Ultimate List of Unique Party Ideas for 7 Year Olds

When it comes to planning a party for 7 year olds, let your imagination fly! Pretty much any new adventure will appeal to their sense of curiosity, imagination, and wonder.

This post will share the best & brightest ways to create a unique party that will truly impress your child’s guests.

Table of Contents

How to Make a Common Party Theme Unique?

‘Common’ themes are parties designed around popular TV, movie, or book characters.

Typically these parties can be planned and purchased at a supermarket: walk to the party aisle, choose one of 4-6 popular themes, purchase all of the themed paper goods & decorations, and pick up a matching cake from the bakery on your way out.

These parties are wonderful because they are super easy & require little effort, but they can feel a bit generic.

Luckily, there are some simple ways to adjust common themes so that they feel special and unique for your child. We’ll show you how.

Look for inspiration in the common theme show, movie, or book that your child loves – Watch it again with a new perspective

1. Play With The Setting

Be it a room, car or a boat; try to think of different settings for your party. If you’re hosting a bunch of 7-year olds in your home, this is an easy fix. You can convert the space into a completely different place. The den becomes an ice rink or the living room becomes a magic treehouse.

2. Add a Twist

Instead of going with the same theme that has been done over and over again, add your child’s own twist to it by combining the theme with another thing your child loves. For example, if your daughter wants to have a princess-themed party for your daughter’s 7th birthday but she also loves pirates, then make the theme Pirate Princess Adventure! Keep standard princess decorations, with a greater focus on pirate decor items such as gold coins or jeweled swords.

Another way of doing this is by combining your theme with a certain color or material (glitter, dinosaur skin, etc). For example, you could throw a Purple Sparkle Harry Potter Party, or a Red Hot Hulk Party.

3. Focus on A Minor Character or Plot Element

You can make a party theme more unique, by focusing on a less important character or theme. For example, instead of having a straight Pokemon party, choose a specific Pokemon to celebrate or set the party in a Gym where guests can battle with ease.

4. Use Your Child’s Imagination

Its highly likely that your child has already imagined all sorts of ways that their favorite characters or theme could be brought to life! Pick their brains for what their “dream” party would look like — they’ll be excited to see everything come to life and will help you personalize the party.

What are the Best Unique Party Theme Ideas for 7 year olds?

Gender Neutral

Party themes that appeal to boys or girls… maybe your party will have both!

Haunted House Party

If you want to throw a unique, unexpected party, have a spooky haunted house in the middle of April or July. Ghosts don’t take a break from haunting just because its the middle of spring, and it doesn’t need to be Halloween to enjoy a good spooky party!

You can use a dark room and scary decorations, play scary music (such as “The Grudge” soundtrack), have a scary storyteller tell stories, serve scary food (like pizza with fake blood on it), and give out candy that has been dipped in chocolate syrup.

Lost Ancient Artifact Treasure Hunt

Merging adventure with history might be one of our favorite combinations! Treasure Hunts are a great idea for your little one’s birthday party, so why not give this one a realistic treasure? There are quite a few lost treasures remaining in the world according to Live Science:

  • Arc of the Covenant
  • Sarcophagus Of Menkaure
  • The Crown Jewels of Ireland

Paper Airplane Build Party

This idea is perfect for a 7-year-old who can’t get enough of designing new things or just creating paper airplanes. Invite guests over to try new designs and produce beautiful aircrafts.

Set up a craft table with all the needed supplies, models, and decorations for kids to experiment. Then allow your children’s friends to enter into friendly competitions: Who can fly theirs the farthest? Who can compete in both distance and speed?

Backyard Campout Shindig

You can set up your backyard for a full-on campout experience. Put up a tent, have the kids cook outdoors on the grill and make s’mores, then sleep in sleeping bags under the stars. Add some fun activities like games and movies to make it even more fun!

You can change this party theme to fit your child’s interests by having an animal theme or space theme instead of a camping one. You could also plan to go on a trip somewhere where you can really live like a camper!

Science Lab Experiment Party

It’s no secret that kids love science, and a science lab experiment party is a fun way to celebrate a 7-year-old’s birthday. Here are some tips on how to make your party the most of a fun, interesting, and exploratory:

  • Get several cool experiments from Amazon or your local bookstore. You can include items like these in loot bags for each guest.
  • Show an experiment video before starting the actual activity. It’s helpful for kids to see what happens in advance so they won’t be surprised by anything unusual when it’s their turn!
  • Have one of your experiments be something that guests can take home with them—this way you’ll keep your little scientists’ interest even after the party is over!

Girly Gala

Makeover Design Party – Creating a New “Look” with Makeup and Hair

To celebrate your daughter’s big day, you could have a makeover design party. Guests can make new friends as they enjoy snacks, do their nails, style their hair, or get their makeup done.

Jewelry Design Party

Invite your child’s friends over to design their own jewelry! You can make rings, bracelets, necklaces, hair accessories or more – The possibilities are endless. Don’t forget to get snacks like candy necklaces and ring pops.

Tea or Hot Chocolate Party

This is the perfect party idea for your seven year old if he or she likes having friends over. A tea or hot chocolate party has all the ingredients of a great time with friends:

  • Tea parties are fun! Who doesn’t love being served tea and treats, especially when it’s in a fancy atmosphere?
  • Hot chocolate bars are also fun to make, eat, and drink. Your little one will love getting to pick their favorite toppings and mix them together into their own special hot chocolate creation.
  • Add some desserts like cookies and brownies to round out this party theme with a sweet ending!

Boy Bash

Marvel Superhero & Comic Book Design Party

This isn’t just a party about superheroes, its the kind of party you would expect to see in a comic book. It’s the superhero extravaganza that will make your child feel like an actual superhero.

To achieve that goal, plan a variety of heroic activities that will challenge guests physical and mental abilities.

Bring your guests further into the super hero magic by getting them involved in designing their own superhero or comic book cover. You can print out templates, or just give them blank paper and let them draw whatever they want. If you want to go all out, have the kids autograph their book and get them laminated.

Ultimate Structure Creation Party – Design, Plan and Build an Obstacle Course or Fort

Boys love to be physical and creative. Instead of planning a highly detailed party, create an environment where your guests can create their own fun. Challenge them to make build the best fort and design a complicated obstacle course. If you give them raw materials, guidance, and a little time your guests will have a fantastic time!

Unique Party Ideas For 5 Year Olds

If you’re looking for unique party ideas for your child’s 5th birthday, it can be hard to figure out what to do. As someone who has gone through this myself many times, I know how difficult it can be. And as a blogger for kids’ activities, I am always searching for ideas and new things to try. In this blog post, I will share some of the best ones that we have found or tried ourselves. This list is not exhaustive – there are so many other great ideas out there! If you have one that isn’t listed here please let me know in the comments section below!

What are the most unique parties for 5 year olds?

1. Bubble Disco

Bubble discos are a groovy way to celebrate! Your five year old and their friends will have loads of fun blowing bubbles, dancing, and playing games.

2. Slime Party

Slime is great fun for kids of all ages, but it’s especially popular with five year olds. It’s a very tactile activity and goes hand in hand with science and sensory play. You can make your own slime with just a few ingredients, or you can buy some ready made. There are lots of different types of slime on the market now, including glow in the dark slime and edible slime!

3. Carnival Games

Carnival games are an easy way to add some fun to your party! Kids can play these games solo or in groups, so there will be plenty of chances for everyone to get involved.

The best carnival games for kids are those that involve aiming for targets or knocking down bottles, tossing, and fishing. Don’t forget to serve yummy carnival food like hot dogs and cotton candy!

4. Treasure Hunt

A treasure hunt is a fun way to get kids moving and thinking creatively. You can make it a race, which gives everyone an incentive to go fast. Or you could make it a scavenger hunt, where each team gets points for each item they find. Either way, the kids will have a great time!

5. Train Ride

A ride-on train is a great way to celebrate a birthday with small children, especially those who are fascinated by trains. You can buy one, rent, or visit one in your community.

6. Water Play

Water play is one of the most popular activities at kids’ parties. It’s a great way to cool off during the warmer months and something that can be easily adapted to suit any guest count. At our five-year-old’s birthday party, we had a small pool set up in the back garden with a few inflatables floating around inside it. We also set up an area where kids could fill their own buckets with water and throw water balloons so they could play around with it after they’d had their fill of splashing around!

7. Backyard Farm Party

If your child loves the farm, then this is a perfect theme for his or her birthday party. You can decorate your backyard with farm animals and set up a small barn where they can play games. You can also add props like hay bales and stumps so that they look like they’re in an actual farm. There are many different types of games that you can play at this kind of party including cowboys and Indians, hide-and-seek, tag, etc.

8. Art Party

Young children love coloring, so why not throw them an art party? All you need are some crayons, colored pencils or markers and an old box (we have an old shoe box we use). Then, head over to Etsy and download these printable coloring sheets. They’re designed specifically for this age group and they come in different themes (pets, princesses, dinosaurs and more!). Finally, set up your table with all the supplies and let the kids go at it!

9. Music Making Party

A music making party for 5 year olds is a great idea for a birthday celebration. Many kids this age are eager to learn how to play an instrument or sing, and they can have fun doing it! You can also teach them dance moves and have them practice some of the dance steps you know.

10. Night Games Party

You can throw a flash light party for your 5 year old’s birthday. The best part about this is that your child will get to go outside and play with their friends in the dark. They will also be able to make crafts using flashlights.

You can have games for the kids to play with glow sticks, like T-shirt Tag or Freeze Dance! A flashlight party is an awesome way to celebrate because it gives the kids freedom and allows them to express themselves while they are having fun.

11. Zoo Animal Party

Your child’s 5th birthday is a big one, and you want to celebrate it in a way that reflects both their age and the world around them. The Zoo Animal Party Theme is the perfect way to do this! This theme is ideal for any kid who loves animals, but can be adapted to fit any party needs or budget.

12. Safari Jungle Party

If you’re looking for a fun party theme that is sure to be a hit with kids, consider going on safari! The party can be held at the park or at home with your own backyard being transformed into the jungle environment.

13. Under The Sea Party

This is one of our favorite party themes because it’s so versatile. You can do it in just about any color scheme and decorate with anything from fish nets to beach balls. It also lends itself well to a variety of activities, like making play dough seashells or painting ocean scenes on paper plates. A fun craft project for this theme is making fish puppets out of colored paper plates and pipe cleaners.

14. Dinosaur World

Have a roaring good time at a dinosaur party! You can start off with the egg hunt. If you want to make it even more fun, hide some eggs outside in the backyard and then bring them into the house as well. The kids will love this! You might also want to include some kind of craft activities or sticker books.

Conclusion

Planning a unique party for your child isn’t easy. I hope you found some party ideas that have given you inspiration for your little one’s next birthday. Please comment with any other themes or activities that have been a big hit at your kid’s parties!

What are the best party ideas for creative toddlers?

Storybook Party

Ask guests dress up like a character from their favorite book.
Have a storybook reading session and have a book swap, where guests bring books for others to trade & take home with them.

Sensory Party – Messy is Okay!

If your toddler is anything like mine, then sensory parties are a hit! My daughter loves to get messy and play with all the different textures. It’s also great for their development. Activities like finger painting, shaving cream, play dough, and blobbing paint will keep all of your little guests engaged & entertained.

Upgrade-A-Bear

This classic Build-A-Bear spin-off party is a creative child’s dream! Ask each guest to bring their favorite stuffed animal for games, treats, and a little innovative sizzle.

Provide design materials like felt, paper, scissors, glue, and markers for the guest to make accessories for both the themselves and the stuffed animal. The kids will have fun making little outfits, masks, and bows while their stuffed animals will love being the center of attention!

What are the best themes for active toddlers?

Scavenger Hunt Obstacle Course Party

Scavenger hunts are a fun way to get the kids moving, but they’re also great for learning. When you create a list of items to find, you can include things that will teach your little one about the world around them—like looking for a rock with moss on it or finding an orange leaf. Add an extra bit of challenge to the hunt by throwing in a few extra obstacles! Toddlers will love the mix of physical and mental challenges.

This party activity is also incredibly versatile: Not only does it work well for indoor or outdoor parties, but you can easily adjust the difficulty level depending on how old your guests are and how much time you have!

Action Sports Party

This is a great idea for kids who love playing outside with their friends and family. Set up stations around the house that have different sports activities for each guest to participate in. For example, set up a basketball hoop in one room and have your guests shoot baskets. Set up an archery target with balloons taped onto it in another room and have them try to hit them with soft arrows. In another room, set up a soccer net and have them kick balls into it.

You can also set up areas where kids can play cards or board games, while others are participating in the active sports activities.

What are the best food themed parties?

Farmer’s Market Party

Toddlers love food! You can have a farmer’s market or supermarket themed birthday party for your toddler. You can serve different types of food including fruits, vegetables, meats and cheeses and let the children enjoy the tasting experience. This is an excellent way to introduce toddlers to healthy eating habits.

Set up some activity stations around the yard or indoors for different fruits, vegetables, dips, or sauces. You can also set up stations for simple food prep activities like peeling, cutting, and mixing.

Cake Decorating Party

Hosting a Cake Decorating Party is a great way to celebrate your little one’s birthday. It’s also an opportunity for them to make friends with other toddlers, since they won’t be as focused on the cake and icing as much as they’d be at a traditional birthday party.

Have some extra icing in case things get messy!

DIY Pizza Party!

Kids love putting on different toppings, sauces, and cheeses on their own slices of pizza.

Making pizza from scratch is a great way to let kids be in charge of their toppings. They can choose what they want on their pizza, and will have fun figuring out how to put it all together!

While youre waiting for the pizzas to cook, set up some guest entertainment with a coloring station or head outside for a water balloon fight.

Conclusion

It can be overwhelming to plan a party for toddlers. It’s important to remember that the most important thing about your child’s party is that it’s fun and safe for everyone. So, hopefully we gave you some great ideas that you can use at your next gathering!

Special Party Entertainment Ideas For 6 Year Olds

Introduction

If you’re planning an upcoming party for a six-year-old and feeling a little bit stumped, we have some wonderful ideas to get you started. Whether it’s an indoor or outdoor party, in the heat of summer or during the chillier months of fall and winter, these ideas will inspire you to throw a fantastic party that your child will remember forever.

Successful Party Suggestions

Having a successful party for kids is easy with these suggestions.

  • Give the kids something to do. Kids love to be active, so give them something that involves running around and getting their energy out. .
  • Make sure that the kids are having fun! A good rule of thumb is if they’re not having fun, then you’re not doing it right! Keep things light, fun, and easy going.
  • Keep the party short and sweet. Don’t let things drag on longer than necessary. Short, simple, and fun activities are the best.

Other kids party ideas you might be interested in:

Indoor Picnic

Cover the floor with a blanket or a bedsheet, put down some toys & books, and stock up on food and drinks that are easy for little hands to hold (sandwiches cut into quarters, small containers of yogurt) or that can be eaten with fingers (fruit skewers).

Sock Skating

To set up the game, you will need a small space with enough room for all the players to stand in a circle. The kids should be evenly spaced and facing outward. The players should have their socks on (if they are not wearing them already). Then you need a ball, which can be anything from a tennis ball or soccer ball to even an inflated beach ball!

The rules of sock skating are simple: You must keep one foot on the ground at all times, but you may use your other foot to kick or move the ball around as needed. If someone steps off their designated toe spot (their “toe box”) then they are out of the game!

Balloon Animals

Balloon animals are a classic party entertainment idea for kids of all ages. There are so many different types of balloons available today that you can find one that will suit any theme or color scheme.

Face Painting

Face painting is one of the most popular party entertainment ideas for children. It’s fun, it’s inexpensive and it’s easy to do! You can find face painting kits at most party supply stores or online.

The best part about face painting is that it is a great way to engage your guests and make them feel special! Face painting can also be a great way to keep kids entertained while you’re preparing food or getting ready for the party.

Musical Statues

Musical statues is a game that everyone can play, and it’s perfect for your six-year-old’s birthday party. It’s also a great way to keep kids entertained without having to worry about them getting bored or losing control of the situation.

Musical statues is pretty simple—you just stand still while music plays (or while someone counts down from 10). Then, when the music stops or someone says “freeze!” everyone has to stay frozen in whatever position they’re in until the music starts playing again. If you want, you can make it more fun by playing loud music so that children have a harder time staying still or making them freeze into funny positions instead of just standing there like statues!

Dress Up Box Party

A dress up box party is a fun party idea for kids. Invite guests to bring a costume to wear at the party. Make sure the costumes are age appropriate and have a theme, like pirates or fairies. This can be an easy way to entertain children!

Treasure Hunt

A treasure hunt can be a fun way for your child to celebrate their big day. You don’t want to make it too hard or too easy, but somewhere in between so that they are able to find the clues and finish before time runs out.

You can make it as simple or complex as you please with either a basic list of random objects and directions to find them, or you could create an extensive scavenger hunt with puzzles and riddles written out on pieces of paper that need solving first before being able to continue with the next clue.

Tea Party

A tea party is a great way to bring a little bit of elegance and sophistication to your 6-year-old’s party. Invite a few friends over, make some fancy hats, drink tea, and eat cookies. Yum!

Conclusion

9 Best Easy Finger Food Ideas For a Kids Birthday Party

Have you ever thrown a kid’s birthday party where you’ve had to serve food to kids? Spoiler alert! Its a lot of preparation, serving, and clean up.

Maybe it’s time to think outside of the box.

When we host parties, I like to plan a menu that my family and guests will not only enjoy, but also will be very simple for me to organize. I’ve found that finger foods are some of the easiest to assemble and are sure to be a hit with guests!

Links to official recipes are embedded in the recipe name – I hope you enjoy my list of favorites!

These finger foods are broken down into a few categories:

  • Savory
  • Sweets
  • Healthy (fruits & veggies)

What are the best savory finger foods?

Confetti Pinwheels (Tortillas or Bread)

  • Tortillas or Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
  • Cheese Filling: Cream cheese, shredded cheese (cheddar, Swiss or Monterey jack)
  • ‘Confetti’: Jalapeno peppers, red onions, tomato and lettuce are my favorites)

The first step is to spread cream cheese on one tortilla. Then layer shredded cheese on top of the cream cheese. Then add your chopped veggies and roll it up tight like a burrito. Repeat until you have enough for everyone at your party! Then cut them into slices and enjoy!

Ham and Cheese Roll-Ups

Ham and Cheese Roll-Ups are a childhood favorite: simple to make, easy to transport and require no utensils—a win! Just spread some cream cheese on your choice of tortilla (we recommend white or whole wheat), add ham slices along with some cheddar cheese slices, roll up tightly then wrap in plastic wrap or place in a container for storage until ready for serving.

Baked Mini Quiches

Baked mini quiches are the perfect finger food for your child’s birthday party. Kids love them and they are so easy to make! You can even make these ahead of time, which makes preparation an absolute breeze.

Quiche is also a versatile dish that can be made with almost any filling you can imagine, including vegetables and meats. And if you happen to have some leftovers around the house (and who doesn’t?), this recipe is an awesome way to use them up!

Mini Corn Dogs

Mini corn dogs are a great finger food for kids. They can be made easily and served easily, making them perfect for parties. Plus, your kids will love eating them because they’re so yummy!

BBQ Crockpot Meatballs

You can also prepare a double batch of meatballs in the crockpot and serve them with toothpicks. This makes it easy to grab a few at a time, and they won’t be as messy as if you had served them on skewers.

Serve the meatballs with ketchup or barbecue sauce for dipping. You can also serve your meatballs on top of bread or rolls for an even easier finger food experience!

Mini Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

For this finger food idea, you’ll need:

  • White bread (preferably whole wheat if possible)
  • A cookie cutter that fits on top of your muffin tin and will give you mini circles. If you don’t have one, use a round cutter to make the circles instead.
  • Mini muffin tins (and paper liners if using them)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut out all the white bread rounds using your cookie cutter or round cutter. Place them into mini muffin tins lined with paper cupcake liners if desired. Bake for 10 minutes until golden brown on top and bottom of each sandwich. Remove from oven and serve warm!
