Anyone who knows Pippi Longstocking knows that such a party is not always as you expect. Pippi is not an ordinary girl, and she lives by her head.
How to organize a Pippi Party? In a Pippi Party, you send the invitation as a message in a bottle. Good clothes on a Pippi Party are odd socks, aprons, and daddy’s boots. Decorate your home with Pippi Quote, a lemonade tree, and gold coins. If you want to eat cake only then do it. But you can also serve pancakes if you like.
But please keep reading, and I’ll tell a little more about how to celebrate the birthday with a Pippi Party! You can also get some inspiration for this party on the side of the backward party. Pippi Party is probably the best we know, and I wonder if it is not to be Pippi who invented Parkour with the game “do not step on the floor.”
Invitations to a Pippi party
As always, it’s a good idea to start with the invitation. Once you get it, it sent off. You have time to prepare the rest. Pippi likes to send the message in a bottle, and so does her father. So why not write the invitation on paper as you roll it up and put it in a bottle. If you find it difficult to get hold of bottles, you can instead cut to a card in the shape of a bottle, glue, or use stapler and assemble the two parts so that it becomes a bottle. Let it rolled message stick up a little bit above the opening. But, it is safest to hand over the invitation in person anyway!
Tips on clothing
When it comes to Pippi, everything is a mess. And it’s fun when it comes to the moment where you have to find suitable clothes. A pair of large shoes or boots on their feet will be okay. Maybe dad has a couple that he can lend. Knee socks should preferably be of two different varieties, so let the kids share a pair so that you avoid buying a duplicate. A short blue or green dress is lovely to have and do not forget the apron, which can be red or yellow. Two large pockets will be there too, of course, so that she can bring the stuff she needs.
The hair’s red Pippi as we all know, but the most important is probably the braids who like to stand out straight. Use a long wire or something. You will probably get them in the right shape. In the face, you paint a lot of freckles. Pippi has plenty of them.
There are of course finished costumes and wigs to buy too if preferred. It can also be fun to come riding to the party on a horse.
Time to decorate
Pippi Longstocking has a lemonade tree. If you do not have a tree with a hole in, instead take any tree in your garden and hang the bottles from the branches. If you can not be outside, you get to use your imagination and create a lemonade tree indoors. There you can, for example, utilize the space under a staircase, behind a sofa or remove the door to a cupboard, cover the opening with cardboard and make a hole so that the kids can put their hand and pick up a drink.
Pippi makes love to make things back-and-forth, so why not succumb table instead. It’s nice with cutlery, but otherwise, usually, Pippi eats most items with your hands. And when it is a Pippi Longstocking Party, you get enough to follow that rule.
When Pippi clear away from the table, she takes hold of the canvas four corners and pulls it all together into a sack. Keep in mind that it is probably best if you use paper and plastic cups, so you do not risk anything breaks.
Hang pots here and there. Let a washing line, including socks, run from one side of the room to the other.
A suitcase full of money’s also good to have!

What can you serv att a Pippi Party?
In Pippi eat it backward and then you have to start with the dessert course. Cake first, and then another. Juice, cakes, and buns of all kinds should be served. Remembered that the cake should preferably be cream cake. It is the best Pippi know.
Sausage and spaghetti are also suitable. Those who take too much spaghetti in the mouth may need a pair of scissors to cut the bristles with. So make sure there are no such in the table setting as well.
When it is Pippi’s birthday, she provides gifts for the guests also. So instead of candy bags, you can wrap some gifts for the friends. Nice gifts for the friends are gold coins, sticks, lollipop candy, a nice seashell, or jewelry.
Instead of the fish pond, you can turn a box, bin, or the like so that it becomes a hollow stock. Use brown paper to decorate with, and then let the children shove his hand and catch the gift.
This is what you can play at the party
In a Pippi Party, we must, of course, play musical chairs. Set up as many chairs as there are children less one. Put them back to back so that children can walk around them so that it becomes a ring. All the kids are standing up, to begin with. When the music plays getting the walk around the chairs, but when it gets quiet, they quickly sit on a chair. Whoever is without a chair is out, and a chair is removed. Continue until there is only one chair and a child left. Tips to music, of course, Here comes Pippi Longstocking.
Decide which children should be police, the others are criminals. Let the bad guys stand in different places in the room but well away from the police. Now begins the game. Every time the police move, the bandits also moves. The police may take two steps, but the bandits may only take one. When the police come close enough to touch a criminal, he or she is out of the game. The last criminal, who is left at the end will be a policeman in the next round.
DO NOT TOUCH THE FLOOR
Just as the game is called so is this look that does not touch the floor. Place some cushions on the floor that the kids can jump between them and let them climb on sofas, tables, and chairs. Whoever touches the floor is out there so you have to keep your balance. Play music from the Pippi Longstocking movies meanwhile.
PLACE THE TAIL OF THE LITTLE MAN
Instead of putting the grumble on the pig, the children trying to pin the tail on the right Pippi’s horse little man. Put a blindfold on the child to bust the tail and have a pen that you select the name in which the tail ended, whoever gets there the tail closest wins.
WHERE IS MR. NILSSON?
If you have a stuffed animal that looks like a monkey, it comes in handy. Otherwise, you can make paper. Hide Mr. Nilsson somewhere in the room and let the children watch. When they need clues, you just say,
what bird fish or in between. The child who finds Mr. Nilsson first must hide him the next time.
FIND FIVE ERRORS
Let one or two children look carefully about the room where you are and then tell them to go out. Those who are left will now select five things that should be turned upside down, backward or inside out. Call in the children, or the child back now must try to find the five things wrong in the room.
