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

Make sure to have all the phone numbers of the guests’ parents.
Fairy Tale/ Princess Party
Birthday Child’s Starring Role
On the morning of the celebration, rouse your sleeping beauty in a truly royal fashion, by bringing her breakfast in bed and crowning her Princess for the Day.
Transform your home into a Princess Palace. Roll out the red carpet leading up to your front door and create a princess crest marking the entrance to the party castle. Inside, drape a chair with red velvet and let the birthday child greet her guests.
Use a wall stick-on of a castle to give the suggestive feel of being near an enchanted castle also.
Party Fun & Games
As your royal guests arrive, escort them to the Crown Jewelers to design their own princess necklaces. Set up several bowls on a table filled with all varieties of candies that have holes in their centers such as lifesavers, gummy rings. Give each guest her very own princess tiara.
Arrange for Cinderella’s fairy godmother to make a special guest appearance or hire a Castle Bounce company to deliver and set up a giant blown up castle in which the children can jump in.
Light, classical pieces will fit the mood of these festivities. Or, play the soundtrack to your child’s favorite Princess film.
Set up a revolving, reflecting ball and have a Twelve Dancing Princesses Disco where your guests can boogie down to the soundtracks from your favorite princess movies.
Birthday Presents & Favors
Personalized, hand held mirrors mark each princess’ place at the birthday table and all royalty should certainly wear home their tiaras. Also personalize your table with food labels and use these carriage boxes as favors.
While every guest gets to wear a princess tiara, the birthday child should wear a full-fledged crown or attireon her special day. Boys can certainly join the fun with the proper royal scepter, and princely cape.
