Kids Party fun ideas

Fun Party Ideas

If you need party ideas and tips for planning your next party or special event like a birthday party, bachelorette party, graduation, Christmas party, Halloween party, Valentines party or something as important as a bridal shower or baby shower, then you came to the right place.

Party Planning

Plan ahead because attention to detail makes all the difference. Picture the overall style of how you imagine your perfect party. Allow plenty of time to prepare for your party and make a list. Get the big things in place before concerning yourself with the smaller details, as these will develop and change many times in the course of the build-up to your party.

Party Atmosphere

Create a fun party atmosphere with colorful decorations, scents and music. Scented candles or simmering a pot of water with cinnamon and citrus fruit will fill the house with a delightful aroma. Have your favorite music playing softly in the background when guests arrive.

Creative lighting can really enhance the party atmosphere. You can replace some bulbs with colored lamps. Strobe lights can also add to the fun.

Create Party Magic

Make your party stand out from the rest.

A style tip: use the color black. Yes, use black! In particular, try black table linen with some flowers in shocking colors for your table decorations and you'll see the effect it creates.

At a party, what makes the evening is the number of different diversions or surprises! Try to vary the music, think about the different stages of the evening and build up the atmosphere

Dora the Explorer Birthday Party...Birthday party for girls


Print the ones off of the NickJr. website. Also print some coloring pages from the website and color it with your kids for decorations. Then glue them onto pieces of cardboard and hung with ribbon.

Cake and Foods

Follow a Mexican theme and served cheese quesadillas, tacos, Tostitos with nacho dip, "wraps" (tortillas with veggies, chicken), and also sandwiches are cut into stars and squares for the little kids.


Put a streamer with colors pink, orange and purple. Balloons with the same color. You can buy dora the explorer party hats, paper plate, cups, and table cover.

Goodie Bags

There are dora goodie bag treats available in the stores. Like a dora bracelet and mini dora and boots dolls.

Games and Activities:


Make maracas using empty cans filled with beans. The kids can decorate them with paint, stickers and streamers, punch the holes in the tops and bottoms and insert wooden dowels for the handles.


Play, "What's in Backpack?” just purchase little trinket toys and placed them inside the backpack and each child had to guess what they were feeling, then got to keep their prize.

Treasure Hunt

Then make a treasure hunt with a map color it free hand. Make some Green streamers hanging from a pole between 2 trees as a jungle, a wooden plank over a tarp as the icky sticky swamp and finally the sandbox as Treasure Island. Inside the sandbox were backpacks that you can make using plain purple treat bags, with fun foam cutouts to look like backpack's face filled with things like whistles, compasses, magnifying glasses, necklaces and gold coins. These were the kids' treat bags. The kids ranged in age from 2 to 10 and everyone will have a great time.

Baby shower party ideas , fun games

What's In A Name Party


This needs to be done in advance. Write down all your guests' names. Look up the meaning in a baby name book. (Some names are derived from another name, use that meaning.) I n one column list their names, and in another column list all the different meanings. Your guests have to guess whose name matches what meaning. (If a guest has an unusual name not found, list a corky character trait that person has. i.e. - Jazzton = likes to belch and fart on command.) Or you can use a funny physical description (i.e. - she walks around the office with a pen on each ear!) or character traits, instead of looking up the meaning. Make sure the descriptions aren't too harsh or embarrassing. You can get suggestions from other guests.


The Perfect Baby

Ask the guests the following questions – “According to the mother-to-be, her perfect baby would have …” For example, pretend the mother's name is “Jane” and the father's name is “John”.

So one question would be:

Who's eyes would the mother to be like the baby have: Jane's or John's.” The person who guesses the mother's-to-be most perfect baby, the one with the most correct guesses wins.

Some other games

How Many Jelly Beans?

Fill a baby bottle with little jelly beans (or other small candy, try to find baby themed candy at candy stores). Show the baby shower ideas participants the baby bottle and have them guess how many beans or candy are in the baby bottle. How about picking the mom's favorite candy to use for the baby shower ideas? Or use baby pins instead of candy in the guessing game for the baby shower ideas for a low calorie version!

Grab The Pins

Another baby shower ideas relay using clothes pins and milk bottles. Choose two baby shower ideas participants to hold a long cord outstretched. The cord should already be set up with numerous clothes pins attached, thus resembling a clothes line. Each baby shower ideas participant uses one hand to remove as many clothes pins off the line as possible. The catch is that she can not transfer any pins to her other hand. She must use the same hand to hold and grab. As soon as she drops one, she’s out of this baby shower game.

Dirty Diapers

Fold white napkins or cloths into little diapers and fasten each with a small diaper pin. Place an unwrapped Hershey's chocolate kiss inside one of the napkins. Hand the "diapers" out to the baby shower ideas participants. Whoever lands the dirty diaper wins the "poopie" prize - a queen-size bag of chocolate kisses. (Warning: winner may lose appetite for chocolate kisses.) Here’s another less tasteful version of the baby shower ideas diaper game. Before the baby shower, take some disposable diapers and number them on the outside. Then, spread the inside of each with various food items having distinctive smells (i.e. tuna, horseradish, Italian dressing, garlic, mustard) Close each diaper up. When you’re ready to play baby shower ideas, pass out paper and pens to the baby shower guests and then quickly grab your camera for hilarious photo ops. Pass each diaper around for the players to smell, trying to identify the odors. The one with the most correct guesses wins!

Baby Ballons

Grandma may not be up for this baby shower ideas, but hopefully there are a few zippy gals at your baby shower who are willing to go for it! Place two laundry baskets across the room from each other, one filled with about 10 party balloons. Divide the baby shower ideas participants into two teams and watch the hysterics as your guests waddle across the room, clutching a balloon between their knees. The object of this baby shower ideas is to land the balloon in the other laundry basket without using hands. (Shaking, wiggling and hopping over the basket to free the balloon are all encouraged.) After the baby shower ideas participant gets her balloon in the basket, she runs back to her team so the next team member can begin. Up to two teams can go at the same time using four baskets. Whichever baby shower ideas team gets the most balloons in the basket within a certain time frame wins. Make sure to give mom-to-be an honorary turn.
