Kid party theme ideas and photos by: Jennifer from Rosepine, LA
My soon to by 5 year old wanted a party theme with butterflies. We were on a limited budget. I racked my brain to come up with a neat party theme that did not cost a lot.
I started with the centerpieces. I made 100 butterflies from pixie sticks (candy) and used florist picks to arrange them in metal buckets (which I already had) and on a long Styrofoam piece. I used tissue paper as fillers.
I hung paper butterflies from the ceiling over every table.
We read 2 butterfly books and made butterflies from a coffee filter and pipe cleaner.
The game we played was ‘find the butterfly’. I put paper butterflies and caterpillars in white balloons (cocoons). The kids popped the balloons to release the butterflies.
I made 5 butterfly cakes. I used a round cake and cut it in half (turning the halves around and putting the outside together). A Twinkie was used for the body and licorice string was used for the antennas. I made coloring books and butterfly masks for each child.
