50 Birthday Party Themes for Toddlers!

It’s almost September and we have just begun our planning for Bean’s 3rd Birthday party! Before we talk location, the guest list or food I would like to get our theme nailed down. Then we can choose everything around and according to the theme. I’ve been asking Bean for weeks now what she would like and it changes pretty much every time. 🙂 I decided to put together a list of my top party themes and share them with you today!

50 unique birthday party themes

  1. Sesame Street (this is versatile and you can go with all of the characters or just choose your child’s favorite)
  2. Ice Cream Social (use everything from ice cream shaped decor to an ice cream cone cake, you can even have the kids make their own sundaes)
  3. Barbie
  4. Princess (Let the kids decorate their own princess crowns and even dress up as their favorite princess)
  5. Disney Princesses (Choose one or all of the Disney princesses to feature)
  6. DIY Crafting Party (bust out your art supplies and let the kids make their own simple DIY crafts, no need for favors as their projects will be their take home. Check out some of our videos for inspiration.)
  7. Tie Die (Have the kids make their own tie die shirts)
