Are your kids obsessed with Fortnite? Are you wondering how to throw an epic Fortnite-themed birthday party? Look no further! I've got you covered with all the best Fortnite birthday party ideas, games, supplies, and more!


If your child is a fan of Fortnite, then why not throw them an unforgettable Fortnite birthday party? It may seem daunting at first, but with some creative DIY ideas and fun games, you can easily host an amazing party that your child and their friends will love. Plus, I'll provide you with a comprehensive list of Fortnite party supplies and cool Fortnite gift ideas for kids. Let's get started!

How to Make Fortnite Bases

Make your Fortnite party even more awesome by creating DIY bases for the party guests to hide behind, just like in the online video game.

Cardboard Bases

To create the bases, use cardboard boxes and spray paint them with a camouflage design using green, orange, and black spray paint. You can also find camouflage color spray paint for a more realistic look. Let the kids help spray paint the boxes, making it a fun and engaging activity. After the paint dries, tape the boxes together and place a rock or brick inside as an anchor at the bottom.

Sawhorse Bases

If you're short on time, you can use sawhorses as bases. Simply borrow some from neighbors or use ones you have in your garage. Then, drape camouflage mesh netting over the sawhorses to create a cool backdrop. If you don't have sawhorses, you can get creative and use ladders, chairs, or tables as alternative bases.

Fortnite Party Game Ideas

Keep the excitement going with fun Fortnite party games that will entertain the kids throughout the party.

Capture the Flag Game

One of our favorite Fortnite-inspired games is Capture the Flag. Divide the kids into two teams and give each team a flag to hide. The objective is for each team to locate the other team's flag while shooting their opponents with Nerf guns. If a player gets hit, they must return to their base and start again. The first team to find the hidden flag wins.

Turn it into a Fortnite Birthday Party Game

To add a Fortnite twist to Capture the Flag, give each child a nail belt with 10 bullets. Hide additional bullets around the yard, resembling supplies in the actual game. You can also surprise the kids by yelling "supply drop" and throwing a bag with bullets into the field. This adds an extra element of fun to the game and makes it feel more like a real Fortnite experience.

Fortnite Llama Piñata & Drop Box

No birthday party is complete without a piñata! Surprise the kids with a Fortnite-themed Llama Piñata filled with Fortnite party favors instead of candy. You can also use drop boxes for the kids to gather and keep all the party goodies.

Fortnite Dances

Organize a Fortnite Dance Off and let the kids show off their dance moves. Download Fortnite dance music from YouTube and get the party started. Trust me, everyone will love doing the Floss and other Fortnite dances!

Fortnite Supply Drop and Party Favors

Make sure to provide the kids with fantastic party favors that fit the Fortnite theme. One practical giveaway is a cloth nail belt, which you can find at Home Depot or Menards for just $1. Fill the nail belt with safety glasses and 10 bullets for each child. Additionally, you can consider giving each child their own Nerf gun or explore the Best Nerf Guns for Kids to find the perfect one for your child. To complete the supply drop theme, provide small blue gift bags with a Supply Drop sign glued on. Inside the bags, include items such as Pop Rocks, Sugar Sticks, small water guns, and blow pops.

Fortnite Party Food Ideas

No birthday party is complete without delicious food. Here are some Fortnite-inspired food ideas that the kids will love.

Birthday Cake

For an easy and budget-friendly cake option, consider purchasing a Costco cake with balloons to mimic a supply drop. You can add some small army men on top as a fun Fortnite touch. Alternatively, you can order a Fortnite-themed cake from your local bakery.

Fortnite V-Bucks Cookies

Add some extra fun with V-Bucks Cookies. Use pre-made sugar cookie dough and bake them according to the package instructions. Then, frost the cookies with blue frosting and use white decorative icing to write "V-Bucks" on top. The kids will quickly recognize them and be excited to eat them.

Fortnite Slurp Juice

To quench the kids' thirst, serve "Slurp Juice" in blue Gatorade bottles. Attach a Slurp Juice sign to the cooler to create a fun and eye-catching display.

Fortnite Party Decoration Ideas

Creating the right atmosphere is crucial for a successful Fortnite birthday party. Use colors like camouflage, green, yellow, or blue for your party decorations. Yellow balloons placed on the table or around the yard are an easy and effective way to decorate. You can also use drop bags with yellow balloons tied to them as attractive centerpieces. Consider using blue or green tablecloths or opt for a Fortnite-themed party package that includes Fortnite signs, paper plates, and napkins.

Fortnite Sleepover Party

Take your Fortnite party to the next level by turning it into a sleepover. If you're already planning a Fortnite party, why not extend the fun with a sleepover? Check out our guide on things to do at a Sleepover for Kids for easy slumber party games, ideas, and activities.

Virtual Fortnite Party

If gathering in person isn't possible, you can still celebrate with a virtual Fortnite birthday party that your child and their friends will love. Deliver Fortnite goody bags and V-Bucks cookies to your child's friends and schedule a time for them to join Fortnite together in Creative mode. Afterward, have the kids hop on Zoom to play fun Zoom games and sing Happy Birthday to your child. This is a great way to celebrate when physical gatherings are not possible.
