Birthday Party Theme for Little Girls
When your little one was a baby, the birthday parties were mostly about
the adults in his/her family. You all gathered and marveled that little
Becca has just turned one year old! Your baby did not really care what
was inside the brightly colored packages she was suddenly being handed.
She just loved the attention and the pretty paper! Hand her a bow and
she experiences a successful party!
But it does not take long for your daughter to have some thoughts and
preferences of her own. Some four and five year olds already have a
favorite TV show or movie they love. Others are obvious outdoor
explorers or love to do art projects.
This is the time to plan the birthday party theme around your
child’s interests, not just what happens to be on the store
shelves that season.
Most little girls, even the tomboys, love to play “Mommy and
Baby”. Why not plan a Little Mommy Party?
Little girls love to pretend and this party will be especially
remembered. Each guest will feel honored that the grownups around her
appreciate and enjoy her imagination. Pretending to be a mother is a
wonderful education for children. They have a natural tendency to
nurture children younger than themselves and it is a good thing to
- On your party invitations
ask the guests to come dressed like a mommy and to bring their favorite
- Set up a special spot for
the dolls, like a decorated playpen or brightly colored blanket spread
out on the floor.
- Once everyone has arrived,
have the guests hold their baby dolls and talk about them a bit, tell
their name and what makes them special.
- The Games could easily be
themed around babies. Instead of “Duck, Duck,
Goose!” change it to “Mommy, Mommy,
Baby!” “Pin the Diaper on the
Baby” could offer some giggles. If the girls are
six or seven they could play a baby food identification game like their
Moms do at Baby Showers.
- Take specially posed photos
of each “Mommy” with her baby and send a print to
them with the Thank You Note.
- For an art project have the
guests decorate a foam picture frame that will be just the right size
for the “Baby and Me” photo you will send them. (Or
print immediately if able!)
