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!

Saddle Up! It’s Time for a Kickin’ Cowboy Party.

Howdy! Our little friend Dominic is turning 4 and we’ve put together ideas for his cowboy themed birthday party.

We always like to create a focal point for our table design and build out. Our overall color palette for the party is blue and red. We used three of our Red Barn stickers that repurpose cereal boxes. We made horse cupcake toppers and placed them in the foreground to create a corral. I’m madly in love with this Mexican blanket on the diagonally – so vibrant and festive!

Each guest receives this customized party favor – cowboy hat, our Cow sticker wrapped in a blue bandana and a sheriff star. Yeehaw!

We always like to have at least one simple DIY craft activity for the kids and parents. This time, we made cowboy mustaches using popsicle sticks and black construction paper.

We made cowboy beans and corn on the cob for some yummy grub.

We recycled an Amazon box into horseshoes by cutting out the shapes and covering them with shiny silver duct tape – kid-friendly, light-weight and 100% fun!

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.
