"Mickey Mouse who?" From the young to the old, very few people would respond with these words when asked about Mickey Mouse. He is an iconic figure and, with television shows, movies -- and, of course, several amusement parks -- Mickey is the perfect theme for a child's birthday, both boys and girls. Start the Mickey Mouse party off right with a creative Mickey-themed party invitation.
Incorporate the words "Meeska, Mooska, Mickey Mouse" into the invitation. For example, "Meeska, Mooska, Mickey Mouse. Come have fun at Sammy's house."
Use other characters' names in the invitation. For example, "Join Mickey, Donald, Goofy and Minnie at Jackie's birthday bash" or "Come celebrate Jackie's birthday with Mickey, Pluto, Minnie and Goofy."
Include quotes from a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse song, such as "Friendship Team." For example, "One, two, me and you. You're invited to Laine's birthday party" or "One, two, three, four. We've got friends and we want more. Come to Laine's party for loads of fun, that's for sure."
Use the word M-I-C-K-E-Y to relay pertinent party information on the invitation with each phrase or sentence on a different line. For example: "Mickey and friends will be at 100 State Street for the party. It starts at 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 7. Cake and cookies will be served to celebrate Jacob's birthday. Kindly respond by July 4 to 555-9999. Everyone is looking forward to seeing you there. Yes. Say yes. Please, won't you?"
Include the party information in a creative way. On the inside of the card, create a maze in the shape of Mickey Mouse's signature head and ears. As the child makes his way through the puzzle, he'll come across the party information: 1 o'clock, Saturday, May 7, 500 Main St.
Tips & Warnings
- Use black cardstock and cut invitations in the shape of Mickey's Mouse's head. Write the invitation in light-colored gel pens.
