If you want to organize a butterfly birthday party, I have some great ideas to share with you. I have used them all for my daughter’s 5th anniversary. She invited her friends and the girls had a great time together. I hope you will find something inspiring for you and your kids!
1. Make your own, personalized butterfly birthday invitations
We have made invitations shaped as butterflies that you can open to see the actual invitation text. My daughter’s friends loved it!
You can decorate a room with different kinds of butterflies and have a butterfly table set , but the thing that the girls liked the most were the butterfly photos that we have projected on a big TV screen. I had prepared a big collection of butterfly photos, some of them were mine, some downloaded from the Internet.
3. Read a book about the butterflies and their life cycle
A simple book like this one, The Life Cycle of a Butterfly is a great idea to explain to kids how the butterflies make their transformation, how they migrate, what they eat, etc. We did a small quiz when reading the book and everyone participated!
I have printed some butterfly coloring pages to start with and then, the girls did a tissue paper butterflies. They loved it and took them home as a souvenir. If the birthday party is in autumn, you can also use different colorful leaves to make a butterfly craft.
First, each girl did her own butterfly wings, then they went to the garden to search for little plastic butterflies that we have hidden just before. They had so much fun: they were screaming, laughing and ‘flying’ around!
6. Food ideasHere are a few ideas of the butterfly shaped food: sandwich, frozen fruits. fruit skewers and muffins.
7. Birthday cake
You can’t have a great party without a butterfly birthday cake! I’ve made a moist sponge cake and decorated it with fruits. It was a great hit, both for kids and adults :)
