Now Boarding: Aviation Themed Kids Party

National Aviation Day is a week away, so we put together these aviation party ideas to guarantee “frequent flier smiles”.

The Decór
We simplified our center table decór by limiting our color palette to red, white and blue pulled from our Airplane stickers. Instead of a traditional table, we used our vintage trunk to give the party a cool retro vibe. The globe gives you a dominant blue, while the adorable miniature stacked suitcases give you a bold pop of red.

Party Activities
It’s always a great idea to have a few fun party activities to keep the kids busy and entertained. Why not encourage their sense of adventure and creativity by repurposing toilet paper rolls into DIY airplanes. (Be sure adults are around during the craft to assist the kids with creating two slits for the popsicle stick.) And for more fun, we picked up some blank passport books and customized them for the party – rubber stamps and all!

Yummy Treats
The red & white straws and our sky blue plates are by Susty Party. They’re colorful and compostable. We added blue star stickers to the straws to tie into our theme. Sip in style!

After a day of activities, the kids will get a kick out of these crafty airplane treats. (As if kids needed one more reason to love an ice cream sandwich.) These were a huge hit at our home – 5 year old approved! You’ll love it because they’re inexpensive and easy peasy.BPFK Airplane Ice Cream Sandwich

Here’s a recap of all the ideas. Happy birthday adventures!

Construct-a-Party

If you’ve been keeping up with our Box Play for Kids blog, you know we love DIY parties. Having little ones means birthday party season is every season and we’re on a mission to show moms and dads some simple party ideas. So how about a construction party for your little builder? We set the scene with measuring tape, bright orange safety vests and a table full of Box Play for Kids construction-themed stickers. Let the kids make the table toppers with our buildings stickers and a few recycled paper towel and toilet paper rolls. Another tip: your favors can double as party decorations. We found appropriately colored orange clipboards to give away with some carpenter pencils and our tractor stickers. A “THANKS” belly band resembling on-site CAUTION tape and a toy dump truck holder bring the whole theme together. Like we always say…don’t be afraid to construct-a-party.

BPFK July 4 Table Shot Planning a patriotic party? We’ve put together a July 4th “inspired table” featuring – American flags, water balloons, fire chief hats, Dalmatians and our Fire Truck Party Pack stickers. Our recycling craft stickers are great as a party activity, table décor or party favors.

water balloons in hat

Kids love interactive elements so we included yellow fire chief hats, water balloons (caution: it might get a little wet) and fire trucks made out of repurposed milk cartons. Everyone can be chief at this party!dalmation cake stand

 

I’m not much of a baker so I took the easy way out and picked up store-bought treats. We created cupcake toppers using the Dalmatian from our fire truck stickers. It’s not a party unless you include cute, cuddly creatures.goodie bags

 

We put together goodie bags so the Red, White and Play can continue at home!Box Play for Kids July 4th Fire Truck Party

Below is a recap of all the fun.

 

Our stickers are proudly made in the USA.

Have a safe and happy Fourth of July!
