Butterfly Birthday Theme

Fun ideas for a Butterfly Themed Birthday Party. 

Mix and match these ideas to create your own special butterfly party.
 

Butterfly Party Invitations

Send out butterfly shaped cards or plain white cards with butterfly stickers.

For fun tie butterfly shaped cards (with party information) onto curling ribbon and attach to a helium balloon. The invitation will seem to “fly” below the helium balloon.

Butterfly Party Decorations
Cut out large butterfly wings from colored paper and attach to Styrofoam bodies. Paint the bodies and add antennae  and eyes - then hang from the ceiling with fishing line.

On the birthday cake or present table cover the top of the table with a sunny yellow tablecloth.  Make large colorful flower petals out of construction paper or poster board and then tape the petals around the outside of the table to make a flower.

Add large artificial flowers all over the room (we’ve found super size flowers at the dollar store that were 12” wide).

Blow up helium balloons and tie them with long strings of curling ribbon.  Attach butterflies, dragonflies or any flying bug to the end of the curling ribbon. Let the balloons float to the ceiling and the butterflies and bugs  will “fly” around the party area.

Fun Ideas
Gather or buy cheap colorful silk scarves and let the party guests pretend they are flying using them as wings.

Set up a bubble blower and let them fly through the bubbles and pop them.

      

Butterfly Party Games

Butterfly Hunt
Buy butterfly nets and plastic butterflies (check the dollar store). Hide the butterflies all over the backyard (or inside the house) and have a butterfly hunt. Let them keep the butterfly net and the butterflies they find.

Variation: Hide special butterflies around the yard which will earn the finder a special prize.  Before the party buy several small items to use as prizes and assign them a number.  On several of the butterflies that are hidden write a number that corresponds with the prize number.  When a child finds a butterfly with a number they get the prize that matches that number.  

Butterfly Cocoon TP Wrap
You’ll need 2 - 3 rolls of new toilet paper for each team.  Divide guests into teams of 3 to 4 players.  Each team
 chooses who will be the caterpillar (the one who gets wrapped up).  Give each team member - other then the caterpillar - a roll of toilet paper.   At the go signal teams have to wrap up their caterpillar in the toilet paper as
 quick as they can. The team that uses all of it’s toilet paper first wins. Hint: Use the cheap single rolls of toilet paper.)

Elphin Game
The store bought game that has an elephant who blows out butterflies from his trunk. Kids try and catch the butterflies with their nets. Lots of fun for younger children.

Butterfly Nature Scavenger Hunt
This is a fun game for the yard or park. Divide guests into 2 teams (or if there are more then 10 guests 3 - 4 teams).
Each team will need:
A paper bag
Plastic spoons (one from each team member)
Zippered sandwich bags
A copy of the Butterfly Nature Hunt list for each team member
Make a list of 10 - 20 nature items that can be easily found outside and around the party area.

Tell the teams that they are to try and find all the items on their list. The spoon and plastic baggie are for collecting bugs.

Give them a time limit - 15 to 30 minutes depending on how long the list is.  

 Print out the free list from the  nature scavenger hunt list

The first team back with all the items on the list wins … or if time runs out the team that has the most items from the list wins. Give both teams a prize.

Scavenger hunt suggestions:

Before making the butterfly scavenger hunt list go to the area and look around.  Write down the things that you see and add them to your list. Take care to remove any potential dangers - ant mounds, poison ivy, etc. before the beginning of the party. Here are some things to look for: A feather, something blue, root, grass blade, seeds, wood, 3 different kinds of leaves, stick, something that makes noise, something that is faster (or slower) then a garden snail, something shiny, something white, something soft, something black.

Butterfly Relay Races
Play relay races and games but have them “fly” as they play the games.

Activities
Make butterfly wings, or have them already pre-made or buy them and let the girls decorate the wings at the party.

Buy wooden butterfly shapes at the craft store. Let the girls paint them with glittery paint of all colors, then when dry they can stick on jewels. Place a magnet strip on the back for a pretty refrigerator magnet.

Bake cookies and cut them out with a butterfly cookie cutter. Let the guests decorate their butterflies with frosting, candies and writing gel. This can also take the place of a large cake.

Make fun antennae with headbands, pipe cleaners and pom pom balls. Let them take them home for a party favor.

Fun Jell-O jigglers cut with a cookie cutter into butterfly shapes.
Sandwiches cut with cookie cutters.
Bow tie pasta - it looks like butterfly wings!
