Like most parents, you want your kid's birthday to be really special and memorable.
And, you're also likely to be asked by your kid to throw a birthday party. Children
love having their friends over to help them celebrate and have fun. Here are some
party-planning ideas to help you host a fabulous party that your child will remember
for a long time to come.
How to Plan a Birthday Party at Home for Children
1. If possible, start planning your party 4 to 6 weeks ahead. Allow plenty of time
for online shopping, cake orders and getting friends, neighbors or family to help.
2. The first place to start when planning a children birthday party is with a birthday
party theme. Selecting a theme will help you organize thoughts and then plan all
your party supplies – party hats, balloons, confetti, party plates, banners, etc.
When selecting a theme, first ask what your kids would like. Do they have a favorite
character, sport, interest or dream that would make a fun party theme?
For instance, if your kid is a big fan of Mickey Mouse, you could set that as the
theme. Then shop around for birthday party supplies that are decorated with characters
from the Disney family.
The best way to buy cheap party supplies is to shop online; you save oodles of time.
There are many large online retailers who specialize in party products and they will
often offer you discounts on shipping for larger orders.
3. Decide who will be invited, what kind of food/snacks and drinks to serve and the
party venue. Will the party be at home or outside, and compare the pros and cons
of both options.
If you want to organize the party elsewhere other than your home, then look for its
location and size so as to accommodate all of your guests comfortably. Take extra
precautions if there are stairs, swimming pool, glass windows and doors, busy streets,
When it comes to planning the party menu, you want to make sure that no one has food
allergies. It's always a good idea to ask each kid's parents just in case a kid happens
to have food allergies.
4. Make the invitations. If you rather make your own party invitations than purchasing
ready made ones, here's what you can do – take a photo of your kid posing with his
or her favorite plush toy.
Print that picture on the front of the invitation cards and write "Mickey & Friends
want you to come to (your kid's name) Birthday Party." Be sure to include date, time,
place and your phone number to RSVP.
5. When planning games and activities, make sure they are safe and easy for your
kid's age group. You can make a pinata, have a pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey game ready
or have a kids movie on hand for all to enjoy. For more kids game ideas, you can
always search online.
6. You might also want to have prizes and party bags for everyone. You can buy party
bags ready made up if you are running short on time but it often works out cheaper
to buy everything separately and make them up yourself.
7. Smile and don't forget the camera.
With these tips in mind, planning a fun children party for your child really easy
and you won’t be pulling your hair out!
