Throwing a kids birthday party can be stressful if you don’t have any ideas of what to do. You want it to be one that they remember for years and you want it to be perfect.
People are spending more and more on their kid’s birthday parties, some spending as much as $500. But it doesn’t need to be expensive though, and there are a lot of things you can do to make it fun.
If you’re looking for some inspiration for your kid’s birthday party, you’re in luck. Read on for 8 great birthday party ideas to make your child’s day special.
1. Pajama Party
Sometimes it can be tricky to get your kids out of their PJs on a morning and get dressed. Instead, make their birthday party pajama themed!
Tell guests to come in their pajamas for the party. It doesn’t have to be a sleepover either, it can be as much fun for a few hours during the day too!
Bring teddy bears, make blanket forts, tell stories and bring lots of snacks. Find some party games to play and you’ve got a fun evening which doesn’t cost much.
2. Prince/Princess Party
You’re always calling them your little prince or princess, so turn it into the party theme! Get everyone dressed up as royals and knights to get into the party spirit.
Hire a jumping castle for the backyard to give the kids a castle to defend. You can find jumping castles for sale for a good price and you can use them again and again.
There are lots of great games to play and get a Medieval themed playlist going to set the perfect mood.
3. Movie Party
If your child’s birthday falls at the time of year where it’s too cold to go outside, don’t worry. You can still throw them an amazing party they’ll love.
Turn your living room into a home theatre and set up some of your kid’s favorite movies to play. Invite their best friends around and make sure you have comfortable seats at the ready.
Grab some popcorn and snacks -there are lots of healthy and tasty ones to choose from. Hit the lights and settle down for a great day of movie magic.
4. Monster Party
If their birthday is near Halloween, or they love monsters, a monster themed party is always a winner.
Get dressed up in spooky and scary costumes, but not too scary if they spook easy! Dig out the Halloween decorations and set some spooky music to play and you’re sorted!
Find some monster themed party games to play and get everyone involved. You’re all set for a fun evening of spooks and laughs!
5. Arts and Crafts Party
As you know, kids can get bored fast and finding ways to keep them entertained can be a challenge. One great way to combat this is to throw an arts and crafts themed party.
Kids love to make things and it’s great for their creativity. So get some crafting supplies in and start making! Bring some of their friends around to join in and have fun seeing what you can make.
Another idea is to have everyone help make the birthday cake! Give everyone a task and let them decorate it themselves and they’ll enjoy it so much more.
6. Camping Party
All kids have a great sense of adventure, and every new experience feels so exciting.
If they love camping, or if they’ve never been before, set up a tent in the backyard. Or, get the guests to help you set it up! Create a trail for the kids to follow with things to find along the way.
Tell camp stories, roast mash-mallows and have a barbecue if you can. It will feel a lot like the real thing without even leaving the house!
7. Mystery Party
This one is a great idea for kids who are a little older, but younger kids can still join in the fun. Set up a who-dunnit mystery party where guests have to guess who the culprit is.
Send party invites to guests with their character on and get them to come dressed like them. It’s made all the more fun with silly accents and ridiculous weapons too!
Get them to follow clues and throw in some twists and turns to keep it interesting. There are a lot of tutorials online so you don’t have to spend too much time planning. It’s sure to be one they won’t forget in a hurry!
8. Pampering Party
Sometimes, all we need is a bit of rest and relaxation. You kid deserves to be pampered, so throw them a pampering party for the ultimate way to relax.
Turn your house into a beauty salon ready for the guests to arrive. Transform it into a mani-pedi station, hair salon, foot soak area and face masks.
Play some relaxing music and have some tasty drinks and snacks on hand for everyone. Once everyone feels rejuvenated, try out some yoga or stretching (or set up a game of Twister, everyone loves Twister!).
