Best Kids’ Birthday Party Themes: 7 Great Ideas

Between theme units, school parties, and my 27 years of celebrations, I’ve learned the importance of a theme.  You want something that is fun and versatile but also easy and accessible.  When it comes to kids’ parties, themes can be tricky; you don’t want to back yourself into a corner by choosing something really specific because you’re likely to find that a lot of those really adorable DIY projects are expensive and time consuming. Here are my top 7 picks for kids birthday party themes as well as some specific ideas.
