Planning Theme Parties

My children love picking themes and planning a party around that theme.

  1. Pick the theme.
    Some years, it will be obvious what theme your child wants for his or her birthday.  Two to three weeks before the birthday, start talking asking questions.  Your child may have ideas for a theme, or you may have to make some suggestions.
  2. Plan the activities.
    Brainstorm ideas around the theme.  There's no single plan to a perfect party.  Some years we have a few games and a craft, other years there's just one main activity that takes up most of the party.  It's always a good idea to have a few short games or craft in case things aren't working.
  3. Set the number of guests.
    Once your child has picked the theme and the activities, then you get to set the number of guests.  If you aren't sure, limit the number of guests to your child's age.  A four year old could invite three friends.  For sleepovers, divide that number by 2.  An ten year old's sleepover party would have 5 kids.
  4. Invitations.
    Have your child design the invitations to match the party theme.
  5. Plan the food.
    Think about the snacks and cake that would fit the theme.  Let your child come up with some suggestions.  Try to include favorite foods on the menu.
  6. Decorate.
    Often you just need to come up with a few suggestions and then let the kids take over.  Maybe have your child invite a special friend (or someone who couldn't attend the actual party) come and help with the decorating.
  7. Enjoy the party.
    Don't worry if things don't go according to plan, or some activities get skipped.  As long as your child is having fun, it will be a birthday to remember.
