#2. Alvin Themed Balloons
Decorate your party area with some red, blue and green coloured balloons to match the chipmunks sweaters. Create the letter A, from yellow tape, on the red balloon for Alvin, like Freckles, Dimple & Soul Fire did for their chipmunks themed party.

#3. Add some Air Guitars
ALVIN & THE CHIPMUNKS: THE ROAD CHIP is released in cinemas 12th February 2016 with paid previews on February 6th & 7th. Through a series of misunderstandings, Alvin, Simon and Theodore come to believe that Dave is going to propose to his new girlfriend in New York City…and dump them. They have three days to get to him and stop the proposal, saving themselves not only from losing Dave but possibly from gaining a terrible stepbrother.
Alvin & The Chipmunk Party Activities
#4. Make Your Own Paper Lei
If the 2011 “Chipwrecked” movie is the focus of your party theme, making your own paper leis would be a great party activity for older kids. All you need is some crepe tissue paper (in different colours), and a needle and thread. Watch this simple video to see how:
#5. Party Games
Create a play list of all the Chipmunks songs and use to play some music themed games like Chipmunks Musical Chairs and Chipmunks Musical Statues.
Another fun game could be Pin the Glasses on Theodore – a chipmunks version of Pin the Tail on the Donkey. Draw an oversized Theodore head on a large sheet of paper/card and create some cutouts of glasses on paper for the kids to pin on. Blindfold the kids and turn them around before getting them to pin their “glasses” Closest to the correct spot wins.
After have a dance-off with your favourite chipmunk tunes, with everyone doing their favourite chipmunk moves!
#6. Make a Paper Bag Chipmunk Puppet
This would be a fun activity to have the kids do at your Alvin & The Chipmunks party. These Paper Bag Chipmunk Puppets by I Heart Crafty Things are simply made using brown paper bags, paper card, glue and some crayons, and there’s even a downloadable pattern to simplify the process.

#7. Decorate a Guitar
For rock star fun, have the kids decorate their own guitars. Prepare a guitar for each guest from thin cardboard or card paper in advance, paint them white or silver as base colour, and then get each child to decorate their own guitar using paint, glitter, stickers.
Handmade Charlotte tells you how to make these fun guitars and even has a template you can use.
