Plan a fun birthday party for your 4-year-old girl.

Planning a 4-year-old girl's birthday party need not be stressful or expensive. Select an approach that your 4-year-old will like and that fits her personality. A very active child might like something outdoors with a lot of play, while a quieter child might like a small, simple gathering with friends.

Themed Birthday Parties

Themed parties for girls

Choose a theme based on the birthday girl's favorite things. For instance, if your daughter loves the story of Peter Pan or wants to grow up to be an astronaut, then a Peter Pan or space themed birthday party would work well. Incorporate the theme into everything from the decorations to the cake and the entertainment.


Creative Locations

Zoos can be a great place for a party

Many restaurants offer parents the opportunity to book a room or the entire restaurant to host a birthday party. Choose a restaurant that would be appropriate for a four year old girl, such as a place that has an outdoor play area or even outdoor tables you could use in clear weather. If your 4-year-old girl has a favorite place, like the zoo, consider hosting your party at a public area of the zoo. Hand out a gift to each child that attends, like a tiger striped bracelet or tiny stuffed animal toys.


Costumed Characters

Costumed characters

A fun birthday party for a four year old girl could include a silly costumed character. Some favorites with little girls include Snoopy or Clifford the Big Red Dog. It is important to reserve a costume well in advance of the date of the party to ensure that it is available to you. As an alternative to renting a costume and forcing one of you older children to play the role, consider hiring a professional entertainer for you little girl's party.


Fun Birthday Games

Games bring life to any kids party

Choose one or more games for birthday party guests to play. A 4-year-old girl and her friends will love the old standards like Pin the Tail on the Donkey or Simon Says, or you could do something more energetic like hanging up a candy or toy filled pinata for the children to take a whack at. The birthday girl herself should get the first go at it. Whatever game you choose, make sure it is appropriate for a 4-year-old and the other children at the party.
