This police officer birthday party was a fun way to celebrate a special Birthday Boy while also teaching kids about true super heroes!
Many party supply stores offer police party decorations, including adorable cardboard police cars that are super easy to assemble. The flashing blue light, purchased at Oriental Trading Company, was a huge hit!
The Birthday Boy was allowed to open one present before the party started, so that he could wear his “official” police officer’s uniform during the party. Melissa and Doug brand costumes are the best, in my opinion.
We found these food tent cards on Etsy, which added to the fun. We served:
Police Dogs – Hot dogs
Police Badges – Potato chips
Police Batons – Pretzel sticks
Traffic Lights – Mini fruit kabobs with strawberry, pineapple, and green grape
Jail Cell Dip – Cheese dip
Crime Fighting Chips – Tortilla chips
Coffee Break – We placed this one by the coffee maker, for the parents
Donut Break – Can’t have a police party without donuts!
Fun with Props
The photo props were arranged in a large flower vase, to serve as part of the decorations and, later, made for some fun photographs of the guests.
Guests were sent home with favor bags, filled with plastic police figures, Hot Wheels police vehicles, miniature water guns, police badges, miniature blue glow swords, blue and white lollipops, and a cardboard police car box filled with blue and yellow candies.
