Trying to find a fun theme for your children's party? If there is one thing that every child loves, it's a birthday party. It doesn't even have to be their own party, since they know they will be playing party games, eating fun treats, and may even receive a goodie bag filled with fun toys.  Even though we may have forgotten some of the joys of attending little kid birthday parties as we became adults, it's still fun creating these adorable parties for our children. The challenging part, however, is finding the perfect themes - ones that not only fit our children's personalities, but will make all of their little friends happy as well! Below, we have included some of our favorite children's party themes that are good for girls, and boys.

Children's Theme: Dinosaurs

If there is one thing most children enjoy, it's dinosaurs. Children love learning about these prehistoric reptiles and pretending to be one.  Since children love dinosaurs, it is easy make a themed party a fun educational experience. It is easy to pick out fun dinosaur books, toys, and/or candies in dinosaur themed goodie bags, encouraging small children to have fun and learn at the same time!

Jungle Animal Stuffed AnimalsChildren's Theme: Jungle/Zoo

Another of the most popular themed parties for children actually revolves around modern-day animals. Children love seeing animals that live in the zoo, and the jungle as well. Many children are interested in these animals, especially since many have been playing with similar stuffed toys since they were smaller. These parties are quick and easy for parents to plan, since they can pick from a wide variety of novelty toys, stuffed animals, and even animal shaped lollipops.

Carnival CupcakesChildren's Theme: Carnival

Of course, what child doesn't love going to see a carnival?  With all the different attractions at these events, it isn't too surprising that many children dream of their chance of seeing their next carnival, and maybe even enjoy  pretending they are the ringmaster! Today, you can find a pretty wide selection of party sets to help you create (and complement) the perfect carnival party. These sets include everything you need for goodie bags, decorating your house, and even making adorable circus themed cupcakes!

Superhero CostumeChildren's Theme: Superhero

Let's face it, kids love superheroes, especially after seeing summer blockbusters like Iron Man or the Avengers. With children dreaming of being superheroes when they grow up, it's not too surprising that kids want to have a superhero themed party. This is one of the 

Pirate Goody Bagfew themes that is perfect for playing dress up at as well since kids can wear capes, masks, and other fun superhero items. You may even be able to find cute superhero themed toys for goodie bags!

Children's Themes: Pirates

Another party theme that has been getting a lot of attention due to movies are pirate parties. Kids are fascinated with pretending to be pirates, especially after seeing the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Out of all the parties, this can easily be the most rewarding but time-consuming, since parents can make treasure maps to hidden treasure and even have pirate costumes available to the children at the party. As well, children will love having access to pirate themed toys, candies, and more when they find their pirate treasure!

These are some good ideas for Birthday Party's! I haven't done a boy theme yet though. My favorite would probably be doing a zoo theme, that would be fun! I just actually got done throwing a mustache birthday party and a month before a frozen birthday party! It can be very challenging sometimes! I cut out and glittered about 100 mustaches and all i have to say is TIME CONSUMING, but all worth it when you see a child's face light up!

These are darling ideas. We once had an Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter's birthday party where the kids made different animal masks. Fortunately it was nice enough outside to do it on the patio because though t was fun it was a mess! Also, I cut out all of the pieces for assembly beforehand - no scissors!

I love all these ideas for a kid's theme party. My granddaughter is turning 8 and she has decided she wants a zoo/carnival type party with booths for the other kids to win things. We have so many toys we have collected from her and her sister (they are 8-to be and 10) that we have collected from them playing games at fairs and street-fests that we have enough animals to donate. They hardly ever played with them other than to put them on the couch to watch movies with them. I asked if she wanted them and she jumped at the chance. They look brand new so why not?
