Candy-Themed Kids Party
This Candy-Themed Kids Party is perfect for a birthday, end-of-school bash, team party and more. These ideas are geared toward kids ages 6-10 and complete with sugary fun and sweet surprises.
Candy-Themed Kids Party Invitations
Sweetly invite your guests by either making your own invitations or purchasing some found online. One idea, if you make your own invitations, is to purchase large lollipops and attach tags with all the details of the event. Or you can simplify your event planning process by selecting one of the gorgeous kid’s party invitations available from Sendomatic!
Candy-Themed Kids Party Activities
Create areas where different games or activities can be played and tickets can be won that are redeemable at the candy shop.
Create one station called “The Lollipop Grove” where you throw a disc around paper-made lollipops placed in the ground. Think Ring Toss: Candy Edition. Each successful throw earns tickets and the farther away the lollipop, the more tickets it is worth.
The “Chocolate Swamp” is another option for an activity. Fill a kiddie pool full of packing peanuts (or, if you are daring, chocolate pudding) and hide index cards in the pool that say either “mini” or “king.” Have three index cards for each guest (so they can play three times) and each card they pick is for either a mini-sized candy bar or a king-sized candy bar.
The “Gumball Guess” is the easiest activity to put together for the party. Fill a large glass container full of gumballs (or another candy) and count the number of pieces. Then ask your guests to guess how many candy pieces are in the jar. The guest who guesses the closest to the number in the jar gets to take the whole lot home.
Another option to win more tickets is a bingo game where the cards are spelled C-A-N-D-Y. The kids played the game simultaneously as one person randomly pulled numbers out of a bowl. The first child with five numbers in a row and exclaims “candy” wins. You can play three rounds and distribute tickets to three winners.
A “Sweet Shots Photo Booth” is a great activity and easy to make. Ask a local furniture store that sells large appliances for a refrigerator box. Cut out an area for a door and a window and place a stool inside the booth. Set up a digital camera on a stand and take pictures of the kids in the booth. You can send the pictures in the thank you card you send each guest.
Finish the party with “The Candy Shop”. Create the ultimate sweet factory where every item (except the chocolate bars) is of equal value and the kids could redeem their tickets won during the different activities. They can also cash in their “mini” and “king” index cards for the appropriate size chocolate bars.
