Ideas for Kids Parties

Superhero Showdown

Calling all superheroes! Be it Spiderman, Wonder Woman or Batman superheroes never go out of fashion, making this a great theme for kids parties

Design fun and exciting invitations that feature superhero-themed elements like masks, capes, or comic book exclamations.

Encourage the kids to dress up as their favourite superheroes. Not only does this add to the fun, but it also creates fantastic photo opportunities for both the kids and their parents.

Create a ‘Superhero Training Bootcamp’  where you set up obstacle courses for them to navigate. You could also have a cape and mask decorating station. f you buy plain capes or masks online they can jazz them up with fabric markers or coloured stick on felt shapes.

You could also hire a superhero entertainer to come or organise a game like “Pin the Emblem on the Superhero” 

Get creative with the snacks by giving them superhero-themed names. For example, you could have “power punch” for drinks, “super sandwiches” for food.

Pirate Adventure

Arrr, me hearties! Are you ready to set sail on a pirate adventure? 

Transform the room into a pirate’s paradise with skull and crossbones flags, treasure chests, and nautical trinkets. You can even create a DIY pirate ship using cardboard boxes for a captivating centrepiece.

Encourage everyone to dress in their best pirate gear. Eye patches, bandanas, and gold hoop earrings will have them feeling like true seafaring rogues.  Set up a “dress-up station” with extra pirate attire for anyone who may have forgotten their garb.

X marks the spot! No pirate party would be complete without a treasure hunt! Create a map leading to hidden “buried treasure” (such as gold chocolate coins or small trinkets) and let the little adventurers follow the clues to discover the plunder. 

Send your young buccaneers off with a parting gift to remember the adventure. You could give out small bags of gold chocolate coins, temporary tattoos, or miniature telescopes as souvenirs of their pirate escapade.

Disco Fever

If you are throwing a party for a dancing queen in the making, a disco party is groovy choice. If you don’t have enough space in your house for a dance floor you can hire a local community centre.

No disco party is complete without the right music. Curate a playlist with upbeat songs that kids will love to dance to. Kidz Pop on Spotify is great. Think about popular tracks and throw in some classic disco hits to add to the vibe. You can also run games like musical statues and musical chairs.

When it comes to decorations, think sparkles, bright colours, and disco balls. Set the mood with colourful streamers, balloons, and banners. Consider adding a dance floor area with a sparkly backdrop where the kids can show off their moves. Of course, you can’t forget the speakers and disco lights.

Send the kids home with a little something to remember the party by. Consider disco-themed party favours such as glow sticks, mini disco balls, temporary tattoos, or personalized keychains.
