Listening to Joe, Nick and Nathaniel's discussion of Oscar parties reminded me about all the Oscar games and crafts I've been ambitiously bookmarking over the years. Maybe it's our overlong Chicago winters, but I seem to get an attack of laziness the week of the show and forgo the crafts in favor of making loads of comfort food. But really, I want that to change this year, because, how sweet are some of these ideas? Fun for everyone! Even the Oscar-averse.
Probably my favorite is the idea of spray painting Ken dolls Oscar gold. I love the idea of going all Goldfinger on a thrift store Ken, and getting a posable Oscar statue as a result.
More craft and game ideas after the jump...
Another one I've always been desperate to try is this movie quote plate craft.
Also, easy-to-make nominee award ribbons! Let everyone fight over Jennifer Lawrence.
Or print out this great 2014 Oscar party word find.
Or paste up an easy "who wore it?" game like this one.
Finally, you can try to get football lovers interested by copying Formal Fringe's fantasy Oscar draft game.
