Peppa Pig is all the rage and rightfully so. It is hard not to be glued to the television as this adorable little girl pig, her family, and other animal friends, all bearing human characteristics, go about their everyday activities. Just like the boys and girls watching these 5 minute episodes, they attend playgroup, go swimming, visit relatives, go to the playground and ride bicycles. All the while, the narrator of the series reinforces the action and humor, saying things like “Oh, dear” when something unfortunate happens (such as George starts crying) or “Look out!” when a character is doing something unsafe (such as Peppa riding her bicycle without looking where she's going). If you have not yet caught an episode, just ask your son or daughter what channel to watch!
Party Idea Pros has an “old fashion” approach to kids’ parties. We say keep them small, keep them short, and keep them simple. We love hula hoops, beach balls, crayons, washable markers, glue sticks, and musical instruments. Generally, the number of guest should equal the age of the birthday child, but don’t obsess if you are a few over or under — it is not worth the hurt feelings for an extra child or even two. Never, ever deliver invitations at school, unless every single child is invited!!!!! Skip the jumpies and the pony rides.
For a great kids Peppa Pig birthday party there are only a few essentials
A great invitation — even before the party begins invitations create a sense of anticipation. Think of all the time your own child spends looking at those invitations on your refrigerator. Most of the featured invitations are digital file printable invitations but the custom shaped invitation will be delivered to your door.
Great Peppa Pig theme paper goods
For the centerpiece all you need is a few Peppa Pig plush toys, a cluster or two of latex balloons mixed with some fun Peppa Pig shaped balloons (be especially careful of latex balloons if you have very young children present), and maybe just a add one of the many adorable handmade Peppa Pig party hats.
Loving these inexpensive printable decorations!
For the food – keep it simple: cut sandwiches and fruit and any thing else you can think of into Peppa Pig shapes. Be sure to serve mud pies since Peppa pig loves to play in the mud. Plus, if you are feeling ambitious, there are some wonderful Peppa Pig fondant sets available.
Four Peppa Pig Party Activities
- A “doing” activity such as a home “Find the Plush Peppa Pig” (Hide & Seek)
- A craft activity such as playing with Peppa Pig Space Rocket Dough,
- A game activity like, “Peppa Pig in the Middle or “Peppa Pig Tug of War”
- And to end the party, a chance to break the Peppa Pig pinata.
As the kids get older, the same activities work — just make them more complex, and add a competitive/team component.
Just one last thought >> kids love dressing up so consider surprising the birthday boy or girl with a fun pig costume or even a special Peppa Pig Outfit.
