Activities and Games |
Have guest come dressed in their camoflauge clothing and present a child's size camoflauge helment and dog tags when they arrive! Don't forget your own camoflauge clothing! Camoflauge style clothes are easy to get at discount stores since they are fairly popular. Below you will find decorating ideas for your room and table, activity and game suggestions and party food ideas. These suggestions are geared toward the Army theme, but could be altered if you have a child that loves hunting.
Army Party Decorating Ideas:
Balloons and streamers...the basic decorating stand-bys...are always an inexpensive and easy way to turn any room into a festive birthday party. Attach streamers from center of ceiling to each corner of the room. Use two colors (green and yellow) and twist streamers for effect. Or...attach short streamers from doorways or down walls. Decorate with a camoflauge metallic balloon, plus plenty of green and yellow balloons. Tie in bunches of 3 around room and/or attach one balloon to the back of each chair at the table. Use extra balloons on the "birthday" chair. Give each child a balloon to take home after the party. If your child has some army figures or toy vehicles, set those around in room for decoration and for kids to play with.
The easiest way to bring out any party theme is with the paper products for your table.
Decorate your table with Army camoflauge theme paper goods for easy clean up. Add plates or napkins in solid colors if desired. Have a few small army trucks around on table. Have a party theme blowout, army helment and loot bag for each child.
Fun Idea: Use a new child's army helment as a snack bowl.
Army Party Activities
Activity and Game Ideas
1. Obstacle Course - Set up a simple obstacle course. Upon completion, present each chid with a Boot Camp Certificate.
2. Combat Zone!
- Kids could have a mock rescue or mock battle. Better if able to do outside, but could be done inside.
3. Red Light - Green Light! - This classic game is great for an army theme party.
4. Pass the Helment!
- Play a kids song or army theme song. Have players sit in a circle and pass a child's army helment (or toy) until the music stops. The player left holding the hat when the music stops is out. Keep passing until only one player is left. They get a prize!
5. Pin the Tail on the Donkey
- An old favorite at every birthday party.
Party Food Ideas
Combat Makes You Hungry!
Beef Jerky and hard melba toast would be perfect ideas for an army theme party! Also, use these ideas:
Serve finger foods that are easy and fun for children and keep it simple. A fun idea that children love is peanut butter and jelly on party rolls. These are just kid sized! Add some small snacks such as cheese bits, potato chips, mini chocolate chip cookies or animal crackers.
Serve on Camoflauge theme paper products for easy clean up.
Pack lunches in a bag, box or backpack so "soldiers" can eat while "on maneuvers". Pack a sandwich (or melba toast and cheese), beef jerky, chips and juice box.
The Birthday Cake!
Make your own cake by swirling the top of a chocolate iced cake to look like roads. (make some hills with extra icing.) Sprinkle some cookie crumbs or brown sugar on top to look like dirt or cinnamon sugar to look like sand. Add some small toy army vehicles and men. Or, order a theme cake from your local bakery or grocery store. BE SURE TO ORDER EARLY!
DON'T FORGET TO TAKE PLENTY OF PICTURES!
Have a GREAT Army Camoflauge Theme Birthday Party!
