Fun Themes for Kids’ Parties
When you’re planning your child’s birthday party or any other festive kid’s occasion, choosing a fun theme will help tie the celebration together. To make any theme successful, it’s important to follow through with it in every detail of party planning. In creating your party plan, you’ll need to think about invitations, games, decorations, kids labels, and gift bags or party favours. Some parties will involve themed fancy dress, while others will be more laid-back. You can incorporate your theme into your party snacks, cake, and beverages as well for an entertaining occasion to remember. The following are a few ideas to get started.
One of the easiest party ideas is to take the season of your child’s birthday and use this as a theme. For example, if your child was born in the winter, decorate the house with paper snowflakes and glittery fake snow. White frosted cupcakes and mugs of hot chocolate will warm the kids up. For a spring birthday, you can use bright floral patterns and leafy garlands to brighten up the room. Plastic bugs and chocolate earthy cake can be fun for kids to play with. Use the bright tones and crunch of autumn leaves in a fall party, or use the garden for a summery “beach” party with a kiddie pool and oversized sunglasses.
A nautical theme is perfect for children who have an interest in boats and sailing. You can decorate the invitations with colourful sailboats and preppy stripes, and festoon your home in striped bunting. Anchors and sails are an easy motif to follow throughout the decorations. Party favours can be labelled for each child with names tags UK, with each child taking home a gift bag filled with nautical goodies. Top your blue and white nautical cupcakes with a paper sail on a toothpick, for a maritime treat.
There’s nothing like a day at the circus to get kids excited! You don’t have to hire an elephant to get this same excitement, but you can decorate your house with plenty of colourful balloons and circus-themed decorations. Hiring a clown to perform basic stunts or make balloon animals for the children is a classic party treat. Other entertainment ideas could include playing a mix of classic circus tunes, and featuring games like walking a mock tightrope. Creating a dress-up tent with clown noses and sequinned clothes can encourage kids to clown around and take some great photos to take home.
Little girls love dressing up and being ladylike. An old-fashioned tea party is a timeless classic, but you can give it your own twist depending on the ages and interests of your little guests. You can encourage dressing up by offering feather boas, fancy Victorian hats, and long elegant gloves. These are all available at party or costume shops, and are perfect party favours to take home after the tea. For the main event, you can set up a table in the garden if the weather permits and serve tea, juice, cakes, and other treats.
By using your creativity and thinking about your child’s main interests, you can ensure that all guests will have a fantastic time at your next kids’ party. Taking the time to plan ahead will help make the big day as stress-free and fun as possible.
