Children's Birthday Party Themes

disney fairy set

There are so many childrens birthday party themes to choose from that you could go crazy trying to decide on a theme. One of the easiest ways to pick birthday party themes for kids is to ask your child (although I suspect you probably already know) what they like. Once you have picked a theme you can incorporate activities and games that go with your party theme. For example, a Tinkerbell party could include Tinkerbell bingo, or have a Disney Fairies (bought or homemade) treasure hunt in your backyard, or pin the wings on the fairy.

For a Dinosaur party theme you could make Dinosaur eggs (see recipe) and have a scavenger hunt or bury some plastic dinosaurs (make sure you have enough for every guest) in a pail filled with sand or on a mound of wet sand and let them have a Dino Dig by taking turns digging for them with a stick or spoon. Or buy a bag of sand, wet it and shape it into a mountain, put some branches and leaves and let the guests play pretend Jurassic Park. And remember there are many activities, games and crafts that you can make (like the Dinosaur eggs) on your own which will help you stay within your budget. I could go on and on, but I’ll stop so you can get to the list.


Below is a complete list of children’s birthday party themes by age group to help you find some creative party theme ideas. There are many children’s birthday party themes to choose from, all with wonderful and creative possibilities. Once you have picked your theme you can start building around it by taking the colors of your party theme and using them to decorate and make your party favors.

Many of the characters come in "baby" style and regular. Here's an example of Minnie Mouse:
