Finding and planning the perfect ideas for the birthday party girl can sometimes prove a little challenging, so we've come up with them for you!
Thinking about what themes are suitable, rustling up some party games that everyone will enjoy, sorting the best birthday food and generally ensuring that the birthday girl has a super fun party are just some exciting factors!
Whether your little girl is into Disney and crafts or sports and food - we've got birthday party ideas for every 10th birthday girl on their special day.
On birthdays we wear pink… to have an awesome kid's pink party, encourage all of your party guests to wear pink and munch on some delicious pink food - we’re talking pink yoghurt, strawberries, pink wafers, cupcakes, the lot! And don’t forget to wash it down with some pink drink such as cranberry juice or blackcurrant squash. Plus, you could even play some traditional games with a pink twist. For example, you could hide various pink objects around the party venue and have your very own scavenger hunt - first to find three objects wins!
Mermaid and Unicorn Party
Who says 10-year-old girls are too old to use a little imagination? Grab some arts and crafts supplies and have your very own kids mythical creatures birthday party! Don your glitteriest clothes, sparkliest kicks and don’t forget your magical powers. Why not make your very own unicorn horns - all you need is card, felt tips, elastic and your imagination! Cut your card into strips approx 15cm long, draw on your unicorn horn and decorate as you wish. Then either tape or staple (using an adult's help) a small piece of elastic to either side of the card so that it fits around your head - voila!
Ice Cream Party
One of our personal fave girls birthday party ideas is a kids ice-cream party - especially as the weather heats up for the summer! How about setting up your own ice-cream parlour by simply laying out a whole range of toppings such as sauces, fresh fruit, sweet treats and of course, ice cream? Or if you're feeling super adventurous, why not make your own ice-cream? A super simple and fun method is the salt, ice and milk recipe - you’ll have melt-in-the-mouth ice-cream in no time!
Let’s get crafting this 10th birthday! Everyone loves a little bit of bling and it’s even better when you get to make and design your own. To host your very own kids jewellery birthday party, grab some elastic and beads of your choosing, then get to work. You could even get super creative by painting pasta or cereal and adding them to your bracelets - in the name of fashion, anything goes. You could even make friendship bracelets for each other and perhaps all the party guests could team up and make one extra special bracelet for the birthday girl!
Everyone deserves a little pampering once in a while, especially on your birthday! Get together with your closest girlies and have your very own kids spa birthday party. Whack on some relaxing spa music to get you in the zone and grab your nail polishes - if you’re lucky maybe you can get your siblings involved in the party fun and ask them to pour you some non-alcoholic fizz (what more could a 10-year-old birthday girl want?) If you’re feeling super creative, why not have a go at making your own bath bombs, using bicarbonate of soda, citric acid and essential oils?
Dress code: fluffy pyjamas and pretty nighties! Why not celebrate entering double digits with a massive pyjama slumber party? Grab the popcorn, blankets and pillows and whack on your favourite movie. Not to mention the kid's party games - just no pillow fights, please! How about creating your very own selfie wall to remember the epic night long after the birthday party has ended? All you need is a camera, a tripod and a timer, and of course, your best poses!
Arrrgh! Don your bandanas and eye patches and get ready for an unforgettable kids pirate birthday party. Of course, no pirate party is complete without a treasure hunt so grab some treasure (you could use some jewellery, gold chocolate coins or even little clues that reveal the birthday girl’s present!). Plus, you could use slices of orange to make ships and cucumber sticks to make wooden planks to really put you in the swashbuckling mood!
Whether you’re lucky enough to have a garden or reap the benefits of having a local park, a picnic themed birthday party is always a good idea. Grab your gingham blankets, picnic baskets and board games and take to the great outdoors! Perfect picnic snacks include finger sandwiches, strawberries and cream and who can resist an ice-lolly (lollies are super simple and fun to make at home and often taste better than shop-bought ones because you can fill them with your own array of toppings!). Don’t forget games such as Jenga and twister - classic games that are bound to bring the fun to any kids 10th birthday party!
Let’s make some noise and sing along to some absolute classics this 10th birthday. Grab some glow sticks, sunglasses and maybe even some inflatable guitars and host your very own kids karaoke birthday party. Whether you’ve got a smart TV that you can watch Youtube karaoke videos on and sing along to or you prefer to do it the old fashioned way and print off the lyrics of your fave songs, one thing is for sure, it’ll be a super fun, rocking birthday party.
Become princesses for the day! Don your glad rags, dine on some delicious afternoon tea and have a very royal kids birthday party. Start by designing and making your very own tiaras - use gems, glitter and your imaginations to come up with a regal and shimmering tiara fit for a queen! Then munch on some afternoon tea - scones with jam and cream, finger sandwiches and of course some royal sweet treats! Plus, every princess deserves a little pampering so why not do some nail painting and hair braiding whilst you’re at it.
Ready, set, game, match! Who said that girl birthday parties can’t be sporty? Whether your birthday girl is into swimming, football, cheerleading, tennis or anything between, hosting your very own sports party is bound to be super fun and unique. Ensure to have plenty of water on hand and, of course, some sweet treats to refuel!
Abracadabra! As one of our fave party themes around, hosting a kids magic party is always bound to be a hit. Whether you hire a magician to show off some seriously impressive magic skills or rustle up your own magical workshop, kids are bound to leave feeling spellbound. Don't forget your wands!
