Pick a Theme



Planning a kids’ party around arcade games and other fun activities is a great way to ensure that everyone has lots of fun! An arcade-themed party can include anything from life-sized chess pieces to arcade classics like Air Hockey and Pacman. Whether it’s their favorite cartoon character, animal, or video game, a party with a cohesive event is always more fun.

Celebrating a 5-year-old’s birthday in an arcade setting means games, games! The possibilities are endless, from hula hoops and ping pong balls to commercially made games for kids and more sophisticated party packages with state-of-the-art gaming consoles. Arcades provide infinitely engaging and fun games and offer an experience that can make parents’ lives far more effortless when planning. It is, therefore, no surprise that it has become a popular yet creative birthday idea to throw a grand bash in a video arcade setting. Not only will arcade-style games entertain kids, but it’s also a great activity for adults. Arcade games make for ultra-exciting competitions between friends and family. A great theme will make any party memorable but having an arcade-style party takes it one step further. After all, who doesn’t love the thrill of playing classic arcade games? So go ahead and create some bea


utiful memories by throwing theultimate birthday party your child will remember forever!



Keep Them Entertained

Coloring stations, video games, and crafts are always good options. Video games are

always a staple for entertaining the younger crowd. However, it’s essential to keep an eye on the time limits - especially if other activities and party guests are involved. For an additional twist, why consider introducing classic party games like “Simon Says” or “Duck Duck Goose”? Of course, you can always add some crafts and set up coloring stations. Getting the little ones involved in these activities makes for a more meaningful

celebration, ensuring everyone has a great time!




Don’t forget the food!

It can take a lot of work to plan an indoor birthday party. Still, the possibilities are endless with just a paper plate and some imagination. Birthday cake is still a must, but there’s nothing wrong with adding other kid-friendly snacks like mini pizzas or chicken nuggets.

Snacks give the little ones something to munch on while they’re having tons of fun. Whether setting up scavenger hunts, playing hot potato, or organizing a spoon race, your child’s guests will be enthralled when it comes to party favors. Don’t forget your paper plate - it’s essential in creating productive and entertaining parties!




Decorate the space


When planning your kid’s next party, don’t forget to decorate the space with festive touches like colorful streamers and balloons. Create a treasure hunt to kick it up a notch and give your guests an extra memorable experience! Write little clues on paper and hide them in key places around the venue. For an added sensory activity twist, let the treasure hunt reveal buckets of cotton balls for a painting activity attached. Or goodie bags at the end filled with fun surprises for all the little birthday revelers. This is the perfect game to get their creative juices flowing and lasting memories that keep them entertained even

after the party ends.







Have goodie bags ready



Spare no partygoers the delight of having fun party supplies in their goodie bags. Ensure you have enough party favors to fill their day with joy! Being prepared is vital when it comes to your party guests’ satisfaction. Party bags should be filled with delicious treasures such as candy, toys, and treats they can enjoy.

Depending on the party theme, you may want to include party-specific items. Such as plastic medals or fancy pencils if it’s an Olympic-style relay race or potato


snacks and drinking straws if you are hosting indoor activities. To ensure everyone leaves with a happy face, allow yourself enough prep time to fill your goodie bags with only the best party gifts!
