Children in this age group are comfortable with rules, taking turns, and playing games, so Physical Activity parties such as a Bowling Party, Martial Arts Party, Gymnastics Party are perfect for this age. They are also developing coordination skills and will be excited to put them to use in games geared towards these skills.
Invite schoolmates and friends. Just remember that some children at this age prefer to only have children of their own sex at their parties so don’t be alarmed if this is the case.
Length of party
1 1/2 - 2 hours
Entertainment for age
At this age, entertainment that involves hands-on activities such as baking/decorating cakes, sand art, or painting are great. Kids feel a sense of accomplishment, especially when they are at a phase in life where they begin to develop and perfect specific individual skills.
Safety for age
Make sure to have all the phone numbers of the guests’ parents.
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.
