Birthday Party Ideas for Your Sports Lover

birthday party kids sportsMy son Spencer loves all things sports, so it was a natural theme for his 7th Birthday Party.

First, I made invitations that looked like tickets (thanks, Pinterest!) and instructed everyone to wear something representing their favorite sport, team, or teams. It was fun to ask the kids about their outfit choices as they entered our home for the party!

We love that both of our kids’ birthdays are in the summer so we can expand the party to be outdoors. My husband measured out a ballfield that was the perfect size for our elementary-aged guests.ball game

Food was a breeze, too. The sports theme called for things that we all enjoy at the ballpark — cracker jacks, candy bars,11796213_10206263058151816_40818687852954769_n and licorice. We gave each child a pack of Big League Chew as a take-home gift to avoid finding gum all over our house for months to come!
