If you’re more interested in doing it yourself, here are just a couple of our favorite cool party ideas that will work for a variety of ages and are sure to be a hit at children’s birthday events:
- Caterpillar Invitations: Nothing tops cool birthday party ideas like these universal favorites –caterpillars. Accordion-fold green cardstock paper lengthwise into thirds. Leaving the folded edges intact, use scissors to round the unfolded edges into a circle shape. Unfold to view your caterpillar shape. Using wiggle eyes and markers, create a face on the top fold. Unfold the caterpillar and write the party particulars across his body. Use black pipe cleaners to add antennae and legs. Decorate with colorful polka-dot stickers.
- Ladybug Invitations: Among the most popular of unique birthday party ideas are ladybug invitations. Cut oval shapes out of red cardstock (you will need 2 ovals for each invitation). Using the red ovals as a template, cut head shapes out of black cardstock. They should be rounded at the top, and straight across at the bottom, cut to fit perfectly over top of the red oval. Glue the head shapes onto one sheet of each set of red ovals. Put each pair of ovals into a stack, and use a hole punch to put two holes in the head areas. Insert a pipe cleaner in each hole, and twist to resemble antennae. Trim, if necessary. Use remaining black cardstock to create polka dots for the backs of the ladybugs. Use a black sharpie to draw a line down the center of each bugs back to separate the wings. Open the invitation to the second red oval and print all of the party info.
- Bugs, Bugs, Everywhere! Make colorful bug shapes out of cardstock, and place them all over your party area! Bright yellows, oranges and reds will look terrific amid all of the greenery! Butterflies, bumblebees and dragonflies can be strung from the streamers to look like they’re flying about. Ladybugs, grasshoppers, and caterpillars can be adhered to the streamers, windowsills and walls to look like they’re merrily crawling along.
- Buggy Balloons: Bundle some balloons in groups of two or three at eye level and decorate them with bug stickers. Remember to tie a few to your mail box to mark your party location!
