This Police Birthday Party is from Gerardine of My Kids Party in New Zealand.
Gerardine’s son William turned 6 and celebrated with Police themed party and even a visit from a real Policeman!
My Kids Party is a new website in New Zealand providing party planning inspiration for Kiwi kids. So of course Gerardine had some great Police Party Ideas! Keep reading for all the details.
Police Birthday Party Decorations
Gerardine decorated her party with lots of “caution” tape, black & white stripes, blue & yellow streamers, and my Police Party Printables.
I love these milk bottles with personalized labels and black and white paper straws.
Each child received their own Police Officer Badge that served both as a Place Card and a badge that they could also pin to their shirt with a safety pin later on.
Police Birthday Party Food
Gerardine had lots of fun with the food at William’s Party.
Donuts are a must at any Police Birthday Party! Gerardine found great sized mini ones for kids.
The ‘Stick Em Ups’ were inspired by seeing an idea using pretzel sticks on Pinterest.
These car biscuits still look gorgeous despite Gerardine icing them in a rush at 10.30pm the night before the party! The kids loved them!
I love these fun Traffic Jams – cute jam sandwiches made with a car cookie cutter.
Gerardine saw the ‘Cop Corn’ idea on Pinterest. She used the cupcake toppers from my Police Party Printables to decorate some recycled yogurt pots for the popcorn.
As the party was from 3.30 – 5.30pm, the kids were all really hungry after a day at school. Gerardine also had plenty of other party favourites to hand round like cheerios and sausage rolls.
Along with water, there was chocolate milk served for drinks. This went down a treat with the donuts for hungry kids after school.
Police Birthday Party Cake
William requested a Police Station for his birthday cake and he and Dad had a fabulous time putting this it together.
Geraldine’s husband used Annabel Langbein’s Ultimate Chocolate Cake, which makes a big cake perfect for the Police Station. It was baked it in a rectangle oven dish and then cut and layered to create a Police Station complete with helicopter pad.
William spent the weeks leading up to the party building Lego police vehicles, finding all the matching mini-figures and putting together the scene for the cake. Gerardine loved seeing him involved in the party planning and so enthusiastic about it.
Police Birthday Party Games
William’s Dad got into the party spirit and put together a Police Training Obstacle Course.
He used their monkey bars, swings and trampoline as well as borrowing some beams and boxes from the local Playcentre. He even pinned a sheet down for the kids to crawl under and drew a chalk road for the police car to drive along.
The Finger Printing Station and Police Line Up Photo Booth were a nice activity for the kids to come inside to when they needed a break from racing around together outside. The printables for these were all from my Police Party Printables package.
The highlight of the party was a visit from friendly Constable Rick.
Gerardine said he did a fabulous job of teaching the kids the importance of Police Officers and their role in our community. William’s favourite part was the road spike demonstration and seeing how many of his mates could fit in the police car.
Police Party Favors
This was the part of the party William was most excited about!
He gave all his party guests a pair of handcuffs Gerardine purchased from Lotsa Goodies. Gerardine took them out of their packaging and used cellophane bags with the Favor Bag Topper from my Police Party Printables to dress them up.
If the party guests were anything like Gerardine’s kids she’s sure they would have gone home and spent the evening handcuffing their parents.
