This is an easy party to do, especially for young children. Dress up as a clown, or gather other willing parents to dress up as different clowns to give a larger performance. You can even use some of your pets as circus animals. Tie brightly colored balloons around the room, and attach streamers and bright ribbons to the ceiling to give an illusion of a curtain or a circus tent. Serve popcorn and peanut candy as treats at the party. Fondant circles in bright colors can be used on the cake, or you can add Fondarific animals.
Almost every girl loves to get her nails and hair done, so why not have a spa party? This is perfect for children who are too old for the overly-themed parties and too young to have larger parties. Set up a table with various fingernail polishes and hair accessories, and chairs around the room. Drape soft towels on the chairs and have different stations around the room for makeup, hair styling and nails. Begin with letting the girls soak their feet in small tubs of water, and then rotate to the different stations. Each girl can bring her own supplies if she wants to use a specific color for her nails. Treat bags can include makeover treats like fingernail polish and nail stickers.
If your kid loves digging in the dirt and massive dinosaurs this theme could be perfect for you. One way to make this birthday party spectacular is to hide plastic bones in a small area of the back yard, and let the children in attendance dig them up. You can let them dust off the bones to see if they can tell what dinosaur they might belong to. Make small dinosaur egg cakes or cookie bones for a sweet treat, and send the children home with a bag full of related goodies.
A fun night of ghost stories, movies and staying up late never gets old. Invite a group of friends over for a birthday night of memories. Watch movies, make a snack buffet and play games all night. Don’t invite more people than you have room for. Make sure parents know when to pick their child up the next day.
