Save The World Party Theme

In this save the world party theme, the kids become heroes as they battle to save our planet and at the same time they learn about the environment, nature and how to value it. And all in a FUN way!

Make sure you plan this birthday party theme with your child and that s/he understands what is going on and wants to do it. Explain how this is an exciting party about s/he and her friends will be doing something together that is really valuable.

You could either stick to one aspect for your Save the World party theme such as nature, planets, animals, pollution etc or you could do the whole shebang. But choose something that will grab the attention of the kids.

Save The World Party Invitations

Earth to X (child's name)
Your planet is being destroyed and X (host's name) needs you to help him/her save it
Together we will save the world and have a planet-astic time
Please bring one recyclable item as your ticket

  • Postcard Invites
    Write the Save the World party theme details on postcards with pictures of nature, countries or planets. 
  • Recyclable Invites
    Make invitation cards out of cardboard food packaging boxes. Cereal boxes are ideal for this. Cut out pictures from used Christmas and birthday cards or even magazines and use them to decorate the printed side of the cards. Write the Save the World party theme details on the plain side of the invite.
  • Nature Invites
    Make or buy some recycled paper and write party details on it. Jazz up the invites up with dried leaves and flowers.

If guests want to bring a birthday gift, suggest that gifts are small or that the kids instead donate to an environmental cause. For kids that live nearby encourage them to come as a group either on foot or on bikes, scooters etc You may well need another adult to help up with this.

Save The World Party Costumes

Get the kids to come dressed as scientists, explorers or naturalists. Think of binoculars, pith helmets, khaki clothes, lab coats.

For those who don't have a costume have a couple of old men's white shirts to hand so they can look like natural scientists. Alternatively these Straw Pith Hats are also a great cheap way of getting the kids to look the part.

Save The World Party Decorations

  • Make as many of the Save the World party theme decorations as you can out of recyclable material – paper, cardboard, boxes, tin cans etc
  • For a color theme you could either go green or use all the colors of the rainbow or all the bright colors of nature.
  • Make a centerpiece of a large inflatable globe which you can suspend from the ceiling.
  • Decorate the party room with posters of the earth, the stars, nature or the environment
  • Hang stars around the room and make a large wall frieze showing the different planets. (Don't label the planets yet as the frieze can be used in a game later).
  • Use old maps as table coverings and old CD's as drink mats. Dot dried flowers and leaves in between the food dishes.
  • String up some solar powered outdoor lights and just hope the sun shines.
    Top Tip: Make sure you put them up a few days in advance in order for the solar batteries to have time to charge

Save The World Party Activities

  • Tiny Terrarium
    Give each child a clear soda pop bottle of which you have cut of the top half. Let them layer small rocks, sand and earth in the bottom to resemble the earth's layers. Then top with real plant seeds or small paper flowers.
  • Sand Flowers
    Draw a large flower on craft paper. Make it large enought so that each child has a petal to decorate. Cover individual parts of the flower with glue. Whilst the glue is still wet, sprinkle on colored sand bought from craft stores. You can also make your own colored sand by mixing fine sand with crushed up colored chalk.
  • Grass Head
    Make you own Grass Head Craft. This is a really fun activity which the kids can take home with them.
  • Tin Can Treasures
    Give each child an empty, clean food can of which you have removed the original paper lable. Have lots of stickers and glue on items and let the kids decorate them. They can then take them home afterwards to use as pen pots or for whatever they wish.
  • S&S WORLDWIDE also have some great craft kits which would be perfect for your Save the World party theme. And they sell in bulk so you can make some good savings.

Save The World Party Food

Serve as much of the Save the World party theme food as you can that is directly from nature and that means vegetables and fruit. Make the food look fun and interesting so even picky eaters will be tempted.

Serve the food in containers made from natural or recyclable materials such as a wooden salad bowl, scooped out water melon, grapefruit or coconut shells or wicker baskets lined with brown recyclable paper. Avoid disposable plates and cutlery unless you are recycling already used containers. Fun food ideas might be:

  • Veggie Platter
    Raw carrots, cucumber, carrot wheels, cauliflower florets, cherry tomatoes. Provide a mayonnaise dip.
  • Fruit Kebabs
    Thread fresh fruit pieces on a stick. Drizzle with melted organic chocolate.
  • Yogurt Bonanza
    Yogurt topped with nuts (be aware of allergies), and dried or fresh fruit
  • Planet Shakes
    Forget sugary fizzy drinks and make a milk shake using their favorite fruits.
  • Fresh Fruit Cocktails
    Mix fresh fruit juices to make a fruity thirst quenching cocktail.
  • Popcorn Stars
    Make caramel or butter covered popcorn. Pile the popcorn in a big bowl or if you have the energy, thread pieces together on a sting necklace.
  • Flower Power Cookies
    Buy or make plain cookies and cover with frosting. Add sugar past flowers or design your own with sprinkles
  • House of Straw
    Cheese straws piled high and made with whole meal flour
  • Litter bugs
    Fruit gum insects
  • Earth Cake
    Prepare a basic chocolate cake using a packet cake mix or my all-in-one cake recipe. Use a pudding mold to give the cake a roundish shape. Decorate the cake centered around your main Save the world theme (nature, world etc). It could be covered in sugar or real edible flowers or maybe frosted to resemble the earth or moon. How about covered in brown frosting to resemble the soil and with little gummy creatures stuck all around.
