7. Undersea Birthday Party (Educational!) 

The undersea party is a classic, but you can make it more educational by introducing each game with a little background on each games featured ocean animal. For example, if you play a shark-themed version of tag- where one person is the shark and the players are in the water- tell the kids about how sharks eat seals, and say the players who arent itare seals. If you have a seashell-related craft, talk about how seashells are the animalsleftover homes.

As a parent, you have an opportunity to fill your childs birthday with smiles, games, and memories theyll carry with them for years to come. Whatever theme you choose, dont forget to take plenty of pictures, enjoy the little moments - and celebrate!
