It’s understandable that on your kid’s birthday, you’ll want them to have an experience they won’t forget. It can be difficult to imagine what this would be, so here are a few ideas to help you out.
Plan a Treasure Hunt
This one requires a bit of thought and planning but can be relatively cheap. In your home or garden, hide clues that lead to some ‘treasure’ hidden somewhere. Kids will be happy if the ‘treasure’ is just some candy. Bonus points if you add some pirate-themed decorations, and even more if you dress up too.
Have an Arts and Crafts Day
This one also can be cost-effective but requires some planning. Gather up some art materials and offer a range of different activities. This is great for winter birthdays, and the kids will have something fun to take home with them.
Hire a Storyteller
This one can be a little pricy, but have a search in your area to get an idea. Kids will love the immersive nature of this and will be carried away by the magic of the story. If you choose a theme that your kid loves this will likely stick in their mind forever.
