Monster High Birthday Party Theme
Is your daughter asking to have a Monster High Birthday Party and you do not know where to start? Not to worry I am going to give you lots of ideas on how to throw a Monster High Birthday Party for your little Ghoul right here from start to finish.
Kids seem to love Monster High and it is getting quite popular. First you may want to familiarize yourself on what Monster High is all about.
To keep it brief, Monster High is a Cartoon series of Webisodes (videos that can be viewed online) that follow a group of Teenage Students who are the children of Legendary Monsters like Frankenstein, The Werewolf, Dracula, The Mummy etc… Your kids may have also seen Monster High on Nickelodeon where they have had some special shows air. And if your daughter is a fan then you have definitely seen all the Monster High Dolls and Merchandise from Mattel on the market.
Now being the show is about the Monster High Students attending School and Classes I would base the party around a school theme with some fun activities based on that. So with that said and my research on the show, which I think I may now know more about than my daughter at this point (lol), lets get this Monster High Party Started…..
Lets start with your Monster High Party Invitations. My favorite place to find great invites is on EBay. Currently there are quite a few designs to chose from and all of which are able to be personalized with your party information on them. You will also find Monster High Ticket Style Invitations available as well. It all depends on what you like and the best part is that some of the sellers give you the option of printing them from home which is great for you last minute party planners.
At this time there are no official Monster High Party Supplies, but I am sure that will change down the road and when it does you will find them right here. But in the meantime I have some ideas that would work to pull it off. One idea is to go with the Pink Skull Party Supplies - I think these are a great match and would definitely work for a Monster High Party. They also have the same supplies that you can personalize with a photo – so you can use a Monster High Image and you have your own customized Monster High Party Supplies.
UPDATE: Official Licensed Monster High Party Supplies are now available – Woooo Hoooo !!!
Another option is to go with Solid Colored Party Supplies mixing Turquoise and Hot Pink and accenting with Black. You can even find some Material at you local Fabric Store in an Argyle Pattern to create a matching Tablecloth for the table. Then just add some touches like this Mylar Skull with Pink Bow Balloon to a bouquet of Solid Latex Balloons in matching colors.
I also found these 12″ Latex Monster High Balloons which feature a Monster High image on both sides. They are sold in sets of 6 – so you get 2 Pink, 2 Blue and 2 Black Balloons.
When decorating your party area have some fun with it – This is Monster High so dig into your Halloween Decorations and bring some back out to set the scene. Always use what you have on hand to save money when you can – that is the best way.
Now check this out – On the Official Monster High Website they offer FREE Monster High Printables that you can use as well. I love FREE. Some of the things you will find is the Printable Monster High Note Book (pictured to the left) which also has pages of fun activities that go with it. You can print these up and have them on the plates on the table for each of the party guests – add in a pen and let them have fun doing the activities and filling in all the fun info. These also become a Party Favor they can take home – Double Bonus!!! In addition to that you can also print Monster High Student ID cards and Monster High Bookmarks – all for FREE.
Then have some fun with your Party Food or should I say Creepateria Food and serve things like Furry Nuggets (Chicken Nuggets), Macaroni & Fleas (Mac & Cheese), Clamburgers (Hamburgers), Frankfurters (Hot Dogs), Sushi (Lagoona Blue loves it), Grapes (Cleo De Niles Fav), Fruits & Veggies (Draculaura is a Vegan), Cream of Newt (Clam Chowder), Red Punch (Blood) etc….
Ok so now that we have set the scene for the party lets talk about a Fun Craft Activity you can have the party guests do. I found these adorable Mini Lockers that would be an adorable Craft and also double as your Party Favor. These Mini School Lockers are metal, 4-1/4″ wide x 4-1/2″ deep x 10-3/4″ high, interior features 6 hangers, 2 removable shelves, and a picture frame on the back of the door. Each locker comes with a padlock and two keys. How cute is that? Then the party guests can decorate them using Colored Permanent Markers and Stickers. They are perfect for storing Jewelry and little Trinkets the girls want to lock away. They are also available in lots of colors too: Black, Blue, Pink, Purple, Red, Silver, White, Yellow, Blue/Glitter and Purple/Glitter.
Now for some fun with Monster High Party Game & Activity Ideas. I have put together some ideas based off of the Monster High Classes and have included some printables that I have created and also some from the official website.
Fear Squad – Who has what it takes to make the Fear Squad? To play off of this you can do it like “Simon Says”, but instead of Simon chose someone to be Cleo De Nile who is the Fear Squad Captain. Have a pair of Pom Poms for them – you can even have Pom Poms for all the party guests if you like too. Then have Cleo do some Cheer moves saying “Cleo Says” and you know how it goes – when someone moves when Cleo does not say – they are OUT.
Dawn of the Dance Off - For this you will need the Monster High Fright Song (Theme Song to the show), which is available for Download HERE. Play this as you would Freeze Dance, but instead the party guests have to do their best Monster Moves and when the music goes off them must Freeze, but if they move they are out of the dance. Keep playing until you have a winner.
Mr. Hackington’s Mad Science Class – Let the party guests take this Mad Science Class and have them create some fun Slime you can color Pink or Blue just by adding in some Food Coloring. Pack it up and let them take it home as party of their Party Favor. You can find the recipe for the slime and other Science Ideas on my Science Party Post.
Ms. Kindergrubbers Home Ick Class – Mr. Hackington has a favorite Family Recipe that the party guests can create in Home Ick and it is his Puddin n’ Worms. It is super EASY and Frighteningly Delicious. His recipe is printable and you can even print out enough of them and stick them in the guests favor bags so they can make them again at home.
Mr. Where Drama Class – Looks like Mr. Where has held auditions for the School Play. Let the party guests have some fun with Mr. Wheres Funny Story about the Day. Print out this Mr. Where’s Word Game and give one to each party guest. Then break them into teams. One at a time they can ask each other to fill in the blanks without reading the story. Then each of them can read their story to everyone when they are done. It will be funny to hear all the different versions they come up with by adding in their own words. Oh the Drama !!!
Froggie Dash – Help rescue the Frogs that have escaped from Mr. Hackington’s Mad Science Class again. For this you will need a bunch of these Toy Frogs. Prior to the party break them up evenly into 2 piles. Mark each frog with a permanent marker on the bottom – One pile have the Number 1 on the Bottom and the other Number 2 on the bottom. Then Mix them all up. In the area where you will be playing have 2 Baskets for each team – this will be where they will return the Frogs too. Break your Party Guests into two teams. Take all your marked Frogs and Toss them around the playing area. On go the teams must run and find a Frog with their team number on it and return it to their basket. Each team member can only return one frog at a time. If they pick up one with the other teams Frog they can toss it to make it harder for the other team to get. Which ever team gets all their frogs back in the basket first wins.
Pass the Note – The Monster High Students like to pass notes in class, but have to be careful not to get caught. Take a piece of folded Paper and add a special Note inside for the winner. Then playing the game like you would Hot Potato, put on the Monster High Fright Song and play Pass the Note. If the music goes off and they are holding the Note – well then they are caught and have to leave Class. The winner is the one holding the note at the end of the game and they can open it and read it to the others.
Monster High terrifying Trivia Quiz - Time for the party guests to test their knowledge of Monster High with this Quiz. I created a Monster High Trivia page that has 20 questions about the show. Print one out for each party guest and not to worry I have an answer sheet for you too – lol. Give everyone a pencil or pen and then set a timer for maybe 3-5 minutes and when time is up that is it. Then it is grading time – Who will be the one with the best grade? Download and Print Here: Monster High Terrifying Trivia Quiz.
Now lets talk about your Monster High Birthday Cake. There are so many ways you can go with this cake that are pretty easy. One would be using an Edible Monster High Cake Image. This is just an image that gets placed on the top of your Frosted Cake, like the one pictured to the right.
You can also have some fun and create a cake in the shape of a Coffin. You can simply cut a sheet cake into the shape or use on of these Coffin Cake Pans. Then just decorate it up in Monster High Colors.
Have some fun with your decorations – add on Candy Eyeballs, Bones, Plastic Fangs etc… It is a Monster High Cake so anything Ghoulish goes.
But since I am a Cupcake Fan at parties I have created some FREE Printable Monster High Cupcake Toppers for you to use – there are 12 different designs. Cupcakes are so much easier and less hassle when it comes to cake time, they are my personal preference. All you need to do is Bake and Frost your Cupcakes, Print out the Cupcake Toppers on Heavy Cardstock or Photo Paper and Cut Out, Tape a Toothpick or Craft Stick to the back and stick into your cupcakes. How easy is that? Simple & Easy and you can have fun with your Cupcake Decor using fun Edible Glitter, Sprinkles and again Ghoulishly Fun Candies. You can also use the Wilton Haunted Manor Cupcake Wrappers like shown in the photo. They add that special spooky touch !!
Now lets talk about Monster High Party Favor Ideas. Check out this cool Pink and Black Argyle Favor Purse
that is perfect for packing up some favors. This is actually the favors box that matches the Pink Skull Party Supplies above. Each one is 6” wide x 4” high x 3” deep – so you can fit lots of goodies in there.
So what do you put in there? I like usable Party Favors so maybe a Jar of Monster High Pretty Scary Nail Polish, Lip Gloss and various Make Up. You can also add in some of the Monster High Rubber Bracelets or a Monster High Bottlecap Necklace (these are found on EBay and Handmade) for each of the party guests. Also keep in mind that Claire’s now has a line of Monster High products in their store – so I am sure you can find lots of Ghoulish things there as well.
You can also bake up some Cookies in the shape of a Skull and Coffin as a fun edible treat and you can find Cookie Cutters in those shapes to help. I love edible party favors !!!
Another thing I love to send home with the kids is Books and if you did not know it before there is a Monster High Book . This is a perfect book for young readers and a Party Favor you can feel good about sending the kids home with. Add in a fun Bookmark and you have a great Favor.
You can really have a lot of fun with the Monster High Party Favors – Just think Halloween and Monsters, Skulls and Pink Bows. If you want to be really creepy – add in some Candy Blood & Plastic Fangs to the favors – ewwww, but the kids would love it.
And why not stick in some of these FREE Monster High Coloring Pages they can take home as well. – Gotta love FREE.
A Monster High Party can be so much fun and there are so many things you can do to make it Killer (lol). Just have fun use your imagination and I hope some of my ideas have inspired you to get the party started!!!
