Having a tough time coming up with something new for your child’s birthday party? Princesses and pirates are only two of many great themes around which to build a kids party. The possibilities are endless! So, let’s get busy here and throw a great birthday party for your child.
First, select a theme. Start by asking the birthday boy or girl what he or she likes. Bugs, dinosaurs, trucks, teddy bears? Your child’s interests are the perfect jumping off point for a party theme.
Kids Party Theme Ideas
“Living Things” Parties: Bugs, dinosaurs, jungle animals, pet parade, and zoo animals all make great party themes. All parties centered on living things can have names and faces for just about everything. You can even name the food! For example, Green Slime Frog Punch, Dinosaur Donuts, Puppy Face Pizza, and My Little Kitty Birthday Cake.
“Cat in the Hat”: Everything at this party will be based on Dr. Seuss and his marvelous books.
Construction Party: Bob the Builder is a great construction character to build your party on.
Try “Tangled,” “Cinderella,” “Princess and the Frog,” “Tinker Bell,” or “Beauty and the Beast.” You know which one is right for your little princess.

Sports Enthusiasts: Mix ’em up or pick the one sport that is your child’s favorite. Don’t forget about the possibility of an Olympics party, especially if the Olympics are right around the corner!
Superheroes: Superman? Batman? Spiderman? Green Lantern? Include them all or celebrate with that one special character your child likes most.
As soon as you settle on a theme, jot down some ideas, weaving that theme through everything you do. That will include the invitations, paper goods, decorations and banners, goodie bags, games and food.
