Birthday party themes for kids based on interests

This list of birthday party themes for kids by interests take the stress out of party planning for the parents of young children. Themed children’s birthday parties allow limitless fun and creativity. But it can be a little overwhelming to decide on a theme and then plan a successful party around it. Here are some tips, ideas, and sample birthday party themes for party planning.

Components of a Children’s Birthday Party

Parties are comprised of the following six elements that require attention when planning:

  1. Invitations
  2. Decorations
  3. Games and activities
  4. Refreshments and/or lunch
  5. Cake
  6. Party favors for guests


It’s best to choose a theme and then somehow incorporate it into each of these 6 elements.

Themed parties can be simple and inexpensive, or they can be elaborate and costly. Decide on a budget and how much time and effort you will ideally spend on the party ahead of time to eliminate headaches later. You can easily get most you need for a themed party at ADVENTICA, or you can do it yourself everything.

Choosing a Children’s Birthday Party Theme

Virtually anything can make a great birthday party theme if it’s done right. The best way to choose a good birthday party theme is to make a list of the birthday boy or girl’s favorite:

  • colors
  • board games
  • TV shows or movie themed party
  • animals
  • hobbies and interests
  • subjects in school
  •  heroes
  •  what child wants to be when s/he grows up

Just by making a list, some good ideas should already be coming to mind. Don’t forget to ask for input from the birthday boy or girl if they are above the age of 2 or 3.
