Animated Movie Theme Kids Birthday Party

Plan an easy children’s Disney Princess Party or Movie Theme Birthday Party. Fun party props and costumes for an Animated Movie Theme Party kids will love.

  • Whenever I am planning a birthday party for children, I put lot of thought into how to make it fun! If the kids aren’t able to take part in some really entertaining activities then they will just get bored. And that means the party is a flop! You should definitely consider activities that will allow the kids to move around and have fun.

  • I was asked by a friend to help plan a birthday party for her children, who just happen to be fraternal twins. I knew that both her son and daughter were super Disney movie fans. In fact, last Halloween they dressed up as Beauty and the Beast. And how cute they were!

  • I really wanted the twins birthday party to be a big hit for them and for their friends too. I suggested we plan an animated movie theme birthday party. The party invitations requested the party guests to come in costume, dressed as their favorite animated or live action movie character.

Party Props cardboard stand ups/standees/cutouts

  • Prior to the day of the birthday party, I ordered some colorful Disney character cardboard standups. And I was able to find cardboard standees of some of the boys children’s favorite movie characters like Captain America, Minions and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I was amazed at how many kids most loved movie characters are available in cardboard stand ups/standees/cutouts.
  • These party props are lots of fun for children’s birthday parties! Kids will absolutely love posing and taking selfies in their party costumes with their favorite Disney princess, the Little Mermaid, Jazmine, Elsa Frozen Snow Queen, Moana, Mulan, and many other characters.
  • I guarantee that having a few cardboard stand ups, standees and/or cardboard cutouts will make the birthday party so much more fun for the children.

  • I was also surprised to find a really cute Minion party prop decoration. It is a Minion Air Walker. It’s actually a weighted foil balloon. You just take it to a dollar store or party store and have them fill it with helium!
  • The kids at the birthday party had a great time playing with the minion balloon!

Family Tradition: You get a gift, you get a gift, you get a gift

“Now after all these years, the family tradition continues with my grandchildren. All my grandchildren can be sure that when grandma arrives, you get a gift, you get a gift, and you get a gift!”

Boys Birthday Party Gifts

My little boy was approaching his fifth birthday. I was planning his five year old birthday party and I was thinking of what birthday presents I would give him. I wasn’t rich by any means, but I was usually able to get him several birthday gifts, so between the gifts he received from me and from other family members, he always ended up with tons of great birthday gifts. Then it dawned on me that this year would be a little different. Different, because his little sister was beginning to understand a lot more about things like children’s birthdays and birthday presents. I realized that she would be disappointed to see her brother receiving lots of birthday presents and there she would sit with none. Well that bothered me. It bothered me to the point that what I decided to do was to buy her one “birthday” gift. Then on the day of my son’s birthday his little sister watched as he opened all his birthday presents. She was very well behaved, but as the last birthday gift was opened the disappointed look on her face was hard to miss.

That’s when I reached under the table and presented her with a lovely gift wrapped present. Her eyes grew wide and so did her smile as she tore the pretty Hello Kitty gift wrap from the box. She was thrilled with the pink hair My Little Pony and hugged it tightly and gave me a great big hug too. So that was the beginning of new family birthday tradition. Every year on each of my children’s birthday, the other child always received one “birthday” gift. My children came to believe that this was just the norm until they went to the birthday parties of friends and they did not receive a “birthday” present. Well, I can’t be responsible for everything! LOL! Now after all these years, the family tradition continues with my grandchildren. All my grandchildren can be sure that when grandma arrives, you get a gift, you get a gift, and you get a gift!
