Theme It – What’s the BIG IDEA?

Are you having trouble coming up with a theme for your child’s party? Well, that’s the problem! Unless it’s a surprise party, it shouldn’t be YOUR BIG IDEA! It should be left to the child to decide. Encourage your child to use their interests, hobbies or collections to guide them.
An example, my daughter LOVES to scrapbook. So we made a scrapbook themed party, took tons of digital photos, printed them out for the kids and they made a mini-scrapbook while they were at the party. Our goody bags were little gift bags filled with stickers, die cut shapes (I raided my own stash), gel pens and each child received a paper punch. (The latter two were found at the dollar store!)
We also learned through trial and error that the smaller the party, often the more fun it is! You can do more with less kids!

Here are some themes to get your BIG IDEAS rolling, just be sure to read them to your kids so it can be their final BIG IDEA! (there’s nothing wrong with giving them a list to choose from of say maybe 10 different themes and letting them choose one – sometimes you can even combine them)
