Kids’ parties can be a stressful event to plan. There is a lot of pressure to throw the perfect birthday party. But, while you spend time making sure every little thing goes right, the kids are there to have fun and be kids.
Don’t turn your kids’ party into an event that isn’t fun because of the stress. With these kids’ party ideas, you’ll have everything you need to entertain a whole party of kids, giving them good memories that will last a lifetime.
1. Come Up With a Theme
Themed parties can help narrow down what you’ll need for the party. If you pick a theme, the decorations, food, and entertainment all fall into place afterward because they’ll have to fit that theme.
Ask your kids what theme they’d like and go from there. Some common themes for a children’s party are princesses, dinosaurs, ballerina, Candyland, or video games.
Whatever your kids are into, you can incorporate these things into every aspect of the party. Plates, cups, napkins, the cake can all be fitted appropriately to accompany your theme. You can go all out with this and get actors to dress up as princesses or curate a kids’ party music playlist of favorite songs from princess movies, for example.
Party games can be themed as well, such as different themed board games or coming up with a fun twist for classics like a treasure hunt.
2. Decorating Desserts or Making Pizza Party
Have you ever been to a party as a kid where you and your friends got to make the food you’d be eating from scratch? This is a great way to bond with the kids and keep them busy and excited about dinnertime.
Decorating cupcakes or making a pizza from scratch are great party ideas of how to keep the little ones busy for a while. It teaches them new skills and how to be independent. It’s fun for them to play and learn hands-on.
The textures of the food they’re creating provide a sensory experience for the kids. This way, food is taken care of while so is an activity.
3. Pick a Location for a Kids Party
Choosing a location can be tricky. A kids’ party at your house may seem like a great idea, but it involves a lot of pre-planning and decorating and double the clean-up.
Having a party at a different location may cost a little more but requires a bit less DIY-ing. Different locations may include a theme park, farm party, bowling party, or a rockin gamin party.
Rockin gamin parties are great for both genders. There’s an option for getting manicures, hair styling, or makeup done. Plus, there’s space for arts and crafts, playing video games, dancing, and karaoke. While the girls get makeovers, the guys can have Wii game tournaments.
