Tips for designing kids birthday party invitations

Looking for birthday party invitations ideas here and article and video review

One of the best things about hosting a kid’s birthday party is making the most of all the extras. Kid’s birthday parties are a great excuse to break out the decorations, silly food, and great games. One great thing about these parties is that too much is never enough. You might as well put your all into it and have fun doing so. You’ll love it, and the kids will, too. While food and decor are often easily done, invitations are one part of a birthday party that sometimes doesn’t get a chance to shine.

Invitations are a great way to get across the point and theme of the party. They’re a great way to show kids what they’re about to experience. They show guests what to expect, and will give them a taste of the effort you’ve put in to a party. Fortunately, there are many things you can do with kid’s birthday party invitations to make them stand out.

Match your kid’s birthday party invitations to the party theme. If you’re hosting a girls birthday party that is horse themed, shape your invitations like horses. Consider stapling a mane and tail of crepe paper to the invitations to make them really stand out. If you’re hosing a pirate party, shape your invitations like a skull and cross bones. Or, alternatively, make your invitations look like a treasure map. You can make the paper look old like an ancient map by squeezing some lemon juice on it and baking it in the oven.

Pop up and fold out invites are also great for kids birthday invitations. Kids love lifts the flap activities, even when they’re a bit older. You can take a cue from Mad Magazine and try a fold out, or you can get creative and design your own pop up. For example, you could have a treasure chest with a fold up lid. Or a frog invitation with a tongue made from a water balloon that can be rolled out. A rolled up scroll tied with a ribbon would also be great for a medieval or ancient Egypt themed birthday party. If you’re having a space themed party, buy some green paper plates and decorate them to look like UFOs. You can write the party details on the back.

If you don’t like the idea of paper kid’s birthday invitations, you may be able to design electronic invitations instead. Most kids will have access to a computer and the internet. This will certainly be the case for older children. You can design an attractive invitation using your word processing program and email to the children who are invited. Make sure to request an RSVP, though, as it can be easy to ignore an invite.

There are plenty of things you can do with kids birthday party invitations that will attract kids’ interest and get them excited about the party that they’re about to attend. There’s no need to spend a lot of money on store bought invitations. After all, these can be bland and dull anyway. Inject some of your own personality into your invitations by designing your own and getting your kids to help out. This will personalize your invitations and contribute to a fun party atmosphere.
