If you’re looking to have a kid’s birthday party that’s both simple and memorable but doesn’t bust your wallet, you’re not alone. The key to this endeavor is to keep children excited and engaged.

Thankfully, there are now a plethora of fantastic children’s birthday party features. Here are five of the best kid’s birthday party ideas!


1.  Backyard Carnival

Set up booths for face painting, ring-toss or maize holes, fake tattoos, and outdoor sports like soccer or DIY mini golf.

The options are never-ending when it comes to what you can include. You only need a little imagination to create an entertaining session. You can also find a daring adult who’s up for some face-bombing by whipping cream on their face!


2.  Karaoke Party

If you’re looking for a wild and crazy party theme, go no further than this one. Everyone will have to flex their singing skills and go up to the microphone in this event. If you don’t have access to a karaoke machine, there are plenty of options available online for those without them. With a foam mic and YouTube’s SingKing channel, you’ll have hours of entertainment.

Make some iPod-shaped invitations with the help of your child. Make sure to ask your guests to tell you what their favorite song is so that you can prepare a music playlist in advance. Keep the beverages flowing and the snacks on hand for your guests.


3.  Arts and Crafts Party

Among the many options for children’s activities include painting pottery, crafting jewelry, and designing a treasure chest, as well as crayons parties, in which they can have an art contest.

You can also bring big sheets of painting canvas that you tape flat on the ground or outdoor paving stones, so that young ones may go wild and experiment with various painting techniques and drawings.

You can also engage them in designing flags which you can fly with the best flagpole ropes at the end of the party. Little artists will have a blast!


4.  Sports Party

Plan a physically strenuous day of activities. Organize a fun event for your child’s friends, such as horseback riding, soccer, climbing, whitewater rafting, laser tag, paintball, or even a picnic at the beach. Even if you don’t have to put in any effort, this event will charge you more. To keep costs down, you may prepare a barbecue to enjoy after the games.


5.  Dance Party

Kids entertainers aren’t always the best option for older children, who may choose a more adult-themed event instead. A DJ for a children’s party can be a lifesaver in this scenario. You can count on them to get everyone on the dance floor and have a blast.


6.  Puppet Party

Kids absolutely love a good puppet show. You can hire a puppet show performer to put up and deliver the performance, which will have your party guests laughing and yelling with delight as the story unfolds.


7.  Glam Party

Children’s glam parties can be delivered by beauty salons and independent beauty businesses. They will come to a location of your choice and do manicure, hair, and make-up services for your party guests. Adults and teenagers alike will enjoy this activity!



It is crucial to lay out the party’s finances before the festivities begin. In addition to the venue, invites, refreshments, and fun party games, deciding on a theme for your child’s birthday party lets the rest of the planning process go more smoothly. You don’t need to spend a lot of money to throw a great party with great activities and gorgeous invitations and décor.
