Throwing eco-friendly themed parties could be a great way for parents to help their kids learn the importance of environment preservation while instilling in them a healthy respect for the world around them.

To help you throw the perfect eco-friendly themed party for your kids, we've created for you a list of three eco-friendly snacks and three eco-friendly decorations.

Rainbow carrots and hummus

Hummus is easy to cook, full of proteins, and it helps lower cholesterol levels, making it equally healthy for kids and adults alike.

Get some rainbow carrots and protein-rich hummus, a combination that'll add both colour and taste to your kid's party.

If rainbow carrots are proving hard to find, regular carrots are an equally energetic and colourful experience.

Smoothies

Add a splash of blended flavours. Fruit smoothies are not only energetic but, like rainbow carrots, add some beautiful, colourful food to the party mix.

Smoothies aren't an everyday food, so they'll be a real treat for your youngster's special day; refreshing and healthy.

Put the smoothies in jars with multi-coloured stars to add even more life to the party theme.

Popcorn

The snack that everyone loves, popcorn!

A hit with the kids, popcorn can surely be the go-to party snacks for any theme party. Combining popcorn with small amounts of butter or cheese can increase nutrition and appeal.

Gardening

Gardening combines fun and learning, making it an ideal educational activity, even at a party. Besides, kids love to get their hands into dirt.

Using different seeds, teach the kids how each type needs to be planted differently to suit that particular plant.

Gardening can help children realise that they're part of a greater cause. And after the party's over, have them take their plant home so that they can keep looking after it.

Let this activity be a fun lesson outside the classroom.

Props from recyclable and biodegradable products

How can you use products effectively that would otherwise become waste?

Throwing a party on the idea of recycled products will not only be a decluttering activity for you but will also be educational and fun for your kids.

One idea is to give them your old newspapers to make a toy boat that can be painted and decorated.

Balloons have been given a bad rap over the last few years. But, you can find use recyclable japanese paper balloons. They are colourful and unique - and very friendly to the environment.

Here is a great biodegradable Pinata from Shindigs Party Supplies. All the materials in this dragon will either be eaten by the kids - or by the worms!

Bike Riding

Have a fun day out celebrating your child's party together with your friends and their kids.

Head off to a local park that has a bike riding track and enjoy an activity-themed party.

After the ride, enjoy the eco-friendly snacks we mentioned. Carrots with hummus have the energy you'll need for that long bike ride.
