50 Nature-Inspired Kid's Birthday Parties

50 Nature-Inspired Kid's Birthday Parties

Confession, I am really into birthdays. For me it's a month-long event that kicks off with me saying to myself in the mirror, "Treat yourself!" That being said, birthdays don't need to be elaborate or over the top (my daughter's first was a low-key affair at our local nature center) in order to be memorable or fun. I tend towards natural parties with simpler activities that encourage everyone to really get their hands dirty, but every child and situation is different.

The kids birthday ideas, themes and recipes below are not intended to be done en-masse. Big kudos to those parents who have put these together, but let's face it most of us are lucky enough to spell our child's name correctly on the cake (just kidding, well sort of, I am eight months pregnant at the time of this post so mistakes have been made!). This list is intended to be more of a buffet - just pick and choose, tweak and change as you like to make the celebration your own. Because the warmer weather is coming, most of these parties include an outdoor element. I hope you find some inspiration for the big day!

  • Great Ideas here! Another is Wild Kratts – the PBS show featuring the Kratt brothers. Did this for my son’s 6th. Used ideas from MomEndeavors.com and PBS.org, and brought in a presenter with live animals for the kids to interact with! (snakes, tarantula, hedgehog, etc.) …Very memorable!
