Many kids choose a theme for their parties, often selecting a favorite TV characters, superheroes or even general themes like princesses or dinosaurs. These party themes are a lot of fun, but aren't the only options for a great birthday bash. In fact, Karol Ladd wrote a whole book full of ideas that aren't just fun, but also tie in Christian values. It's called Parties with a Purpose: Sharing God's Love Through Fantastically Fun Parties.
The book comes with a wide variety of party themes that are simple to put together, friendly to a family or church budget and offer tons of fun to both boys and girls. Each theme is designed around a biblical story, so every party offers entertainment while spreading the word about Christian values. Wouldn't it be nice to see kids having fun with a Noah's Ark theme rather than playing out a scene from a violent children's cartoon?
Some of the themes included in Parties with a Purpose are: The Glad Scientist, Prince and Princess Party, Time for Tea and Wet and Wild Water Party. There are so many different ideas that are appropriate for children from 2 to 15, you can host amazing parties for years, making it a great party planning resource for parents and Sunday school teachers.
