Kids are only kids for a short amount of time, so it’s important to make each birthday count. These five birthday party ideas are easy, affordable and will still rock your kid’s world.
Give kids the chance to play superhero for the day! All you have to do is make a cape and mask out of fabric and let the kids’ imaginations run wild. The children can pretend to play their favorite superhero or they can get really creative and make up their own name and powers.
Water adventure party
If your child’s birthday falls in the summer, what better way to celebrate than to bring everyone outdoors to enjoy the nice weather? Set up a “water park” in your backyard complete with sprinklers and waterslides. The kids will have a blast and you won’t have to worry about making a mess inside the house.
Arts and crafts party
If you’ve got a crafty child, invite his or her friends over for an arts and crafts party! You can set up different stations, such as a painting station, crafts station, etc., where the kids can get in touch with their creative sides and use their imaginations. Then, when everyone’s done, set up an art show so everyone can admire each other’s work.
Around the world party
Take the kids on a trip around the world in just one afternoon. Start by lining chairs up two-by-two and have kids take a plane ride to different countries. At each stop, have a game or activity ready that matches the destination. For example, if you stop in South Africa, take the kids on a safari and hand them binoculars and sun hats. This is a great way for children to have fun and learn about other cultures.
Your child has so many favorite colors, so why just choose one or two to decorate the party? Throw a rainbow party and make color the event’s main attraction. You can set up a colorful display of candy and food and have guests arrive in their most colorful outfits. For activities, the kids can make colorful friendship bracelets or play a fun game of Twister!
Throwing a fun birthday party doesn’t have to be expensive. Try out these five ideas and host a party the kids will never forget!
