Kids Birthday Party Theme IdeasYour neighbor Marge held the last birthday party, free range style: Johnny burned down the neighbor's mailbox; Kelly got sick after eating a frog. You know party themes hold kids on task, right? We figure that's why you're looking up kids birthday party theme ideas!

You know what can happen without a little structure, right? And you want kids to think you're the coolest ... of course! Themed party ideas help hold it all together. You could start with a gift you know your child will enjoy: maybe it's a Barbie? Maybe she loves all things pigs, birds or rabbits; or everything having to do with piñatas? Maybe he loves transformers. Mold it all into a birthday party theme — related games, related party foods and decor and you're set.

But maybe you think you've already done it all, and you're really looking for an original party theme? We know that's why you're here. Here are some theme ideas you may not have thought of.

Indiana Jones Birthday Party

This Indiana Jones birthday party idea was submitted by Laura of Miane.

Have all the kids you invite wear a costume. Make a course for the kids to do at the party.

At my son's 8th birthday party, we made marshmallow shooters, and part of the course was to knock down foam blocks.

Indiana Jones Birthday Party Marshmallow ShooterWe also had a balance beam, water balloons as land mines, a bucket of mud with special rocks they had to find in it. Also we had a climbing wall and a rope swing.

When the kids finished, we gave them themed bags. They took home the marshmallow shooters that we made from PVC pipe.

Editor's Note:

Excellent kids birthday party idea! This kind of theme really makes for good ideas for activities. And keeping the kids entertained means the party takes care of itself and they'll remember it fondly for a good long time.

I love the special rocks in a bucket of mud idea. The rocks could be glass beads. If you want to have a competitive game, you could have each kid take turns and give a prize for the kid who finds the one special rock.

Want to know how to make a marshmallow shooter? Check out Marye's instructions here.

Related to the marshmallow shooter is the spud gun or potato cannon. For detailed instructions click here. This idea is crazy funny ... but indeed might be dangerous. Supervise kids to make sure they don't potato bomb each other!
