Cowboy Birthday Theme
Mix and match these birthday party games, activities, party food and other ideas to create your own special Cowboy party.
Cowboy Party Invitation Ideas
On large labels print out the information to the party. Place the labels on blue or red bandanas and give them to the party invitees. On the label ask the guests to wear their bandana to the party.
Cut construction paper or card stock into the shape of stars, horses or boots.
On the inside of the card write:
Yeee haw! It's soon to be party time in the ________ (hosts last name) corral.
Meet us at the ranch at: _____________ (party location)
Cattle drive starts at: _____________ (start time of the party)
And get along little doggies at: ___________ (end time of the party)
Contact the Ranch Foreman ________ so we'll know to be expectin' ya! (fill in the date you would like guests to contact you if they are attending the party)
Decorations for a Cowboy Party
Decorate the party area and outside the entrance to the party with cowboy hats, boots, bales of hay and rope.
If you have enough hay bales place them along the walk way to the party.
Scatter hay along the sidewalk and in front of the walkway to the party entrance.
White tablecloths look great with bandana printed napkins, plates and cups or use a red and white checkered pattern tablecloth with solid color plates and cups.
Centerpieces made from cowboy boots filled with artificial flowers.
Fill glass vases or metal buckets with bright yellow sunflowers and then tie with a blue bandana.
Cowboy Party Games
Cowboy Dress up relay
Cowboy Cow Patty Throw
Cut several stars out of thick cardboard and paint them yellow. Place a cowboy hat on the ground and have the children line up behind the throw line and toss their stars inside the cowboy hat.
Variations: Instead of stars you can tie a bandana around a ball.
Use 5 cowboy hats lined up in a row and let them try and make it into the #1 hat first, then the #2 hat … etc. ending up with the farthest away #5 hat.Cowboy Roundup
You'll need a rope lasso and a children's ride on horse. Teach the children how to throw a lasso around the horse's head.
Cowboy Relay Races
Make up races and have kids do them with mop horses. You can also buy stick horses. Divide into teams. Have the cowboys stand one behind the other. The first player from each team rides their horse to the opposite end of the playing area, around a cone (or a hay bale) and back.
1st round: Ride horses around a cone and back.
