11 Great Fortnite Party Supplies

Fortnite Party Invitation

Set the theme for the party with a great Fortnite invitation. First, decide if you want an evite or printed invitation. I found a great email invitation on the evite website with a flossing bear – great for younger kids’ parties. If you have older boys, check out these printed Fortnite invitations.

Fortnite DIY Bases

Prepare for the party by creating bases for the kids to hide behind while playing Fortnite games. I do this by using cardboard boxes or sawhorses. Two quick ways to create the bases are by spray painting the boxes or spreading a camouflage mesh over the area. The mesh really gives the party a feel of a real army base and immerses the kids in the games. Find out how to make easy DIY Fortnite bases.

Fortnite Party Game Supplies

The best part of a Fortnite party is the games! This is where the kids really have fun. To reenact Fortnite, we have a huge Nerf gun battle. I explain this in detail in my Fortnite Party Games blog. However, here is a quick synopsis. In the game, each child has a Nerf gun and the kids are broken up into two teams trying to be the first to locate the hidden flag. While they search, supply drops are thrown to replenish their Nerf bullets. The kids really get into finding the flag first and the Nerf battle.

Here are some of the supplies we use for this game.

 Cloth Tool belts from Amazon. 
Kids use these to hold their bullets.
If you have limited time to shop, these are great. However,
if you have more time, you will find them cheaper
at Menards or Home Depot.

The Nerf N-Strike Elite Strongarm Blaster
is what I suggest if you are buying all the
kids Nerf guns. It is reasonably priced and
works well. We have used these for several parties.

Safety Glasses are a must have for all the kids.
Safety first!

I use these bandannas two ways. First as flags for each
team. Then I cut them up as bands to tie on kids arms so
we know who is on each team.

Fortnite Party Favors

Fortnite Good Bags and Supply Drop Bags

I use blue goody bags as supply drop bags during the party. I fill them with Nerf bullets and throw them into the game. This is one of the kids favorite parts and really changes the game from a Nerf Gun battle to a Fortnite battle. I also use the blue bags as goody bags for the kids.

Learn more about how to make supply drop and Fortnite party favors in my Fortnite Birthday Party blog. Find a free printable Drop sign for your bags there, too. Here are the supplies I use:


Blue Bags for Supply drops & Party Favors

Pop Rocks for an explosion

Pixie Candy Sticks for Gun Powder

Blow Pop Lollipops

Small water guns in Bulk. These could
also be used at summer parties for a game.

The most popular game right now for elementary and middle school kids is Fortnite. If your kids are into Fornite this is a party all the kids will want to come to.  

Fortnite Birthday Party Ideas 

Backyard Party

Do a Nerf War Party in the backyard or large indoor space and play capture the flag. Adjust it to a Fortnite theme by having the kids find hidden supplies and incorporating supply drops with replacement bullets. 

Fortnite Dance-Off

You can find the Fortnite music and dances on YouTube. Play the music and let the kids show off their dance moves.

Supply Drop Goody Bags

Create Supply Drop goody bags by purchasing blue goody bags and adding the word Supply Drop to the outside.  I also used these bags filled with Nerf Bullets to throw out during the game as a Supply Drop.

Slurp Juice

Name Gatorade Bottles Slurp Juice just like in the game. You can label the cooler with the name Slurp Juice so you don’t have to add a label to each water bottle.   

Decorations

Turn the yard into a battlefield with spray-painted boxes and camouflage netting. The netting is easy to throw over backyard equipment, chairs, or sawhorses to create areas to hide behind. Plus it adds to the fun atmosphere of the party.

Boys love to run around with their Nerf guns and any excuse to have a big group playing together is going to be a great party.  Planning a Nerf War in your backyard is easier than you think.

Let the kids bring their own nerf guns or supply one as a party gift. Then spray paint a few boxes for bases and your set. 

Nerf Birthday Party Ideas 

Capture the Flag

Have each team hide a bandanna for the other team to find. The first team that finds the flag wins. But if you get shot by a nerf bullet you have to go back to your base and start over.  

Create nerf bases for the kids to hide behind with cardboard boxes you can spray paint to look camouflage. If you don’t have time to paint spread a camo netting over the top to create an army base look. This can also be done for the Fortnite Birthday Party too! 

Nerf Targets

Make DIY Nerf Targets and Games for the kids to play around your yard. Have stations set up with different targets for the kids to rotate through in groups.

Nerf Goody Bag

Depending on what you want to spend on goody bags you could give each child a Nerf gun or ask them to bring one from home. We gave out one year the Nerf Gun Strike Elite as it was a cheaper price and works well.

I would give each child a pair of safety glasses and a cloth tool belt to wear while playing capture the flag.

The belt is great for holding their bullets and they only cost $1 at your local hardware store. Then use an orange paper bag for the good bag and fill it with candy and extra bullets to take home along with their glasses and a cloth belt.

Birthday Party in a Game Truck

Game Trucks for Birthday Parties 

One of the newest crazes for birthday parties is to hire a game truck to come to your house. These trucks are filled with several screens and Xbox games for the kids to play.

This is a great idea for a kid that loves to play online games.  With the high price of many birthday party locations, hosting this at your house might be pretty similar in cost.

We have gone to a couple of these parties and they have been a huge hit with older elementary school-age kids.  

Game Truck Birthday Party Tips

Have the kids arrive 30 minutes early to do cake and pizza in your home or even set up tables outside. Then have parents pick them up straight from the game truck in your driveway.  

Google “game truck” in your local area to see if you have a company by you hosting these parties.

Do you have a child who loves Super Heroes? The great part about this theme is there are so many different characters you can pick from or just make it a general theme. All the kids coming will probably have a favorite of their own, too.  

Super Hero Birthday Party Idea 

Super Hero Masks & Capes

Buy Super Hero masks and Super Hero capes for all the kids to wear. You can also add the superhero masks to a balloon for decorations (pictured above).  

Hero’s Obstacle Course

Create an obstacle course in your house or backyard for the heroes to climb through. Add something to the end they need to rescue like a treasure box. Make them feel like a real hero! The treasure box could be filled with candy as part of the goody bag gift. 

Super Hero Costumes

Ask the kids to dress up for the party by wearing their own superhero costumes. 

Super Hero Desserts

On your dessert table or where the kids will eat, use your child’s superhero figures to decorate the table and cake.

What kid doesn’t like to build with Legos? This party can be pretty easy to throw because there is so much to buy with this theme, you don’t have to create as much yourself. 

This is a pretty universal theme that should be fun for both girls and boys.  

Lego Birthday Party Ideas

Party Decorations

Decorate with Primary colors in your balloons, table cloth, and streamers. You will also find tons of themed plates, napkins, and goody bags with Lego pictures on Amazon and at Dollar Tree. 

Lego Cake Toppers

Add little Lego Men to the top of your cake as a quick decorations for Costco cakes or a cake you make yourself at home. If you add cup cakes use these cute stick Lego figure toppers.  

Lego Game

For a fun Lego game, buy a bin of classic Lego pieces and give the kids a 10-minute challenge to build something. Then let them show it off to everyone. You could give prizes for the best creation or let them destroy it and build again. Bonus: Your child has more Legos to play with after the party.  

Lego Goody Bag

Depending on your budget, you could also buy small Lego sets or mini Lego party sets like animals or vehicles. If you buy a bigger set have the kids build it at the party for an activity. If you get the mini Lego party sets add it to your goody bags.

Another ideas is this fun Lego candy we gave out a party. The kids had a blast building with their candy and then eating the block. It was a huge hit. The one issue is the candy is very hard so it would not be suitable for a younger kids party.

Star Wars Birthday Party Ideas 

Have a Jedi Training Academy with stations around your house or backyard. 

Lightsaber Balloon Game

Have kids use Lightsabers to keep balloons up in the air. If you are worried they’ll get hit with the lightsabers use inflatable lightsabers.

Lightsaber Battle

Star Wars Obstacle Course

Create an obstacle course that you need to use the force to get through. Suggestion -White Helium balloons weighted to the floor can be storm troopers they need to get around.  

Blaster Targets

Make Star Wars Blaster stations by using Nerf guns and Nerf targets for the kids to shoot. For targets, use a cut up a long pool noodle, toilet paper rolls, or Pringles can.

Sports Birthday Party Ideas 

Games to Play

I would pick 2-3 sports to play during the party. Kickball or soccer would be a great group game.

Football Challenge 

Use a large piece of cardboard or tarp and cut holes in it to use as a football throwing challenge. 

Dribbling Challenge

Put out cones on your driveway for the kids to dribble around and see who can make it through the course the fastest.

Baseball Targets

Set up targets made of pool noodles or aluminum cans to knock down by throwing baseballs. 

Water Balloon Baseball

In the summer, play water balloon baseball. Fill up water balloons and then pitch them to the kids to hit with a baseball bat. If kids hit the balloon they advance to first base if they don’t after 3 pitches their out.

Decorations

For the table decorations find small foam sports balls to use as a centerpiece or spread around the table. Then at the end of the party let the kids each pick one to take home.

A unique gift idea for a sport-loving kid is a cool Sports Subscription Box. A monthly box filled with items for their favorite sport. Pick your child’s age then pick between baseball, soccer, football, hockey, basketball or mixed sports.

They’ll be excited every month to receive these fun sports-themed boxes

Jack-Jack – Put out playdough for the kids to mold and change shapes like how Jack-Jack does shapeshifting

Dress Up Like an Incredible

Have the kids dress up like the Incredibles with a face mask like the characters wear. It could go in the goody bag or let the kids wear them while they play the games.

How to Make Fortnite Bases

Cardboard Bases

The first step is to figure out how to make the kids feel like they are in the live version of a Fortnite game. To do this created bases and obstacles for kids to hide behind and use their Nerf guns to feel like real Fortnite players. 

Fortnite Base Ideas for a Fortnite Themed Party. Great for Fortnite decorations and for playing Fortnite games at home.
Fortnite Birthday Party Bases

Build the bases using cardboard boxes that you spray paint to look like camouflage. To do this use a mixture of green, orange & black spray paint. Or find a camouflage color spray paint

Lay the boxes out in your yard on an old sheet and let the kids help spray paint them.

When the bases dry, just tape them together and put a rock or brick inside as an anchor on the bottom so it does not blow away.

Sawhorse Bases

Don’t have time to paint boxes? No problem here is an even easier trick! Use the sawhorses in your garage and borrow a few from some neighbors. Then purchase a camouflage mesh netting to place over the sawhorses.

Create a DIY Fortnite Base with a saw horse & mesh netting. Use it for super fun Fortnite Party Game Ideas like capture the flag.

The mesh netting I used comes in a roll so you can cut it to the length you need.  If you don’t have sawhorses, you can put the mesh netting over anything.

I even used one of my kids’ small climbers. Super quick and easy set up on the day of the party. 

Fortnite Party Game Ideas

Capture the Flag Game 

Previously we had done a nerf gun party and all the kids loved it. So, I adapted a game I used for that party.

We played capture the flag with each team needing to locate the flag that the other team hid.

Create fun Fortnite Party Games with a mix of DIY Fortnite bases from cardboard boxes and mesh netting. Kids will love hiding behind the bases and playing capture the flag.
Fortnite Obstacles with a mix of box bases and sawhorses for Games.

Separate the kids into two teams and have them all start at their base. When you say start, the kids will need to search for the flags while at the same time shooting their opponents.

If they get hit by a nerf bullet, they need to go back to their base and restart. The first team to find the hidden flag wins. Part of the fun is having each team come up with a strategy to find the flags. For the flags, I bought bandanas in several colors and cut them into strips.

Turn it into a Fortnite Birthday Party Game 

Now adapt the Capture the flag game to be a Fornite Theme.

Each child starts out with 10 bullets that I put in a nail belt for them to wear (pictured below). I hide extra bullets around the yard for the kids to find, just like how they would find supplies in the actual game.

I also would randomly yell supply drop and throw a bag with bullets into the field. The kids LOVED this part!!

The Supply Drop bag is one I made for goody bags so I just made a few extra for the supply drop (find below in Party Favor section). While the kids play, I gathered up bullets on the ground and would add them to my next supply drop bag. 

These ideas added a super fun twist to capture the flag and made it feel more like a Fortnite Game.

Llama Pinata

Kids love to hit a pinata at parties and get all the goodies. Add this cool Llama Pinata to go with your party theme.

Fill the Pinata with cool Fortnite party favors instead of candy. Or do a little of both. Kids can gather what drops out with the Supply Drop Bags you’ll see below. 

Fortnite Dances 

One more Fortnite Party Game Idea is to do a Fortnite Dance off. You can download Fortnite dance music from YouTube and let the kids show off their moves. Who doesn’t love to Floss!

Fortnite Supply Drop and Party Favors 

So, what are you going to give the kids for party favors? First, a practical give away is the cloth nail belt you can find at Home Depot or Menards for $1. They look like this:

Finish up with supply drop party favors and free printables. #fortnite, #partyideas, #kidbirthday, #birthdayparty
Fortnite Nail Belts to hold your ammo

Inside the nail belt, add a pair of safety glasses and 10 bullets for each kid. I bought about 500 bullets in total for 12 kids. That might sound like a lot but you will go through a ton during the game. Make sure to add the safety glasses to protect the kid’s eyes during the game. 

Next, the big question is…. Do you want to give each child a nerf gun for the party? This depends on who you have coming and if the kids have their own nerf gun.

The first Fortnite party I threw, I bought all the kids the Nerf N-Strike Elite Strongarm Blaster to use and this also was their party favor.

Since then, we have done two more Fortnite birthday parties and I have found as the kids got older, most have their own nerf guns they would prefer to use. 

Check out our full review of the Best Nerf Guns for Kids to get more ideas and to see which is the best one for your child.

Below is the one we used at a party as a gift to the kids. It’s reliable and cheaper than most other Nerf Guns..

Fortnite Supply Drop Goody Bags 

In keeping with the Fortnite party theme, I bought small blue gift bags and glued on a Supply Drop sign.

These are great for picking up items from the Pinata and using during the Fortnite Game too.

Fortnite Party Favor Bags

If you don’t have time to make your own printable goody bags you can also find pre-printed Supply Drop Goody Bags on Amazon. 

I added into the bags Pop Rocks (for explosion), Sugar Sticks (for gun powder), small water guns, and blow pops.  Plus, they also took home their nail belt, glasses, and some bullets.

Fortnite Party Food Ideas 

Birthday Cake 

Fortnite Birthday Party Cake Ideas. Fun desserts for Fortnite Parties.

Alright, so I am not a baker and I try to use shortcuts where I can. So, for the cake, I bought a Costco cake with the balloons to mimic a supply drop and added on top some of my kid’s small army men.

It was super easy, feeds a lot of kids, and it’s cheap. You could also visit your local bakery and see if they can make you a Fortnite Cake.

Fortnite V-Bucks Cookies 

Well, because I cut corners on the cake, I wanted to add something a little more fun from the game so I made V-Bucks Cookies. It sounds like a pain but it’s actually pretty easy.  

V-Bucks cookies are the perfect Fortnite Party Dessert Idea. An Easy DIY party food you can make at home.
DIY Fortnite V-Bucks Cookies

Here is how I made these easy V-Bucks Cookies

1. I bought the already made Pillsbury sugar cookie dough, sliced it into round cookies, and baked it according to the package.

2. Then I bought blue frosting which I was so excited to find! If you can’t find blue, just get white frosting and add some blue food dye.

3. Then buy some white frosting you can write with, I used the decorative icing which I found easy to write on the cookies.

To my relief, the kids all knew right away that they were V-Bucks and were so excited to eat them.  

Fortnite Slurp Juice

One more fun addition is to add Slurp Juice to the menu. I did this by buying blue Gatorade bottles and putting a Slurp Juice sign on the cooler. Super easy and fun touch.  

Slurp Juice is a fun Fortnite Party Idea to go along with your theme. Use our free printable to make these Gatorade drinks at home.

Fortnite Decoration Ideas

The best colors to decorate with are camouflage, green, yellow, or blue for a Fortnite party. Yellow balloons on the table or around the yard are an easy way to decorate. The drop bag with a yellow balloon tied to it would make a great centerpiece. 

Decorate the tables with blue or green table clothes or use this Fortnite package with Fortnite signs, plates, and napkins

Virtual Fortnite Birthday Party

When you can’t gather together for a party you can still celebrate with a Virtual Fortnite Birthday party the kids will love.

Start the party by delivering Fortnite goody bags and V Bucks cookies to your child’s friends. Then at a specific time arrange for up to 16 kids to all join Fortnite together in Creative mode. This will let the kids all play together as a group.

Afterward, have them hop on Zoom to play a few fun Zoom Games and sing Happy Birthday to your child. This is a great way to celebrate when we can’t be together with friends and family.
