Birthdays are a wonderful occasion to shower your little one with lots of gifts, amazing food, and the ultimate birthday party. However, being a parent in the modern world makes it more stressful when you’re constantly comparing your party to others online…
Does that sound familiar? Or, are you looking for easy birthday party ideas that are affordable and fun for your children? Then, you’ll find everything you need in this article.
Celebrating your child on their birthday is not about breaking the bank and spending lots of money, the most important thing is the time and energy you put into the little details of the day. As long as you put your love into their birthday, your child will have the best day.
So, here’s a list of easy birthday party ideas for kids…
Sometimes the best things are right in front of us. In the case of a birthday party, sometimes all you need is your home and some creative decorations. A common misconception is that you need to rent a big venue or take your children somewhere else to celebrate their birthday.
However, your home can often be the perfect place to host a birthday party. For example, a classic birthday party idea is hosting a sleepover.
A sleepover is a good idea for children of any age as you can adapt the activities and food depending on how old your children are. Plus, you can plan so many different activities to do at the sleepover.
Here’s a list of fun sleepover activities:
- Glow in the dark disco
- Hire an entertainer
- Cooking challenges
- Home spa
- Indoor obstacle course
- Midnight snacks
Next on the list of easy birthday party ideas is an outdoor cinema night.
Even though this birthday idea is weather-dependent that doesn’t mean that it can’t work during rainy days either. With the right cover or shelter, you can still make an outdoor movie night work.
Alternatively, you can host this birthday party in spring or summer when the weather is guaranteed to be warmer. All you need to do is gather together some cosy blankets, put up some fairy lights, and prepare enough snacks for a whole evening of hungry kids.
This option is particularly good if you’re concerned about socially distanced parties.
Nowadays it’s rare to see a child without a screen in front of their face. Nothing beats some time outdoors with your family and friends where you can connect to nature and share memories outside.
A camping party is an easy birthday party idea as all you need is a car big enough for the guests, the right equipment, and a safe location to go to. Although this suggestion requires a little more safety preparation such as first-aid kits and emergency numbers…
If you plan correctly, it can be an incredible birthday party for your children. Just imagine an evening huddled around the fire, roasting marshmallows, and reading a ghost story before bed. Doesn’t that sound like heaven? Well, you can make it happen if you want to!
After spending days at school and doing homework your kid deserves some relaxation and time to be creative!
Having an art party allows you and your kid’s guests to get inspired and draw anything they like. They can use paint, markers, glitter, glue, and whatever else you can find at your local art store. You can even hang up a bedsheet and let children use their hands and feet to paint.
Your child will love it.
This birthday idea is perhaps the easiest. Pizza and party, what could go wrong? Again, you can host this event at home or take your party group to a local restaurant. However, if you would like to make it more exciting you can get ingredients and let the kids make their own pizza.
Even better you can book a pizza course and let your children learn about the wonders of pizza making from experts. That way, you can enjoy making this meal together and plan in future family pizza nights.
If you have a little one that loves sports then going to a sports event could be the ideal choice for their next birthday party. You can either go to a local football match, or golf tournament. Afterwards, you can go to your house and have a sports competition together!
At the sports game, you can give everyone a t-shirt with their name, their own snack bag, and a team souvenir to take home. It’s an easy way to use sports and make a birthday party out of it.
It’s never too early to learn the importance of self-care. In fact, a birthday is a perfect time to pamper your child with a relaxing spa day at home. Just like with the sports party you can design individual dressing gowns, eye-masks, and drinking cups.
You can set up different stalls for hair, makeup, and massages. The little ones can get their own goodie bags full of souvenirs to take home with them so they have something to remember the day by. Plus, the mums and dads can join in too!
As you can see there’s something for everyone on this list. So, pick your favourite and enjoy the party planning process!
