Planning a birthday party and not sure where to begin? Your kid only turns each age once, so you want to make it memorable. One of the hardest parts is choosing a theme for their birthday. What do they like? What are they interested in? A sport? A movie? This is a good way to start making a list of possibilities, especially if your child isn’t sure what they want to do.
You also need to decide if you’re going to host it at a venue, or if you’re going to have it at home. Either way, there are so many possibilities. Here are a few ideas you might consider.
Sports Themed Parties
Many kids are into sports, so this might be a good place to start–especially if you’re inviting their teammates. A football party might be one idea if your child loves football. Football parties along with other sports themes, such as soccer and baseball, can be hosted at a facility for parties, or you can pick up supplies online or in stores.
Outdoor Movie Party
If your child’s birthday is during the summer, setting up an outdoor movie in the backyard under the stars is just what you need. You can pop the popcorn, grab some blankets and have a magical night. If the child is a little older, it might even be fun to host a scary movie night. This is one theme it can be a blast to make decorations for!
Shaving Cream Fun
Imagine instead of getting soaked with water, you get covered in shaving cream. Another outdoor-friendly party involves replacing all your typical water-fighting gear with shaving cream. You can fill up water balloons, make hats, and even dye some shaving cream and paint with it. You can really get creative with this theme — and the kids get to get messy, so they love it! Just remember to remind parents to send an extra set of clothes to the party.
Superheroes are hot right now, and kids love them. You can have a general superhero theme, or you can centre around a specific superhero. You can buy decorations and party favours, or you can make them yourself. You can have the kids dress in costumes, perhaps of their favourite superhero. It’s every superhero-loving kid’s dream!
This is a great idea if you have girls, but boys could enjoy it too. You could take the kids to a spa, or you can set it up at home. You can do mani-pedis, put on the robes, gather up some skin care products, and don’t forget the cucumbers! You can turn this into a day where the kids learn to pamper themselves.
So Many Possibilities
There are so many things you can do for a birthday party and so much room for creativity in everything. Whether you’re renting out a venue, or just throwing a party at home, these ideas can help you make your kids’ birthday one that he or she will always remember. It’s also a great way for them to express themselves, and share that with their friends and family.
