10 Tasteful Ideas for Kid’s Birthday Party Snacks

Whats’ the first thing that comes to mind when you think of children’s birthdays? Aside from presents, it’s usually room or venue decoration and making a cake. But, food is just as essential to the atmosphere, wouldn’t you agree? Yet, it usually slips one’s mind until the last minute, as parents get preoccupied with other party organization details.
However, preparing food at the eleventh hour can create stress before the supposedly joyful event and spoil it for you as the host. Let’s face it, youngsters are usually choosy eaters. This means taking into account everyone’s taste in order to prevent food hassles. After all, isn’t the point of the party to have kids return home tired from playing with their tummies full of delicious food?
For this reason we’ve compiled a carefully chosen kids birthday party food ideas list you’ll find below. In this way, you’ll have plenty of suggestions to juggle in your mind before deciding on the most suitable dishes. Read on and thank us later!

Pretzel rods

Children are full of energy, and their birthday parties usually mean them swarming all around the room. It’s nearly impossible to get all of them to sit down and have a meal. Worry not, because this is where birthday party snacks come in to save the day!
Ideally, you’ll want something they can reach for and chew on the go. First on the list are pretzel wards, as there are countless ways to decorate them according to the party theme. You can choose between a salty version which is perfectly dippable in delicious sauces, or go with the sweet ones for which you’ll need candy melts of different colors. For additional decoration, you can include sprinkles over the candy coating and pack them all in festive boxes or bags. In need of some inspo? Here are some of the most popular ones to stimulate your creativity:

  • Harry Potter chocolate magic pretzel wands – whether you decide to make the wizard wands or house-themed ones, there’s plenty of options to choose from this famous fandom
  • Unicorn horn pretzel rods – add some unicorn sprinkles and you’ll have the girls lining up for the second serving!
  • Colorful rainbow pretzel rods – with sprinkles of all colors you can make a pretzel rod turn magical in an instant!
  • Disney’s Frozen pretzel rods – blue candy melt and some snowy edible sprinkles is all you need for this theme. These ones are among the most suitable kids party snack ideas if you’re celebrating during the winter months.
  • Minion chocolate pretzel wands – googly candy eyes and yellow candy color (white chocolate might be a good option here!) and you’re all set!

Veggie cups

Snacks don’t all have to be unhealthy, as there are plenty of ways to make vegetables fun. Wait, do you still believe in the common misconception that kids dislike vegetables? Then you haven’t tried arranging them in a colorful and creative way! In fact, you’d be amazed that they can be turned into some of the best kid party food. Not only are they high in vitamins, but they are perfect appetizers too. With some veggie dip thrown into the mix, you might even trick a veggie hater to change their mind.

veggie sandwiches

So, which vegetables do you pick? For the sake of arrangement, it’s best you choose the ones that can be cut into sticks or put on skewers. Try to include a mix of at least for different vegetables per cup and combine contrasting colors. To make it even more appealing, you can add some cheese in as well. Here’s an idea – cherry tomatoes and grilled cheese is an excellent snack to nibble on during a game break. In the same way you can make Greek salad skewers, or simply pair carrots, cucumbers, bell peppers and slice them lenghtwise.
Now doesn’t this sound like the healthiest and most colorful component of your party menu? Plus, they’re easy to make and can be prepared a few days in advance.

Frozen fruit yogurt bites

Looking to find summertime fun food for a kid’s birthday party at home? These froyo fruit cups are just about the perfect snack for the hot weather months! A combination of sweet and healthy is exactly what you need for the kids to be flocking for more of these tasty cups. Best thing about them is their compact size – it turns them into great grab-n-go treats.

Blueberry Cheesecake

Making them is hostess-friendly as well. You can do it either with homemade or store-bought phyllo crust shells, or take the easier route and simply put yogurt in a muffin tin. Once you have the yogurt base, arrange a fruit mix on top, freeze it and, voila, they’re done in three hours tops!
When it comes to the best combinations of fruit to customize them with, it all comes down to seasonal fruits. Some of the most yummy ideas include a berry mix, pineapple & mango or lemon and & lime. To spice it up, drizzle in a bit of honey into the greek yogurt or experiment with different flavored ones (vanilla or strawberry yogurt, for example).

Mini pizzas

Moving on to main dishes, mini pizzas are the ultimate classic among finger foods for birthday parties. Heck, we bet you’ll decode those picky eaters’ appetites with a plate of this well-known meal. It’s kid-friendly and adults adore it as well, so it’s a win-win situation in that department. They’re also suitable for the parties in playhouses, as they are easy to snatch on the go.
Decide on the toppings, buy a package or two of pizza dough as well as shredded mozzarella cheese and they can be done in less than half an hour.

Mini pizzas with ham, olives, cheese and tomato

A fun-shaped cookie cutter can help create heart-shaped or triangular slices, making them even more interesting.
Another guarantee that will have the kids attacking the pizza buffet is by making mini calzones. All it takes is just one additional step – folding the dough over the toppings and tucking in the edges. Before you know it, you’ve transformed mini pizzas into calzone bites and they’re ready to go into the oven!

Taco platter

Who’s up for some taco fiesta? Well, the kids certainly always are! To cater to kids’ picky tastes, put a twist to the pre-made tacos and make a taco buffet instead. This way, you’ll create a rich platter of endless possibilities and give kids a chance to build their own taco. Sound fun, doesn’t it?

Taco platter with lime

There’s only one downside you should be aware of, and that is the potential mess this method can cause. But, hey, birthday parties don’t happen every day, so they might as well enjoy constructing their dish. When it comes to ingredients, divide them into three parts – taco fillings, meat and toppings. You can also include some seasoning for the kids that like it.
Tacos can also be an excellent option when it comes to toddler birthday party foods. Make mini taco bites, or, even better, use different ingredients to create funny faces on tortillas. Get your kids to help you out and you’re both bound to have a few laughs in the process.

Mini sandwiches

Another finger food classic which is a certified crowd favorite. Once the kids energy levels start flagging, they’ll line up in front of the food buffet in need of a boost. Their happiness when they detect sandwiches on the menu will yet again confirm they’re the best kid party food.

Variety of mini sandwiches with cream cheese, vegetables and salami. Sandwiches with cheese, cucumber, radish, tomatoes, salami, thyme, lemon zest on a light background, top view.

Ingredient options are numerous and with some ketchup, mayo and kids’ favorite sandwich sauce you’ll provide a tasty meal. They will lessen the hassle of making other complicated food ideas and clear your time schedule for other birthday-related tasks. Just like with tacos, you can lay out different fillings for them to make their own sandwiches. Whether it’s red pesto, cheese, crunchy veggies or smoky bacon, you’ll provide each kid the freedom of choosing the ingredients.
They will be even tastier if you’ve got a panini press or a sandwich toaster, plus you’ll have them warm when it’s meal time. Open bread slices work as well, and pitta bread is a great option too.

Crispy chicken strips

Who can resist crunchy fried chicken fingers paired with a delicious sauce? But, hey, don’t mix them up with the greasy, deep-fried chicken usually served in restaurants! Home -baked olive oil ones are not only tastier, but much healthier as well. Make sure to buy unprocessed chicken meat and don’t forget the breadcrumbs which give this dish a lovely crispy texture.

Crispy chicken strips

In order to spice them up, you can add some side dishes to go with them as well. The classic and most popular ones are, of course, fries. If you wish to be more creative, pasta salads are an excellent addition too. We bet the combination will have kids asking for seconds!

Chocolate doughnuts

It’s a well-known fact that every kid has a sweet tooth – none of them will turn down a cream-filled doughnut! If you don’t own a deep fryer, don’t worry, as baked doughnuts are a thing too. In fact, they are not much different than making muffins or cupcakes.

chocolate donuts

Of course, you’ll want to decorate them in a special way for the birthday party. The easiest way is to fold in the rainbow sprinkles in the flour mixture before transfering into the donut pan.
When it comes to glazing, you can have all the fun in the world with them. Some examples are writing the birthday number, your kid’s name or a simple fun message like “Bite me”. You can even transform the doughnuts into different fruit – Google away for all sorts of ideas. No matter what theme you land on, they’ll surely turn out to be great kid birthday party treats!

Oreo pops

Nowadays, cake pops seem to be an indispensable part of any birthday party. They exploded in popularity back in 2010 and have since then been acknowledged as cake-on-a-stick. But, what if we told you that there is an easy-to-do, no bake version? Even better, right? Well, all you’ll need is chocolate melts, popsicle sticks, sprinkles and a package of Oreo’s.

white chocolate pops

Once they’re done they can be put in the freezer, so it’s another thing you can prepare ahead of time. These tiny treats on a stick can help you unleash your creativity when it comes to decorating them. Again, just like with the doughnuts, the combinations are endless, it’s all about the birthday boy’s or girl’s wishes!

Colorful whoopie pies

Why have a normal chocolate cake, when you can have a sandwiched one instead? It is said they got their name when kids would exclaim “Whoopie!” whenever they saw them prepared. That should be a guarantee enough that they fit in this list of best kid party food! It’s traditionally filled with marshmallow fluff, but various kinds of buttercream will do as well.

Colorful whoopie pies

Use coloring to make them more festive-looking and you’ll have a killer treat to impress the kiddos with. These soft and creamy goodies will certainly fit in with any type of party buffet. The moist cookies will melt in everyone’s mouth and have them begging for more!

80 Astonishing Birthday Party Decorations for Kids

There is clapping in the castle, there is clapping all around
There is clapping in the castle, mirth and merriment abound!
It is a well-known fact that children are bigger party animals than adults, therefore clapping, mirth and merriment are going to happen for sure. What you need is to build a castle. How are you going to build a castle? By picking up an awesome kids’ birthday party decoration!
In the following lines, this article is going to provide you with the best ideas for birthday decorations for kids. Some of them are going to be simple birthday decorations with balloons while some might require more time, creativity, and hard work.

Centerpieces for kids parties

The tables at kids’ birthday parties are castle towers and centerpieces – flags that stand at the top of every medieval castle, giving it a specific personal touch. Therefore, centerpieces for kids parties require special attention. Always have in mind that centerpieces, as probably the most visible part of the decoration, always need to be in harmony and related to child party themes. Therefore, it is good to always choose a theme first before moving to the decoration. Here are some of our suggestions:

Classic centerpieces

No, no no no, stick to the stuff you know, if you wanna be cool, follow the one simple rule don’t mess with the flow, no, no – stick to the status quo! Although this famous High school musical song is giving us advice that was (spoiler alert) at the end of the movie proven wrong, it might be quite useful when we talk about children’s party decoration. Even the greatest artists had creative blockades throughout their life, so don’t be sad if you are at one at this very moment. That does not mean that your blockade will ruin your child’s special day. Quite an opposite, just stick to the classics and the result will be perfect! Here are our suggestions:

All you have to do is to follow your child’s pop culture interests (a.k.a his/her favorite singers, actors, cartoons, movies, tv shows, etc.) and notice what are his/her favorites.

If your child is into hiking, camping, swimming, diving, or other nature/outdoor stuff, these centerpieces will be the ideal solution as well. Additionally, we will provide you here with some sports and animal-related centerpiece ideas as well. If you choose any of these, you may even think of a theme party as well, to fit the centerpiece. Here are the suggestions:

  • Make-up/spa centerpiece
  • Magic Honeycomb centerpiece
  • Art Party centerpiece
  • Construction and transportation centerpiece

Kids parties table decoration

After you pick up the centerpiece, it is time to finish the other table decoration. In the same way that the centerpiece has to match with the kids party theme, the table decoration has to match with the centerpiece. After all, you will not see the Chinese flag at a medieval English castle.
Let’s start with the basic and obligatory table items:

  • Knives, forks, and spoons
  • Plates (for both food and cake)
  • Cups
  • Napkins
  • Serving Dishes
  • Serving Utensils
  • Tablecloths
  • Toothpicks
  • Runners
  • Cake cutter

And here are some additional things, that are not obligatory but could give a nice impression:

  • Paper straws (come in a variety of size and shape; you might personalize them by adding your child’s photography, favorite cartoon character, or animal to its top, also there are a variety of DIY options)
  • Table standing ballons
  • Napkin holders
  • Toothpick holder
  • Ashtray (for the adults’ tables, if the venue allows smoking)
  • Candles (although there is natural light, this decoration item may give a sense of warmth and calmness
  • Candleholders (for more elegant and glamorous themes)
  • Incense (oil or sticks; be aware, some guests might not like it; also it has to go with the theme)
  • Incense holders
  • Food décor (cake pops, jelly jars, and similar)
  • Flowers
  • Flower vase
  • Plants
  • Photographies
  • Motivational quotes (and blackboard/paper to write it on; they may even be written in small letters and put under napkin as a special message to each guest)

Other decoration ideas

Now let’s put a final piece into the puzzle. As long as it follows a party theme, you may add any additional decoration that you like. Here are some of the ideas:

  • Ballons: in the ABC of party decoration, balloons always come at A. They are on every invitation card, party instruction manual, every party scene in the movies…the list may go on forever. You may be creative and make some DIY balloons, you may order the personalized one, or, in case that creativity is currently not on your side, just order classical balloons in different colors. With them, you can’t go wrong
  • Ballon weights: not necessary, but may give additional favor to the decoration.
  • Streamers: the ideal way to make fun atmosphere “more materialized”
  • Birthday banner: every birthday is a chance for the celebrant to be the star of the day. And how to make it more obvious than with a birthday banner that will shine bright like a diamond and strong as a neon ray. Apart from the classical “happy birthday” banner, you may personalize it by adding the celebrant’s name or anything else personally related to him/her.
  • Yard sign: do not limit yourself only to birthday banner – make message global!
  • Birthday Milestone Poster: apart from global, shiny and, strong, party banner may be personal as well. With a Milestone poster, you may introduce guests better to the celebrant and allow them to guess what might happen during the party.
  • Scene setters: photography became an essential part of every celebration, especially with the fast development of social networks. Therefore, create a corner where the celebrant, his/her friends, parents, and other guests will be able to make the best memories. Like in previous items, personalize it by the tastes of the celebrant.
  • Hanging decoration: may include anything from the disco ball to piñata. Paper lanterns are also always a good choice.
  • Cake candles, topper, and figurines: make them similar or same to the centerpiece, especially if the theme is very specific
  • Inflatable houses: easy to use and create a lot of fun. Especially recommendable for younger children.
  • Blowouts and other noisemakers: according to ancient Chinese belief, the presence of a lot of sounds at every celebration will cast the evil luck out; regardless if you believe in it or not, it will make fun! And fun is the biggest luck!
  • Party hats: you may order them or you may have a make-your-own party hat if guests are into creativity and art.
  • Birthday confetti: you don’t need a fairy to have some magic dust in the air…. or maybe the magic dust in the air will make a fairy come and fulfill all celebrant’s wishes.
  • Paint Splats: one of the best-known facts about kids is that nothing is sweeter to them than to make a mess. Since that kind of pleasure isn’t permittable every day, there is nothing wrong to have some fun at the birthday party. Not just that it will enable them to enjoy making a mess, but they will, as many psychologists suggest, develop creativity and support emotional growth. So, give it a chance!

Once upon a time, there was a castle
And in this castle lived a King and Queen
And it came to pass, they were both were blessed
By one little blue-eyed prince/princess
With the softest golden curls, you’ve ever seen.

Indeed, they did, indeed they had a beautiful little angel and indeed it was the beautiful castle! And what is the next step towards this fairytale happy ending? An awesome party! After choosing the theme and decoration, there are plenty of steps that you have to take afterward! But before moving to the following steps, here are some additional advice that you should have in mind while creating, planning, and organizing birthday party decoration:

  • Budget and time management! This is something essential for every successful event! Be realistic above both time and money and do not ever push yourself more than you can handle! The purpose of every celebration is to be transformed after its ending into a beautiful memory and not intro trauma and/or repentance!
  • Follow the decoration-organization pyramid that is presented in this article. At the top of the pyramid, there is a party theme. After that, there is a centerpiece as the most visible symbol of the theme. Later, there is table decoration and finally, there is another decoration.
  • Include your child in the organization process! First, think of its wishes and tastes. It is his/her special day after all and the decoration is always better when it has at least one small personal touch! Second, try to include him/her in an organization process (of course, according to his/her age). Apart from giving him/her a personalized beautiful day, direct participation of the child will also develop a sense of responsibility and plant a seed of organizational skills! And organization skills are nowadays absolutely must-have in every part of everyday life!
  • Last but not the least, have fun! It is not only his/her special day, but it is also yours. In every fairytale, King and Queen are important protagonists as much as prince/princess! With good luck and some faith, a fairy godmother shall come as well!

We wish you and your child all the best! May the following years be as awesome as the party decoration that we are sure that you will create! Good luck and have fun! Cheers!
