Free Dora the Explorer Invites Online

A variety of methods are available for creating Dora party invitations. Whether you download and print an invitation, make one yourself or send out an online invitation, your guests will get a kick out of this popular party theme on your child's invitation.

Download and Print Invites

It's easy to download and print invitations from websites that offer this service. The invitations may feature Dora, Boots, Backpack, Diego or other friends from the cartoon. A few places to check out include:

  • DLTK Cards takes you step-by-step through the process of making an invitation card. First, select the type of card (party invitation). Then, choose the theme (Dora the Explorer). Next, choose whether you want a black and white image, which saves ink and allows your child to color the invitations him/herself, or a color image. Continue on by selecting one of the available pictures of Dora herself or her friends Swiper and Boots. Continue following the steps for adding party information and text, until you have finished the invitation. Print the invite using your home printer.
  • PartyInvitationsHQ features three different Dora invitations including a classic Dora, a princess Dora and an "explorer" themed Dora invitation. The site recommends printing on invitation paper rather than traditional printer paper.
  • Family Shopping Bag has several Dora and Diego themed invitations. Select from ones featuring both characters, or just Dora with her friends. These invitations are single-fold cards with just the outside designed. You will need to create the inside party information wording yourself.
  • Cartoon Watcher offers a couple of Dora the Explorer invitations for printing. One features Dora and Diego in western attire, perfect for a cowboy and cowgirl themed Dora party. The second highlights Dora and Backpack, Boots and other friends.

E-card Invitations

An evite is a great way to get the message out about your party quickly and easily. You also save money and time compared to printing free Dora the Explorer invitations, because e-cards can be done as a mass mailing to all the potential guests. A simple way to do this is to create a document with free Dora clipart and send everyone an email. Alternatively, you can look for online invitations from companies that have licensed the character for use in their e-cards.

DIY Dora Photo Invitations

Not all free invitations need to be found online. Instead, use resources at home to make your own invitations featuring Dora. The only cost is that of supplies, which you likely already have on hand. Try this DIY Dora photo invitation:

  1. Snap a photo of your child in a Dora shirt, surrounded by her favorite Dora items. Dolls, stuffed animals, a backpack and blankets are good items to include in the photo.
  2. Edit the photo and load it into a word processing program.
  3. Add festive wording, like "Dora is going to Birthday Child's party! She wants to invite you, too!"
  4. Include pertinent party information, like date, location, and RSVP information.
  5. Print the invitations.
