Skating Theme

Recommended for ages 6 - 14

 

 

Ice Skates

 


 

Invitations

Roll into Stationery Designs, etc. for invitations featuring designs appropriate for a roller blading party, including roller blades, kneepads, helmets, roadblocks, and ramps or for the cold weather party, ice skates, hats and mittens.

Decorations

Decorate your party area with lots of festive accessories: balloons, garlands, streamers, confetti, noisemakers, and a Happy Birthday sign. To tie in the theme of the party, use outgrown roller blades as table centerpieces to hold flowers and/or balloons. Along with the decorations, have a CD player on hand to pipe in rock-’n-roll music perfect for roller blading to.

Activities

The type of skating games and activities played will depend on the abilities and skill levels of the majority of partygoers. For amateur skaters, you can use chalk to draw a silly, looping, fun-to-follow course on the pavement. For more advanced rollerbladers, set up a series of ramps of varying heights for them to navigate. Hold contests to see who can jump the furthest, roller blade backwards the longest, etc. To avoid injury, make sure that every guest is wearing his or her helmets, kneepads, and elbow pads properly. Don’t forget to use highly visible traffic cones, ropes, or large blocks to cordon off the area where rollerbladers will be playing!

 

Snacks

Anything round will tie in with this party’s theme: a pizza pie, small wheels of cheese with Ritz crackers, Mallomar cookies, etc. Wheel out the snacks on a serving cart, and let the munching begin!

 

Cake

A rollerblading party calls for a cake in the shape of a roller blade. Start out with a rectangular cake, then carefully cut it into the shape of the skate. Use licorice strings as ties, and line up miniature chocolate doughnuts along the bottom for the wheels. Then watch guests come skating ‘round for more!

 

Goody Bags

For the age group of this party, load goody bags with such items as sour candies; decorative pencils, erasers, and notepads; stickers and rubber stamps; and comic books. Place it all in paper bags decorated with drawings of rollerblading images created by your child.

 

Thank-you’s

Match your thank-you notes to your invitation, or choose a complementary design. Teach your child good manners by allowing him or her to sign their name to each note. Remember to mention what the gift was that you’re thanking the person for -- and how much your child enjoyed it!
