When it comes to hosting kids’ birthday parties, the possibilities are endless. Depending on your child, your budget, and what you can arrange, you can move from a simple tea party with a couple of guests to an elaborate get together involving whole classes, families, and everyone in between.
If you are struggling to develop an epic birthday party idea for your child, this post looks at some of your options for different budgets.
The At-Home Party
At home doesn’t necessarily mean a boring party. These days you can choose many different options for your home party if you have the space. From renting out mini sleepover tents to hiring circus equipment or providing a full-on cinema experience, at home parties can be as simple or elaborate as you choose. Book the best in kids’ entertainment for their age or interest and host the party at home to avoid spending out on venue hire.
Disco parties can be an excellent way for your child to get together with their friends and burn off some energy. Hire a venue DJ and get some food, and you can allow them to have the best time with little involvement. All you need to do is put some music on and let them dance it out. Pull together a theme and decorations to dress up the venue, have plenty of food and drinks on hand, and you’re good to go.
Birthday parties are a great excuse to visit that new venue you have wanted to take your kids to or revisit a familiar favourite place. Traditional birthday party ideas involve bowling, cinema, or soft play. These days, you can book a wide range of parties from paintballing to laser quest, go-karting, rock climbing or even skiing parties. Booking a party at an entertainment venue can mean less work involved for you, and everyone has a great time. If you’re after something extra special with little input on your end, this is a great option.
Whether in your house or at a hotel that allows children to stay over (such as at theme parks if you wish), a sleepover can be a great way to extend the festivities and drag out the celebrations a little longer. Not just for older children, younger children can often want to share this time with family and friends, and a sleepover is a great way to do this.
If your child is already part of a sporting club or activity, why not ask the club if they hold birthday parties. This way, you will know most of the children are already interested in the theme and enjoy it. You can allow them to do what they want in an environment you are familiar with, and people invited know what to expect. It is a win-win all around.
When it comes to finding the perfect birthday party for your child, the best thing you can do is involve them in the process and have a say in their day to make sure it is a big success.
