Show your child a great time with a Doc McStuffins party full of great decorations and games. If your child loves Dottie and all her friends or if they want to become a doctor themselves one day, set up an event to match. This Doc McStuffins party guide is full of great tips and tricks for Dottie decorations, food, party favors, invitations, and activities.

Doc McStuffins Party Planning & Invitations

In addition to basic Doc McStuffins party supplies, like plates, cups, napkins, and decorations, you may want to consider purchasing, borrowing or renting the following items for your party:

  • Pretend first aid kits and doctor costumes
  • Doc McStuffins TV episodes on DVD or streaming online
  • Teddy bears and stuffed animals
  • Toy stethoscopes

If you do not have the time to make your own invitations, consider our Personalized Doc McStuffins Party invitations that include your child's name and all the party details. We also carry blank Doc McStuffins invitations. Creative invitations build excitement and set the mood for the party before it even starts! The shape, wording, and delivery method of your invitation can all be customized to fit your theme. If you have the time to make your own invitations, here are a few Doc McStuffins party birthday invitation ideas:

  • Seal your envelopes with a cute adhesive bandage or Doc McStuffins sticker. This amps up the anticipation!
  • Cut out a bandage shape from construction paper. Write in your party details on the back and decorate the front to look like Dottie's signature heart bandages.

Doc McStuffins Party Decorations & Food

Take a look at some of our suggestions for Doc McStuffins party decorations:

  • Set up a hairstyling station so guests can get the same look Dottie wears in the cartoon. Pick up pink and purple headbands and a few hair ties to give your guests cute pigtails. Guests with short hair can still have fun with a cute headband.
  • You and any adult volunteers helping with your party can dress up like nurses with hats and stethoscopes. Nurses are there to help the doctors and take care of patients, so a nurse costume will make you the perfect assistant to your little doctors-in-training.
  • Set up your party space to look like a hospital. Create a sign pointing to the different areas of your party and label them with fun titles. The table can be "cafeteria," party favors are "Gift Shop," and "Emergency Room" can mark your game space.
  • Group bunches of balloons together and weigh them down with balloon weights or stuffed toys. Throw in a Doc McStuffins balloon bouquet for an easy match!
  • Hang streamers and Doc McStuffins banners above the food table and around the party area.

Doc McStuffins Decorations

It can be fun to prepare and serve party food that fits your theme. For a Doc McStuffins Party, try foods that feature hearts and cute colors. Find more ideas below:

  • Make linzer heart cookies in the shape of bandages for a tasty and thematic approach to baked goods.
  • Dottie and other doctors know the importance of eating healthy. Afterall, "an apple a day keeps the doctor away!" Set up fruit and veggie trays along with other healthy foods like salads or granola.
  • Fill plastic syringes with gelatin and then stick them in the fridge to cool. The result is a fun and kid-friendly Jello shot!
  • Serve up purple and pink snacks like cupcakes, candy, and more. You can use food dye to turn tons of things the right color.
  • The Doc can serve up a fun "pharmacy" of purple and pink candies such as jellybeans, sixlets, lollipops, gumballs and jawbreakers. Provide bags for the kids to take home a variety of candy medicine.
