About PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie™
When a magical meteor crash lands in Adventure City, it gives the PAW Patrol pups superpowers, transforming them into The MIGHTY PUPS! But they face their mightiest challenge yet when the pups’ archrival Humdinger breaks out of jail and teams up with Victoria Vance, a mad scientist, to steal the superpowers for themselves. With the fate of Adventure City hanging in the balance, the Mighty Pups have to stop the supervillains before it’s too late.

PAW Patrol Party Food Ideas
There are so many PAW Patrol birthday party food ideas in the PAW Patrol birthday theme! I’m sharing several recipes for PAW Patrol snack ideas (Chickaletta’s Chicken Nuggets, PAW Patrol Pupcorn, and Rubble’s Puppy Chow) a recipe for a refreshing beverage (Skye’s Pup-tastic Pink Punch), and food and drinks for a PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie™ themed party (Chocolate Covered Cashews, Mini Dog Bone Sandwiches, Victoria Vance’s Mad Science Experiments, and Mighty Crystal Punch). I also have links to free PAW Patrol party printables for the food signs at the end of this post.
Ready for the PAW Patrol party food ideas? Let’s dive in!
Chickaletta’s Chicken Nuggets. These delicious homemade nuggets are way better than the drive-through! They are the perfect PAW Patrol party food idea, lunch idea, or after school snack, and approved by Mayor Goodway’s pampered purse chicken.

Rubble’s Puppy Chow. This s’mores-style puppy chow recipe is made with rice cereal, chocolate, peanut butter, mini marshmallows, and PAW Patrol Graham Snacks. This yummy snack mix is the perfect PAW Patrol themed food for a PAW Patrol birthday party!

PAW Patrol Pupcorn. No PAW Patrol party is complete without some PUPcorn to snack on! This easy, colorful PAW Patrol snack idea is a great individual-serving treat for party guests to enjoy, and it’s gluten-free! All you need for this PAW-fect party treat is a popcorn air popper, popcorn kernels, red, yellow, and blue candy melts, and some coordinating construction paper or cardstock. You can display them easily in a cone holder like this one. See the recipe below.

The most important detail for your PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie™ watch party is the food! As Rubble said, “you expect me to watch a one-time celestial event without snacks?” Of course not, Rubble. We’ve got you covered with this fun spread!
Chocolate-Covered Cashews. Our favorite baddie, Victoria Vance told us to “sit down and eat some cashews,” so I picked up some chocolate-covered cashews from the store to add to our PAW Patrol party food ideas.
Mini Dog Bone Sandwiches. We served ham and cheese sandwiches cut into a bone-shape using a bone cookie cutter. You can make these in any of your favorite sandwich combos like turkey and cheese, cheese only, peanut butter and jelly, Nutella, etc. The PAWssibilities are endless!
Victoria Vance’s Mad Science Experiments. Not quite a Meteor Magnet, but instead we made a small treat buffet with candies in Victoria’s color scheme of teal and purple, and served the treats in plastic beakers and petri dishes. Here are the treats we served on our Mad Scientist treat buffet:
- Grape Jello made in plastic petri dishes, then topped with sprinkles
- Grape swirl lollipop sticks
- Purple foil-wrapped chocolate balls
- Lavender sixlets
- Blue raspberry gummy candy
- Berry blue jelly beans
- Birthday Cake flavored Hershey Kisses
Mighty Crystal Punch. This bubbly, sweet beverage is inspired by the pups’ Mighty transformation in the movie. As the rock candy (AKA Mighty Crystals) dissolves and the cotton candy falls into the glass, they add a cotton candy flavor to the lemon-lime soda and change the drink’s color!
- Place a piece of rock candy into a fluted cup.
- Pour lemon-lime soda into the glass.
- Place a ball of cotton candy on top of the glass as a garnish. As the rock candy dissolves and the cotton candy falls into the glass, they will add a cotton candy flavor to the soda and change the drink’s color!
PAW Patrol Decorations
Color Scheme for a Traditional PAW Patrol Party. For our PAW Patrol party decorations, we focused on a color scheme inspired by the PAW Patrol logo, using red, yellow, and blue primarily with gray as an accent color. I used a bright blue instead of a royal blue to be more consistent with the logo.
Color Scheme for a PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie™ Party. Since PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie™ focuses a lot on our favorite petite pup, Skye, we leaned into her color motif of pink and purple for our watch party decorations.
For this PAW Patrol party backdrop, I used a lavender tablecloth, and cut strips from a pink tablecloth that I gathered into stripes layered on top of the lavender tablecloth. For the table, we used a paw print tablecloth with strips cut from the other lavender tablecloth and pink tablecloth from the two-packs that we bought.
PAW Patrol Backdrop (Traditional Colors). To make this easy but high-impact PAW Patrol backdrop for our PAW Patrol party decorations, I cut 3 plastic tablecloths (red, Sunshine Yellow, and Island Blue) into 4 strips each. I hung them over a piece of ribbon, which you can tie or pin to secure. After hanging them you can spread them out however you like or adjust the length of the hanging strips. I finished the PAW Patrol backdrop with a sign saying “It’s PAW-ty Time!” that I made with my Cricut, then secured to the backdrop with double-sided tape.
PAW Print Tablecloth. For the table, I used another Island Blue tablecloth which I stamped with alternating black and gray ink paw prints using this stamp. It’s a simple, subtle way to incorporate the PAW Patrol birthday theme.
Tableware. One way to incorporate this color scheme into the PAW Patrol decorations is with utensil holders (I used mini red and yellow decorative pails from a set like this one), utensils, plates, and napkins. Since the tablecloth was blue (more on that below), I went for red and yellow for the tableware.
PAW Patrol Birthday Printables. We also used several PAW Patrol printables for our PAW Patrol decorations. Links to all the PAW Patrol free birthday printables are at the end of this post. One of the PAW Patrol party printables is this “Let’s Dive In” food table sign, which I displayed on a tabletop easel.
We also had a “Don’t Lose It, Reuse It!” recycling bin sign (how could we not incorporate one of Rocky’s famous sayings into our PAW Patrol birthday theme?) with our recycling bin, and a sign with Skye’s “This Pup’s Gotta Fly” saying for our PAW Patrol party favors table (picture below). All of these signs are available as free printables! Scroll down to get all of the PAW Patrol printables links.

PAW Patrol Party Favors
PAW Patrol Party Favors Goodie Bag. These PAW Patrol party favors were easy to put together. We used extras packs from the PAW Patrol Graham Snacks I used to make Rubble’s Puppy Chow along with mixed pieces from this PAW Patrol party favors set, secured into a clear plastic treat bag and tied with a yellow ribbon. The free PAW Patrol printables sign with Skye says “This Pup’s Gotta Fly! Thank you for coming to our PAW-ty!” and looks great on the favor table as a way to thank your guests for coming.
