It is quite symbolic to have a birthday in spring: nature awakens from long winter sleep, new life is born, it gets warmer and our mood goes up with birds singing and the sun shining. The kids are happy to spend more time outdoors and burn off energy. This time of the year gives a great opportunity to celebrate their day in the open air doing fun activities. Actually, spring party themes can be inspired by nature itself. Here there are some ideas for small birthday celebrants.
This is one of the favorite spring theme party ideas for adults and can be perfectly borrowed for kids. In case your house has a yard, you certainly have to throw a garden party. How can you upgrade this space to create a festive atmosphere? Adorn the place with string lights and arrange a picnic area with plenty of throw blankets and pillows. And be prepared to do some crafts!
What about a bug headband or a bracelet? The kids will need the following materials: green pompoms, pipe cleaners, googly eyes, and hairbands. They will also use scissors and hot-glue guns. They have to glue the eyes to the pompoms and attach them to the pipe cleaners. Afterward fix the “antennas” to the hairbands and set off to spy real bugs with magnifying glasses.
A spring birthday party is associated with something tender and sweet with flowers. In this case, a mother’s and daughter’s tea party is always a success. Ask your small and big ladies to put on their best floral prints and accessories. Go to a consignment shop and search for a vintage teapot and teacups which you can give to each of the guests as a gift.
Serve tea for adults and lemonades or juices for kids. Make sure there is no lack of finger sandwiches, pastries, and biscuits. You can also buy cheap paper hats for them as another surprise gift and decorate them together with fake flowers and ribbons. A master class on making bouquets is also one of the most appropriate spring theme party ideas for adults and kids. Maybe you all can pick up some flowers and plants from your garden to make the craft even more special.
Another option for a spring-themed party is a cooking one. Buy or sew yourself Chef’s hats and aprons for the little “ratatouilles”. They will be delighted to see their names on them.
You can opt for Italian recipes as they are usually simple but delicious. They will be delighted to cook their own pizzas! Give to each child a ball of dough and prepare a variety of toppings so that they can choose something of their liking. For dessert let them adorn cupcakes with frosting and sprinkles.
We all love yellow expressive faces – that is why this is an excellent idea for a children’s party. Offer a yellow dress-code, stick emoji decals around the festive space, prepare individual small pizzas with emoji toppings (use bell peppers and black olives), and draw faces on Mini Babybell Swiss Cheese snacks. Get yellow balloons with helium and let the kids draw emoji on them.
As rainbows are a frequent natural phenomenon in spring, it is one of the most chosen spring party themes for kids’ birthdays. You can reflect the theme in a dress code, cut and put in the shape of a rainbow bright-colored fruits and vegetables, decorate cookies with multicolored arches. As a craft activity, buy a big piece of paper and draw the outline of a rainbow on it. Cut squares of colorer paper and prepare glue sticks beforehand. Invite the kids to fill out each section of the drawing.
A rainbow ball pit can be one of the most genii and yet cheap spring birthday party ideas for a 1-year-old child. Float an ordinary baby pool and fill it out with light colorful balls – cool entertainment for hours is ready! Prepare nice paper cups with baby snacks and cute bottles with a straw with some water or yogurt as munchkins will need a lot of energy for the pool.
Spring birthday party ideas do not finish here of course. Just try to find what inspires you and your child about spring and for sure together you will kick-start some brilliant ideas!
