How to have a rocking good birthday party for kids
Get rocking on that party for your little rockstar! Your little Kid Rock is having a birthday
party and you can party like a rock star when you roll out the red carpets and invite
the Pop-a-razzi. As kids parties go, a rock star party is a party theme parents will
enjoy as much as the kids. Girls rock and boys rock too!
Here's how to throw a rock star party for kids:
- Rock out with inflatables. For kids parties, inflatable toys rock! You'll find rockstar
party supplies to include inflatable guitars and microphones. If you're short on
time to order your rockstar party supplies online, you can make your own guitars
from cardboard, or microphones from aluminum foil.
- Dress like a rock star. Make it a star-studded event: get out the studs, tie some
bandanna headbands, and give the kids some Rock N Roll tattoos.
- Hair bands. The neon hair attachments left, will turn anyone Hair Band rock
star. You get a dozen for just $8 and they're available with free shipping.
- Rock out to the eighties: Outfit the girls with fingerless gloves, left, or give
them the diva treatment sequin hats, also left.
- Throw them a guitar! The guitar mardi gras style beads, above, are sure
to get anyone into that Rock N Roll mood.
Wig out with more ideas on how to dress like a rockstar:
- Set the stage: Find the perfect venue for the party: perhaps a community center
with a stage. You need to set the stage so that kids can perform karaoke and
sing along to their favorite tunes, show off their air guitar moves, or dance the
moonwalk. You might otherwise build a platform in the backyard or use a deck
for the stage.
- Rock Band 3 Wii: Have the kids rock out with Rock Star Wii, which will also make a
great gift for the birthday kid. It comes highly rated. Check the ratings on
Amazon, right. This game is for teens.
Rock Star Invitations
The kids will feel like they got a VIP invitation with these rock star invitation ideas:
- Get in the back door. Instead of mailing invitations, you can cleverly hand deliver
them as a backstage pass clipped to a lanyard. Make the pass yourself or order
custom backstage pass invitations and have kids enter from your back door. See
also the custom concert tickets, left.
- Print your own Rock N. Roll CD Invitations: Look like a real rock star when you
invite guests to your rock star party by handing them a CD loaded with your
favorite songs! Right, Digital Bizaar, a vendor on ETSY.com will sell you the digital
artwork so half the work of designing these into invitations is done. Buy some
jewel cases and deliver invitations inside. The best part is you'll be sending
guests your favorite songs: you pick songs and you download them onto a CD.
