This kind of help will ensure that you don't have to spend too much and will make the celebration a huge success. Take a look at some great ideas to inspire you.
The jumping castle is a great and fun activity for kids birthdays. Have one inflated in your backyard, or simply arrange for this activity at your local park. This is sure to keep the little ones occupied for hours together. Just ensure they don't eat anything before they get onto the jumping castles.
A circus birthday party theme is appreciated by all kids. You may hire clowns, magicians, fairies, jugglers, etc., and ensure that the children have the time of their lives. This will be an unforgettable experience for them. Though this idea might be slightly expensive; however, if you can afford it, it will definitely be worth every penny you spend.
Face painting is another great choice for little ones. Include tattoo painting and face or eye masks to complete their looks. A theme party centered on cartoon characters may include face painting as a choice for one of the many activities in it. Children can be asked to have their favorite character painted on their face, and then imitate the character for some fun. This one is quite an engaging activity for them.
Karaoke and Dance
For kids who love to sing and shake a leg, karaoke can provide some great entertainment. All you need is a karaoke machine with some easy-to-sing songs. While some can sing, the rest can dance to these tunes. You are sure to have one of the best parties for your child ever. This is a good activity not only for the younger ones, but it can also make for a great idea for teens.
Apart from the activities mentioned above, you can also have the kids indulge in some interesting birthday party games. Block your driveway to make a bowling alley for the little ones. Use tin cans or old jars as pins, and have a small ball that they can easily roll to knock off the pins. Keep a fun prize for the winners of the game.
Other ideas include hosting art activities where kids can create their own crafts, and take them home as party favors. Treasure hunts, story reading sessions, etc., can all be included in these methods of providing fun and entertainment for the little ones.
Use one or more of these ideas, and give the kids an experience they will never forget. In fact, with these ideas, you will set a benchmark against which the fun at all other birthday parties will be measured. Have fun!
