Party Themes - Beach Party

Updated on April 30, 2012

Recommended:

Ages 4 -7

This Beach Party is a great idea for those kids that love the surf and sand but have birthdays in the dead of winter.


Invitations

Idea 1 - On small beach ball write the party information in Sharpie before sending the deflated balls to your guests

Idea 2 - On a tattered, tan sheet of paper write out your invitation then roll it up and slip it into a small bottle with a bit of sand. Seal the bottle with a piece of cork and hand out the messages in a bottle you the guests


Decorations


  • cut streamers about 2 feet in length in different shades of green, hand them from the ceiling to look like seaweed
  • hang inflatable fish found at party stores amongst the “seaweed”
  • take all of the furniture (except for a table for food) out of the room and replace seating with beach chairs, large towels and umbrellas
  • If cold outside crank the heat so guests can be comfortable in tee shirts and sandals
  • Use new or very clean buckets and sandcastle molds as serving dishes


Games and Activities

Beach Volleyball

  • string a net across the room and divide the children into two teams and let them play an informal game of volleyball with a beach ball

Paper Plate Octopus

  • give each child a paper plate and have them decorate both sides with markers and crayons. When they are finished staple eight 12” streamers around the edge of the plate so they hand like legs to create an octopus

Pin the Tail on the Whale

  • Just like pin the tail on the donkey but made by cutting out a large whale and enough tails for every child to have one out of gray or blue butcher paper

Food

  • goldfish
  • “sand”whiches
  • tropical fruits (i.e.. kiwi, papaya, pineapple)
  • fish sticks

Favors

  • beach balls
  • swedish fish
  • sand toys
  • seashells
  • sunglasses

      Such clever ideas! Kids love to play pretend games; this would indeed enchant the age group you mentioned! I love your list of food and party favors - cute!

      Voted up, useful and awesome!
