Enter a party business and you will find dozens of different theme ideas from the birthday party, from American Idol to Zoology. But the thing is that they are all done a thousand times before. Maybe you don't want the same old, the same old one. You want something else. More importantly, you like the theme of reflecting your Christian faith – which Hannah Montana or Tony Hawk can't just do.
Why not throw your son or daughter a Christian theme party? Because you probably will not find these themes in party deals, it will take a little more planning. But with a little thought and a little extra time you are sure to end up with a fun and unique party that will be a meeting with both kids and parents.
Here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing:
NOAH & # 39; s ARK. Know someone who has a boat that you can borrow or rent for the day? Invite your children's friends to a party on Noah's ark. Dress up your child like Noah and make guests dress like their favorite animals. No boat available? No problem! Create your own boat in the basement or party room. Decorate with cut-out animals, rainbows and other Noah's Ark accessories.
Another option: If it's a summer birthday and the weather allows, hand out the rain showers and put on the sprinklers for forty minutes of fun in "rain".
PRINCESS. Who needs to dress like Cinderella or Snow White? Your little girl is a True King child – so treat her like the real princess she is! Invite all her friends to the castle for a royal feast. Have lots of dresses, high-heeled shoes and white elbow gloves on the side to dress up. Tiara is absolutely necessary.
BIBLE CHARACTER. Perfect for all ages. Take the guests up as their favorite Bible character. Firstly, the game, play "Ten Questions" and let the kids ask "yes or no" questions to see if they can discover what biblical character their friends depict. If you prefer not to play dress up, a game option is to point the Bible's character name to each guest's back. Then, the guests have mixed themselves and asked questions about their character to try to guess who they are.
The amazing church This is a great party idea for older children who can drive. If you are under age planning a driver for each team car. Let the teams run (within the speed limit, of course!) To some different churches in the area and perform tasks as they would for a scavenger hunt. Maybe they need to get a bulletin from the secretary, take a digital photo of an employee or get the name of the youth prize. If churches are closed, you require a digital photo of the church itself as proof that they did the task.
POPULA VIDEO CHARACTERS. With the many Christian videos in the market, some children are bent on a certain character party. 1-2-3 Penguins, Hermie, Adventures in Odyssey and Life at the Pond are all video-based themes that you can base your party around. And, of course, Veggie Tales is one of the Christian based themes you'll find on the average party business.
Use these ideas as springboards for your own creativity. Plan a party for your child that the kids will not only enjoy, they will talk about it for a long time to come.
