The Kids Ice Cream Birthday Party is great not only for celebrating an individual child, but a great summer party theme, too! You’ll sure enjoy the ice cream cone banner we made, too!

Ice Cream Party table decorationsA Kids Ice Cream Birthday Party is surely a good time for kids and adults alike! I had such a great time putting this together for my daughter, the ice cream lover.

It was filled with lots of fun decorations and details. When I asked her in the month or two before her birthday, what theme she wanted to do for a party, she immediately bursted out her two favorite toys to receive: Lego Friends and Shopkins. Though I could have gone with one of them (and did look up ideas for inspiration) I really am not a fan of creating a party theme around consumerism/toys. I like it to be more dream-like, including other things she loves besides plastic materialism, you know? She loves ice cream though, and got excited about the idea once I mentioned it. What’s fun about this, is it’s also a great SUMMER party theme, it doesn’t have to be just for a birthday party. A lot of the ideas can be a boredom buster summer activity. So without further adieu…

 

I linked up to almost all of the table decor at the very bottom of this post, so check that out for details!  I LOVE throwing theme parties, if you’d like to see tips for how to throw a theme party, I shared 10 of them on that link!

First, my girl read a book to her friends. I love to start with a book, calm down the excitement of the group. I love those inflatable ice cream cones (see below for details) Such a fun element to hang around the room.

Then we played a fun ice cream game (link below). I’m grateful for the assistance of my husband for parties!

They all thought this was pretty fun, but took a LONG time with a big group. We didn’t want to leave out anyone in her school class, plus friends from church, equals a gaggle of girls.

As a craft activity, we made some ice cream cone headbands with edible cones. They won’t last too long, but they can dismantle it later and make it non-edible.  Had my awesome helpers on hand to help with that.
