The Ultimate Snoopy Birthday Guide: 21 Ideas for a Snoopy-Themed Party

Do you want to throw your little one the best Snoopy-themed party? If so, then you are in luck! Here, you will find the ultimate Snoopy-Themed Party guide to help you figure out precisely what games, food, and decorations to gather, no matter your budget! 

What To Consider When Planning a Birthday Party

When you are about to throw a birthday party, there are a few different considerations to think about. For starters, what type of family are you? Do you and your little one prefer a big bash? Something that screams, “It's my birthday, and by golly, we are going to celebrate!” On the flip side, do you like something quieter and less boisterous? 

The next thing to think about is how many people you will be inviting to the party. Figuring out this bit of information will help you determine how to plan the games and how much food to have available. 

Another thing to consider is how old your child is. A child turning eight versus a child turning two will enjoy different games and food.

Now, after you sit down and decide exactly what type of birthday party your little one will have, you are ready to start planning for the ultimate Snoopy-themed party!

Food for a Snoopy Birthday

Snoopy and his friend Charlie Brown are popular characters in the Peanuts comic that ran from 1950 to 2000. Unsurprisingly, there are plenty of excellent avenues to plan for the best Snoopy Party within the comic and television series. When starting with food, you can either go simple or all out. Some fun ideas would be:

Yellow Lemonade

One fun and easy drink is yellow lemonade. Yellow and red are some of the primary colors in Snoopy. So, put little pops of yellow and red in your food and decorations. 

Additionally, a cute and simple decoration to go with your drinks would be to buy yellow solo cups and draw the black stripe in the center to look like Charlie Brown's shirt.

Food and Snacks to Serve

When thinking about food, simple is a good route to go. A Trail mix with primary colors and even peanuts make a great little snack!

You can display the snacks in (clean) dog bowls to add more decorations to your birthday party. In addition, some snacks that would be great at a Snoopy birthday party include:

  1. Pretzels
  2. Peanut shaped cookies
  3. Popcorn
  4. Peanuts
  5. Chex mix 
  6. Rootbeer 
  7. Pizza (root beer and pizza is Snoopy's favorite!) 
  8. Marshmallows

Some more cute ideas for a Snoopy party include Snoopy cake pops, cookies, popcorn, and a primary color cake with Snoopy's doghouse as center stage.

Games For a Snoopy Birthday 

One of the main attractions at any birthday party is the games! Moreover, our website has many unique and fun games to try out for your next birthday party. However, to narrow it down a bit, these games would be dogtastic at your Snoopy birthday party! 

Pin the Tail on Snoopy

A simple classic game to play is pin the tail on Snoopy. You can try making your own if you can't find a Snoopy-themed one.

DIY Psychiatric Help Station

An adorable game/decoration for any Snoopy party is to set up a Psychiatric Help station based on Lucy's booth, which is very popular in the comics and television shows. You can use it as a decoration or have the children take turns giving advice to one another.

Make Your Own Comics

A simple activity for the kids is to make your own comic strip. This can be done by printing a comic strip and having the children fill in their own. However, if you are more DIY, give the child a strip of paper and have them create their comic from scratch works, too!

Dance to Linus and Lucy's Theme Song

Learning how to do the Peanuts Dance move the kids do during the dances would be fun. The music is called Linus and Lucy. Simply have the kids watch the moves and try to imitate them! 

Cuddle Up With a Charlie Brown Movie

While this is more of an activity than a game, you can watch a Snoopy movie to top the day off!

Favors are not something that every family does. However, if you love giving out favors to your guests, try one of these fun ones! 

Bottles of peanuts are adorable and easy to make.
