Children can be quite fussy when it comes to birthday parties, and often they have a very particular set of ideas covering things that they want and things that they don’t want. Between the ages of 5 and 10, children go to a huge number of parties and it can sometimes feel as if there is one every single week, so coming up with original ideas can seem difficult. If you are struggling to come up with a good theme for your child’s party, here are a few ideas for you.
Rock Star Party
Just about every child loves music and they also love dressing up. So how about combining the too and having a fancy dress rock star party. There are lots of affordable rock star outfits available online for both boys and girls, so there will be no shortage of ideas for outfits. Just some of the cool rocks stars that kids might like to dress up as include David Bowie, Slash from Guns n Roses, Jimi Hendrix, Prince, Lady Gaga, Madonna and Beyonce.
Toy Story Themed Party
All kids love the Toy Story films and with so many great characters to choose from, a Toy Story themes fancy dress party is sure to be a great success. The main characters Woody and Buzz Lightyear will be obvious favourites amongst the children, but there are also a lot of other ones to choose from as well. If you really want to push the boat out, you could hire a children’s entertainer to dress op as one of the main characters and act out scenes from the films.
This idea is more suited to a girls party, as they are particularly keen on Frozen. All young girls love dressing up as princesses, and a Frozen themed party would give them the ideal opportunity to do it. Get them to sing along with the songs and they will be in their element.
Despicable Me Party
Another hugely popular kids film is Despicable Me. You can get hold of Minion outfits online for a very affordable price and if you throw in a few kids party games as well, it is certain to give them a day to remember.
If you want a more broad choice of outfits for the kids to choose from, a good idea would be to set the theme as Disney. This gives other parents a huge choice of outfits to select from and part of the fun will be guessing what each child has come as.
