My son wants a Civilization-themed party for his 6th birthday. Since no party supplies exist I found cups/plates/etc with knights on them, and got an army tank pinata and tank cake decorations (I plan to make him an Earth cake). I always come up with activities and a scavenger hunt for my boys' birthdays, and am looking for Civ-related ideas. Since most of the kids will have no idea what Civ is (and can't really fully understand without playing as much as my 6 year old haha) I'm thinking that if it's sort of like "Around the World" themed that will work. I am going to play musical chairs with each chair marked with the name of a Civilization (like they're going around the world while music is playing & then have to stop in a place). I also thought I could possibly have each kid "be" a different leader (mini costumes or props?) so there's a little educational value (associating leaders with certain countries/civilizations). I also purchased several blow-up swords ("barbarian" and "samurai"), and enough gold coins to give several to each child (possibly in conjunction with the scavenger hunt). Any other ideas?? Thanks.
