Kid's Birthday Party Ideas

Kid's birthday party ideas! Planning can be fun, easy, and inexpensive with these tips.

Are you thinking of having a birthday party for your child, well perhaps I can help with a few suggestions. Remember to keep it simple, don't plan every minute to keep the children busy, that makes for a birthday party that children won't remember as enjoyable. Sometimes parents will

spend a lot of money, plan every second and the children will be bored. Don't think that to please your child it takes a lot of expense: it doesn't.

Keep your guests to a minimum, you don't want to have more children at the home than you can keep up with plus the parents who may wish to attend also. Maybe for a four year old about six friends and as the child gets older add a few friends, maybe only their very special friends.

Don't invite the entire class to the party at your home as some of these children aren't your child's special friends and may not come anyway.

Remember you'll need recovery time after this party: make it simple, don't hurt your wallet and don't get too stressed and you and your child will have fun.

Before planning the party sit down and figure out exactly the amount of money you want to spend and then start planning, that is very important as it an get easily out of hand and more expense than you can afford. Decide also how much time you have that you can afford to spend planning



the party. You may work and have very little planning time and also may not can afford a lot of expense, please take all this into consideration before planning a child's birthday party.

Check out all your options, say for a planned package birthday party at the local pizza parlor and just having it at your home and doing it on your own. Most of the time the package deals are for so many children and the costs go up for each additional child and can get very expensive.

Also children seem to have lots of fun at home for parties.

Involve your child in the planning of this party,

sit down and let him tell you the names of the special friends he would like to come to the party, perhaps discuss the games he might like to play with his friends at the party, make suggestions to him and let him help you decide

on everything, think of the quality time you'll be spending together, also a very important part of being a committed parent.

Create a schedule for the party, say l0 minutes on one game, 20 minutes on another, the time for singing Happy Birthday, eating the cake and ice cream or whatever you decide to serve. You'll also need to decide on party prizes, party favors, the type of cake your child perfers.

Usually you can get a very attractive and delightful tasting cake at the bakery at your local supermarket in the design or motif your child might like for his particular age.

Let your child help you fill up the party favor bags: let him help you set up the games and get ready for the party, he'll love doing this and feel he has been a part of the planning. Above all enjoy the party as if you do you'll be ready for the one next year and yes he will want another and another.
