Choosing a theme

It’s always easier to choose a theme first, then plan a birthday party around that theme. Whether it’s pirates, mermaids, jungle animals, super heroes, or even a simple colour theme, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Give your little one some ideas, then let them chose the theme they love the most (within limits)!

Sending the invites

You can’t have a birthday party without any invites! So get your little one to choose some invitation cards which their friends can use to RSVP. That way you’ll know how many kids to plan the party for.

Organising the food

You’ll probably have 10 or so hungry kids to feed, so be prepared! You could do a buffet of sweet and savoury treats (preferably finger food that’s easy to eat), serving fizzy drinks and fruit juice to drink. And don’t forget the birthday cake and candles to blow out!

Planning the activities

You need things to keep all these little guests occupied! The best thing is to plan some activities and games in advance: hide and seek, arts and crafts (making masks, drawing, playdough, face painting, etc.), piñatas, knock-over cans… Anything to get them running around!
