When it comes time to start planning for your young child’s birthday party, you want to make sure you do things right. Your kid has been waiting all year to celebrate another year and it’s important to make things exciting and fun. There are tons of themes to choose from and it can be difficult to narrow them down. We’ll share a few that are especially interesting, and you can decide which best fits your child and their personality and interests.
Mermaid Birthday Party
While the Little Mermaid came out decades ago, mermaids have never been more in favour than today. You can easily set up some decorations like plastic shells and fish to immediately bring everyone into the feel. One great idea that can be a lot of fun is transforming rock candy into tasty coral for the kids to eat. You can also put grapes on long sticks to make something that looks like seaweed.
Lego Birthday Party
Kids of all ages and every gender enjoy playing with Legos. It’s also super easy to turn into a theme for a little one’s birthday party. You can get moulds to make chocolate toppers that look like Lego bricks for your cupcakes. Use Lego trays to hold food and have lots of the building blocks themselves for an activity. If you have older kids, you could even have a building contest.
Bowling Birthday Party
Have a kid who is a budding athlete? One of the best options is renting a party at a bowling centre. Not only will the kids have a blast, but you won’t have to plan every second of the affair. Even kids that aren’t into bowling can try out laser tag or sit and munch on bowling centre snacks. The best part is that you can bring a cake of your choosing and turn the bowling centre into the theme you want without all the hassle.
Cars Birthday Party
Everyone loves cars, especially little boys who enjoy smashing the matchbox version into each other. The party grab bags are easily made with a couple of cars and some snacks the birthday boy enjoys. Pop those tiny toy cars around the edge of the cake or as toppers on the cupcakes. If you prefer edible ones, you can use a simple mould and some chocolate. Make fun invitations shaped like race cars to get the guests excited to show up.
These are just a few of the ideas that work well for a young child’s birthday party. Remember that you can avoid the mess and some of the planning by holding your party at a bowling centre. You’ll get to enjoy the fun instead of rushing around the entire party.
