Muno is the lovable red cyclops from Yo Gabba Gabba. If you’re having a Yo Gabba Gabba party, here’s a couple ideas games and activities involving Muno, such as Pin the eye on Muno, and muno-themed food like cupcakes with marshmallows.
Pin the eyeball on Muno
Make a big Muno character and put the large white circle that is his eye on the head (or download and print out the cutout, shown below). Then, make a couple black eyeballs for each child at the birthday party. Then, blindfold each child one at a time, and let them “stick the eyeball on Muno.” The one that places the eyeball closest to the center of the white circle wins a little prize.
Make your own Muno:
Give the kids sculpy clay and let them make their own Muno or other Yo Gabba Gabba characters.
Air Guitar Party: Make a magic boombox, push “play” on some Yo Gabba Gabba music, and let the kids dance around and have an “air guitar” party.
Muno Party Pictures:
Paint a life-sized (for kids) likeness of Muno, in his outerspace atmosphere. Cut out a hole where his head would normally be, and take the kids’ pictures as “muno.”
Muno Party Food
Because Muno’s most identifying feature is his cyclops eye, make Muno cupcakes for the party desserts. Top cupcakes with red icing, then add a marshmallow (cut in half) with a black or brown M&M candy in the center. (Use a bit of white icing to stick these together.)
For substantial party food, let the kids make individual pizzas. Encourage them to place their toppings to make “funny faces!” Provide healthy toppings.
Fruits and veggies go great with Yo Gabba Gabba decorations, because they are naturally bright in color. Strawberry and blueberry kabobs are fun treats. Fireworks of carrot sticks, celery sticks and broccoli are tasty treats.
Muno Party Favors
Put together party favor bags based on Muno, the friendly cyclops. Get red favor bags, and put a single eye right in the middle of the bag. Stuff the bag with brightly colored treats like skittles and licorice. Give the kids bouncy balls that look like eyeballs (these need to be large enough that they won’t pose a choking hazard). Put a small box of crayons and a little red notepad with an eyeball on the outside for the kids to color. Yo Gabba Gabba coloring books would also make nice favors.
