Food Fight Party Theme

     Here’s a great budget birthday party idea that will be fabulous fun for the kids: a FOOD FIGHT! If the idea interests you and your child, here are some ways to put this together:

♢This party is ideal for outdoors, but it you are willing to have a food fight inside, host it in a space that you don’t mind getting messy, such as a garage or basement, or perhaps a large shed. You may want to cover the space with plastic to make post-party cleanup easy.

♢When the kids arrive at the party, for both safety and easy cleanup, provide kids with shower caps, plastic goggles, and a rain poncho. These will keep them safe and relatively clean through the food fight.

♢After they have their outfits on, give the kids a bag of marshmallows and slingshots; they can kick the party off by slinging marshmallows at one another as they wait for everyone to arrive. Make sure they’re supervised in the designated party area.

♢Cover a table with a variety of perfect food-fight foods: spaghetti, whipped cream, mashed potatoes, pudding, Jell-O, cereal, hard-boiled eggs, popcorn, oatmeal, bananas, etc. Use whatever you like—and you can make it even more interesting by dying some of the foods (for example, green mashed potatoes).

♢You may want to announce a few “rules” to the kids before the food fight breaks out. Some suggestions include: keep the goggles on, stop throwing if they hear the sound of a whistle (or something else you find appropriate), and keep the food fight within the designated space.

♢If there are kids who do not feel comfortable participating, let them have fun watching on the sidelines.

♢Make sure to have your video camera out to capture this fun!

♢You can also have the kids play some organized “food games,” including blindfolding the kids and having them eat donuts that have been strung on a string. The first kid to finish eating his donut wins! Or, have the kids partner up and feed each other pudding standing five feet away from one another using a plastic spoon. Afterward, the kids can use squirt guns to clean themselves up.

♢Your party menu can be very simple, as the kids will be playing with as much food as they eat! Serve ice cream and cake to top the party off.

♢Send the kids home with a splattered brown paper bag filled with good food: a piece of fruit, a veggie, a pudding pack, etc. as a reminder of their foodie fun!
