An Airplane Party is a great choice for kid party ideas. 





Kids love the adventure of an airplane, so an airplane or fighter jet party can be the perfect idea.

Here are some ideas to get you started!

Some people think of this as a "boy" party idea, but don't limit yourself!

Girls love airplanes too.

As a matter of fact, I've had lots of little girls delighted to fly toy paper, balsa and remote control airplanes in the front yard.

Really Easy Party Invitations

  • Make your invitation to look like an airplane ticket or boarding pass (you know, the kind we used to get years ago?)
  • Write your invitation on a paper airplane
  • Write the invitation details on different parts of a balsa wood airplane
  • Cut out an airplane shape and write out your party details

Airplane Kid Party Games

Every party needs fun kids party games. But game don't have to be hard or complicated.

Here are some ideas to incorporate an airplane theme into your children's birthday party games:

  • Teach the kids how to make paper airplanes and fly them in a race. 
  • Put together and fly balsa wood airplanes. This is a combo craft / game / party favor, all in one! Win - Win - Win!
  • Visit your local airport for a tour of an airplane. Even if you can't arrange a tour, kids can enjoy watching the planes land and takeoff.
  • For younger parties, pretend to board an airplane and visit fun, exotic destinations such as those listed in our Around the World Party Ideas. (Don't forget the passport stickers!)
  • Combine airplane ideas with train parties or car parties for a transportation theme. This is a great way to incorporate more variety into your games too.
  • More party games for kids can be found in this website's Kids Party Games section.
