If you have a child who is less than six years of age and you are planning their birthday party and would like it to be extra wonderful and memorable, what better way for you to celebrate their special day than with a birthday party theme? Themed children’s parties are all the rage, after all, and they have been the rage for some time. But if you have been trying to think of a theme apart from the usual superhero theme or the ubiquitous little princess theme and would like something a bit more fantastic, here’s your essential guide to choosing the best theme for your child’s birthday party.
- The space party
What child isn’t fascinated by outer space? For something literally ‘out of this world’ you can go for a space-themed children’s party complete with moon and star decorations, hats made from tinfoil and decorated with different shapes, and even cupcakes with silver sprinkles and so forth.
- The Lego party
If your child loves Lego (and you do too), then it may be the perfect opportunity to play up your Lego fantasies with a complete Lego party. You can begin with a great Lego-inspired invitation with cardboard cut outs of Lego men, and you can even make cute Lego banners with the combination red, blue, and yellow classic Lego colours. One brilliant activity for a special Lego party is to have the children decorate their own Lego biscuits as well; simply bake some biscuits and cut each piece into a rectangle, and then present the children with sprinkles and icing so they can decorate their own Lego biscuit. You can also throw in some Lego-themed games such as letting the children guess how many Lego pieces are in a particular jar (the bigger the jar, the more fun), or simply let the children play with bins and bins of Lego so they can create whatever Lego shape or figure they want.
- The pirate party
Let everyone come out in their very own ‘Ahoy, matey!’ costume by planning a special pirate party. Pirate parties have become especially popular with the Pirates of the Caribbean films, and you can have guests come in the pirate costume of their choice. You can augment the pirate theme with a special cake made especially for the birthday boy (or girl) and have all the children participate in some unique pirate games such as a scavenger hunt or a ‘find the treasure’ hunt – the possibilities are endless.
- The art children’s party
For something even more original, you can go for the art children’s party. What is it, you may ask? Well, it’s a party where you can encourage the artistic side of your child and his or her guests. With the art children’s party, you can have the children play games with edible paint and give each child their own ‘canvas’ to paint and colour on, and you can also play games like ‘Charades’ where the children can draw characters on whiteboards tacked on the wall for everyone else to guess. You can go all out and get creative at an art children’s party, and to make it more unique, have the children bake biscuits or macaroons using molds such as the popular alphabet mold from MoldyFun, and let them decorate it with different coloured sprinkles, candy, icing or frosting, and more.
