Planning the perfect character-themed party for your little one doesn’t have to be as hard as you think. With a few tips and tricks, you should be on your way to throwing the best kids’ party on the block. Don’t worry, no need to put on your kid’s favorite movie or show; I’m sure it’s burned into your memory after seeing it a million times.

1. Theme

So, thanks to your kids, you don’t have to do much work when it comes to choosing a theme for this one. Take what you know and get creative! Even if the character of choice isn’t popular in stores you can use the significant features of the character to define your theme.

*Pro Tip: Kids’ interests change often, so it wouldn’t hurt to do a doublecheck on their current favs!

2. Invitations & Decorations

Now that you have a theme, you can start gathering all the essentials. Try writing your invitations in the voice of the character or making a special prop from the movie/show to welcome parents and friends to the party. You can use colors, settings, and props to bring the world of the character to life.

3. Food & Drinks

This is where it gets really fun! If the character always has a certain food or drink try recreating it for the party. Just go for it, but know you can always check for DIY videos. Your guests will be fed and the kids will love the experience!

4. Entertainment

If your child loves a popular character you might have a good chance of finding one for hire. If not, you could dress up yourself or have the kids dress up as characters; they will love it! Also, be prepared to have a few interactive games or maybe even a singalong (if you can bear it) to give the kids something fun to do and keep the experience going.
