Once feared by older generations, rock today is a genre of music that is revered by young and old alike. If yours is a family that loves rock ‘n’ roll, you will enjoy planning a rock star-themed birthday party just as much as the birthday boy or girl will enjoy the party itself. Incorporate decorations, invitations, food, crafts and games that all pertain to rock ‘n’ roll.
VIP Pass Party Invitations
Send out party invitations in the form of a backstage pass. Take a digital photo of the birthday boy or girl as a rock star. Create a credit card-size invitation on your computer. Include the words “VIP All Access Pass,” the digital photo and the party information. Place the VIP pass party invitations in vinyl card holders with neck chains.
Turn ordinary cupcakes into microphones, using ice cream cones, sprinkles and licorice. Fill colored ice cream cones partway with whipped cream. Remove cupcake papers and set the cupcakes in the openings of the cones so they rest at the top, like the head of a microphone. Frost the cupcakes and cover them in silver cake sprinkles or gold sanding sugar. Poke licorice laces in the sides of the cones, near the bottoms, for the microphone cords.
Every little rock star needs a tie-dyed shirt. Keep the kids busy with a T-shirt tie-dying craft table. Ask them all to bring a T-shirt or tank top to tie-dye. Set up a tie-dye table where kids can pleat, twist, tie and dye their shirts. Wash and dry the shirts, and the kids can take them home by the end of the party.
Name That Tune
A rock ‘n’ roll-related game to play at a rock star birthday party is Name That Tune. Burn a CD with 20 to 25 of the birthday boy’s or girl’s favorite rock songs. Divide the guests into teams and give each team a bell. Play just a blip of a song. If a team guesses the song, they receive 10 points. If they’re wrong, the other team can guess or pass. Play a bit more of the song and give the teams time to deliberate. If they don’t know or guess wrong, they both lose 5 points. If they pass, play a bit more of the song for the teams to guess. Keep on until the song is identified. Give prizes to the winning team.
