Never quite sure what’s the best way to celebrate your child’s birthday? Looking for something a little creative that’s doesn’t require spending tons of money? Well, there are many simple and fun ways that you can create a birthday party for your child that he/she won’t ever forget from the comfort of your own home.
For starters, there’s nothing more than kids love than going out and getting a little messy every once in a while. Try renting a blow-up water slide and filling up water balloons so your kids can go a little crazy while having a safe, fun time. On a nice, hot summer day, kids will enjoy the waterpark theme as the parents enjoy watching them while sipping cold lemonades under their umbrellas. This is a simple way to keep the kids entertained all day.
Many tween girls love to create things. Channel that interest into a craft-themed party. Buy some unfinished items such as wooden trinket boxes, unpainted pottery, T-shirts, picture frames or bags. Present the guests with whatever is needed to decorate their nice blank slate, whether it be paints, sparkles, tye dye, glitter, markers or any other decorative item, and let them go to town. The items needed to make this party a go to won’t cost a ton, and the kids will leave the party with something special that they made in their own individual style.
There probably isn’t an age group that’s better suited for scavenger hunts than tweens, and if you’re going to throw or host a hunt, you’ll need a few good scavenger ideas. The key is to put some thought into the items you will be hiding and, of course, create the sneaky clues that are also a large part of the draw. Kids will work against the clock to see who can find the buried treasure, such as gift certificates, candy, and more. Kids love these hunts because they create a bit of competition, but can also be silly and exciting for them to see who can figure out the clues.
Those are just a few of the many wonderful party ideas for a birthday party that can be thrown at home. A few others are indoor camping parties, cooking parties, spa parties, and many more. And don’t forget that sometimes less is definitely more. Kids don’t need a fancy party to have a good time. What they want is to spend time with you and their friends doing something fun.
