If your child has a Spring birthday, why not grab the spirit of Spring and incorporate it into your child’s birthday celebration? Here are 6 fun ideas for a Spring birthday party.
The setting can be in your backyard or local park. You can use invites and decorations with flowers and butterflies on them. Serve flower cookies, a butterfly shaped birthday cake and bug juice. Have the kids go on a scavenger hunt and count how many flowers, butterflies and ladybugs they can find.
Make some barn door invitations. Play Pin the Tail on the Donkey (or Horse), animal charades or do some apple bobbing. Create some stick horses using brooms and have the kids race each other. Make sheep cupcakes using mini marshmallows.
Ask your guests to dress up and bring their dolls or teddy bears. Decorate with pastel-colored balloons, ribbons and tulle. Look for mismatched tea cups and saucers at second-hand stores. Serve assorted finger sandwiches, tartlets, scones, mini cupcakes and, of course, tea. Try different flavored teas like fruit teas and have honey on the side. You can also serve iced tea.
Pitch a couple of tents in your backyard. If you have camping equipment, your party’s good to go. If you don’t, try qa discount store or borrow from family and friends. Let the kids roast some hot dogs and s’mores, and if the kids are old enough, tell some scary stories.
Warm up to your kid’s big day with baseball ticket invitations. Create or purchase baseball themed decorations or your child’s favorite team’s colors. Serve baseball party food: pizza, hot dogs, nachos and popcorn. For dessert, make a baseball cake, cupcakes or baseball cake pops. Play a game or any variation, have a trivia game or play baseball bingo.
Make the invitations look like the tickets you will be handing out at the carnival. Make booths out of refrigerator boxes with large signs for each carnival game. Play games like: Ring Toss, Tin Can Knock Down, Bean Bag Toss and Guess How Many Jelly Beans. Set up a fun photo booth with props.
