The Sky's the Limit with a Skylanders Birthday Party
Kick your adventure into overdrive! Your birthday party adventure, that is. If you have a little gamer at home, a Skylanders-themed birthday party is just the ticket. The video game series is out-of-this-world popular with kids, and it's played by placing character figures on the Portal of Power. It imports the character represented by the figure into the game as a playable character. There are eight elemental categories a Skylander can belong to: earth, air, fire, water, magic, life, tech and undead. So choose this theme for the next birthday party and make your favorite future Portal Master a happy camper!
Find party ideas and get creative with the help of our Ideas & Inspiration blog. We've got the latest trends and great DIY party ideas (like a Skylanders party!). You'll find girls' themes, boys' themes, first-birthday ideas and events. We'll help you get creative, even if you're really not.
Make a master list of supplies you'll need for the party and shop ahead for decorations, tableware, invitations and take-away party favors. That way you'll have less to think about when the date is near. You'll need decorations like wall decals, balloons and banners, and matching tableware, too!
Let his friends know they're invited! Give a hint to the theme of the party with officially licensed Skylanders invitations, and let the anticipation begin! Have the birthday boy or girl fill out the paper invitations in their own writing, and let them be involved in the party preparations.
Every birthday party needs decorations, especially a Skylanders party. Decorations set the scene. They let kids show their interests and spend time with their favorite characters. Without party decorations, it's just a bunch of kids hanging out on a play date. Include wall decals, banners, themed table décor, even a piñata, and you've got a real party! You can even hang swirls from the ceiling and put out paper masks for the kids to try on. Bring the magic of Skylanders alive and carry the theme throughout the venue. It's time to celebrate, so don't forget the balloons!
Float in the fun with a Skylanders balloon bouquet! Great for adding decoration anywhere in the party room, they also make wonderful centerpieces or even a chair decoration for the guest of honor. Put it together quickly with our balloon bouquet kit that includes 10 balloons, curling ribbon and a balloon weight.
Make your party extra special with a Skylanders birthday banner. This multicolored banner is made of paper and reads "Happy Birthday." It's the first thing guests see and sets the tone for the whole party. A banner is an essential part of any soiree, and this one matches the rest of the Skylanders décor.
Choose from a full line of Skylanders-themed party supplies. Set the table with party plates, napkins, plasticware and cups, all with the characters they love. Add a festive matching table cover. The table's not complete without a 3D centerpiece. You can choose party supplies individually, or you can select a pre-made table decorating kit to simplify the process. Don't forget a great cake topper for the birthday cake. The party supplies are officially licensed and sure to light up the imagination of your little one and guests on the big day.
A Skylanders birthday party isn't complete without things to keep little hands and minds busy. Set up a photo booth with themed wall decals to create a great memento of the day. Have them dress up in costumes that are unique and authentic so they can strike a pose. And a piñata with surprises inside to ramp up the excitement. You could set up a temporary tattoo parlor and help them apply a tattoo of their favorite Skylanders character. No kid wants to sit still, so keep them engaged with games and activities galore—it'll make the time fly and the guests happy!
Let them pretend to be Swarm or Tree Rex and bring the sting with these fun and bright Disc Shooters. Each guest can pick a color and a character. A safe game that'll keep ‘em busy and entertained, they'll use their imagination and become Portal Masters for a day.
Kids love tattoos and the process of putting them on. Just choosing where to put them, an arm or a leg or a foot, can be fun for them. Plus, the tattoos wash off easily with soap and water, so they're temporary! The package includes 16 different Skylanders tattoos of the characters they love.
When is a frisbee not a frisbee? When it's a Skylanders Flying Disc, of course. The discs are made of plastic and are 4" in diameter. They'll provide tons of fun, until the attention span gives way and they move on to something else. Then they can bring it home with them for even more fun.
Keep them occupied even longer with a costume or three. Guests can dress up as their favorite character from the game, like Night Shift. Set up a backdrop with wall decals, and you've got a fun photo opportunity! Get an instant camera and hand out the pics as take-aways when they leave the party.
Try incorporating these fun phrases into your invitations, DIY decorations, and other pieces of the party!
"Bring the Sting!"
"Be Afraid of the Bark!"
"Any Last Wishes?"
"I've Got My Eye on You!"
"It's Crush Hour!"
"Deal with the Wheel!"
