Kids' birthday party ideas are fun to conceptualize and plan on. There are so many great themes and elements that you can add to make the experience fun for your kid, his or her guests and yourself as well. This article will give you fun kids' birthday party ideas which you can use or can inspire you to come up with your own. Below are some easy to read and quick tips on planning a fun party for your kid:
1) Cupcake Themed Party
Nothing could be more exciting than a cupcake themed birthday party; that is if your kid is into cupcakes. They are so trendy right now that most likely your kid will rave about it. Ask him or her on what colors she would like to see and what flavors he or she likes to make the theme more precise. Then have plenty of cupcakes, toppings, and icing prepared. The birthday cake can be shaped into one big cupcake or you can have a cupcake tower with a candle on top of each. There should be kid friendly tables and chairs with a tray of toppings in the center of each table. Each kid is given one cupcake which he or she can decorate. You can also turn it into a contest.
2) Face Painting Party
An artistic kid would definitely enjoy a birthday party with a face painting theme or activity. Make sure to stay away from oil-based face paints since these can smear and can also be a pain to wash off. Look for non toxic face paint. Supply the kids with some makeup sponges and soft brushes, as well as lots of water.
3) Shape Party
Holding a "Shape" party is fun for little kids from 2 to 4 years of age. Ask your kid what his or her favorite shape is, and make it the theme of the party. For instance, if his or her favorite shape is "triangle" make his or her birthday cake, cookies, and plates in triangles. A fun shape would be circles, and you can incorporate cereals into the games and "prepare your own ice cream" activities.
4) Season Themed Party
A Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter themed party can bring the season into life in a kid's party, regardless as to what the current season is during the special day. Ask your kid what his or her favorite season is and you can prepare the right color scheme and elements into the party with almost any budget. For instance, if your kid wants a summer themed party, prepare a little portable kiddie pool in your backyard and work with bright summer colors. Food should be summer themed as well, such as fruit shakes. For example, you can create a winter wonderland with snowflake cut outs and silver glitter. The birthday cake can be one big snowman or a sled.
5) Baby Spa Theme
For kids who love to feel all grown up and get the rest and relaxation that mommy and daddy indulge in, a spa themed birthday party is a great suggestion. You can help the kids make their own safe and easy face masks out of mashed banana and oatmeal. Slice some cucumbers to put on their eyes and let the guests come to the party in bathrobes (with clothes underneath, preferably). Don't forget to light some scented candles (chocolate or peppermint).
Hopefully these suggestions have inspired you to plan a fun party for your kid. Get creative and there will be tons of exciting kids' birthday party ideas that you can come up with.
