Children love make believe games because it gives them a sense of wonder and discovery. Thus, what more can you give an inquisitive and curious child than a themed birthday party?
Girls can have unicorn, pink and gold, fairy or disney-themed parties, while boys may find some enjoyment with dinosaurs, cars, sports or rocket parties.
When having a themed party it is nice to have your child and the guests dress up as their favorite object or character. This needs some amount of preparation but it sure is worth the effort, especially after you’ve seen how cute everyone looks on the photos.
It is important to keep in mind that if you’re planning to host a party for children, you have to make sure it holds their attentions for more than just a few minutes to be successful. So themes, games and yummy food are a must.

Water Party Ideas
You can have a Pool party or if you don’t have a pool then why not throw a Beach Themed Party,
You can do this in your backyard, if you have a pool the kids can come in their bathing suits and have a fun time splashing around.
If you don’t have a pool but want to just have your party in the yard, then a splash party or beach themed party will do the trick, you can bring out water guns and have the kids play with them during the party. Beach balls, spade and buckets are great for decorations.
Just make sure you inform your guests what kind of party you’re throwing so they can bring their suits and a change of clothes. Finger crossed the weather stays warm.
You can rent out farm animals and bring them to your yard for the kids to pet, or you can go to animal farms that hold birthday parties, some do pony rides, some have petting zoos.
This birthday party idea not only opens the kids’ eyes to different kinds of animals, but also enhances their social skills. Make sure the animals you bring in are tame and friendly, and have been given their necessary shots (just in case something happens).
Fairy or Elf Themed Parties
A gorgeous idea for little ones is to throw a fairy themed party. The young guests may be asked to come in costumes (fairies or elves) and you can have the whole venue decorated to look like pixie forest. How gorgeous would that be?
If you don’t want your guests to spend so much with costumes, you can opt to hold a themed party and not require them to come in costumes. It’s how you carry out the party that matters. But, of course, getting your guests in costumes would make your party pictures look so much better.
There are many other children’s birthday party ideas out there. The ones we’ve mentioned here only scratch the surface and are actually some of the most common. You can be unique and plan a really odd one yourself. Whatever it is, remember that it’s for your child’s enjoyment.
Food Themed For Parties
You can also tailor the food that you will serve according to the theme. You don’t really need to come up with new dishes. You can simply rename and redecorate regular party food, popcorn, cupcakes, snacks, fruit kababs, to make them look and sound according to the theme you chose.
If you have a Halloween party, for instance, you can rename spaghetti into ‘blood and guts’. (Don’t worry. Most children are not usually squeamish with names. In fact, they find it quite amusing.)

Games For Parties
Any party should have games as it keeps the children occupied. Again, like the food, you can just rename the games to fit your theme. You can also hire entertainers from outside to give your party an extra kick. For a fairy party, mascots dressed as magical trees or older fairies and elves will keep the children interested.
Nothing’s to stop the adult guests from joining in, too! Any children’s party is not just for the children, but also for the child at heart. If you have a themed party, surely the adult guests will also have a blast, not just watching the kids have fun, but also because they get the chance to relive the moment when they were still kids.
Sack races, pinatas, pin the tail of the donkey, pass the parcel, musical chairs just to name a few games.
Please enjoy the day let the kids have fun, don’t be too strict and remember to take loads and loads of photos for memories.
