Dumbo Birthday Party
- Elephants are known for their exceptional memories -- and, when you use these ideas to throw a Dumbo birthday party, your child will enjoy a celebration that's unforgettable! See More Parties
Planning the Party
Get your birthday boy or girl in the spotlight early by crafting invitations that resemble circus tickets or programs. Use the message, "It's a Dumbo Birthday Party Under the Big Top!" or "Clown Around with [Child's Name] at a Dumbo Birthday Party!" Decorate each invitation with drawings or stickers of circus animals, balloons and clowns.
Crafts, Activities & Favors
What do Dumbo and a preschooler have in common? Both of them love to blow bubbles! Kids can decorate one of Dumbo's Bubble Blowers, and then take the party outside for endless entertainment -- plus, this nifty device doubles as a party favor. If you need an indoor activity, think small. Timothy the mouse used a toothbrush to scrub Dumbo's ears, but toothbrushes also make nifty painting devices. Equip each guest with one, and send them home with Toothbrush Paintings to take center stage. When it's time for a game, make sure to set your round of Musical Chairs to upbeat circus music (just be prepared for some clowning around). For favors, send guests home with tiny trinkets inside striped popcorn bags.
What to Serve
The circus theme offers an abundance of food options for your guests. Hot dogs are traditional big-top fare, but you can also serve healthy options, like pinwheel wrap sandwiches that you can call Ferris Wheel Wraps, or Three Ring Pizzas -- basically, three pizzas with an array of healthy toppings. When it comes to preschoolers, finger foods are also a necessity, so try tiny nibbles inspired by Timothy the mouse, like this Cheese and Fruit Plate. As the centerpiece to your spread, make an array of Dumbo's Big Top Cupcakes to gather round a big-eared Plastic Elephant pal. And don't forget to include a Trumpeting Elephant Party Blower at each place setting!
