Feels for Birthday: Toy Story 3 Themed Party

If you’re a kid from the 90s (which you probably are because you’re here reading this), Toy Story might be a movie you grew up thinking fondly about, most of it might have had you chasing back on closed doors to peep if your toys did indeed take life after you left. In the sequels of Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3, however, the stories grew on us and, thematically, grew with us. Maybe what I’m trying to say is that, for old time sake, throw a feel good Toy Story party, and relieve being a child and celebrate growing up.


Make children food and put them inside Chinese takeout boxes

And you can also put adult food in Toy Story print boxes or Pizza Planet boxes; they go well either ways. The idea is always to connect your childhood to your present by combining fun and colorful to serious and slightly dull or over conscious.


Give toys for presents

They might be novelties for you guys are (budding?) adults but toys are still fun to get especially if they’ve been chosen for you. Draw lots among your friends to see who gives a gift to whom. Choose (or make) the gift that best describes a person whether through his current interest, his favorite stuff, or to crank up the ninja-cutting-meter, by what he wanted to be growing up. Note: especially bitter-sweet for those who did NOT become as they imagined they would.


Enjoy children’s parlor games

Like Pin the Tail on Bullseye, Musical Cranes, or Etch-charades! If you stretch your imagination far enough, you can come up with your own games that may be much closer the Toy Story realities. Give away slinkies, green plastic soldiers and bottle rocket—classic toys that never get old. Remember that scene where buzz “falls with style” after cutting loose of the rocket on the first Toy Story? Give away Buzz Lightyear foam gliders like this one and start chasing fun!

Finally, in the end, never forget whom you’re throwing such a fun party for—your friends. Say some words of encouragement and appreciation to all of them. Outside, we might all be growing Andys but deep down, we’re each other’s Woody and Buzz.

Organizing a Disney-themed Birthday Party

There will be no shortage of Disney party supplies because this an all-time favorite theme during birthdays for kids of all ages. Who doesn’t love Disney movies? This theme works like a charm and no doubt your kid’s party will be a success. Plus there are many Disney characters to choose from! You will never run out of ideas. Just pick out what your child likes the most and you’re all set.

Other than the party supplies, the food should be carefully planned as well. Children are hard to please when it comes to food, so it should not only taste good but infused with a creative twist. Try renaming your menu with quirky labels such as Elsa’s snowflake pretzels, Olaf’s summer Jell-O dip, and Anna’s Choco-loco brownies inspired by the movie Frozen.

Stretch your brain cells on crafting fun games and activities that could exhaust a bit the little ones so they could behave properly during chow time. Remember to stick to your current theme as the tykes would expect exciting movie-inspired games. The same formula on naming the snacks, turn the classical games such as “Simon says…” into “The Ice Queen says…”; “Pin the Nose on Olaf”; “Musical Chairs” into “Musical Thrones”; and “Pass the Parcel” into “Pass the Snowball” (a humungous “snowball”, of course).

Well, if you’re tired of, somehow, traditional games, you may try what we found online as enumerated below:

  • Snow Sled Race = the sled from a used carton box, a yarn string to pull the box, and a block of ice. A game best played outdoors. The challenge is to prevent the ice from sliding or slipping which is not an easy task.

  • Frozen Scavenger Hunt = the clues are based from the movie’s songs and (a personal suggestion) the finale is searching for Queen Elsa’s crown or gloves.

  • Assemble Olaf = remember the scene where Anna, Olaf and Kristoff jump off a cliff? There are two versions, 1) assemble an Olaf out of styro, sticks and a carro or 2) the yummy kind, out of marshmallows, pretzel sticks, and mini candies.

  • Do You Want a Build a Snowman = a summer version using rolls of cheap bathroom tissue rather than actual snow. It is like “mummifying” your partner. For the final touch, accessorize it with a scarf and a beanie and a carrot for a healthy treat.

Do you want something wilder? How about “Guess the Lyric” game? Children will surely go bonkers to sing-along and you will definitely have a musical-filled afternoon. Classy, isn’t? And, nope, this post is not all about Frozen. It is just a speck of your imagination…




But, who doesn’t love Olaf?! Chill out, guys! And keep the party ideas flowin’!

Plants Vs. Zombies Party Ideas

One thing that don’t mix well are kids and vegetables. The same mismatch might be true for making its way into kids’ party supplies. New Zealand is a country known for fresh and naturally grown produce that it kind of makes it a shame that vegetables are not as child celebrated as much as it is a vital part of a growing big and strong. Worry not though—one combination that works are vegetables and zombies and the success of Plants vs Zombies (PopCap Games) can attest to that.


It’s hip, it’s cool and it’s an idea that kids (and even adults) may love. A PvZ party might just open the door to revolutionizing fun and reintroducing vegetables in a new light. One such way is to…

Make a menu and name it PvZ style

Front and center of the game is its main playing characters, the Plants. They range from ornamental suppliers like the Sun Flower and Marigold, to the artilleries like Pea Shooter. Aside from the iconic Pea Shooter, the other vegetables that made the anti-zombie artillery are Potato Mine, Bonk Choy, Cabbage Pult, Bloom Shroom, Cob Cannon, and and tile turnip, not to mention the a number of other fruits in the form of bombs, shield, and weaponry. Play with them and make an awesome menu. Even tell the kids that they will get the veggies’ powers if they ate enough.

Turn video to Real Life Games

PvZ is a tower defense game where you have to protect your home by strategically placing plants to deter and defeat zombies. Within the game are other mini games like Whack a Zombie and Wall Nut Bowling. These ideas aren’t at all impossible in the real world—a cheap ball painted brown with goofy eyes can pass for a Wall Nut. And you don’t have to stick the app’s formula too! Pin the Tail on the Zombie, anyone?

Teach them to Plant

And you can also make this a main event. Teach your kid as well as his friends how to plant. Assist them on digging dirt. For that moment in their life, make it known to them that the plant is a living thing and that they are responsible for it. It could be an annual event where they grow as the plant grows. Not only are you giving your kid and his friends the gift of responsibility, they also learn that some things pay off if they give the time to wait and put in the right efforts.

PvZ is such a flexible theme that this list could go on to have more items, but what you have above are just some of the most memorable and probably adult entertaining activities that you can try on your kid’s next party. And also, don’t forget Crazy Dave’s taco. Crazy Dave loooves his taco.
