Almost every little girl requests a princess party at least once in their life! And what better way to celebrate and decorate than downloading our FREE Disney Princess Party Pack printables! You’ll be able to get the cutest princess look with our free prints / decor and guests will have a magical time playing all the games and activities we have in store. Below are 10 of our favorite ideas for creating a memorable party that will make your little princess feel special!
1) WELCOME TO THE ROYAL BALL
Print our free door sign and get guests excited before they even walk through the door! We love setting the tone for parties and one of the fastest and easiest ways to do that is decorating the door. Our 16×20” door signs are cheap to print (we print them off as posters from our local print shop for $10), easy to style (add a few balloons or a garland) and the perfect way to get guests excited for a magical time.
2) PARTY BACKDROP + PHOTO OP
We LOVE party backdrops. They’re cheap and make a big wow statement! We print our huge 36” x 48” backdrop at our local print shop as a blueprint/engineer print for only $5. But it’s not just a decoration — play our “I Spy” game and then put out some crayons or washable markers for guests to color away! This makes a great welcoming activity as your waiting for all the guests to arrive and also makes a great filler activity if a child finishes their craft before it’s time to move onto the next activity.
3) TABLE DECOR
We have FREE printable signs for:
- Royal Punch
- Make Princess Charms
- Make Princess Jewelry
- Decorate a Princess Cupcake
Print these off on regular 8.5×11” paper and cut into 4×6”. We love our Ikea Tolsby plastic frames and use them for EVERY party/celebration but sadly they don’t make them anymore. However, these Ikea Fiestad frames are just as minimal and only 99¢! When we need to purchase more in the future, those will be the ones we grab. We like to keep 10-20 simple white tabletop frames on hand at all times for an easy way to add a pop of color to party/celebration tables.
4) GAME – MUSICAL PRINCESSES
This game is a mix of musical chairs and a cake walk. First print and then cut out the pieces. Laminate them to make them more sturdy and reusable. Place the princess faces in a circle on the floor and the names inside a bowl. Have the children stand on any princess they choose, start playing any upbeat Disney songs and tell the kids to dance until the music stops. Once it stops, draw a name, the child standing on that name is out. Last childing standing WINS! If you’re afraid some children might cry when they’re out, give each kid a little prize/treat when they get picked. That way everyone’s a winner!
- FREE Musical Princesses prints
- Laminator + laminating sheets (optional)
- Music played on a loud speaker (we love our Alexa Echo Dot)
5) GAME – MISSING PRINCESS
Using the same game pieces from Musical Princesses, hide all the princess faces in the rooms you don’t mind guests going in. Divide the princess names evenly between the children and tell them to go find their princess(es).
6) GAME – PRINCESS MATCH
This game doesn’t really work in a group but I figured I’d add it because my 2 year old LOVES playing this and I love getting multiple use out of stuff. Using the same game pieces from Musical Princesses, place all the faces down and have the child match the names to the princess. To make it harder, put all the pieces upside down and play like a normal matching game. (You could also make a bunch of these and put them in the guests take-home goody bag).
7) ACTIVITY – SHRINKY DINK CHARMS
We love blank Shrinky Dink paper around here! We love making DIY keychains, magnets or charms with them. First, make sure you purchase this specific Shrinky Dink paper. Trust us, we’ve tried them all! The off brand isn’t as good. The Shrinky Dink brand gives the best results. There are multiple styles within the Shrinky Dink collection. We prefer the transparent frosted one where it’s smooth on one side and rough on the other. Also called the “Ruff n’ Ready” style.
- FREE Shrinky Dink Princess prints
- Shrinky Dink paper
- Ultra Fine Point Sharpies
- Hole punch
- Colored pencils
- Sealant (Modge Podge or clear fingernail polish)
- If you don’t want children outlining their own princess then before guests arrive, outline all the princesses on the Shrinky Dink paper using a fine-point Sharpie marker (outline on the smooth side)
- If you’re making keychains or charms, use a hole punch to add a hole above the princesses head (if making magnets, skip this step)
- Cut out each princess
- Let each child pick their favorite princess(es) and make sure they color on the rough side with colored pencils
- Place shrinky dinks on parchment lined baking sheet in a pre-heated oven (see packaging instructions for the degrees and length of baking time)
- Turn on the oven light and let the kids watch the shrinking action! THIS IS THE FUNNEST PART, seeing your creation become miniature. Things are just cuter when they’re smaller! And don’t worry if the edges start flipping or curling, that’s normal. Just give it a few more seconds and you’ll see how it flattens out.
- When you pull them out you’ll have about 10-20 seconds to quickly flatten them more if needed. We use an oven mitt to quickly grab the shrinky dink, lay on a flat surface and push it flat.
- After they’ve cooled (a minute or two), seal the rough side with either modge podge or clear finger nail polish.
- Add to a keychain ring or save and add to your princess jewelry (next activity).
8) ACTIVITY – PRINCESS JEWELRY OR MASK LANYARDS
- Beads organized in compartments or separate bowls by color
- Stretchy Jewelry Cord
- Lobster Clasps
- Crimping Beads
- Measure each child and cut string accordingly
- On one end, add a crimping bead and a lobster clasp
- String beads
- Finish off the other end with another crimping bead and lobster clasp
9) ACTIVITY – DECORATING PRINCESS CUPCAKE DRESS
- FREE Princess Cupcake Toppers print
- Hot glue gun (to glue the back and front of the princesses to to sticks)
- Lollipop sticks
- Sprinkles, colored sugar, edible gold stars, other edible mini decorations (we love these Wilton Mini Rainbow Daisies)
These cupcake toppers also look so cute on top of a birthday cake. You can ice the cupcakes before hand or let the kids do this step. Let each child pick their favorite princess(es) and decorate away! Let the children take these home as part of their “goody bag” or use these to replace the main cake. Either way this activity is sure to be a hit!
We always like to have some good music playing in the background. A Disney themed party is easy as you just put on any Disney music. We just leave it playing in the background while we party.
We hope these ideas and free prints help you plan your own magical Disney Princess party! Follow us on instagram and Facebook, and tag us to be featured.
