Cheerleader Party Decorations
It's easy to show your spirit with cheerleader birthday party decorations. Balloons, streamers and party supplies should be in the colors of your favorite team, or simply two bold colors that work well together like red and white or blue and yellow. Hang sporty pennants and put up large poster board signs painted with poster paints and glitter glue, with sayings that you'd see in school before a big game like "Go Team!" as well as "Happy Birthday!" wishes for the birthday girl. Sports equipment and memorabilia like posters of team logos, felt pendants, footballs and basketballs are also good ways to set the mood.

Megaphones, spirit sticks and pom poms make a great centerpiece for the party table. Turn the megaphone over and have a weighed-down balloon bouquet coming out of the end! To make a clever cheerleader table cover, sprinkle confetti, glitter, sequins and shiny ribbons on a tablecloth in one of your cheerleader colors.

Play Top 40 songs or the Jock Jams soundtrack to give some high energy songs to cheer along to. If your party is indoors, be sure you have plenty of room and lay down padding or gymnast mats for the kid's cheerleader games and activities.

Cheerleader Party Activities
Cheerleader Party Activities
A wonderful way to make your cheerleading party something special is to ask a real cheerleader to come and give cheerleading lessons. Ask a friend or relative, or contact the local high school if you don't know someone who fits the bill. Build up her arrival as if she's a star cheerleader and kids will think a real celebrity is at the party!

Start your little cheerleader camp with cheerleader training exercises, like cartwheels and somersaults. Follow with cheerleader training; if you don't have an instructor then research popular cheers on the internet or buy a cheerleader training video. Don't forget to stretch beforehand. When your guests are ready, hold a competition where the girls come up with their own original cheers! Award prizes in categories such as the loudest, the funniest, the highest jumper and the most original. Make sure every cheerleader walks away a winner!

Your guests may also like to play classic children's birthday party games with a cheerleader twist. For example, play "Pin the Pom Pom on the Cheerleader" instead of "Pin the Tail on the Donkey." Do the "Hokey Pokey" or dance under a limbo stick. Or play a musical game where the children dance and cheer along with a popular song, then freeze in place when the music abruptly stops. The last one to freeze each time is "out," and continue until you have a winner.

If your cheerleader party turns into a slumber party later, gather the girl's sleeping bags around your big-screen TV at the end of the night to watch age appropriate cheerleader movies.
