Fancy Dress Parties
Fancy dress parties are always fun because kids can pick their favorite character and act them out. You can choose one story (cartoon or movie) or maybe even better, a broader theme (such as Disney party), so the kids could make their choice more easily.
Think pirate party, where kids dress up as pirates, or Harry Potter parties, where you’ll have little witches, wizards and even dragons coming up for cake.
Batman, Spiderman, Wonder Woman and any hero with a cape can show up at a Superhero Party and little girls in princess costumes, tiaras, queen outfits and plenty of glitter will glide across the yard at a Princess Party.
Plan themes, decorations and fancy food based on the type of fancy dress party you’re having. For instance, a pirate party is just the place to serve jelly boats and little biscuit wands or flower fairy cupcakes will be loved by the little kids in fairy costumes.
Face painting is a fun activity at costume parties. A soldier can have his face camouflaged with green and brown paints, a soccer player can wear the colors of his favorite team or country on his face and a little girl dressed as a cat can have her face painted to look like one. You can make your own face paint at home, with cornstarch, cold cream, some cold water and food coloring.
The ideas are all there. Come up with some of your own as well. Get creative and start planning your child’s unforgettable birthday party. You’re bound to have as much fun planning it as the kids will have being a part of it on the big day!
