Play Strawberry Shortcake music throughout your party. For a table centerpiece, gather up your child’s Strawberry Shortcake dolls (or maybe you still have yours) and place them in the center of the table. These sweet Strawberry Shortcake ideas will really make your party a hit.

For your celebration, you’ll need to entertain the kids with games and activities. Here are some ideas that your kids will love! You can make small changes to the following suggestions to fit your child’s interests and age group. Have fun!

  • Hand out strawberry scratch-n-sniff stickers for the kids to wear during the party or place on one another.
  • Play Strawberry, Strawberry Shortcake.
  • Play Pin the Seed on the Strawberry.
  • Hold a Strawberry Scavenger Hunt. Fill small bags with small strawberry favors, such as strawberry candies, strawberry stickers, lip balms, etc. Give the kids a designated amount of time to search out all of the strawberries. The goodies they find they can take home with them.
  • Hold a Strawberry Relay Race. Divide the kids into two teams and provide each team with a bowl of strawberries. The kids must carry the strawberries with a large spoon to the other side of the relay race and fill the empty bowl at the other end with the strawberries. They cant drop their strawberries, or they must begin again. The first team done wins.
  • During your party, serve Strawberry Shortcake. Provide recipe cards with a strawberry shortcake recipe and together have the guests make their own with biscuits, strawberries, and whipped cream. They may want to add more toppings to their shortcakes so have a few other options available too.
