DIY Kids Parties – Gold Coast
With the Gold Coast’s sandy shores, playgrounds, parklands or rainforest as the backdrop, the options for DIY kid’s parties on the Gold Coast are endless.
Shiver me timbers! There’s nothing that excites kids more than some yo ho ho pirate fun.
The Treasure Island Playground at Palm Beach provides the perfect setting for salty adventures. Complete with pirate ship, barrel swings, canons and tunnels, the kids will be quick to get into character.
Cardboard swords and spyglasses made out of toilet rolls would go down a treat. If you’re feeling adventurous, make a cardboard chest, sharks for under the plank, or a pirate party photo booth.
Bury some treasure beneath the sand and make a map for older kids. Remember, it’s no pirate party if no one walks the plank!
Be creative when you plan the party food. Anyone feel like dead man fingers (cheerios) or cannon balls (Maltesers)? We think this watermelon pirate ship makes a great centrepiece. Send your guests home with a brown paper gift bag decorated with a pirate gift card and filled with gold coins and treats.
There’s no better setting than the Gold Coast’s sandy shores for a mermaid party.
We all know Ariel loves to scour for treasures from the human world. Why not bury treasure in the sand for the kids to find? Pin the tail on the mermaid offers a fun twist on an old favourite. Instead of a party bag, a DIY starfish wand or King Triton trident would make a cute memento.
Fairy garden party
High atop Mt Tamborine in the Gold Coast hinterland, the rainforest offers the perfect setting for a fairy garden party. If you don’t want to venture too far afoot, a fairy garden party can be held in any of the parklands on the Gold Coast.
There’s no shortage of free fairy invitation printables online and a selection for purchase on Etsy. A long table adorned with greenery, flowers and toadstools would make a beautiful feature point. Decorate trees with fairy lanterns and flower garlands.
Set up an art and craft table and invite guests to decorate wooden fairy wands. We think these flower garlands and fairy wands make the perfect party favour.
