Birthday Party Theme Ideas for 5-to 6-Year-Olds

Young at Art

Inspire your young artists with a party that brings out their creativity and allows them to have fun with a variety of art-related activities. This party works well indoors or out, though do take precautions to cover furniture if you have young artists in your home. Be sure to note on the invitation that this is an art party, so that parents will dress party guests accordingly.

Game: Art Stations. Set up three stations that can handle two or three kids at a time. Some suggestions: finger painting station, clay station, poster painting stations. Try to have an adult at each station to help out. Have the kids visit each station, enjoy the activity and then after 10 to 15 minutes or so, rotate to the next.

Party favor: Edible jewelry or magnets, to hang new creations on the fridge.
