Toy Story 4 Movie night party ideas

For me, Toy Story 4 was a real surprise. Toy Story has always been one of my favorite animated movies and honestly, I didn’t think Toy Story 4 would be so awesome. But this movie has everything from a fresh and wonderful storyline and fantastic new characters to unexpected twists. It makes you laugh until your stomach hurts and it pulls at your heartstrings. And to top it off it has so many wonderful messages: from resilience and learning to embrace change to putting yourself in someone else’s shoes and not judging a book by its cover.

Toy Story 4 is the perfect theme for a movie night or birthday party. And if you’re looking for some simple and fun ideas for a Toy Story party you’ve come to the right place. 

I’m focusing on all of the new characters and the Toy Story 4 fair theme. Seriously what could be more perfect for throwing a party than Toy Story plus fair games!

Easy Toy Story Party Decorations

For me, part of the fun of throwing a party is to keep things simple and affordable. I got a bag of Toy Story confetti from a party store (you can also get it online).

I used the confetti to decorate straws. I also used it to make my own mini Toy Story cupcake toppers by gluing a toothpick to the back of each cardboard piece.

As part of the carnival theme, you can also decorate with streamers and balloons in bright primary colors like yellow, red, blue and green. There are also lots of affordable decorations at party stores. You can save by keeping it simple and focusing on a few affordable items. Let’s be honest, it’s a lot more affordable to buy a few decorations than to make them at home.

Another great idea is to use Toy Story toys your children already have at home as part of the decoration. 

Fun and Easy Toy Story Party Foods

  • Toy Story popcorn. What is a Toy Story 4 movie night party without popcorn? To make the popcorn more festive I added candy pearls in different colors and put the popcorn in bright colored paper bags.

  • Mini brownie bites. I opted for mini brownie bites instead of cupcakes because they are less messy and there is less waste. Kids often leave cupcakes half-eaten and cupcakes can be super messy. To make these brownie bites I got some storebought brownies and decorated them with white frosting and colorful sprinkles. I then added the Toy Story mini cupcake toppers I made.

Toy Story 4 Party Activities

Toy Story 4 takes place at a fairl making fair games ideal for a Toy Story party. Here are some ideas for carnival games that you can easily set up at home. 

  • Bottle ring toss: just grab some bottles and rings to set up a ring toss game.
  • Duck match: all you need is a kiddie pool and some rubber duckies. 
  • Fishing: you might have a fishing set at home, if not making one is easy.

Another great idea is for kids to create their own forkys. All you need is a few white plastic sporks, pipe cleaners, googly eyes, wooden popsicle sticks, and play dough. 

About Toy Story 4

Director Josh Cooley’s debut feature film is the fourth installment in Pixar’s Toy Story series, which features the voice talents of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, and Tony Hale. Woody, Buzz and friends are now the possessions of a young girl named Bonnie Anderson, who introduces a major complication into their lives when she turns a spork into a toy. Forky, however, sees himself as an eating utensil and not a toy.

  2. My grandson just had a Halloween party (advanced, I know) at school today and he came in as Woody. I know he would love to have a Toy story themed birthday party too in December when he turns 4. Saving this post for the awesome party idea.
