Birthday Party Ideas For Kids

Are you tired of ordinary birthday party ideas for kids? Try to create a unique, extraordinary birthday party for your kid.

Here are some great birthday party ideas:

1- Throwing a surprise birthday party

It's always great to throw an unexpected party, but four or five year old kids hardly ever care about a surprise party. It’s best to plan the party with them.

As your kid will participate in the planning and preparation stages, he or she will enjoy it even more.

Let your kids express themselves freely. Let him/her pick decorations, menu, invitations and which friends to invite.

Popular boys birthday party ideas and themes:

  • Marvel characters and superheroes
  • Transformers
  • Dinosaurs
  • Sea creatures (e.g. sharks)
  • Football and other sports
  • Pirates

Popular thematic party ideas for girls:

  • Frozen
  • Minnie Mouse
  • Barbie Dolls
  • Teddy Bears
  • Pink Colour

2- Invitation list that includes his/her best friends

Let your kid invite their best friends. He/she can either create handmade invitations or invite his/her friends in person.

It would be better to invite families of their friends. Each kid might have a different allergy. You simply cannot keep track of which kid has what type of allergy. It would be easier to have their parents too.

Keep track of how many people you invited. It wouldn’t be enjoyable to have an overcrowded house.

3- Decorations

You may pick a decoration as part of your birthday party ideas for kids in two ways. You either have a theme or not. Let your kid fill up the balloons with air or hang a few decorations.

Theme party – Let’s Go to a Pirate Birthday Party

Theme parties are fun, because everything from cake to costumes are designed according to the theme. You may even request your guests to have theme based costumes.

But it also has some disadvantages. Finding balloons or theme oriented gifts might be problematic.

However, there are many other options for theme selection depending on your supplies and preferences.

Here are some themes to consider:

  • Disney Princess
  • Harry Potter
  • Fire & Ice by using white and red colours
  • Smurfs
  • Hello Kitty
  • Lion King
  • Themes with Basic Colours

Party without a theme: Woohoo! I can put on any dresses in any colours.

Parties without a theme are also fun. Best part of it is being able to pick any kinds of balloons, papers, gifts and cakes.

You do not have to select a certain colour tone or a theme. Also, you might use same decorations in upcoming years.

4- Birthday Clothes: Mummy, could you get me a birthday hat?

This is their special day, therefore you should support your kid, and there is no other way.

First, make a budget for your birthday party ideas for kids, then offer them some options within your budget.

Make them feel like they are the decision makers, but in reality, you are the one holding the cards by offering limited options.

If it is a theme party, you may provide appropriate accessories for your kids clothes. Girls and boys have different accessories (belt, hairband, hairclip etc.).

Visit the mall with your kid and explore the options together.

5- Birthday Cake: May I get one more slice, please?

Here we go, you can definitely keep this one as a secret or a surprise. Kids do not care about the size of the cake, but they sure care about the look of it, they get extremely excited. So, order a cake which is big enough for your guests.

You probably know your kid’s favourite princess or superhero. Either it is Spider Man, Cinderella, Elsa or someone else, make sure their favourite character is on the cake.

Do not go for gourmet selections such as bitter or dark chocolate. Kids usually prefer vanilla, milk chocolate or strawberry cakes.

Birthday Cake Ideas for Girls:

  • Palace
  • Minnie Mouse
  • Barbie
  • Butterfly
  • Turtle
  • Mermaid

Birthday Cake Ideas for Boys:

  • Truck
  • Shark
  • Lion
  • Train
  • Sports
  • Pirate Ship

6- Fun: You know what, there was a clown at my birthday party

Finding an entertainer as part of your birthday party ideas for kids is similar to finding a babysitter. You will be very busy while greeting the guests and keeping the party going, and you will not be able to pay attention to everyone.

This is where a funny clown or someone similar comes in and entertains the kids.

You cannot just find a stranger online and call him over, it wouldn’t be safe neither for your kids nor others.

Although it might cost more, you may hire an actor, an actress or an artist. This person could be anyone below:

  • Magician
  • Ventriloquist
  • Impersonator
  • Tattoo Artist (someone who uses organic dyes and provides temporary tattoo)
  • Clown
  • An actor or an actress in Batman, Donald Duck, or Elsa costumes.

7- Delicious foods: Eat whatever you want

Ask your kids help for selecting the menu. He/she will feel special to participate in such an important decision.

To do this, you also need to know other kids preferences.

Do not overdo it, select limited ingredients. Avoid wasting food, instead of preparing long list of food selection, go for a simple kid-friendly menu.

Prepare finger foods. Nobody wants to have their carpets or sofas covered with food stains.

You can prepare the foods listed below:

  • Personal pizzas
  • Cupcakes/pastries
  • Donuts
  • Chips
  • Sandwiches
  • Fruit juice instead of soda
  • Ice cream
  • Cookies
  • Fruits


8- Games and Gift Bags: Let’s Have Fun!

Design an engaging (interactive) birthday party. Give rewards instead of gifts.

Plan fun games/challenges that are not very tiring.

It can be a game of solving an animal puzzle in a limited time or placing stickers on correct fruits.

You can turn these games into fun learning activities for kids. But you should reward each kid for their efforts. If you cannot organise many games, you can give rewards for the top 3 in each game. Therefore, everyone can get a reward.

Here are some games to consider for your birthday party ideas:

  • Homemade bowling
  • Treasure hunt – treasure can be the gifts
  • Popping balloons
  • Musical chairs
  • Puzzles
  • Origami (teach them how to make a swan or a hat from paper, best one gets the reward)

Gifts should be entertaining for kids.

Here are some presents to consider for your birthday party ideas:

  • Crayons
  • Pencil box filled with chocolate and pencils
  • Glitter pens
  • Personal journal
  • Picture books
