American Idol birthday party ideas for kids,
tweens and teens.
Create your own special party with these great ideas for invitations, decorations, food, games, activities and more.
Find dark blue invitations with silver stars ... or make them yourself by sticking silver stars onto the front of blank invitations.
Cards with musical notes, a sign of Hollywood or a microphone
would be great invitations choices.
On the outside of the cards write the phrase "You're going to Hollywood!"
Print out information onto CD labels, attach to blank cd's and send to guests.
Inside the invitation include an audition number printed on white paper that they can bring to the party and wear during their performances. Include a list of the music selections you will have available for the kids to sing with so they can practice before the party.
Have guests select a song and then get on stage to perform it in front of the "judges". Songs can be recorded and then placed on a cd to hand out as a favor after the party.
Glam it out
Let the kids have one round of karaoke ... and then bring out the glamour stations to get them fixed up for the next round. Set up stations with hair and face glitter, wigs, hats, props, boas, jewelry, temporary tattoos, etc. and let everyone have a glam makeover.

Name that Tune
Before the party pick several songs that have unique music. Have party guests see who can guess the name of a song by just playing a few notes of the beginning. Make it a competition by dividing into teams and taking bets on who can name that tune in the fewest amount of notes. Or roll a dice and what ever number comes up is how many seconds (or notes) the team has to answer.
Name that Song
Before the party print out a few lines from 15 different songs. Pass them out to guests and see if they can answer who the artist or band is that sing the songs.
American Idol Trivia
Do research and find out facts from all the previous seasons of American Idol. Make up a quiz for the kids to try and answer. Give prizes for the winners.
