Activities: Pizza Birthday Party Ideas

These are the birthday party activities for children, tweens, and teens for a fun birthday party or group activity! Pick your favorite birthday party activities to go along with your party theme!


Kids can take home a fun activity and a birthday party gift. Before the party, buy T-shirts (I’ve used Hanes T-shirts in a package or bought them for as little as $2 each at craft stores) and wash and dry them. Set out fabric markers and fabric paints to decorate the shirts with. Iron-on letters come in a variety of styles. Combine various styles to spell out their name or a funny saying. Tip: Place large grocery sacks, cardboard, or poster boards inside the shirt to keep the paint from bleeding to the back. Teens and Tweens have a great time making and wearing these shirts.


It is a fun activity for birthday sleepovers or extended parties where the kids can print out photos. Make a scrapbook for each partygoer. Set out scrapbooking supplies for them to make a page about their friends and the party. Add pizza stickers too!
