How to Make Your Own Toga
Of course, when you are making a toga costume, the first thing that comes to mind is a sheet...but you can find material in a fabric store that is much cheaper than rummaging through your linen closet.
Off To The Chariot Races
If your Toga party is outside you can have a Chariot Race as a party game. Just get some cardboard boxes and decorate them in paper or paint or you can draw a gladiator shield on each one. Cut out part of the bottom so someone can step into it and wear it...holding it up with their hands. Have your party team split into two or three groups. Have a cardboard chariot for each group and map a chariot race course in the yard. Make each team member put the chariot on, run the course, scream "Et Tu Brute" and return to the start line so the next team member can go. It is a funny, good spirited party game that will have everyone laughing. If you have a video camera, use it . This is one party game you will want to watch again!
You may want to make an extra chariot or two....those Roman Gladiators can be rough on cardboard!
