Planning a party for your little one?
Birthday parties are a great opportunity to express your creativity and to provide
a one-of-a-kind party around your child's favorite theme. Plus, you can save money by
crafting banners, goodie bags, invitations, party activities, gifts and more.
One of our favorite magazines, Family Fun has a great listing of party themes on their website
as well as spectacular cake ideas. Also, check out Plaid's gallery of party craft ideas.
Here are some of our favorite themes:
- Safari Party -Use animal stencils and stamps to create your own jungle, safari or rainforest party.
Let kids create animal masks from paper plates for a fun party activity.
- Blast Off!- Create a space-themed party using boxes to make life-sized space ships
and smaller discarded household containers for rocket ship table settings.
- Runway- Great for your favorite girly-girl. Use fun motifs like spotlights, sunglasses, cell phones
and handbags for invitations; Create your own runway and let the girls play dress up!
- Summer Fun- Cute stamps featuring shells and sea themes make great designs for table decorations.
Use small pails for treats instead of goody bags.
