Ideas for a Hello Kitty themed party

Children’s birthday parties have certainly moved on from our day. The days of having simple balloons and a cake have evolved. Parties now are so much more involved. It seems the cool thing to do is to have a theme for the party. Themes for parties are ever-changing as new movies and television shows hit our screens all the time. We can be sure that the new Disney movie poster we have been staring at on billboards will soon be emblazed onto a paper plate that our children will be scoffing cake off.

A very popular theme with young girls of all ages is Hello Kitty. This is a real winner and you cannot go wrong with It. There is a whole host of merchandise for this and conveniently plenty of party themed supplies including cups, plates, banners, gifts and printed bags. If you look online you can find a huge array of supplies themed towards this. How can you make your Hello Kitty party even better?

If you look on Google you can find Hello Kitty pinatas. You can also make your own pin the tail on the donkey type game. Enlist the help of someone you know who can draw good and create a pin the bow on Hello Kitty. It’s not a difficult design to draw so you may be able to have a bash yourself. Or you could opt for the tail however she has a very small tail. If you’re unfamiliar with the rules of this game you blindfold the child and spin them around three times finishing towards the direction of the poster. They are then instructed to pin the bow (or fail) onto the picture and the child that place is it the nearest the relevant position wins.

Don’t forget to prepare for some boys to be at the party and find something suited towards them in the case of party bags.

I’m occasionally asked by parents what games I do in my parties and it’s always a bit of a mouth full to explain so I have wrote this for greater clarity. To begin with, none of my games are elimination based which means no one is ever ‘out’. This ensures all the children are engaged throughout and are not going to become bored which is very important to me. On to the games!

Character statues
I tell the children to dance and when the music stops to freeze and impersonate a well known character (superheroes, Disney princesses etc). I’ll pick the most creative one each time ensuring that everyone wins. If there are a lot of children, I’ll pick multiple winners each time so by the end they have all won.
Why it’s good
– The children enjoy being on their feet, if they don’t want to pretend to be a character they will usually just  freeze normally so they still feel involved. It’s  easy to understand and we can play it instantly. The children are never bored in this game and are always riveted throughout. It’s been so good over the years.
