As part of our partnership with the Duval County Public School System, we offer school aged programming on every early release day. For this past early release day, we had a “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” party. It was a lot of fun and we were lucky enough to even have some tweens and teens show up to join in on the party. Here’s what we did:
- Make your own Greg Heffley mask.
Each child received a printout with Greg’s face on it. They cut out the mask on the dotted lines and I finished the mask by attaching some elastic string
- Diary of a Wimpy Kid word search
Pretty self-explanatory. The word search was full of words and names from the series.
- Diary of a Wimpy Kid trivia game
I asked trivia questions based on the series
- Diary of a Wimpy Kid True/False
We went around and recited facts about the series. The children took turns guessing if the facts were true or false
- Diary of a Wimpy Kid shame game
This is basically “never have I ever” but based on the series. Everyone started standing up. we went around saying facts from the books. each person sat down when a fact was said that was not true for them.
We rounded off the party with some popcorn and we listened to the audiobook version of Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw. I think that Greg, Rowley, Frank, Manny, and Rodrick would have approved!
