A kid Around the World Party, also known as an geography party, and sometimes converted to an amazing race party, is lots of fun!
Here are some easy party ideas and games to get you started on your adventure around the world!
Use maps, or items from different countries for your invitations, party favors and even decorations.
First select what countries you'd like to "visit" during your party.
Ideal countries are those where you can bring in decorations to identify it, as well as a fun activity related to that country.
If you have enough guests, you can divide into team for an Amazing Race. Teams can be designated with different colored bandanas or t-shirts.
For a cake, consider a globe cake, such as this Superman Cake (just leave off Superman!) or a map cake.
Part of the fun of an around the world party is getting to experience some things you might not normally do at a party.
Once you've picked your countries, you can then decide on an activity or game for each country.
Some examples of fun, and different, ideas for party activities are:
Africa - Play animal games, or animal bingo.
Antarctica - Give each player an ice cube of approximately the same size and let them each race to see who can melt their ice cube the fastest.
China - Give everyone a pair of chopsticks, a cup and minimarshallows. See who can fill a cup with marshmallows first.
Germany - Have kids learn a German dance.
USA - Hula Hoop Contest, or having to Hula Hoop for a certain amount of time.
Here are a few ideas for decorating areas to represent the different countries of your world. Suggestions for more decorations for kid around the world party ideas can be found on our teen around the world party page.
Mexico - Decorate with...bright tropical colors and giant paper flowers
USA - Patriotic decorations such as bunting in Red, White and Blue
Germany - Think clocks, forests, and Oktoberfest colors
Africa - Large Stuffed African Animals
Antarctica - Paint large square cardboard boxes white and stack to look like giant ice cubes.
China - Decorate with paper lanterns, paper fans – and use lots of the color red!
