Kid's themed party ideas will make it easier to plan a kid's birthday celebration because it’s all based around one subject and it feels a lot more organised.

With the thousands of possible theme parties to choose from, your child shouldn’t have any problem picking one they like.

Maybe they are into a special movie, like “Frozen” or “Planes” and would like their event to reflect their favorite characters from that movie. Or maybe they like camping or dinosaurs; you could use that as the theme and build your event around it.

I have many themed party ideas for all ages, from tots to teens to help you organise your event.

I’ve had a LOT of experience at throwing themed parties now that my kids are grown and I have a dozen grandchildren (and yes, I am a young grandma, read more here).

Let me help you plan your kid’s themed event.

My Biggest Tip: Don't worry about feeling like everything has to be perfect. Kid's love a celebration no matter how simple or how much time and money you have spent.  An event of any kind is meant to be FUN and yes, you can do it!

Holiday Theme Celebration

Easter, Christmas, July 4th, Halloween, Fiesta Parties that are great for holiday theme parties for kids.

Throw a stress free holiday theme celebration. From Easter through to Christmas, it's always great to have a celebration.

Hosting a kid's theme party can get stressful but the key to taking off some of that stress is being as organised as possible on the day of the celebration.

Preparing the food, games, and having the decorations laid out before hand will help make it a little less stressful.

If you ask any child when they leave an event what was their favorite thing about it was, most kids will say it’s a game or activity that they played.

Food and decorations aren’t on the top of kids lists when they think of a celebration. Of course, you will need to have them but I would concentrate more on a couple really good games and activities because that is what the kids will remember most.

If you have had a themed event, we would love to hear about it. Share your themed party ideas with us.
