Birthday Party for Kids
Basketball themed party ideas including unique
ideas for decorations, party games, activities, invitations, party food,
favors for girls and boys.
Make basketball theme invitations for your party with cardstock and a little imagination.
Basketball Invitations - Fold a piece of cardstock in half - trace the shape of a basketball on the cardstock making sure to leave the top of the basketball on the fold of the paper.
When you cut out the basketball the front and back should be connected at the fold. Paint or color the cards orange and paint on black stripes.
On blank white note cards glue basketball trading cards or pictures of your favorite team using the player who's jersey number corresponds with your child's age.
On the inside write - "Everyone is celebrating Johnny's 9th birthday!"
Basketball Jersey - Another fun idea is to make a cutout of a jersey with cardstock. Draw a jersey on a piece of folded cardstock or a blank note card. Keep the top connected at the fold. Then color or paint the jerseys your team colors. For a jersey number place the age of your child and the teammates name who corresponds with that number - or your child's last name.
