Tell A Friend
guests will fly high in the sky with fun during your Airplane themed
the invitations make an airline ticket for each guest.
The airlines can be “The Name of the Birthday Child
Airlines”, the passenger can be the invited guest, the destination
can be the address of the party, the flight departure date can be the
date of the party, the time of departure can be the time the party
starts, and the time of arrival can be when the party is over.
For the RSVP you can ask the guest to confirm their flight
status by a certain date with your phone number.
These can be printed on gray card stock to look more realistic.
can be as simple as making paper airplanes and blowing up inflatable
airplanes, available at dollar stores, and hanging them around the
house. Place a white plastic or paper table cloth on a large table and
outline it with blue Christmas lights.
Draw a dotted line down the middle and this will be great
runways for the guests to have their planes take off.
boxed lunches including a sandwich (peanut butter and jelly or lunch
meat), a piece of fruit, a small bag of carrots and a small candy bar
will make the guests fell like they are on a real airplane.
You can also offer small bags of peanuts or pretzels.
each guest make a paper airplane.
Depending on their age you can allow them to create their own,
follow a pattern or have them pre-made for each guest.
Have various contests with the paper airplanes including
furthest flight, highest flight, most flips, largest flip, best crash,
closest to a target, shortest flight, furthest from a target,
straightest flight, fastest flight, slowest flight, and lowest flight.
This should allow each guest to win a prize.
A great hint for a piñata is to stuff it with enough small
bags filled with candy for each guest so everyone will be able to grab
the Pilot in the Plane
or copy a picture of an airplane on a large sheer of paper (you can
also find a poster with a picture of an airplane for this game). Draw
a dotted circle that shows where the pilot should sit.
Make a pilot for each child with a different number or name on
the back. This can be a
picture of the birthday child’s face of a picture from a magazine.
Using double face tape, blindfold one guest at a time, spin
them around and have them try to place the pilot in the correct
location. The guest
closest is the winner.
a large container with packing peanuts for the clouds (a baby pool, a
plastic sandbox, a large bowl). Place
enough diecast airplanes in the container for each guest.
Allow each guest to take a turn finding one airplane. You can time them to see who found the plane the fastest.
This airplane can go home with them inside their goody bag.
one plain paper plate per guest, come up with different destinations
for an airplane to land (different cities, countries, continents…)
and write it one on each plate. Write
a complete list of these on separate sheets of paper and place them
inside a hat or bag. Play music and have the guests walk around in a circle
stepping in the paper plates until the music stops.
Pull one location from the list you have. The guest who is on the location can take their paper plate
and go to their destination to retrieve their goody bag. Continue until all the guests have left for their
Diecast airplanes, snap together airplanes (available from Oriental Trading), airplane stickers, and airhead candy will make a great treat for the guests to take home. Some airlines may also provide wings for each guest if you call ahead and ask.
