Cat Birthday Party Ideas
When planning a cat birthday party, there are so many resources it’s easy to be imaginative. You could hold a cat show, (with toy cats!), cat fancy dress, theme the party on the musical “Cats” or any one of a number of combinations. There are just so many ideas and resources it’s hard to choose! At the very least, kids and/or moms and dads can have cat ears and painted-on whiskers, and you can serve milk! Catfood isn’t recommended for small tummies, however!
• A cat birthday party needs cat-shaped decorations, naturally!
• Maybe you want to invite the guests to come to a Cat Show, with real or toy cats and list the judging categories.
• Or alternatively, how about inviting them to bring toy cats to the grooming parlour for an interesting variant on the “Cat Show” theme?
• No cat birthday party is complete without mice and fish! Sugar or chocolate mice make good eating, and you can make pretend goldfish out of slices of carrot and put in a goldfish bowl on the table as a centrepiece! If the kids eat the goldfish, they’re a healthy snack anyway!
• Cat partyware is easy to find, or make your own by using cat stickers.
• For a cat birthday party it depends on what you’ll be doing. Yes, cats everywhere, obviously, but if you’re holding a Cat Show it can be fun to lay out tables and a viewing area, judges box etc.
• Balloons with cats on are festive and fun.
Specials for the special child
• A catsuit is perfect, or a cat T shirt or sweater for the day.
• If you’re buying a kitten as a birthday present, always keep it well away from little ones on the big day, as it will be frightened by too many people.
Gifts and accessories for guests
• Cat ears can be fun for wearing, and you can easily draw on whiskers to match!
• Guests can make cats from cardboard and fur fabric, glue, paints etc, or by using kits.
• Piñatas are always recommended, as kids love them, and a cat piñata at a cat birthday party will be no exception!
Party favors and goody bags
• Make cat cookies with a shaped cookie cutter and give them to guests.
• Make favor boxes and fill with goodies such as cat pens, pencils and erasers, colouring books etc. Plus candy or sugar mice.
GAMES AND ACTIVITIES
At a cat birthday party games can be themed on cats, cats and mice or cats and dogs. Here are some cat activities and games.
The Cat Show
Have a cat show cat birthday party! Get kids to bring along their favorite cat toy and set up a show. They can groom and exhibit cuddly toys, or just show off other cat toys. Have prizes in the best category – biggest cat, smallest cat, cutest cat, fattest cat etc. If they want, the birthday child can be a judge! Make sure everyone wins a prize if kids are small, or there may be sad faces!
Cat and Mouse!
This is like hide and seek, except one person plays the cat, and the others the mouse. When a mouse is spotted, they have to try to run back to the “hole” to escape, or the cat catches them, and then they become the cat.
We’ve all seen a cat or kitten chase a ball. Get a football, and have the kids chase it on hands and knees, batting it with their paws, around a course of cones or obstacles laid out in advance. Make it harder by placing socks or mitten on their hands!
Groom the cat
Get a grown up to be the cat and lie down, and have the kids brush them all over one at a time. They have to guess when the cat will hiss and scratch and frighten them off! Then have the kids take it in turns to be the cat, but make sure they’re gentle when they scratch!
Saucer of milk
No cat birthday party would be complete without a saucer of milk! If you don’t mind getting messy, put saucers of milk down on the floor and have the kids see just how hard it is to lap up!
