What is the Encanto movie about?
Encanto is a Walt Disney Animation Studios animated film. The Encanto movie is about a young girl named Mirabel who lives in Encanto in Columbia. Every person in Encanto, except Mirabel, has been blessed with a gift unique to each person. When the magic gifts are in danger, Mirabel sets out to save the magic for everyone.
Let’s get to our Encanto party activities and ideas!
What kind of activities can you do at an Encanto birthday party?
There are lots of fun things you can do at an Encanto birthday party. You can have a “Find the Magic” scavenger hunt where guests have to find items from the movie, or you can have a themed party and serve Encanto-themed food and drinks. You can also play games like tag or hide-and-seek, or set up a craft table where kids can make their own Encanto crafts.
Did you know that “Encanto” comes from the Spanish word for “enchantment” or “charm”?
What to do at an Encanto theme party:
- Dress up in Encanto costumes (like this Mirabel dress or Antonio costume) or, if you have younger kids, have a dress up trunk, including butterfly wings, and let them choose their own Encanto party costumes!
- Have a piñata filled with candy and small toys.
- Play pin the tail on the donkey (or other theme Encanto games).
- Serve Central/South American food.
- Play music from the Encanto soundtrack.
