Children’s Birthday Party Themes – Activities and Ideas for a Children’s Birthday

There are so many kids birthday party themes to choose from that it can seem overwhelming at times. The first step in successfully planning a party is narrowing down your options and choosing a theme.

Here is a fun and unique theme idea to inspire you. It is based on the popular television show Where is Carmen San Diego in the world? This kids birthday party idea is suitable for children ages 5-8.

Organize a party for your children based on the program “Where in the world is Carmen San Diego”. It’s a fun and easy house party and you won’t have to drive the kids around town or compete for space somewhere else like Chucky Cheese.

Activity and game ideas:
Adults play the different characters in the show. eg: the boss, and the different villains, and Carmen San Diego herself. This serves two purposes, not only does it reduce the cost of hiring actors, but it gives children the idea that they are really transported into the stories.

It makes the children feel as if they are not surrounded by their parents and, in turn, gives you a way to create a festive atmosphere without losing sight of the children.

The different areas of the house and backyard are set up like different areas around the world, eg Paris, China, Spain. There are clues, puzzles and games installed at the different stations that the children have to solve.

After the children solve the puzzles, they receive another clue to take them to the next station and also a small prize. in the end, all the clues lead the kids to find out where Carmen San Diego is and how she committed the “crime”.

A fun way to end the party is to have the final track lead to the dining room where cake and gifts are waiting for the kids.

The party is inexpensive and great fun for kids and allows you to create a personalized party for your children in the comfort of your own home. For the party, all you need to do is familiarize yourself with the series, and then copy the costumes and plot. You don’t even need to go out and shop for costumes, you probably already have everything you need hanging in your closet!

Other than that, you may have to go to a party supply store and grab streamers and other things to mimic the different locations, but that’s about it! It’s one of the great kids birthday party themes for parents on a budget! Give it a twist on your next birthday.
