Kids are really fond of trains and would love to have a birthday party with an express train theme. Here are some great ideas for Birthday Party express your kids would love to have.
An express train birthday party can be made as unique as you want! Railway tickets would of course make the best invitation cards for the party. Make the invitation note something different like, ‘The birthday party express will leave station ___ at ___ on ___. You are invited to have a whirl wind ride with Captain___.'
If there is enough to spend, you can rent an old train compartment for holding the party, but in case that is not possible, your own house can work great for the purpose too! Just decorate the house to look like a typical railway coach.
Paint a railway track to lead your guests to the party grounds.
A sign saying platform___ would make things more real. Paint cardboard boxes in red and green to make them look like a train. The guests are sure to be thrilled with typical railway platform sounds like train whistles and chugs playing in the background. The balloons you hang can also bear pictures of trains or engines. Dress the birthday kid as a train driver. The other kids would also love to slip into engine driver caps. Devise your own games to go with the theme. The kids would have some real fun with games like ‘shovel the coal'. You can use beans or little beads for the coal and give a prize to the one who shovels the maximum coal in a given time. The piñata can be train shaped too.
The birthday cake should of course be a train shaped one. It would be a good idea to serve your guests an exclusive railway lunch in lunch boxes with trains drawn on them.
For the party favors, the kids would love to have railway whistles and candies with pictures of trains. The thank you notes can also be written on train pictures. The main idea is to give the kids a feel of a typical train journey.
