There’s a plethora themes for kids parties out there like Shrek, Cars, and SpongeBob, but there are some timeless themes that bring the greatest joy to children. You can incorporate these themes into every aspect of the party, including the food, games, decorations and entertainment. Here are our picks for the top 5 timeless party themes.
Mickey Mouse has been around for many years, and he’ll never grow old. He’s everyone’s friend and your child will love having him as the central theme of his party. Bring the whole gang in for good measure or take your pick from Goofy, Pluto, Donald Duck or Minnie Mouse. You’ll find just about everything that you need to build on this theme at party stores large and small.
Super heroes are a natural part of childhood. What child doesn’t have one? A Superman theme will be great for little boys, or choose Wonder Woman for your little lady. Plan superhero activities for the children to exercise their super powers and don’t forget to pick up the capes and bracelets to really draw them in.
The Pirates of the Caribbean movies and Jake and the Nederland Pirates keep children in the know when it comes to pirates and their loots. Get all the props; eye patches, swords, loose clothing and hooks to make your pirate themed party one that the children will always remember. Ask the partygoers to come dressed up as pirates, or you can have the outfits ready for them to don when they arrive. Take note that the latter option will cost a small fortune. A treasure hunt to search for buried loot will be lots of fun.
Princess parties for little girls are an absolute delight. The princess dresses, sparkling crown, magic wand and just the chance to be a princess, if only for a day, are all things little girls dream of. Ask the guests to come dressed as princesses and princes. Serve high tea and finger food just and have the royal guests sit at the table. As the hostess, you should also dress like a princess or hire a princess for a day. Give out tiaras and costume jewelry as party favors, or as prizes for specific novelty games.
Winnie the Pooh
Winnie the Pooh and his friends Tigger, Rabbit, Christopher Robin, Piglet, Kanga, Eeyore, Roo, Owl and Kanga are lovable childhood friends. This theme would be adorable for the younger ones. Decorate your room with all the elements of the 100 Acre Wood and have activities that center around these characters. Pin the tail on Eeyore, order a cake in the shape of Pooh, and give out miniature versions of the friends as a party favor.
