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.
Birthday Child’s Starring Role
Decorate your home with pumpkins and plush mice to represent Cinderella’s magical carriage and her faithful mice friends. Then use Disney Cinderella Giant Peel and Stick Wall Decals around the room; the partygoers will be waltzing in no time with that “fairytale feeling.”
Party Fun & Games
Have the main activity of the day be a magnificent reenactment of the famous fairy tale Cinderella. Each guest represents a character, with your child having first choice, of course. Guide the children through the fairytale story and have them end their story in a magnificent banquet hall, filled with delectable party treats and birthday cake.
Recruit an entertainer of all trades for this gathering. We suggest someone who sings, dances and is an energetic storyteller.
Select music that will complement your actors. We suggest the Cinderella soundtrack and a variety of waltz music.
For the grand finale, set the partygoers out on a hunt for the glass slipper. When found, have everyone climb into an imaginary (or real, if you can manage it) pumpkin carriage. Set off for a cake and ice cream celebration, or why not both with these adorable Ice Cream Cake Pops?
Birthday Presents & Favors
Wrap your chairs in a colorful tulle fabric bow to make the guests feel like they are in a real banquet hall. Use glass slippers filled with candy around the table to create a magical look.
