Have a little monster celebrating a special birthday? These ROARsome Monster Birthday Party ideas are sure to be a big hit! From a slightly gruesome yet totally delicious buffet to creating your own monsters, this birthday party will leave your little monster with some great birthday memories. All of the party printables featured here are by Just a Little Sparkle and are available for purchase in her shop.
Monster Birthday Party – Invitations:
Invite your guests to a monsterous good time with these printable invitations. Seal the invitations with a stamp of a monster hand and a few colored feathers sticking out of the envelope’s seal.
Monster Birthday Party – Decorations:
For a monster party, you can use a lot of fur, feathers and googly eyeballs for decorations. Monsters come in all shapes, sizes and colors so let your creativity run wild with this party!
In the first picture above, you’ll see that I used a feather boa to string the Happy Birthday banner together. There were a lot of flying feathers while I was trying to make it (the cats were going nuts) but it turned out really cute.
A furry boa can be used to hang this welcome sign on the door to greet guests as they arrive to the party.
Googly eyeballs can be glued onto green paper cups and topped with colorful paper straws.
A plastic tablecloth is a really simple way to create a colorful backdrop for your party food table. This can be easily hung with a little bit of painter’s tape.
To give balloons a funny face, use double-sided tape to stick on eyeballs. Just make sure whatever you use for the eyes isn’t too heavy or you’ll weigh the balloons down.
Monster Birthday Party – Activities:
Who doesn’t secretly wish they could be a silly monster for a day? Well, this Monster Photo Booth helps to create the silliest and funny little monsters you’ll ever meet! Some ideas for your Monster Photo Booth include:
- Marshmallow teeth
- feather boas in a variety of colors
- silly string
- crepe streamer paper
- plastic eyeballs
- pool noddles as extra arms
- pipe cleaners
I love activities that also double as a take-home favor. A fun activity for the kids is to create their own monster hand puppets. The fabulous ladies over at Six Sisters Stuff have an adorable & ROARsome free printable template along with instructions on how to create your own Monster Puppets. You may want to have the pieces cut out before the party so that the kids just have to assemble them.
What would you expect to fall out of a monster pinata? Surprise your little guests with a pinata full of plastic eyeballs! Be sure to have your camera ready for the funny reaction from the kids.
Monster Birthday Party – Food:
Slightly gruesome monster food can still be totally delicious. Some fun ideas include:
- mini cheese balls labeled as “fur balls”
- mini powdered donuts with a small round chocolate in the middle and labeled as “eyeballs”
- french fries and dip labeled as “antennas and dip”
- triangle pizza slices labeled as “plaque teeth”
- lime pop labeled as “slime”
Monster Birthday Party – Favors:
It’s so easy to create your own fun favor bags for a monster party. Simply glue on an eyeball (or 3) to the front of a solid color bag or box. Voila – an instant monster favor bag!
Some fun ideas for favor bag fillers include:
- monster finger puppets
- green slime
- monster tattoos
- monster cups (there are some adorable ones in the supplies section below)
- monster face masks
