Get Your Glow On
Some of the best birthday party ideas can be the simplest, like a glow-in-the-dark party. Turn your living room into a trendy dance club by merely adding a black light, your kiddo’s favorite tunes, glow sticks and a disco ball. The kids will love painting each other’s faces with glow-in-the-dark face paint. The glow sticks can be turned into necklaces, making them the perfect party souvenir.
Drive Right Up
At this drive-in movie theater birthday bash, no movie tickets or concessions are necessary. Bring out the popcorn and let the kids sit back in their cars, made from cardboard boxes and paper plates. Bring out the washable markers so guests can personalize their cars. Once settled, provide plenty of snacks and refreshments to get them through the flick. After the film, watch the kids race to enjoy the car birthday cake. If you can bake, even better!
Considering that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles live underground, an indoor birthday party is a perfect place for a TMNT-themed birthday party! From amazing decor to cookies that look like mini pizzas, this will bring out the inner ninja in all your guests. Just dress your turtley-guests for the occasion with the appropriate masks. You’ll be hearing, “Totally tubular, dude!” in no time!
Hunt for Treasure
An indoor space is the perfect location for an epic pirate treasure hunt party. Throw in a pirate ship birthday cake and pirate patch and party hat souvenirs. Be sure to get the kids searching for clues in hopes of being the first to solve the mystery. You can even make things trickier by adding games, puzzles or challenges to each clue. Happy hunting!
Surf and Sand
Get the sun to shine inside your indoor beach party. Ask guests to bring their favourite sand and water toys. Then, just lay out towels and fill a kiddie pool with toy balls as you turn up the Moana soundtrack. For extra fun, you could organize a laugh-out-loud contest with cardboard microphones! Don’t forget the hula hoops!
Get your little artists to do some painting of their own at an art-themed birthday party! Place plain cupcakes on paint palettes. Fill the reservoirs with a variety of cupcake toppers and watch them work on their masterpieces.
LEGO Birthday Party
Any LEGO party is going to need a ton of LEGO blocks! Use the blocks to build a cake stand and pass out in party bags as souvenirs. Build cool decor and set up a LEGO-building table where the kids can work on one giant creation together.
