The allure of magic is captivating, inspiring, and just right for a fabulous birthday party theme! Children totally get wrapped into the mystics of “how” things happen, so let’s go all out with our Magic Birthday Party!
A really whimsical invitation idea starts with cutting out a bunny shape and writing the event details on his belly. Next, cut out a top hat shape with a slit where the opening of the hat would be, just big enough to slide the rabbit in with his ears poking out. If that’s too involved, you can get some pre-made ones that will be just as wonderful.
Bestow your guests, as they arrive, with their own Top Hat! Everyone will be eager and excited to make their own magic wand out of a wooden dowel (2” long should be good), ribbon, markers, glue, and glitter (or you can also get magic wands here). Prior to the big affair, learn some simple magic tricks from books at the library. On the big day, regal your audience with a spectacular extravaganza! After the show, teach the children how to perform their own tricks! If you have the cash, you can also hire a professional magician to entertain. Before sending everyone home, delight them with party favors and magic scratch sheets.
For food, imagine rabbit and hat shaped sandwiches, bread shaped into wands, and a fruit/vegetable/cheese platter. Yummy and enchanting!
A Magic Birthday Party will open your child’s eyes to the wonders of illusion and mystery, so have fun!
