Throwing a Frog Themed Birthday Party

Jul 29, 2008
Are you throwing a Frog Themed Birthday Party for your child? Themed parties are very popular nowadays, and they're often simple to pull off if you have a little creativity and do a tiny bit of homework. As we know little boys are made of frogs, snails, and puppy dog tails, such a theme will be right up your little tadpole's alley! Choosing the right decorations and frog themed favors will make his party a smash hit with the rest of the neighborhood. Here are some great ideas for frog themed birthday parties:

Green and Blue - These are the colors to go with when planning your frog themed birthday party. Streamers and decorations should reflect the blue waters of a frog's pond, and the green of the frog and surrounding lily pads. Search for frog themed birthday banners. Checking the internet for frog images will turn up thousands of results - and don't just limit yourself to the green ones. Many exotic African tree frogs come in reds and yellows and even blues! In this digital age most moms people have color printing options available to them, either at home or by uploading the images to online sites for processing. Print a few glossy 8x10's of these images to hang around the party room, and watch the little ones oogle all the different varieties and colors.

Frog Party Invitations - Again, the web is an unlimited source of great frog images. Frog themed birthday party invitations can easily be made up to look like fliers, listing the party's date and time in the middle. Cover your invite with beautiful frogs, flies, and lilies. Send them out in green envelopes. Grab a simple roll of frog stickers from a stationary store or cheap online auction, and plaster them on the envelopes and fliers. If you check your local post office, you can even find frog stamps!

Frog Themed Arts and Crafts - Your choices are limitless here. One great idea would be to have each party goer create his or her own frog mask. Use heavy gauge green construction paper or purchase plastic visors from a craft or dollar store. Buy a pack of those big googly eyes, and some pre-cut rounded pieces of foam to go behind them. Create some pre-cut black paper 'spots' and then have each child create their own red frog tongue. A couple of glue sticks later, and everyone has a simple, fun, easy-to-make frog mask... and you have no mess or cleanup! The possibilities are endless, but always think simple. You're going to be running a party full of kids, and you want things to flow smoothly.

Frog Themed Birthday Games - You can put a frog themed spin on just about any birthday game there is! How about pin the tongue on the frog? Using a poster board and some green paint, design a large frog with an open mouth. Cut some tongue shapes from red or pink construction paper and place each child's name on the tongues. Then play it exactly like pin the tail on the donkey, blindfold and all - with the winner being the child who places the frog's tongue closest to the center of the mouth. Another idea would be Leapfrog Musical Lily Pads. Create some lily pads out of old green mats or sheets of foam. Play music and have the children frog-hop around 'the pond' in circles... when the music stops, everyone must find a pad to sit on or they're eliminated - just like musical chairs. Then there's the Frog Bean Bag Toss. Have kids toss green frog-themed bean bags onto pre-cut lily pads, each marked with different amounts of point. Make small pads are worth higher points, and the child with the highest total becomes the winner. With a little creativity, you always can create your own game. Leap Frog Relay Race... Frog Bingo (using 'flies' instead of chips!)... Frog-Frog-Tadpole instead of duck-duck-goose... there's no limit!

Frog Themed Birthday Cake - Most bakeries should have no trouble making your child a fantastic frog cake. If however, you'd like to make your own, there are frog-shaped cake pans available on the internet. Using green and white icing, you can decorate it any way you like. Find some low-cost frog figurines from a craft or dollar store, and use them to decorate. For an even more unique idea, find a bakery that will provide 'frog cakes' - one for each child. These are a fondant dessert in the shape of a frog's head, a sponge base topped in cream and then dipped in green chocolate. A 'mouth' is cut in the top of each cake and then a pair of eyes are added using black sprinkles or toppings. Very cute! Even if you choose this, be sure to get a small cake so everyone can still sing happy birthday.

Frog Birthday Party Bags - Once again, the dollar store is your friend. Any amount of low-cost frog themed toys and favors can be found at your nearest craft store. Find white lunch bags and have your child pre-color them green before the party, writing each child's name on the bags as well. You get unique favor bags AND your child gets to do something fun for his own party to boot! Stretchy frogs, green bouncy balls, plastic frog and fly figurines - then fill the bags with some frog themed candy, like green and brown M&M's or gummy insects. You can even bake some frog cookies beforehand, if you're feeling ambitious enough.

With only a minimal amount of work, your child's frog themed birthday party can be something remembered for a long time to come! It's almost guaranteed that the little boys and girls will rush home to their parents with their own themed parties in mind... so be ready to answer questions and offer advice!
