1. Dora the Explorer - This is a very popular theme for little girls. A great theme for a birthday party would be a Spanish birthday party complete with piñata. The children could have fun with a sombrero party which is played similar to musical chairs. Placing the hats on a table in a circle the children go around the table until the music (Spanish) goes off and then grab a hat.
2. Barbie - Every little girl loves Barbie. The theme of this party could be a makeover party. The birthday girl will have loads of fun as will her friends when they get to dress up like Barbie with real make-up too. All the little girls can have makeovers. Provide tiaras for them to wear as well. Of course, there are many Barbie games that can be played such as a treasure hunt for Barbie
3. Hannah Montana - The latest in the craze of girl’s role models is Hannah Montana. This would be an excellent birthday party theme for girls around the age of 8 to 10. A karaoke machine with music from Miley Cyrus is going to be a must. A make-shift stage will make a big hit and you can give prizes to the singers. Complete this with a cake in the shape of a giant CD.
4. Tinkerbelle - When it comes to fantasy, Tinkerbelle is probably number one. When planning this party make sure to purchase wings and wands for the party girls. The birthday girl can come dressed as Tinkerbelle. A tent in the back yard fixed up like a fairy castle would be a great addition to the party. This would also allow the girls room to sprinkle fairy dust as they play. Games adapted to the fairy theme such as tag are very popular for these parties.
5. High School Musical - This type of theme for a birthday party would be for your older children such as pre-teens. You will not have to provide games as you would for younger children. The music of course should be from the movie and your decorations will want to go along with this theme. Food will be your main thing. Provide all the snacks they like such as chips and dips and finger foods. Kids this age love to snack.
1. Spongebob - This can be a fun time for your little boy. With bubbles, Spongebob stickers and all the sea creatures that live in Bikini Bottom, one great way to celebrate a birthday would be to have a pool party. Play hot potato in the water with the theme song from the show using sponges for the ’potato’. Serving crabby patties from the grill and other snacks will make this birthday special.
2. Super Mario Brothers - A great party idea for young children, the main food can be pizza and chocolate coin candy can be used for party favors. The theme music from the game can be played and a contest to see who can find the most mushrooms (you can make this yourself) will be part of the fun. A Yoshi piñata is another great idea for this birthday theme.
3. Pokemon - This can be a party that your child will remember. Either a game of Pokemon trivia can be played with Pokemon cards for the prizes or a Pokemon treasure hunt can be another idea. Kids love to be up moving around and this would be a great idea for keeping them busy. Of course you need the theme items for decorations and the cake.
4. Wall-E - A scavenger hunt allowing the kids to find their way back to Earth with every item they find on their list is a great Wall-E party idea. The game of Simon says with robot voices would be another. Find enough junk for the kids to work on their own robot. This can be loads of fun for the Wall-E party.
5. Kung Fu Panda - If you know someone who is knowledgeable in the art of Kung Fu, see if they are available to come to the party and show the kids a few moves. If not, you may be able to hire someone for an hour for a nominal fee. Be inventive and think of games that could incorporate the use of chopsticks. Have a sword fight with something non-dangerous such balloons.
