Your little darling’s birthday is coming up and you want to make her day extra special by throwing a themed birthday celebration. It may be tempting to simply plan a recycled version of all of her friends’ princess-themed bashes, but why not make it memorable by giving the party a much-needed twist? Here are just some ways to throw an awesome action-princess party!
Characters: Cinderella, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty are all old favorites, but sitting around waiting for your prince to come gets dull after a while. So why not liven things up and shift the focus to Merida, Tiana, Mulan and Pocahontas?
Costumes: No Princess Party is complete without costumes for your daughters to dress-up in, and this is no different! Instead of the usual fancy gowns, hand your child a bright red wig and a bow, or Mulan’s armor.
Games: Games are essential to keeping any children’s party going, so it’s important to get creative! One idea is to throw a scavenger hunt to find the bear that’s threatening Merida’s kingdom; Disney trivia with questions focused on films like Brave and Mulan is sure to make the time fly by! Instead of playing house, why not have the girls run Tiana’s Dream Restaurant?
Invitations: Invitations are like a first impression, and therefore, it’s important to make a good one that sticks to the theme. Be sure to use bold font and attention-grabbing coloring. If the party’s centered on Brave, consider using colors such as vivid green and blue, and including a picture of the heroine.
Party Favors: We all love showing our gratitude to our guests for attending with party favors! How about copies of the Princess and The Frog DVD? A cheaper alternative would be action-princess roller stickers or figurines. Note: these can also make excellent rewards in the games suggested above.
