc as desired
• Tape the strip in a loop so it fits on the head
27
Make a mad hat for your party
You will need:
• Newspaper
• Masking tape
• Scissors
• Flowers (you can use fresh or artificial flowers)
How to make:
1.Take 3-4 sheets of newspaper and mould over each
Rainbow’s head.
2.While holding the newspaper in place, wrap masking
tape around the head to create the mould for the hat.
3.Starting at the forehead, begin to roll the brim up
tightly.
4.Take time to tape your flowers in place around the hat.
Then finish by rolling up the brim.
And here is the end product!
28
Make a flamingo croquet stick!
Make a game of croquet with sticks made from rolls of
newspaper with a flamingo head made out of thick card stuck
on. Cut around this flamingo head:

Party ideas!
Have a Caucus Race
The Dodo organised a duck, a dodo, a lory, an
eaglet, a crab, a magpie and a canary into a Caucus
race. The silly creatures had no idea how to race properly, they just ran around in circles for half an
hour then shouted for prizes. Alice gave them a silver
thimble from her pocket and for a treat she shared
out a box of sweets among them.
How to have your own Caucus Race:
Make animal masks.
Have a silly race e.g. sideways like a crab, waddle like
ducks or try racing in flippers.
Share out sweets!
All these creatures, along with a mouse, swam in a
deep pool made by Alice’s tears. A big wave washed
everyone up onto the beach.
You could have a plastic duck
or plastic mouse race or make
your own floating creatures
and try them out in bowls of
water (or a paddling pool).
You could have a competition
for the oddest looking
creatures or the one who floats
the longest.
31
Lets do some party activities!
Make your own magic ‘Drink Me’ potion!
1.Design your own recipes
2.Give the Rainbows a choice of
different squashes, lemonade etc to
mix their own glass
3.What will thier potion make them
do?
Make your own magic ‘Eat Me’ cakes!
1.Link with healthy eating - using fruit
for treats
2.Decorate your cakes with ‘Eat Me’
labels (in this pack).
Make a Blue Caterpillar
1.Use a piece of blue material
2.Roll it round a thick marker pen
3.Stick the edges together to form
caterpillar shape
4.Decorate it with glitter glue perhaps smoking a funny looking
pipe?
The Dormouse in the teapot
1.Have a teapot treasure hunt to find
the dormouse.
2.You could make different cardboard
teapots, with one hiding the
dormouse.

Fill the teapot game
How to play:

2.Each team has a teapot on a table.
3.At the opposite end of the room is a bowl of water
and each team has their own miniature tea cup and
saucer.
4.Do a relay race.
5.The rule is the first team to fill their tea pot wins.
6.Each player is to dip their tea cup into the water and
place it on the saucer.
7.They then continue back and forth, each successful
player going to the end of the line until the teapot is
full!
34
Games for the Tea Party
A Mad Hatter Tea party would not be complete without
lots of silly games, answering silly riddles and of course
playing lawn croquet is always fun.
You may want to provide copies of pictures of roses,
characters or even tea pots and tea cups to allow them to
colour or paint. We’ve enclosed some for you.
Make a “Pin the Hat on the Mad Hatter” game supervised
as the girls play.
Find Dormouse: Hide Dormouse and let the Rainbows
look for him.
Have everyone wear a name tag with their name spelt
backwards. Then have everyone use that as their name
for the day. Or pin the name of a character from the story
on everyone’s back. Each has to ask for clues to guess who
the character is.
Make silly rules that when you talk to someone and they
answer they must say the opposite of what it is they really
want.
“I’m late, I’m late” game: Just like a potato sack race.
Have everyone put on bunny ears and jump across the
hall/lawn saying “I’m late”.
Put Alice in Wonderland character names in a hat and
have everyone pull one out. Then have everyone act out
who they are.
35
