Top Ten Kids Birthday Party Themes

Kids Birthday Party Themes

There are hundreds of possible kids birthday party themes to choose. This can be daunting when planning your child's party, but it doesn't have to be. Just follow these simple tips and you will be well on your way to choosing the perfect party theme!

Always pick a theme

  1. This is the most important rule when planning a kid’s party, PICK A THEME. A kids birthday party theme serves as the blueprint to your party and makes all the other planning decisions easier. A party theme gives you a direction and makes the party cohesive.

Listen to your child

  1. Regardless of how young your child is they are still able to communicate their likes and dislikes.
  2. Whether you have a 1 year old who smiles at what he enjoys, a chattering 5 year old who goes on and on about what he likes or a demanding 10 year old who tells you emphatically what he wants they all get their point across in their own way.

Incorporate your kids birthday party theme in a unique way

  1. Of course party theme supplies based around your theme is a great advantage when decorating for a kids party. 
  2. Take advantage of all the supplies such as the plates, tablecloths and banners/
  3. Add a few unique elements of your own too.  You can do this through the decorations or the food.  For example, serve dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets at a Jurassic Park party.  Or name your food in a fun way for example, call curly fries worms at a Halloween Party.

Incorporate your kids birthday party theme into activities

  1. Base a couple of games around your theme. For example, have a safari hunt if you're throwing a Safari Party (same as a treasure hunt but called a safari hunt).
