It took my son months to decide on the Paw Patrol party theme for his fourth birthday. I was happy with his decision because I love decorating using primary colors to decorate makes things much easier. Since Paw Patrol is so popular right now, party items were easy to find. The majority of my decorations came from Party City with a few items that were DIY projects with supplies from Michaels.
THE DOG BONE CAKE
I like to bake cakes, so I decided to do a large dog bone cake. This is a large cake and will serve a lot of people! It takes three batches of cake mixes which made it easy to offer three different types of cake. Making a dog bone cake is not difficult, just a little time consuming. The only hard part is shaping the cakes.
PAW PATROL FOOD
The food bar was full of healthy primary color food! Chase’s baked blueberry donuts, Marshall’s strawberry and pineapple kabobs, Zuma’s whole wheat cheese- its, Rocky’s salad, Skye’s yogurt melts and for the main entree Rubble’s Build a Burger Bar! I printed off these Paw Patrol water bottle labels for a cute touch.
Red, blue, yellow and green – repeat! This is one of the easiest color schemes to decorate with because you can find anything you need in these bold colors. We decorated with balloons, streamers, signs and store bought decorations.
ACTIVITIES FOR PAW PATROL PARTY
Since it was a bunch of 3 and 4 year old kids, I did not want to plan too many structured activities. So I had a few things to keep them busy and entertained. I set up a craft station where they decorated dog bones with markers, stickers, glue and glitter. We pinned the badge on chase and we threw bones in cups.
But the biggest hit was the Paw Patrol pinata!
This was a fast paced, fun filled Paw Patrol birthday party that all the kids seemed to really enjoy. If you are in a crunch and do not have lots of time to create things, this is a great theme to choose.
