You can also have special tournaments and award prizes to the winner.
Sonic Themed Photo Booth
This one is always a hit with all the guests. Get props like big foam hammers, glasses of different characters, masks and other stuff. Then let your guests pose in front of the camera and take many pictures they can keep as a memory. You can also have a photo booth at the entrance for guests to take selfies with their favorite characters and upload them on social media platforms.
Sonic Scavenger Hunt
The best way to make kids busy and entertained is to organize a scavenger hunt. You can make the game more interesting by adding clues about the series and characters. Divide kids into teams and let them search for items like rings, chaos emeralds, etc. The team who finds all of them first will be declared the winner. I’m sure it will be an excellent time for all the kids at the party.
Sonic Trivia Game
And lastly, let’s not forget about the adults who will be attending your Sonic-themed birthday party. You can keep them entertained by setting up a trivia game and asking them questions about the series, characters and video games. Seeing how much people know about the Sonic the Hedgehog world is always fun.
These are just a few ideas to help you plan your perfect Sonic the Hedgehog party. Have fun and let your creativity flow. With a little planning, your party will surely be a hit with all the kids.
