Party Ideas For Triplets
Triplets are three children born at the same time to the same mother. If you’re parents of multiples, you know first-hand how difficult it is to care for three kids who are look alike. Planning a party is no different. Here we share three party ideas for triplets.
- Three Peas in a Pod :
Three peas in a pod is said when three people or things are very similar to each other. For example, “My brothers and I are the three peas in a pod, we three like same things”.
For a party theme with this idea, we need to have colour scheme similar to peas: Decorate the party with two different shades of green - light and dark combination of greens would go with the theme. Throw in splashes of white and pink (pea flowers).
Decorate the table with a white table cloth and use green flatware and plates or a green table cloth with white and pink cups, plates, napkins and flatware. A polka dotted white, light green or dark green table cloth can be used. A white tablecloth with green circle confetti spread on the table would look more look nice.
For decoration of the room, Helium or regular balloons in 2 shades of green can be used - make bunches of 3 light green balloons (the peas) surrounded by darker green balloons.
Keep cute candies which represents peas and are round in shapes, order a birthday cake customized with a three pea in a pod which will resemble the theme.
Dress up the three of your kids with shades of white and green. (All three of them should look alike).
The vivid colours and fun design will greet all of your party guests as they enter. Your guest(s) of honour will adore their Three Peas in a Pod celebration when you choose this party decoration.
- Cartoon characters as chipmunks:
The group consists of three animated chipmunks: one as the mischievous troublemaker who is the star of the group; Second as the tall, bespectacled intellectual; and Third as the chubby, impressionable sweetheart.
For this Party theme, prepare chipmunks invitation cards first. Purchase some chipmunks themed Balloons. Decorate your party area with some red, blue and green coloured balloons to match the chipmunks sweaters. Make a bowl of Chipmunk Chips with some clever labelling and dried bananas.
Chipmunks party would be incomplete without some acorns! Prepare peanut butter chocolate acorn cookies. Add nachos with cheese, popcorn, cotton candy and cheese balls in the snack list for party. Dress-up the three of your kids with red, blue and green coloured shirts or sweaters which would perfectly go with the chipmunks theme.
You can also order a cake with a customized chipmunks’ picture.
- Car and Truck theme:
For this theme to work out well, design your invitations to look like license plates, using your home ‘state’ as the state and your child's name as the license plate ‘number’. Write your party details on the back or make it into a top-fold card and write your party details inside.
Set out a toy race track and matchbook cars on one of the tables in the party area. Use sidewalk chalk to draw a road on your driveway. Allow your guests to draw cars, trucks, trees and signs on the road during the party.
You can also order street barriers, a ‘Road Closed’ sign, a ‘Detour’ sign or orange traffic cones that you can set out during the party.
Create a large car or truck from an empty appliance box. Use a knife to cut out a few windows, and paint the box in your child's favourite colour. Cut out four equally-sized circles from a sheet of cardboard, spray-paint them black and glue them onto the sides of the box to create wheels.
Place a plain, white, disposable tablecloth on the floor of the party area or across a table. Use black markers to draw roads going in different directions across the tablecloth. Add stop signs, yield signs, traffic lights etc., using bright-colouring markers. Set a number of toy cars and trucks on the road and allow your guests to play with them during the party.
Get creative with your party food by serving theme-specific treats. For a Car & Truck Party, consider using car or truck-shaped cookie cutters to cut out cookies, sandwiches and cheese slices. You can also prepare red, yellow and green gummy candies to make additional 'traffic light' snacks.
Serve a pasta salad made from roselle pasta, which resemble wheels. Spread cream cheese tinted green with food colouring on saltine crackers. Write the name of different states on top in white decorator icing to resemble highway signs.
These are some funny and innovative ideas for party for triplets. It is actually difficult to manage triplets for parents but with creative and innovative ideas, the parties can be real fun.
