There are plenty of themes to choose from if you are planning your kid’s birthday party, but despite the range of choices out there, we all know how difficult it can be to choose – especially if you’ve got a picky camper! Besides, aren’t you (and your child) tired of the same old boring themes? But there may be one theme you haven’t explored yet – and the best thing about this theme is that it’s a unisex theme, which means it’s perfect whether you’ve got a girl or a boy. So forget Disney princess or superhero themes – this is the perfect theme for everyone, and it’s ideal for adults, too. So are you looking for a party theme for your child’s next birthday bash? Here’s why a carnival theme always works.
The basic facts
Generally speaking, when we say carnival theme, we also mean a circus or fairground or funfair theme – it’s all similar, anyway, so it’s interchangeable. No one can deny that we all have a love for the circus or carnival – after all, for most of us, it’s where some of our best memories were forged. And what’s not to love? It’s a whimsical, fun, nostalgic, and unexpected theme that will surely delight every one of your guests, kids and adults alike. The circus or carnival theme is great because it makes both the kids and the adults happy, and there is literally something for everyone, no matter their age.
The best parts about a circus or carnival-themed birthday party
- It offers a lot of fun activities
First of all, a circus or carnival-themed birthday bash will present your guests with a lot of options. Of course, it all depends on your budget – but the best part is, no matter how much budget you have, you can easily find an activity the kids will love. You can hire fairground or carnival rides (of course, this will also depend on the size of your party venue), but you can go for a few stalls and game booths which a fairground stall hire company can provide for you. Even a few rides, games, and some entertainment (such as a face painter or magician) will already come a long way to making your little one and their guests happy.
- It’s an ‘active’ theme
Nowadays, many parents are concerned because their kids are not spending enough time outdoors – instead, kids seem to be glued to their gadget screens! This is another reason why a circus or carnival theme works best – it lets your kids stay active, and they’re not even aware of it. It gives your kid a chance to stay away from their gadgets, even for just a day, and find joy in running around and playing at a bouncy castle, a mobile climbing wall, dodgem cars, and getting their face painted or getting ‘inked.’ Everyone can interact with each other, and it even improves social skills.
- It’s a flexible and fun theme
A circus or carnival theme is also innately flexible because you can choose whatever attractions and rides you want, depending on your budget. You can also choose a venue or hold your kid’s birthday party in your backyard, and you can go all out and make it a grand birthday party, or you can go the opposite route and make it an intimate, casual affair.
