Children at this age relate well to other children and are very enthusiastic. They understand the idea of a birthday party, and can anticipate it months in advance. They tend to latch on to their closest friends so make sure to invite them. Kids at this age also tend to like helping with the planning so give them the opportunity to help throw their favorite birthday party.
Many children at this age are in school or pre-school so your guest list can be made up of your child’s schoolmates. Although many children are in school and used to being away from their parents, some children may need to be accompanied by an adult.
Length of party
1-1 1/2 hours
Entertainment for age
This age group has short attention spans, so the entertainment program for the party should consist of a few different activities- around five. A mixture of hands-on and learning is always a great combo. Children at this age can participate in the Bake-a-Cake party, our best selling party.
Shoe Mix Up
Safety for age
Make sure the party area is childproof and have a couple of adults on hand to help keep children together and the party organized.
Tangled/ Rapunzel Party
Birthday Child’s Starring Role
If your child likes Tangled this much to do a birthday party theme around it then she probably would like to dress up as Rapunzel. Let her wear the costume if she so chooses and crown her princess for the day.
Ideally, if you could take your party outside, it would be more appropriate for movie purposes, but an indoor area will work just a well.
Hang paper lanterns up high so that they can be the floating lights.
Use a few rolls of yellow yarn to make Rapunzel’s long hair and have it hanging around the party area (from trees and bushes or from ceilings and banisters).
If you are indoors you can use theseDisney Tangled Removable Wall Decorations.
If your party is outdoors then use thisDisney Tangled Standup.
A Rapunzel Costumed Character would be ideal for this party. They could tell the children the Tangled Story, play games with them and lead all the fun craft activities. Little ones will truly be mesmerized by being in the presence of a Princess.
Party Fun & Games
Invite your guests to come dressed up if they like as the princess of their choice. Have Rapunzel Wigs braided and ready to hand out to each child when they arrive. Have a hair dressing station at your party with ribbons, flowers and other jewels so the guests can embellish their long braids just like Rapunzel does in the movie.
Set up a Floating Lights craft table where kids can decorate their own paper lanterns. Provide paints or markers and an assortment of stickers. When the kids are finished, hand the lanterns up or save them so that they can take it home.
Play smack the Frying pan on Flynn. Download this wanted poster of Flynn and enlarge it so Flynn’s face looks life size. Cut out little pieces of card stock in the shape of frying pans and place some sticky tape on the back. Play the game as if you were playing Pin the Tail on the Donkey, blindfold the children, spin them around three times, and see who gets their frying pan the closest to Flynn’s face!
You can also use this poster as a coloring activity.
Set up a beautiful banquet table with the themed paper goods above and let each child have their own Activity mat to keep them entertained before the food arrives.
Serve braided bread sticks, tangled spaghetti, maybe a braided pizza loaf even. Stack cupcakes up high with a wooden skewer through the center and an inverted sugar cone on top to resemble Rapunzel’s tower.
These cute Tangled themed cookies are a great addition to your menu and the kids will love eating them too!
To tame Rapunzel’s hair we need a brush, so why not send off all your little guests with a hair brush of their own. Buy a few hairbrushes at a local store and adorn them with a few Rhine stones and jewels. Your guests will love going home with them and singing while they brush their hair every night.
