Firefighter Birthday Party – Invitations

Your birthday party invitations could start with phrases such as:

  • It’s a {Age Number}-Alarm Birthday Party! {Child’s Name} is having a party & you’re invited!
  • Sound the Alarm!
  • Your Official Invitation to Junior Firefighter Training Camp!

If guests will be participating in a mini training camp, be sure to include notes on the invitation for guests dress in training camp appropriate gear (dresses & flip flops may not hold up well when crawling through obstacles!).

Firefighter Birthday Party – Decorations

The color scheme for your firefighter birthday party could include red, black, white and gold. A fun color scheme would be white with black polka dots – the same colors as a firefighters best friend…the dalmatian!

Decorations could include balloons, special banners, fire trucks, fire hydrants, fire truck pinata, plastic fire hats, wall decals and a special photo area to take firefighter training camp pictures. These pictures are a great addition for the thank you cards.

Firefighter Birthday Party – Activities

A fun idea for a firefighter birthday party is to set up a special training camp for junior firefighters. Your training camp could be set up in your yard or inside your home. This training could include obstacles to hop over, crawl under, crawl through, run around, carry, knock down…well, you get the idea. If you are hosting the camp outside, you could include a fire hose challenge where guests use the garden hose or water squirt toys to knock down “burning buildings” (small cardboard boxes colored to look like brick buildings).

Other training camp exercises include:

  • tug of war
  • water balloon target practice
  • blindfolded exercise – like pin the badge on the firefighter
  • rescuing stuffed animals and carrying them through the obstacle course

Each guest could be given a firefighter hat at the beginning of the training exercise and be awarded with a firefighter badge upon completion.

Firefighter Birthday Party – Food

A barbeque is perfect for a firefighter birthday party. Your guests could enjoy hot dogs & hamburgers on special themed dinnerware. A fun idea for a napkin ring is to wrap a piece of fire hose (shoestring licorice) around each individual napkin & cutlery set.

  • brownies piled to resemble a brick firehouse
  • red hot candies

  1. oooooooh good ideas! I am just starting to go through my prizes I won in the summer and plan my boys parties. I am going to have to use some of these ideas.

  2. Maybe I’m a dope, but I can’t find instructions to recreate the cake pictured at the top of the page. The one that looks like a fire station.

    • Hi Sharon! No, you aren’t missing anything…I don’t have a tutorial for it. It’s basically just brownies cut into blocks and stacked on top of each other. The balancing act is tough for the top portion over the fire truck though so you may want to use a kabob stick.
