So…. You’ve made it to twelve. That’s a sixty minutes, a dozen. Twelve.

Perhaps now is the time to throw a more challenging theme, something that gravitates towards trendy,

a more mature spin. Not the wild ones, but just the ones that are a bit up-to- date. Here are some ideas

for kids parties that might just make your day a bit more exciting.

1. Pokemon Go Hunting Party

You don’t need the App for this party theme to be a success, but if any of your guests already have the

App, you might as well reward them. It’s one of those good summer birthday party ideas if you want to

keep them safe in the backyard. All you have to do is hide a few Pokemon plushies in the strategic places

that the kids can hunt for. You can give them buckets designed like Poke Balls for them to dump their

plushies in. The guidelines are simple, “gotta catch ‘em all!”. It’s going to be a riot but it’s also going to

be exciting!

2. Rock and Roll

Music is the language of the soul. Your twelve-year- old guests will definitely feel all grown up with this

Rock and Roll theme. For kids party games, you can play a Guess The Singer or Guess The Song Title in

any music category. The soundtrack is no sweat for this party theme as well, simply plug in a good set of

speakers for your Spotify playlist. As for no-hassle kids party entertainment, you can always ring Fly By

Fun and ask if there’s an Elvis Presley willing to perform a song of Are Your Lonesome Tonight. Bring on

the CDs and stars! It’s time to rock and roll!

3. Chocolatier Party

This theme is one of the winter birthday ideas that interest both boys and girls alike. The beauty of this

theme is that you get to introduce children to how chocolate is made, and who in the world does not

love chocolate? You can never run out of ideas for this party theme from invitations, to food, to

activities. It’s a full-proof theme for kids and kids-at- heart. Of course, some parents will be as equally

interested. You can book for a chocolate making demo for everybody and allow the kids to design their

chocolate creations with anything they like. Whether you’re leaning towards an informative, classy

chocolate event like a chocolate tasting, or making it fun and preppy, this theme will definitely tickle

your tastebuds.

4. Truth or Dare

One of the classic kids party games is actually Truth or Dare. The underlying lesson in this theme is to

teach kids the difference between what’s true or not, and what the consequences of one’s actions may

have. The mechanics are simple and you can prepare a list of truths or dares in advance. As a parent,

you will have to filter the tasks and questions. The party food can also be a little daring for the diet like

gummy worms, chocolate spiders, even mashed potato with gravy and bacon can be a dare.



5. Mocktails Party

Ever heard of mocktails? They are mixtures of cocktails that (surprise!) do not contain any alcoholic

beverages and are safe for children. This theme can be about helping kids develop awareness in terms of

healthy juices and help them define their favourites. You can use fresh, in-season fruits and mix them at

a makeshift bar with fresh fruit garnishes so that kids can gulp in all that healthy, fruity goodness

especially if it’s a summer afternoon. You can also use different glass sizes and designs to make it look all

grown up!

Now that your child is approaching the teen years (sigh), you can always be there for him or her and be

the guide that your child needs, with all the love and support you’re capable of giving as a parent. You

can also teach him or her that lie and work balance is important, and to live each day with purpose.

Birthday parties are meant to be fun and it’s also going to be awesome, so enjoy yourself and do

congratulate yourself for a job well done, both in raising great kids and in organising not just an

Instagram-worthy event but also a really cool birthday party!
