Storybook birthday party theme
If books are a top hobby for your little one, try throwing them a storybook party where they can be their favourite character and indulge in fun and fantasy straight from the pages of famous reads.
Storybook theme invitations
You can easily make 'mini book' invitations by stapling together scraps of paper. Start with “Once upon a time” on the cover and tell a tiny story of your child’s childhood to now and why they’re celebrating. To keep kids busy for a few hours, you could also get your child to illustrate each invitation.
Storybook party theme costume ideas
Have each child come dressed as their favourite character from a book. Get them to bring their favourite book too.
Storybook party theme decorations
- Cover the walls in photocopied book pages or make a garland from library cards or bookmarks.
- Hang an assortment of tea cups from trees for an Alice in Wonderland feel.
Storybook party theme activities and birthday party games
- Instead of a pinata, make a storybook cubby house just like in Hansel and Gretel.
- Have a puppet show of a simple story like Goldilocks and the Three Bears or The Three Little Pigs.
- Have an adult read a favourite book at the party. Engage kids by letting them turn the pages or try to guess what will happen next.
- Have a book swap: have each child bring a book in lieu of a present and place them in a big pile then have each child pick a book from the pile. Or have them hand their book to the child next to them.
- Have the children make up their own story or paint or draw pictures to tell a story, then fold it into a little book.
- Make bookmarks: give kids pre-cut bookmarks to decorate with pencils and textas.
Storybook theme take-home party bag ideas
Calico book bags from Spotlight with the child’s name stamped on it – voila, their own library bag. Send them home with the book from the book swap.
