Miscellaneous Monday - Five Fun Youth Party Themes

As a youth librarian, I am always looking for fun program ideas.  I’ve noticed that a lot of our programs would make fantastic children’s parties.  Here are five fun ideas that go beyond the traditional party themes. (Links are to my Pinterest boards for those themes).

A great theme for preschoolers through tweens.  Design your own superhero, complete with logo and mask. Hold a trivia contest and run an obstacle course.

This is sure to delight tweens and teens. Trivia, snacks, crafts and a zombie apocalypse drill.

Give manicures and pedicures, make jewelry, lip gloss, bath salts and more, sip mocktails from fancy glasses. Tween and teen girls will have a blast.

Upcycling is all the rage! Crafts made from materials that would normally be recycled or thrown away, such as egg cartons, bread tags, floppy disks, and cereal boxes.

Show a whimsical side with a tea party inspired by Alice in Wonderland.  Giant tissue paper flowers, brightly colored sweets, and a game of “flamingo” croquet.
