5 Ideas For Children's Themed Parties

30 August 2023

Have you been tasked with planning your child's birthday party and need help figuring out where to start? Don't worry; we've got you covered. Kids love themed parties, and there are tons of great options to choose from - here’s our top 5:

Dinosaur party

Dinosaurs are always a popular choice for kids’ party themes. You can find dinosaur-themed decorations, games, and activities at most party supply shops. You can decorate your home or venue with dinosaur balloons, banners, and tablecloths. For food, you can serve "dinosaur eggs" (boiled eggs), "dinosaur bones" (chicken drumsticks), and "dinosaur footprints" (chocolate chip cookies). If you make it a fancy dress party, guests can come as their favourite dinosaurs, and you can have a dinosaur treasure hunt!

Princess party

Is your little girl obsessed with all things princess? Then a princess party is a perfect theme for her birthday bash. You can find pre-made party kits online or in stores. They generally come with everything you need to throw a magical party, including invitations, decorations, tableware, and even a birthday tiara for the birthday girl. For food, you can have a tea party with finger sandwiches and mini cupcakes. And don't forget the princess dress-up!

Lego party 

Does your child love playing with Lego? Then they'll adore a Lego-themed birthday party. You can decorate the room with large Lego bricks or life-size cutouts of popular Lego characters. For entertainment, set up a few building stations where kids can build their own brick creations to take home. When it comes to the food spread, include LEGO-shaped snacks like cookies or sandwiches cut out with cookie cutters. Kids can come dressed as their favourite Lego characters or in plain clothes and build their costumes from Lego at the party.

Superhero party 

Superheroes are always popular with kids, so it's no surprise that superhero parties are one of the most requested birthday themes. To pull off this theme, you'll need to decorate the room with superhero posters and banners. Make sure to choose a few favourite superheroes to focus on to avoid overwhelming guests with too many options. You can also set up a photo booth area where kids can dress up in capes and masks and strike their best superhero poses. And remember the snacks! Superhero-themed sweets like "Pow!" cupcakes or "Bam!" Rice Krispie treats are sure to please little ones and grownups alike. 

Pirate party 

Ahoy matey! If your child loves all things pirate, they'll have a blast at a pirate-themed birthday party. Start by decorating the room with pirate flags, lanterns, and treasure maps. Then set up some fun pirate-themed games like walk the plank or pin the patch on the pirate. For the food spread, fill bowls with crisps shaped like gold coins, healthy veggie sticks styled as swords and cherry tomatoes as cannonballs.

Planning a child's birthday party can be daunting, but it doesn't have to be stressful. By choosing a fun theme and incorporating some creative elements, you can throw a party that your little one will remember for years to come.
