Tired of the same old bounce house and birthday cake routine? Go out on a party-throwing limb this year and do something new for your kiddo’s big day. Whether it’s dueling with lightsabers for a Rogue One party or putting on crazy hair to hang with the Trolls, here’s what’s sure to be hot (and what’s just plain fun) in kids birthday parties for 2017.

Emoji Party

Do emojis make your kids go :-)? The pros over at Spaceships and Laserbeams have all the inspiration you need to throw your little guy or gal a party that'll make everyone in attendance want to go completely emoji-crazy. Whether they're playing "Pin the Face on the Emoji" or feasting on emoji-faced pizza, your kids (and you, too) will have a blast with this one. 😉
