Select Perfect Themes for Kids Birthday Parties

Are you planning a birthday party for your child? Before getting started with the party planning, it’s a good idea to explore kids birthday party themes and select the best one. Having a theme to work from makes the rest of the planning process much easier. Not to mention kids love themed parties and you’re child and his friends are sure to have the time of their lives if you pick a theme they are fascinated with. Here are some time tested theme ideas you can consider using for your child’s party.

1. The Luau Party

Make your child’s party feel like a tropical getaway by planning a luau party. Some fun items you can use for your luau party include leis, hula skirts, flowers to put behind each child’s ear, shell necklaces, and Hawaiian tattoos. Some dishes and drinks appropriate for serving at a Luau party include Hawaiian punch, coconut shrimp, pineapple chicken, and Hawaiian pizza.

Games that you can play at a Luau party include making paper leis and having each child create his or her own “ocean in a bottle.” To make an ocean in a bottle, simply add water, baby oil, and blue food coloring to a small baby food jar or other kind of container and have the children add beads, small sea shells, and glitter. The container can be glued shut so the children don’t spill it by accident.

2. A Birthday Kid Party Based on Your Child’s Favorite Book, Movie, or TV Show

Is your daughter obsessed with Hannah Montana? If your daughter is possibly Hannah Montana’s number one fan, give her and her friends a birthday party to remember by making it a Hannah Montana-themed party. Rent a karaoke machine so the girls can have fun singing and dancing and provide make-up, jewelry, scarves, and other fun fashion items so the girls can play dress up.

Batman-themed parties are fun for boys. You can decorate a batman party with batman posters, balloons, and streamers. Give each child in attendance a batman cape and mask to wear for the party. You can also use face paint to paint masks on each child’s face if you prefer. Play the classic game of follower the leader but instead make it “follow the joker.” Have the children take turns wearing a jester’s hat to be the joker. Kids birthday party themes based on other superheroes are also a big hit. You can even base a party on a general superhero theme and have the children dress up as their favorite superhero.

3. The Pirate Birthday Kid Party

There are few party themes more successful with children than the pirate birthday. There are a plethora of great activity and decoration ideas for the pirate party theme. The invitations to your pirate party can be made to look like treasure maps. Use red and black balloons and streamers to decorate your pirate party. You can also make treasure chests out of cardboard boxes and put costume jewelry in them to use them as decorations or centerpieces. Organize it so that every child wears a pirate costume to the party and don’t forget to hang up a Jolly Roger flag in front of the house to create the pirate ship atmosphere. One of the best games to play at a pirate party is a treasure hunt so each child can go home with goodies.

In conclusion, there are a vast amount of fun kids birthday party themes you can use to create an exciting and unforgettable birthday bash for your child. Don’t settle for the usual cake, pin the tail on the donkey, and balloons when you can have an action-packed party that is more fun for the children and easier for you to plan and set up. Give your child a birthday to remember with these great party ideas.
