Creative Themes For Fun Kids Birthday Party Ideas

Here talk about creative themes for your kids birthday party. Theme parties are always great fun for any
child’s birthday party. With the right kids’ birthday party ideas, you can create an experience that is fun,
cost-effective, and memorable. Does your child have a favorite movie, book, TV show, favorite character,
or maybe your child likes animals or has a favorite sport or past time. Well how about using one of your
child’s favorites as the theme for their birthday party. For most children, the birthday party is all about the
theme. If you build the event around a favorite cartoon character or television show, half your work is
already done. Most party stores, supermarkets, catalogs or Web sites offer an array of themed paper
plates, napkins and favors. Likewise, the party can also carry a generic theme, such as construction,
pirates, princesses, a favorite sport, ponies or the circus. Let the guest of honor’s preferences be the
driving force; after all, you’re striving to create their “day of all days.” But keep in mind what the guests
might enjoy, too. Once you’ve settled on a theme, it’s time to select a venue. Do you have the space or
the patience to host the event at your home? If not, you will need to find a suitable location that will be
appropriate rain or shine. Some parks will allow you to reserve a picnic pavilion so you’ll have a place to
serve cake and ice cream between games. But, if weather is a concern, you may be better off sticking
with an indoor facility so you won’t have to watch the weather report with bated breath. Planning Your
Party If your child is old enough, sit down with them and ask what kind of theme they’d like for their party.
Then, keeping your budget in mind, as well as space limitations and preparation time, choose a theme
and start making plans. Once you’ve decided on a theme for your child’s birthday party, you’ll find that
everything begins to fall right in place. Where to Have the Party The bowling alley is a popular option that
includes both genders and several age groups. Most alleys will accommodate a birthday party for kids,
and they offer package deals that are priced per child and include a predetermined number of games, as
well as shoe rentals. Ice rinks and indoor batting cages offer similar activities that keep you from coming
up with additional games to occupy the guests. Other options include beauty parlors, some of which offer
manicure or makeover parties for girls. Science and art museums also host kids birthday parties, often
providing a host to lead children through games like dinosaur digs or painting. Is a much-anticipated movie
coming out sometime near your child’s birthday? If so, consider a trip to the movies, complete with
popcorn for each guest. If you ask in advance, the theater may be able to advise you about birthday party
packages, or tell you when the most or least crowded times are. Kid Birthday Party Invitations You and
your child will have lots of fun putting together a creative invitation for their party. When wording your
invitation, try getting into your theme and have some fun. Use words and phrases that fit your theme. If
you’re having a Princess birthday party, you might make it a “Royal Invitation from the King and Queen.”
For a Pirate birthday party, write your invitation on a piece of brown paper bag crumpled up to look like old
parchment. Draw a map to your house and have “X” mark the spot. Then write something like this,
“Aaarrrhh, we be celebratin the birthday of Captain (your child’s first and last name) and ye be invited.”
Interactive invitations are lots of fun and help to get your invited guests involved in your theme right away.
For a Dinosaur birthday party you can send along a small box with a small plastic dinosaur “buried” in
glacial ice (wrapped in cotton). Then the recipient can “dig up” the dinosaur. For a Princess birthday party
you could have your invitation rolled up, tied with a purple ribbon and hand delivered by someone in
appropriate costume. Be creative and have fun with your invitation. Remember, it’s the first impression
your guests will have of your up-coming party. Get them excited so they can hardly wait! Kid Birthday
Party Decorating Ideas With your theme in mind, you can keep your decorations simple by using balloons
and streamers and by putting pictures on your walls that you’ve cut from magazines. Or you can be a little
more creative by turning your living room into your theme location. For a Dinosaur birthday party put blue
and white helium filled balloons on your ceiling to form a sky with clouds. Then hang dark brown, light
brown, green and orange streamers from the ceiling to the floor to make a jungle. Wrap some of the
streamers together to make your jungle thicker. For a Princess birthday party create a special throne
using a chair and decorating it with bright red and purple balloons and streamers. And maybe even use a
colorful pillow. Again, be creative and have fun. Kid Birthday Party Game Ideas Most party games can be
slightly modified to fit your theme. For a Blue’s Clues birthday party Pin the Tail on the Donkey can
become “pin the tail on Blue.” For a Princess party, Musical Chairs becomes “The Royal Musical Ball” and
you can play appropriate music. And speaking of music, music that is appropriate to your theme is perfect
to use during your games. Simply start a game when your music starts. You can easily find CDs for most
movies and TV shows. Kid Birthday Cakes There are a lot of great recipes available for theme birthday
cakes, or you can easily pick up a frosted cake then add “edible cake toppers” for your theme. Using
edible cake toppers is a great way to create a colorful, professional looking theme cake for your child’s
birthday. Kid Birthday Party Food Ideas If you’re serving food or snacks, keep your theme in mind and be
creative. For a Princess birthday party, serve finger sandwiches, candy sushi, royal colored jelly beans,
grapes, sparkling apple or grape juice or a “royal punch.” For an Incredibles birthday party, label your food.
Ketchup becomes “super sauce”, carrot sticks become “energy sticks” and you can even have a mini
“hero sandwich.” If you’re using an underwater theme like Finding Nemo, serve “peanut butter & jellyfish”
sandwiches, Gold Fish crackers and “tuna fish” sandwiches. Be Creative Even with a limited budget you
can be creative and come up with lots of fun kid birthday party ideas… Put just a little effort into your plans
and your child will fondly remember this birthday party for years to come. And don’t forget to take lots of
pictures and shoot lots of video of everyone having fun.
