Toy Story Party Ideas

Toy Story has been a favorite for kids for such a long time now. When Pixar released the 1995 Toy Story film, it became an instant classic as it was the first full-length computer-generated animation movie. It is a beloved tale for kids since then, and as Toy Story 4 was out in 2019, the franchise is still gaining a new generation of fans. If you’re a parent, you may have grown up with Toy Story.

If it is your child’s favorite movie, you can easily make it a theme for their next birthday. Here are some brilliant ideas to help you out:

3. For Mom and Dad

As parents and hosts of the party, you may want to stay on theme! Here are some ideas on what to wear, from costumes to casual attire:

  • Woody and Jessie – Say “Howdy, partner?” while disguising as Woody and Jessie for your kid’s birthday! This is a great idea if you’re leaning more on the Western cowboy aesthetic for the party.
  • Buzz and Bo Peep – Mom would look great serving cookies as Bo Peep, and Dad would make a great narrator for the storytelling part of the party as Buzz 
  • Mr. and Mrs. Potato head – Keep it casual and dress up in Mr. and Mrs. Potato head! It’s also a great couple of shirts to wear outside.
  • Pizza Planet guys – Pretend that you’re there to bring pizza for everyone! Get a red one for mommy and a black one for daddy.

Activities

Kids are full of energy, and after they ate loads of food, cupcakes, and sweets, they have built-up energy for fun and play. Keep them busy with these activities:

Make your Own Forky

Forky is a beloved new character from Toy Story 4, and it’s so easy to make your own. Set up a craft table with this Forky DIY set and some glue, then let the kids get creative! Kids can have fun making their own Forky while learning how to share and socialize.

Pin the Tail on Bullseye

Put a Toy Story spin on the classic Pin the Tail party game by using this Bullseye party set. It comes with lots of tail stickers enough for your guests and eye masks for blindfolds, so you don’t have to provide one anymore. Give the winner a Woody toy or a Toy Story Barbie

Mr. Potato Head Relay Game

This is a super fun relay game that kids of all ages can enjoy. Split up the guests into teams of four and have the Mr. Potato heads (without their parts) sitting on a chair at the end of the backyard. Each team will have with them a box with the parts of Mr. Potato head – the eyes, arms, teeth, nose, hat, feet, and mustache. The guests would form a line at the other end, and each team member had to take one piece of Mr. Potato Head and run over to attach the parts, then run back to tag the next team member to go. The first team that finishes fastest wins! Give the members of the winning team an original slinky box each!

Rex Piñata

Use a green dinosaur piñata inspired by Rex and fill it with Toy Story Candy Mix piñata fillers. With these, your party is set to be a blast!
