Celebrate the spring season with your little ones using our easy and inexpensive theme party ideas. The kids theme party ideas below draw from the fabled saying "March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb" for a spring-inspired soiree that's easy to orchestrate and on a budget.
Plan to have a few of your children's friends over on a day the weather looks promising. Set up an outdoor space - head to the park if you don't have a yard - with a picnic-style eat in and enjoy the day outside.
After a long winter, the kids will be excited to get outdoors and you will, too. Pay attention to menu choices, activity ideas and color when styling your theme party. So long as you work with oranges and yellows for the lion side of things, and whites and blacks for the lamb part, the task of decorating will be an easy one.
As you enjoy the day outside, crafting lion and lamb masks, slurping up creamsicle milkshakes and eating lions mane pasta and little lamb cupcakes, share a few tid-bits with your children about the spring season. Encourage them to take advantage of the nice weather as often as they can!
