Check out these games, decorations, and party favors that all revolve around the Monster High world ...

Ideas for a Monster High Themed Birthday Party

Planning a kid's birthday party is one of the funnest jobs I have as a parent, so I like to go all out and give them a party to remember. My daughter's favorite 'toy' right now is her Monster High dolls. At Halloween she was so excited to dress up as Draculaura, so I knew that when her birthday rolled around, I would surprise her with a Monster High birthday party.

Let me share some of my ideas with you ...

Costume Birthday Party

The thing that most of the girls love about the Monster High characters are their outrageous fashions, hair styles, and makeup.

  • Ask your guests to come dressed as their favorite MH personality.
  • Or, host a dress-up party complete with a couple of hair stylists and make-up artists (draft a couple of other Moms to help)

Be sure to have a backdrop ready for a photo session!

Dance Party

Do your girls love to dance and get crazy? Hold a Monster High Dance party.

Teach them the Monster High Fright song dance from the music video. Not a great dancer? Ask a family friend or a teen from your neighborhood to come over to teach the girls the dance.

Once they've learned it, film it and give it to them as a Thank You gift for coming to the party. If it is okay with them and their parents, you can share it on Facebook or You Tube.

Of course, you'll need a good playlist loaded on your iPod if you want to get them dancing. Here's a few ...

Traditional Birthday Party Games

With a Monster High Twist
  • Scavenger Hunt

Make a list of Monster High related objects and send them on a scavenger hunt. Be sure to specify where they are allowed to go (the whole house, a neighborhood, or just a certain room) when playing the game.

Here are a few ideas to get you started ...

  1. Needle & Thread (to stitch Frankie Stein back together)
  2. Dog Biscuits (snacks for Clawdeen)
  3. Bottled Water (for Lagoona Blue)
  • Match the Pet with the Monster 

This game can be played with the real Monster High dolls and their pets, but if you don't have them all, then you can just print and cut them out.

  • Monster High Quiz Race

Use material from the books to create a list of questions. Have them all line up at the starting line and if they get the answer right, they get to take one giant step forward. First one to the finish line wins!

  • Project Runway ... Monster High Style

Using the Monster High sketch pads, have each child design one or two outfits. Then put them on display in a Fashion Show.

Snacks for a MH Party

Even Monsters get the Munchies

Given that these dolls are soooo G L A M, you can turn it up a notch when it comes to serving the food and drinks. Think along the lines of a kids mocktail party. They will love it if you serve them drinks from fancy glasses (even if they are plastic!), and little appetizer types of food.

When it comes to the food, you can take any kind of sandwich and cut it into cute shapes like stars, hearts, and serve it on a decorated platter. Use fancy skewers for a fruit salad.

It is all in the presentation, not so much in what is served. These are kids afterall, and most kids I know aren't that likely to try new kinds of food.

Party Favors

Gifts for Ghouls

Party favors for the birthday party can be as simple as a photograph of the guest and the birthday girl, or you can give them something more substantial. Here are a few ideas to think about ...

  • Hair feathers are all the rage right now, and you can buy them in bulk on sites like Ebay for a pretty reasonable cost. Putting them in their hair could be part of your costume party too!
  • Makeup kits would be adored!
  • Nail Polish gift sets are great as well. Crackles, magnetic, and even the nail stickers are things that girls of all ages love.
  • You can also find these adorable Monster High bottle cap hair clips on eBay.

Lolly, Thank you for practical information, pretty pictures and product lines.
Your suggestions for activities and snacks are so appealingly do-able. They are adjustable to similar celebrations, like for Halloween, monster and Samhain events. In particular, I like the three drinks.

What would you have as breads and fillings to sandwiches, ingredients and toppings to salads?
