12 Easy Unicorn Birthday Party Ideas
Whether you’re hosting a birthday party, play date, or just a get-together, these unicorn birthday party ideas will help make it a hit with your little ones!
Unicorn Party Decorations
Don’t over-complicate the decor. Buy a few kits or key decor pieces and create a focal point. We always fill the bookcases behind our dining table with gifts (yes, the gifts can be decor, too!) and create a focal point for photos.
Print a unicorn-themed “Happy Birthday” banner or hang a simple garland. Use a chalkboard or whiteboard to make a sign highlighting the child’s birthday number.
Unicorn Birthday Invitations
Buy invites or download and print free unicorn invitations (how cute is this colorful unicorn set?!). If you want to keep it really simple, skip the printing. Simply download the filled-out invite image and text the picture to the guests.
Unicorn Party Activities
When you have a bunch of little girls at your house, you’re going to want some things to keep them entertained.
Another fun activity – and a party classic – kids will love bursting a candy-filled unicorn pinata. Swinging at the unicorn piñata was a huge “hit” (pun intended *wink*) at my daughter’s party.
No party is complete without a couple games to enjoy. This free printable roll-a-unicorn game challenges kids to make their own magical creature. My daughter loves being crafty and creative, so this was a perfect choice for her 6th birthday.
But, if you want something that doesn’t require any cutting beforehand, play a pin the horn on unicorn game. Grab it online, at your local party, download a printable version, or make your own (here is an example of a DIY pin the dot on the ladybug game for inspiration).
If you like to make your own cake, you can make this magically delicious (and simple!) chocolate ganache covered cake topped with fresh fruit and powdered sugar.
Unicorns are all about bright colors, sprinkles, and rainbows so a simple Funfetti cake mix with lots of colorful sprinkles would be a great option, too! Add a “Happy Birthday” unicorn cake topper to make it complete.
