Ideas and themes for a party for kids include a little princess tea party complete with dress-up gowns, tiaras and a designated table for tea time or a superhero party where guests are asked to dress as their favorite hero or cartoon character. Another idea is a puppy dog party where guests are invited to bring their puppies and dogs along to join in the fun.
Kids may also enjoy a color-themed party. For example, ask the host to pick a color, such as blue, and ask guests to dress in blue, serve blue foods, decorate the area with blue streamers and balloons and play games that are blue, such as bobbing for blueberries.
A pirate party with a treasure hunt is also a popular party idea for kids. Bury or hide gifts, toy jewelry and play money in the backyard and provide each party guest with a map and clues to find the hidden treasures. A beach-themed party with water games, beach balls, sand pits for building castles and water balloon tosses is ideal for the summer months. Another idea is to host a movie party with a private viewing of a popular film or cartoon projected in the backyard or driveway.
