So that the guests also know when and where the birthday party will take place, they need of course invitation cards. And these should ideally also already indicate the theme of the party. For this purpose, of course, you can find templates for purchase in stores, which you then simply fill out. But you can also look online for templates to print or even make your own Paw Patrol invitation.

Serve food and snacks in dog bowls for Paw Patrol birthday


Tablecloths with matching motifs, streamers in suitable colors or paper plates with the dog pups from the film are just a few of the possibilities. Feel free to print dog paw prints on cardboard, cut them out and spread them on the table as decoration. If you’re using confetti, why not make it yourself by getting a punch for tiny paws or dog bones. Name tags with the heroes or stickers on cups/glasses are also a great idea for Paw Patrol themed party decorations.

Make simple garlands yourself from cardboard or foam rubber

Pinhatas are also very popular with young and old and are a great idea for a Paw Patrol kids birthday party that is not only decorative but also fun. Instead of bowls, use dog bowls for snacks and serve edible decorations like bone-shaped cookies, for example. Hats with the motifs and even dog masks you can provide as guest favors on the table.

The highlight of any party: the cake

Well, to choose a Paw Patrol cake for a birthday is actually not really complicated. Especially with the help of fondant, you can always make just the right one in terms of motifs and colors. It doesn’t have to feature all the movie heroes either. Surely your child has a favorite that you can pay more attention to instead. If a motif cake for the Paw Patrol birthday is too elaborate for you, you can simply stick to the main colors mentioned above.

Instead of birthday cake for kids serve cupcakes with motifs

A good alternative to the classic cake or a Paw Patrol cake are also cupcakes or muffins, respectively, which are also decorated with colored cream or motifs and even simple plugs that you can make yourself. Or how about cake pops or cookies?

Paw Patrol Birthday – Party Games Ideas

To make sure everyone really has fun, Paw Patrol birthday games are in demand. How about throwing cans , which is called “Put out the fire with Marshall”? Glue fire and flames on simple paper cups and place them on top of each other like a pyramid. With little bags or soft balls must then throw the cups over.

Or cut out bones or dog paws from white paper and provide the kids with various decorations such as sequins, paper cutouts, pipe cleaner pieces, beads and the like, which they then use to glue onto the templates. Simple Paw Patrol coloring pictures are also a great activity or regular Paw Patrol toys, especially if the kids are still quite young.

Older kids are guaranteed to have great fun with a Paw Patrol scavenger hunt or treasure hunt. This game is best organized outdoors, but planning indoors is also quite possible in bad or cold weather. For the scavenger hunt you can also use can throwing or how about rescuing animals with Zuma (toy animals float in the water and must be fished out or hide some in the sandbox in the garden)?
