Kids Birthday Party Ideas for Fall


If you’re at a loss for ideas  for your kid’s birthday party, consider taking inspiration from the changing seasons and plan a fall themed celebration! With the colourful fallen leaves, barrells of pumpkins outside the grocery store, and crisp, shiny apples, fall provides a beautiful backdrop for any event. Opting for a seasonally-themed birthday party also makes decorating and planning easier; you won’t have to look far for fall-themed decorations, food, and party supplies.



To jog your creativity, here is a list of fun and creative fall kids birthday party ideas for the autumn season.

Take decor inspiration from nature.

Try to stick with an autumnal colour palette when buying decorations and don’t be afraid to employ real aspects of nature as your decor. For example, make use of the fallen pinecones, acorns, and leaves - not only are they free of cost and abundant, they make for beautiful party decor.

Murder mystery game.

Many of us have attended a murder mystery themed party in which guests have to uncover a set of clues in order to solve the mystery and determine who is guilty. If you’re feeling creative, you can plan a simpler, more age-appropriate version for your guests by setting up clues and riddles to lead them to solving the crime. If your party is close to Halloween, have your guests dress up in costume and add some spooky treats and decorations to go along with the mystery.

Candy apple decorating.

Apples are synonymous with fall, so why not organize a candy or caramel apple decorating station. Your guests can use melted chocolate, caramel, maple syrup,  marshmallows, icing, candy, and various other sugary treats to create a masterpiece that they can take home with them.

Pumpkin carving.

Kids love getting their hands dirty, so organizing a pumpkin carving activity (miniature pumpkins tend to be best for children)  is sure to be enjoyable. Depending on the age group, you may want to opt for pumpkin decorating (with markers or paint) to avoid any unwanted injuries. You can hand out prizes for the scariest, funniest, and most creative pumpkins at the end of the activity.

Pin the nose on the scarecrow.

A creative take on the infamous “Pin the Tail on the Donkey” game, simply blindfold your party guests, spin them around, and have them attempt to pin the nose on a scarecrow. The unique twist on the classic game is sure to inspire lots of enjoyment and laughter amongst your guests.

Chocolate Tales activities.

Our expertly designed birthday parties combine chocolate with arts and crafts and are the perfect addition to any celebration. We offer a variety of activities in accordance with your party’s age group from chocolate finger painting, marshmallow decorating to chocolate lava cake making. Plus, we provide the set-up, chocolatier entertainment, gift boxes and more!
