Princess Birthday Party Ideas

by Aubrey on February 13, 2013

Princess PartyBack in December my daughter turned four and life is ALL about Princesses for her right now.  So we decided to have a Princess Birthday Party!  We were lucky to have a friend that has a job being Cinderella at Princess Parties, so she was able to come.  This party can be done without a Princess too, but it was sure fun to have her come.    We’ve done a couple of scavenger hunt birthday parties and have found they are a fun way to keep kids entertained and involved.  The scavenger hunt was to find Cinderella’s glass slipper.  My hubby is amazing at putting the clues together, he is quite the poet.  :-)  Catch me after the jump for all the details and clues.

Princess Scavenger Hunt


Cinderella at the door

We began by having Cinderella come to the door and read this:

I’ve lost my glass slipper,
What shall we do?
We need to find it,
To help true love’s kiss come true.


Off on a scavenger hunt we go,
Adventures and games that you may know.
A few rules first before we start,
Listen real close then we’ll depart.


 There will be seven clues on our journey to find the glass slipper.  There will be games and activities on the way.  All princesses must stay together. The clue will be read and everyone will work together to guess the Disney Princess and uncover the clue.


First Clue:

With the jewels all shiny and bright,
I will be all ready for the big night.
We will make one of these for our head.
Prince Phillip and the Fairies love these, they said.

Name the Princess   – Aurora (Sleeping Beauty)

What are we making? -  The girls decorated little tiara’s with stickers that I found in the party section at Walmart.making tiaras

Second Clue:

Now that the crowns are complete,
We are ready for something real neat.
Off with Aladdin we run,
To find the Magic Carpet of fun.
Stories await us when we’ve arrived
And make-up will be applied.

 Name the Princess - Jasmine

What are we doing?  We went to a rug in the toy room and I read the girls Sleeping Beauty while Cinderella applied sparkly eyeshadow on the girls.story and make up time

Third Clue:

With Prince Eric we go to the sea of balls,
To find a picture of the Princess who calls.
She’s a mermaid with a voice,
Who had to make a choice,
Between living in the sea or on land.

 Name the Princess - Ariel

What are we doing? - We have a Princess ball pit so the girls had to go in the ball pit and find a ball that had an Ariel sticker on it.Princess balls

Fourth Clue:

We have found Ariel in the sea.
So we wonder what the next clue will be.
With so much fun to be had,
You are sure to be glad,
To solve a ‘puzzle’ with the Beast’s love and her friends.

 Name the Princess – Bell

What are we doing? - We divided the girls up into groups of three and each group put together a Princess puzzle that I got at the dollar store.

Fifth Clue:

By now you probably can’t wait,
To hear the next clue at any rate.
With a pumpkin and mice in a trance.
This Princess is late for the dance.
 Name the Princess - Cinderella

What are we doing?  Dance with Cinderella to some Princess music.dancing

Sixth Clue:

What fun to dance all around.
Next we are going to take some time with a crayon.
This Princess with her long hair loves to paint,
And hits Flynn Ryder so hard that he faints.

Name the Princess - Rapunzel

What are we doing?  Color a Princess picture.  I just got a Cinderella coloring book and the girls each colored a picture to take home.

Seventh Clue:  

This Princess must kiss Naveen.
The only problem is that he is green.
Lay a smacker on lips,
And there won’t be any tricks.
A Prince you will have at last.

Name the Princess - Tiana

What are we doing?  We played pin the kiss on the frog.kissing frog

lips on the frogEighth Clue

Tired and ready for a treat.
There is cake and ice cream that is ready to eat.
Let’s have some right now
And find the slipper somehow
When our bellies are no longer grumbling.

After they found Cinderella’s slipper underneath the table we celebrated by eating cake and ice cream.castle cake

I made this castle cake out of a mold that I bought at Michael’s.

This birthday girl was beaming the whole party.  It was so magical!  Like I said, you don’t have to have a Princess come to the party, it could easily be modified!

That looks so fun. I think we have a couple years before a princess party, but I love the activity/scavenger hunt ideas.


Celeste O February 13, 2013 at 3:05 pm

Thanks for some great ideas for activities to do. My daughter is turning 6 and I needed to find some things for the girls to do.


Aubrey February 16, 2013 at 3:02 pm

You’re welcome! I hope that her party goes well!


Skyler February 13, 2013 at 8:51 pm

This may be the cutest thing I’ve ever seen! Also, I’d love to dress up as Cinderella and go to birthday parties!


Aubrey February 16, 2013 at 3:01 pm

Thanks! I know, wouldn’t it be fun??


Mel February 14, 2013 at 11:11 am

Absolutely lovely ideas. Looks like this was such a fun party. I know my daughter and her friends would love this :-) Pin the kiss on the frog – cute!



Aubrey February 16, 2013 at 3:01 pm

Thanks it was a lot of fun! You’ll have to share some pics if you do it for your daughter. :-)

My two great grandaughters are turning 3 and 4 March 2 and 30 so I’m planning a princess party for them am making a Princess Castle cake and Princess dresses for them to wear also my great grand son will be 6 on March 29 plan on making him a race car driver with a race car cake. The party will be the middle of March for all of them. I love the idea of the princess scavenger hunt any ideas on how to incorperate both ideas into the same party?


Aubrey February 20, 2013 at 3:53 pm

Wow, sounds like it will be a fun party!! Instead of using all the clues that I did, you could incorporate some race car activities into the scavenger hunt. Or if there are enough kids you could do a separate scavenger hunt for the boys. Or you could do the scavenger hunt and then do a race car piñata or something different that all the kids will enjoy. Hmmm…I hope those suggestions help! Good luck! I’d love to hear how it goes and see some pictures!


Richa February 22, 2013 at 1:24 am

Amazing theme and I loved the pictures too. Everyone is looking perfect.. This is something beautiful.. :)

Great work Aubrey :)

That’s a great princess party idea! I love the scavenger hunt idea and will definitely be trying to add a faucet of it to my parties as well! Thanks!


Aubrey April 6, 2013 at 10:47 pm

You’re welcome! I’d love to hear how your party turns out. Good Luck!


Collette April 11, 2013 at 6:54 pm

What a great idea. I saw the scavenger hunt idea somewhere else but there wasn’t any clues with it and so I searched and found yours! THANK YOU for the ideas…I’m sooo not creative when it comes to things like this but I have two very princess little girls and my 2nd turns 4 in a couple weeks. She has requested a Sleeping Beauty party and I thought a scavenger hunt would go perfectly to find Prince Phillip’s kiss at the end. Will have to modify a bit but I hope you don’t mind if I used a lot of your ideas!! Thanks again! So glad there are others out there that are more creative than I am!


Aubrey April 12, 2013 at 2:43 pm

You’re welcome! I hope that you have a great party!


Sallyann May 26, 2013 at 11:08 pm

Wow! Thank you for sharing your awesome party details! I love your ideas and can’t wait to use some of them for my daughter’s upcoming 4th birthday!


kim brown June 13, 2013 at 12:09 am

Cute party, I am having a princess tea party for grandaughters visiting for the weekend. The scavenger hunt is a great idea!


Iryna July 5, 2013 at 7:52 pm

What a great birthday party! And great activities. My daughter is 3 and is also all about Princess. But most of our friends are boys. So I plan to do craft of magical wand with them, some stretching, face painting and balloon animals. But if later on she is till in Princess mood, and we have more girls around, I would definitely use some of your ideas. Thanks for posting!


Creative Printables July 11, 2013 at 9:08 am

Wow, what a beautiful party – all the girls look so gorgeous!


c October 15, 2013 at 3:08 pm

Thanks for a really cute idea! I plan to use the ideas for my daughters 4th birthday party.


Jill November 2, 2013 at 8:16 pm

Thanks so much for such a great idea and riddle! I just finished my 4 year old’s party and it was sooooo much fun. I had to change 2 activities, because I couldn’t find tiaras to decorate and I didn’t have a ball pit, but everything still worked out great! Thanks again!!


Aubrey November 6, 2013 at 10:23 am

I’m so happy to hear it was a success! Thank you for sharing!


Jenny December 16, 2013 at 10:39 am

Thank you for sharing this cute idea! My baby girl turns 4 on Jan.1st and I am trying to plan some things now (in all the crazy Christmas rush) . My daughter has two or three boys she wants to invite to her party as well. Any ideas how i could modify a little for the 3 boys that will be coming to her “Princess” scavenger hunt party? Thank you for any advice or ideas!


Aubrey December 18, 2013 at 11:35 am

You’re welcome! Good luck with the planning, this is a busy time to be planning a party! :-) The boys could dress up like a prince and for each activity just have something extra for them. Decorating crowns instead of a tiara, find a puzzle the boys would enjoy, but since they are only 4, some of the other actives might be just as fun for them. Good luck!


Marilyn January 18, 2014 at 4:55 pm

I’m helping with a party for my granddaughter turning three. What a splendid idea! This will be so much fun.


Angie February 19, 2014 at 9:55 am

Wow – what an amazing idea! I love the thought of a scavenger hunt – my daughter is turning 6 this year and still loves all things princess. btw, your cake turned out great – so pretty!


Aubrey February 19, 2014 at 3:26 pm

Thank you Angie!


Heather May 7, 2014 at 3:00 pm

My daughter is turning 4 and wants a princess party. I have been searching all over the web for ideas. Your party with the scavenger hunt and clues is the BEST! Thank you so much for sharing (and I will be using some of your clues!).


Aubrey May 14, 2014 at 10:28 am

Thank you! I hope you have a fun party!
