SpongeBob SquarePants Birthday Party

If your child is crazy for the character who lives in a pineapple under the sea, throw a SpongeBob SquarePants birthday party! Read on for our ideas on creating a perfect SpongeBob SquarePants birthday party with ideas on decorations, favors, games, invitations and more.

Who is SpongeBob Square Pants?

Deep down in the Pacific Ocean in the subterranean city of Bikini Bottom lives a square yellow sea sponge named SpongeBob Squarepants. SpongeBob lives in a pineapple with his pet snail, Gary, loves his job as a fry cook at the Krusty Krab, and has a knack for getting into all kinds of trouble without really trying. When he's not getting on the nerves of his cranky next door neighbor Squidward, SpongeBob can usually be found smack in the middle of all sorts of strange situations with his best buddy, the simple yet lovable starfish, Patrick, or his thrill-seeking surfer-girl squirrel pal, Sandy Cheeks. In Bikini Bottom, fish walk, blowing bubbles is art, and the tastiest undersea treat is a deep-fried Krabby Patty Burger. Dive in and soak it all up with SpongeBob! (SpongeBob Square Pants TV Promo)

Party Essentials

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 as school, unless every single child is invited!!!!! Skip the jumpies and the pony rides.

What Do I Need For The Party?

For a great kids SpongeBob Square Pants 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.
  • Great SpongeBob theme paper goods
  • A cluster or two of latex balloons mixed with some fabulous Mylar SpongeBob and/or animal shaped balloons (be especially careful of latex balloons if you have very young children present)
  • A fun sea theme centerpiece
  • For the food – keep it simple: serve either popcorn shrimp or hot dog octopus and cheesy shells, and fruit cut into sea animal shapes, drink ocean water out of fish straws, and for dessert serve a beautifully decorated SpongeBob birthday cake/ cupcakes and lots and lots of candy fish.
  • Four activities: a “doing” activity such as running through a SpongeBob sprinkler, waterslide, bubble machine, Bikini Bottom scavenger hunt or series of SpongeBob outdoor activity games, a craft activity such as SpongeBob and friends mask/costume making followed by a runway show or a sand art project, and a game activity like, “crab walk races or octopus tag, and to end the party, a chance to break the pinata. As the kids get older, the same activities work just make them more complex, and add a competitive/team component.

Amazon makes it extremely easy to create a fabulous SpongeBob Square Pants party with lots of SpongeBob Square Pants Party in a Boxes from which to choose .  Truthfully, all the rest of this post is the equivalent of adding lots and lots of whip cream to your ice cream sundae.

DIY Party Ideas

  • Cut the shape of SpongeBob SquarePants, a starfish or pineapple from card stock paper.
  • Cut a yellow sponge in half and glue it on white cardstock. Add googly eyes and draw on a face to create SpongeBob.
  • Wash and dry old soda bottles, write your party details on a slip of paper, roll it up, and slide it inside. Make sure the paper is rolled tightly and secured so it will easily slip out of the bottle when your guests receive it. If you don’t want to make your own, purchase one of the invitations in a bottle.
  • Wash and dry seashells thoroughly and write your party details on the back of the shells. Send them in heavily padded envelopes, or hand-deliver them to your guests.
