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.

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.
At some point or another, your little girl might become obsessed with the enchanted little fairies and want to dress up like one, act like one, and celebrate like one.
Choose an enchanting location for your party. An outdoor area, a back yard or garden work very nicely. If you are restricted to the indoors, you can easily transform your living room into an enchanted magical forest. Use pastel colored tulle fabrics to drape your living room walls. Ruffle them and attach them high on the wall to give the illusion of a tree.
Attach fairy and butterfly wings to walls or hang them from the ceiling at different heights, use this butterfly mobile to make it super easy. Use large paper flowers and poms to make your little ones feel even more fairy like.
If you don’t mind the messy clean up. Use glitter on all party decorations, especially on the food table. It will add that extra magical sparkle and the guests will love it.
Use gray construction paper or fabric to create stepping stones leading from the entrance of the party to the main party room/area.
Party Fun & Games
Your guests will want to fly around like little fairies so why not give the guests a pair of wings and a fairy wand as they arrive?
If you want to make the wands part of the party, set up a little station with wooden rods, bright colorful ribbons and fake jewels so that your fairies can personalize their wand however they like. Once they are all equipped, lead the guests through a magical scavenger hunt where they find a beautiful fairy treasure at the end.
Have each fairy decide what she would like to be a fairy of, there are many options: flower fairy, fruit fairy, light fairy, woodland fairy, and then do a mini coronation ceremony where each fairy gets their special fairy badge or flower crown.
Hire a dancer to teach your fairies how to move and dance as gracefully as enchanted fairies. Have the entertainer dress as a fairy herself and help lead the children in the scavenger hunt.
You can also hire a face painter to paint all of your fairies’ faces and make them look more magical.
Color Your Own Princess Castle during the party and have that be a gift for the birthday girl, a work of art created by all her friends!
Fairies eat very pure and natural foods so treat your little fairies to some fresh berries, granola (no nuts), yogurt, mini sandwiches, mini meringues, and mini cupcakes. Display a cupcake for each of your fairies on these sweet cupcake stands.
Add an extra sweet tooth with rock candy of different colors. They look like magical rocks but taste much better!
Hang a canopy over your food table to make it more exciting.
Relaxing and magical tunes such as spa music and water sounds are perfect for creating this magical atmosphere.
Your fairy will need some fairy dust to keep the magic going long after the party is over, pack a little favor back with this magical fairy dust.
Allow the guests to take their fairy wings and wands home as favors. They will truly love to stay in character for as long as possible!
