Just go with it for their party!

Paw Patrol

This is a great theme for your twins’ birthday when they hit the age of 4. You can do a sweet little scavenger hunt and put paw prints on the floor to lead the kiddos to their next clues, play a game of pin the badge on Marshall, and give out little stuffed pups with a pretend adoption certificate to guests. Buy Paw Patrol decorations for your twins’ birthday here.

5th Twins’ Birthday

High Five

Celebrate all things 5 with this party. Get plenty of 5 plates, balloons, and even snack labels. You can designate a color for each twin or just a color for the whole party. Heck, you can even mix it up and do a few different colors for all the decorations and the cake.

Mario and Luigi

This Nintendo theme will be a big hit with your 5-year-old twins’ birthday. Use red, yellow, green, and blue for this theme. There are plenty of Mario and Luigi decorations on the market like these you can get on Amazon, but you can always save money by using the basic colors and maybe only buying a couple of themed balloons or getting the cake decorated, and then just using the basic colors for the rest.


Many kids become completely obsessed with Legos. It’s a fun activity that can easily be turned into a theme for your twins’ birthday. With the creation of Lego Friends, the girls can get in on all the fun, too (not that they certainly couldn’t with regular Legos, but those little horse stables are cute). Decorations are a breeze to make for this twins’ birthday theme due to the boxy nature of the theme, and the building becomes a great kid’s activity. If you would rather buy decorations, get them here.

Minecraft twins’ birthday


A personal favorite in many households. This one is another theme that makes it easy to create your own decorations from things you can get at any dollar store. You can even make a TNT block pinata if you’re a little ambitious and crafty for the kids, and a bean bag tossed into a cardboard creeper, making games fun and easy! Buy some decorations to save time here!

Keep in mind that a theme for your twins’ birthday certainly isn’t necessary. At the end of the day, this is a celebration of another year as a twin parent, and you can do that with some cake, juice, and a handful of pretzels.

Some parents need a theme to keep their twins’ birthdays organized, and some parents just want a theme for extra fun. Either way, have a good time, and take a moment to remember to be grateful that you were chosen to parent these two little ones!
