Bring the Outside In with Indoor Party Themes!

Do your winter-born kids have summer birthday party envy? Perhaps they’ve always dreamt of having a barbecue or pool party for their special day. Luckily for them, you could bring the outside in with these fun party themes! With these theme ideas, your kids will want it to be winter all year long.  Check out these 3 indoor party theme ideas for kids:


Winter Beach Bash

If you can’t go to the beach, bring the beach to you. To make it feel like you’re little ones are really soaking up the sun, hang up an island backdrop to use as a background for photos. Tell all your guests to bring their best beach attire and hand out some fun sunglasses and hats,  and blow up some pool floats as props. Set up a DIY tiki bar where your little surfers can help themselves to fruity refreshments. Make a splash with a surprise guest like a mermaid princess or sea creature. Play sift and find with toys and sand inside of large plastic bins. You can also book a balloon twister to create everyone’s favorite sea friend.


Snowed-In Safari

Welcome to the jungle! With this theme, not only will your kids forget it’s winter, they’ll feel like they’re across the globe! First, start with a face painter to transform all the kiddos into their wild beast of choice. Make a pair of DIY binoculars with recycled cardboard rolls to take with them on the adventure. Hold a stuffed animal rescue; it doubles as a fun indoor activity, as well as a party favor. If you’re looking to seriously thrill your party animals, book a petting zoo or reptile show.


Cozy Campout

The weather outside is frightful, but the campfire is so delightful! Experience the fun of a camping trip in your living room this winter. Pitch a tent or set up a fort with chairs and large blankets. Have a photobooth set up, complete with essential camping props. Throw up some glow in the dark stars on the ceiling for late-night star gazing. Plan a scavenger hunt throughout the house with a prize for the first camper to complete the list. Hire a caricaturist to draw up all the happy campers.
