So I am not surprised that you have come here to get all the information on throwing a Cocomelon birthday party for your little one. I have gathered the best Cocomelon party ideas and items to help you throw an adorable party for your little one.
Cocomelon has made quite the viral splash in households everywhere. People have even asked if I nicknamed my son after the character JJ in Cocomelon. Of course, we love the show in this house, but I did not nickname my son after it. Throwing a Cocomelon party, though, could be what one of my kids picks for their next party.
Cocomelon Birthday Party Theme Colors
When planning a party, one of the first steps after determining the theme is picking the colors. For a Cocomelon Party, the colors are the colors of a rainbow. The show is known for its use of rainbows and vibrant colors. So I highly recommend using bright, rainbow colors for your decorations.
Cocomelon Party Invitations
The first impression of any party is the invitation. We want to ensure the details are precise with the date, beginning and end time (don’t need guests overstaying their welcome), location, and information to RSVP. I have included a variety of invitations to kick off your little one’s party!
Cocomelon Pre-made Invitation
One option for invitation is to purchase pre-made ones. These allow you to fill in the specific information for your party. One of the biggest pros to this type of invitation is you don’t have to worry about getting it printed from a store. You can order them, fill out the information, and mail them to your invitees. If you want to add a lot of additional details, the pre-made invites might not be the best option since there is little room for additional information. In that case, I would suggest one of the personalized invites in the next section.
Printable Personalized Invitations
With this type of invitation, you can order the templates and print them at home or your local print store. I love how adorable they are, and you can personalize them to your liking, but printing them can be a hassle. If you have a nice printer at home and card stock paper, you can print them from your home, but if you do not have those accessible, you would need to find a local store or one online that will print and ship to your house.
I usually use my local CVS or Staples. I find this option takes the most time because you have to upload the document to the store’s online printing center and order them to be printed and either pick them up in the store or have them shipped to your house. This option I find to cost the most out of the three options.
Cocomelon Decorations and Supplies:
I love decorating for my kids’ birthdays and have found some adorable decorations for you to display at your party. I also included supplies for your food and drinks!
My kids love balloons; you must admit they add the perfect touch to the party decorations. I would suggest getting a helium tank to blow the balloons up, but I know they will work if you also blow them up. Unfortunately, they will not float, so you must get creative in how you hang them.
You can't go wrong with purchasing a whole balloon kit. This one comes in both 1st and 2nd birthday parties.
I love a balloon arch; the kits make it much easier than it looks. Just know it does take some time.
If this is your first balloon arch, I would give yourself two hours to make it, and I highly recommend a balloon pump. This is the balloon pump I use.
If your party is at your home, you may not feel the need for a banner. However, if you are throwing a party at a park or other location, I highly recommend a banner so your guests know they are in the right spot. You can welcome your guest with this adorable banner. It is customized with your little one’s name and how old they are. You can also pick from 3 different sizes.
I sometimes go all out with DIY centerpieces, but other times I like to keep it simple. Of course, it’s up to you, but if you want to keep it simple, here is a great option.
Plates, Napkins, and Cups
You can’t have a party without food and will need something to serve that food on, so how about these adorable plates and napkins? Of course, if you feel like it may be too much Cocomelon theme, you can always order a solid color for the plates and silverware.
I also like the idea of having rainbow-colored plates to serve the food on. So if you also love that idea, then here is that set.
If you went with one of the sets above, you have a couple of tablecloths, but if you decide to use the rainbow plates and napkins, you would need a tablecloth.
This one matches the plates & napkins set recommended above if you need additional. It is also a great combination with the rainbow plates and napkins.
I love to get large rolls of a solid color and use them for other parties in the future.
Cocomelon Party Activities & Games
Having activities and games for the guest to participate in during the party always adds excellent entertainment. I have held parties where everyone participates in the same activity simultaneously, but I’ve also done stations with different activities for the guest to rotate through.
With younger kids, I have found stations to be the most successful since there are smaller groups at each, and they have more opportunities to participate and stay engaged in the activity longer.
Here are some activities I found that would be great for a Cocomelon Party!
Cocomelon Bingo Cards Game Set
Bingo is a great way to let kids interact and have fun. This themed letter Bingo game has fun, bright colors that children enjoy.
Cocomelon Photo Booth Kit
I'm awful at capturing pictures at my kids' birthday parties, so when I saw these photo props, I thought it would be a great way to get pictures of all the party guests!
I love a piñata at any party with kids. Here is a perfect one for a Cocomelon party!
Bean Bag Toss
Cocomelon and its rainbow color scheme let you create some fun games that are rainbow themed. One that younger kids enjoy is bean bag toss. All you need is rainbow color buckets and bean bags, and have the kids try to toss the color bean bag into the matching color bucket.
Food Ideas for a Cocomelon Party:
I love my food, so when I throw a party, I always think about the food and usually go overboard, but at least it makes me happy! I have made birthday cakes, but I also have ordered them. Honestly, that is up to you and what you want to do. I find cakes can take a long time, so when I know I will be busy and have a lot of other things I want to make for the party, I outsource the cake or cupcakes to a local bakery or use our local grocery store as well.
I always like to plan the food around the party’s theme and thought these ideas would be great for kids and adults to enjoy.
My kids love fruit, so I like to serve fruit at a party. And why not serve it looking like a rainbow? Nourish and Fete shares a great fruit rainbow you could replicate for your party.
You can’t have a party without beverages, so why not serve some rainbow water?
It isn’t as simple as popping a bag of popcorn, but the outcome is worth it! So for a Cocomelon party, why not serve some rainbow popcorn?
If you are like me and want to try to sneak some veggies into your kid’s day or please the other parents, then serve some rainbow veggie pizza!
Cocomelon Themed Cake
The cake is my favorite part of a party! A cake topper is an excellent addition if you plan to decorate your cake or even get a store-bought one.
This Cocomelon topper is perfect for your cake.
Here are some fantastic ideas if you want to hire someone to make the cake. Just give the picture to your bakery and let them work their magic. If these cakes are something you feel you can make, then props to you; that is extremely impressive. Unfortunately, I don’t have that skill set, so I must leave it to the experts.
Cocomelon Gift Ideas
I always love to purchase a gift that is the theme of my kid’s party. Then, throughout the year, as they play with it or we read a book about that theme, we can always share memories of the party.
An interactive learning toy for a toddler. The doll includes over 50 phrases to encourage children to learn their letters, numbers, and colors.
Dress the Part for a Cocomelon Party
I love dressing the entire family up for the party theme. The hubby luckily goes with the flow for things, so it turns out pretty cute when we are all dressed up in matching shirts. For this Cocomelon theme, you can have the birthday kiddo dress up, or you can dress up the whole family.
This is an adorable outfit for a little girl.
I'm obsessed with suspenders for little boys, so this outfit is a favorite of mine!
If you are looking for t-shirts for the whole family, here you go!
Party Favors for a Cocomelon Party
Giving out party favors is up to you. The main focus of your Cocomelon party is celebrating your little one and the guest enjoying themselves. As long as everyone is having a good time, that’s your primary focus. A party favor will be a bonus! Here are some great ideas if you decide to go with a favor.
If you want to make your favors and all you need is a bag, here are some cute Cocomelon bags for you!
DIY Cocomelon Party Favor Ideas
I like to add my personal touch to party favors. When I have time, I will do a DIY party favor.
I enjoy making edible treats. For a Cocomelon party, Rainbow Rice Krispie Treats would be adorable.
Another option is getting bubbles, which every kid loves, and adding a Thank You label to them. You can make your own or print this out (Cocomelon Thank You Label) and add it to a small container of bubbles. These make it easy to cover up the logo with your label.
Thank You Cards for a Cocomelon Party:
During the party, I typically ask a relative to write in a notebook who gave a gift and what they gave so I can write a thank you after the party. I usually write the thank you since my kids are still young, but I have them sign the card with some help. I also like to let them color the envelope to add a little something special to it.
If you want a blank thank you card that you can personalize, this is rainbow colors, so it would be great for a Cocomelon party.
If you are looking for a thank you with a Cocomelon theme, this might be the one for you. This is a digital download, so you will either have to print at home or order from a print shop like Staples or CVS.
I hope all these fantastic ideas help you with your Cocomelon birthday party!
