More than Just Cake: 6 Cool Kids Birthday Party Themes for Boys and Girls

From that very first special birthday to a sweet sixteen, kids’ birthdays are always fun, raucous, and something to be cherished. Make the big day stand out for you, your kid, and your whole family with one of these kids birthday party themes. From dinosaurs to ladybugs, we’ve got party ideas and inspiration to make any kid jump with excitement — and not just from the sugar rush!

Out of this world!

Blast off with an outer space-themed party! If you’re kid is dreaming of flying to the moon, then he’ll love a birthday party decorated with space shuttles, planets, and stars. Place cookies cut with spaceship cookie cutters atop a cake for an instant space-themed birthday cake. Or go galactic with Milky Way candy bars in treat bags as party favors. Lay out some astronaut ice cream (always a kid favorite!) to complete your interstellar party!

Lights, Camera, Action!

Let your kid go from birthday star to movie star with a movie-themed party! Start with our invitations featuring marquee-style lettering to gather all of your child’s A-listers. For a party spread that’ll have the cameras flashing, these DIY cupcake toppers and water bottle labels couldn’t be easier. Simply print and glue the toppers to toothpicks and use them on cakes, fruit, and any bite-sized appetizers. We also love these popcorn cupcakes — with just a few materials, you can make ordinary store-bought cupcakes look just like classic cinema-style popcorn!


What’s red and black and spotted all over? A ladybug birthday party! For that special little ladybird in your life, you can put together a sweet celebration with these party invitations and some red and black decor. It’s not a party without balloons, so go for polka-dotted ones or simply mix and match red and black solids. Continue the color scheme with tableware, banners, and other festive decor. To keep young guests entertained, lead them in a fun craft activity like this adorable DIY ladybug. Kids can make them with a few household items and have something unique to take home and remember the party by!

All aboard!

Choo-choo-choose a train theme for your little conductor! For the birthday star obsessed with locomotives, we suggest this charming train birthday party invitation to transport the guests to your party destination. Your kid’s toy trains make a fun and easy decoration when laid out on the table or, if you’re adventurous, hung from the ceiling. Snacks in “freight cars” double as decor — fill up any small rectangular containers with treats of your choice and glue on black construction paper circles for wheels. To complete the look, you and your kid can draw some train tracks together as a pre-party art activity!

Totally Triassic

This popular party theme won’t go extinct anytime soon! Kids of all ages seem to love prehistoric creatures, and lucky for you, a dinosaur birthday party won’t break your bank or back. Once you’ve posted the dino invitations, you can print out these fearsome dinosaur masks right at home. Just remember to pick up some elastic string to complete the masks. Instead of (or in addition to!) a birthday cake, opt for super-cool cupcakes decorated to look like rocks and dirt. Simply top any cupcake with crushed chocolate biscuits and chocolate rock candy (easily found online). For a fun snack, we love peanut M&Ms as dinosaur eggs!

Eye of the Tiger

A wild party is a good party! If your little one’s looking for a jungle-themed bash, then these animal party invitations are right up your alley. Small animal figurines make fantastic cake toppers, and we can’t think of any surface (or food!) that can’t benefit from some leopard spots and zebra stripes. Put animal crackers, tropical smoothies (try banana-pineapple), and Runts candy on the menu for a roaring good time.

When the big day arrives, don’t forget to take lots of pictures! We find that kids birthdays always come and go too fast, so snap away!
