If you want a simple birthday party idea that appeals to both genders and all ages, consider a sundae party for your kid’s next birthday party. Your menu is simple and the kids will have a blast.
Plan a few games to get the party going. Depending upon your age group, you could play pin the tail on the donkey, play board games or have a piñata. You could also take the kids out for a fun activity, such as going to the batting cages, go-kart racing or miniature golfing before coming home for sundaes.
You don’t need a lot of decorations for this party – you really don’t even need a cake unless the birthday boy or girl insists. A Happy Birthday banner, some streamers and balloons in your guest of honor’s favorite theme will do the trick.
For the sundae bar, you’ll need the following:
- • Plastic sundae or banana split cups and plastic spoons
- • Chocolate and vanilla ice cream (find out if you have lactose intolerant guests – you may be able to offer sherbet or sorbet as a substitute)
- • Crushed Oreo cookies
- • Whipped cream
- • Sauces (chocolate, caramel and strawberry, for sure)
- • Cherries
- • Chopped peanuts (check for allergies)
- • Mini chocolate chips
- • M&Ms
- • Gummies
- • Marshmallows
- • Bananas (if you want to offer banana splits)
Prepare bowls of ice cream in the kitchen to avoid a big mess. Then put the fixings out “buffet style” and let the kids pile on all the toppings they can stand. You might even offer prizes for the most unique sundae or the guest who can eat a sundae that contains every single topping on the bar.
If you want to offer some specialty sundaes, consider the following:
Rocky Road Sundae
Chocolate or vanilla ice cream
Graham cracker crumbs
Peanut Butter Heaven
Chocolate or Peanut Butter Ice cream
Broken peanut butter cups
Vanilla Ice Cream
Chocolate toffee bits
As you can see, this is a pretty simple and fun party. You can even pick up some ice cream sundae invitations at our web-site to make the perfect announcement for this party.
