Party ideas for a Daniel Tiger Themed Birthday!
Daniel Tiger Themed Birthday Party
Over the weekend we celebrated Elliott’s 2nd birthday! If you read Cyns post last week, then you know Elliott (and I) love Daniel. The only tricky part with this theme is the fact that you can’t easily purchase Daniel Tiger party supplies at the dollar store (unlike Frozen, Paw Patrol, etc.). So you need to be creative! I wanted to share some of my ideas with you and some free printables for your next party.
8 Daniel Tiger Party Ideas:
1. Streamers and a Character Banner
I am not going to lie to you, I needed to hide my office doors (it is a complete disaster, and I am going to Ikea hack the room… eventually) so streamers were my best friend. My hubby helped me string these over the door and I added these a banner to the top to tie in the theme. These characters are a free download on the PBS website (huge score!).
2. Goody Bag Basket
I love creating goody bags for the kiddos. It is honestly my favourite part of planning a party. I can’t wait until Elliott is more involved with the process, hopefully next year! Just print a cute label on sticker paper and you have an easy treat basket in minutes.
3. Birthday Card Board
This chalkboard stays up in our house all year (the opposite side is a Christmas themed card board) and I love hanging special cards. Because it is painted with chalk paint, you can write a special message for the birthday boy. Or if you are lazy, like me, you can use stickers to decorate the board (I honestly tried to write his name with chalk a few times, gave up, and ran to my silhouette).
4. Birthday Board
I love creating a birthday board every year. I know one day I will want to look back on these pictures and remember all the little things Elliott accomplished that year. This year I used my silhouette to cut some images for the chalkboard. This saved me a ton of time! You can easily make your own, or order one already made from Etsy!
5. Birthday Cake
My favourite cake shop is a province away from us, so I managed to convince my Hubby to drive to Saskatchewan for Elliott’s cake. The owner made all of his birthday cakes when he was growing up, so it didn’t take too much convincing. I honestly didn’t care if it was Daniel Tiger themed because the cake is so delicious, but she surprised us with this adorable cake! Elliott was pretty excited.
6. Birthday Banner
This was another easy decoration. I used the leftover characters from the PBS website and hung some streamers on the fireplace. I debated making a personalized banner, but momma had a busy week, so this was a quick fix!
7. Birthday Invite
I designed my own invite for Elliott’s party and used Vista Print to print the cards. Vista Print has been my go-to for birthday cards and envelopes because they typically have a 40% off sale so the cards never cost me more than $20.DanielTigerinvite.png
8. Goody Bag Stickers
I designed this sticker to go on each goody bag with the child’s name. You can easily edit this file to add a personalized name to each sticker for your own party.DANIELTHANKYOU.png
Daddy helped Elliott read his cards and open his gifts. Elliott got a lot of amazing gifts from his friends and family.
Let me know what you did for your kiddos birthday! I would love to know the theme of party you picked.
