Earlier this year, AnnArbor.com had an article on making paper lanterns that I immediately knew would be perfect for a Tangled party. I was right. The kids loved them. I bought a pack of 8.5x11 scrapbooking paper in shades of purple that was perfect. You could also do other sizes of paper. I let the kids draw their pictures and then I had an adult cut the paper for the lanterns and helped them glue them. I did not have enough child friendly scissors to let the kids do their own and I was not about to let a bunch of 5 and 6 year olds loose with regular scissors.

I also took advantage of owning Tangled (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo) by playing the BluRay on the family room TV and the DVD on the basement TV. I also have the soundtrack in iTunes and was able to use it in a game of Musical Chairs (the soundtrack is also available to download in MP3 format from Amazon ). This was the first time I played Musical Chairs and the kids really seemed to like it. Musical Chairs is best run with two adults - one to control the music and another to remove the chairs. We played several rounds. If you want to get fancy, you could make it Musical Thrones and decorate the chairs as thrones.
We also played Princess Says (or Prince Says) where the kids took turns giving instructions.
I had a few other ideas ready that we never used.
- Hot Crown (Hot Potato with a crown instead of a potato)
- Drawing Flynn's nose or Rapunzel's hair (printables from Family Fun)
Other ideas that I thought of, but did not prepare:
- Pin the frying pan on Flynn
- Crown Craft
- Hair fishing
