Your twin boys’ birthday is just around the corner, and you’re absolutely pumping to give them the best birthday ever this year (again!). The same old party with typical birthday decorations, food, and activities can get dull after a few years, so why not try something different this year?
Kids are crazy about theme parties. They get to dress up and become their most-loved characters. Instead of doing the usual program this year, try planning a theme party for the boys and double the cuteness, excitement, and fun! Check out these five awesome birthday theme party ideas for twins to get you started.
Minecraft is a popular video game among children (and adults too). In fact, it’s one of the most-played games in the world, with more than ninety-one million players. Despite the rudimentary graphics, it’s a hit with millions of people because of the freedom and creativity it allows them to express. That said, if your twin boys are crazy about Minecraft, then they’ll be absolutely thrilled about having a Minecraft-themed party.
Prepare twin skins for the boys’ costume, and don’t forget the usual game accessories, like fake hammers, pickaxes, and swords, for authenticity. Decorate the venue with Minecraft party decorations that have the patented pixelated graphics. Go the extra mile by using Minecraft-related containers and birthday giveaways.
Harry Potter–Themed Party
Who wouldn’t want to be a wizard, own a magical wand, and go to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry? If you can’t get them their Hogwarts letter, then you might as well throw them a Hogwarts-themed party for their birthday (bonus points if it’s their eleventh birthday).
Deck your backyard or home with tapestries featuring insignias of Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff. Hang long white candles on the ceiling and turn the room à la Hogwarts Great Hall. Of course, you can’t neglect the long wood table, brass goblets, and metal tableware. Remember to serve house elf–approved party food too! And all these wouldn’t be complete without your boys’ own wizard robes, wands, and Hogwarts-worthy invitation cards.
Mario and Luigi Party
For their next birthday party, dress up the boys as two of the most well-known twins in video game history—Mario and Luigi! Your boys will be the stars of the party, looking like cute little adults in their blue overalls, red and green long-sleeved shirts, red and green hats, and fake mustaches.
You can use old boxes to create fake brick blocks to decorate your house or the venue. In the game, Mario and Luigi eat mushrooms to grow, so try decorating cupcakes with red and green frosting with white polka dots to make it look like the mushrooms from the game. For the rest of the decoration, remember to use the dominant colors in the game, which are red, green, blue, and yellow.
Thing One, Thing Two
When you think of popular fictional twin characters, you can’t forget Thing One and Thing Two from Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat. Thing One and Thing Two are mischievous twin brothers who came from a box. The Things have poofy blue hair and wear red jumpsuits with the labels “Thing 1” and “Thing 2” in a white circle. Thing One and Thing Two are just the perfect characters to dress up as for a pair of naughty twin boys while you dress up as the Cat in the Hat.
For the party decoration and food, use lots of blue and red, similar to Thing One and Thing Two’s colors. Incorporate red-and-white stripes, reminiscent of the Cat’s hat, on the curtains, party hangers, or tablecloth. Get creative and test your skills in rhymes with party invitations.
When you say theme party, superheroes are one of the first things that come to mind. Whether it’s Superman, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Wonder Woman, or Captain America—kids are wild about superheroes! You can never go wrong with a superhero-themed party.
The first on the list when planning a superhero-themed party is getting your boys’ the costumes of their favorite superheroes. For the rest of the party things, you can incorporate the colors and patterns of their favorite heroes. Most superheroes have a lot of red, blue, and yellow in their costumes. They also have their signature logos, which you can design into the invitations, decoration, utensils, and giveaways.
Every kid dreams of a fun and exciting birthday party filled with the people and things they love. And theme parties, where kids get to wear costumes and pretend to be their favorite characters, are some of children’s favorite things. For your boys’ birthday this year, double the fun and excitement with an awesome theme party of their own!
