Why does everything have to be a theme? Aren't themes over done? I think the old fashioned games in birthday parties are the most fun. Pinatas, pin the tail on the donkey...one birthday party I took my kids to was around halloween time, the mother got each of the guest a little pumpkin to carve or paint. What a mess, but what a blast! 3 year olds have more fun at a birthday when it is fun-not because some cartoon character is plastered on every peice of decoration. Bean bag toss, is good. You can buy little rubber ducks, put them in a kiddie pool and have the kids pick one, and if one of them as a P (or any letter the your kids' name starts with) on the bottom, they win a prize, and can take home the duck. Put the candy in a blown up balloon with thier names on them.
