Tips for Throwing the Ultimate Kids Birthday Party

Posted on the 20 November 2017 by Cheekymeeky

Kid's birthdays are fun and so easy to do. Do them right, and you'll give your child a great party, great memories, and have brought him closer with his friends than ever before. When you want to throw the best children's party ever, you need to pull out all the stops. This means that instead of buying a small pack of balloons that you'll hurt your cheeks inflating, you go the extra step further. Follow this guide to ensure that this party is the best-dressed one yet.

  1. Ask Your Child for the Theme
    As it is your child's birthday, the first step that you should do is to ask your child what theme they would like. You should never assume what is currently "in" with your kid, because while they might love Batman and all of the Batman movies, it might be cooler to have a Captain America themed party. Allow your kid to choose what theme that they want, so that when the time comes, you are met with smiles rather than a tantrum.
  2. Balloons, Streamers, and Confetti

    Regardless of the theme chosen, there are some party staples that should make an appearance. Choose the colors so that they fit the theme, and go nuts. The more balloons, streams, and confetti there are, the better. Children love extravagant parties, because they rarely get to experience them. You could get lights and even cheap disco balls as well.

    Tip: Buy these items either from online or your local dollar store, and you'll be able to decorate the whole party for cheap. Be mom of the year and throw your child the best party, because you don't need to worry about overdoing it on the spending!

  3. Get Your Kid in On the Decorating

    Having the decorations is one thing, decorating with them is another. That is why you need to get your kid to help you with the decorating. This is a great way to ensure that your child is happy with the final result. As a bonus, it's also an excellent way to bond with your kid!

  4. Have a Cool Backdrop

    We live in a very digital age, which is why one of the best ways to make their birthday exciting, and for you to take the cutest photos, is to have a backdrop. This could just be a bunch of streamers against the wall, or it could be a temporary wallpaper design using tape. Whatever you choose, backdrops are fun ways to take photos and play dress up. You and your child will be grateful you set it up years down the line when you want to remember.


Planning the party doesn't just stop at the decorating, which is why the next step is to create the party invites. Paper invites can still be the best way to invite your children's friends over, especially if they are too young to own their own mobile phone. If they are older, you could leave the invites to your child, who might use a group chat, or Facebook to create the event that everyone can then RSVP to. It could also help you circumvent the pesky school policies that inhibit your child from only inviting their friends.

When you are hosting for other people's children, you need to make sure that you know what everyone's allergic to. It could be something easy so you can completely keep it out of your home, or it could be riskier. It is risky when the item that they are allergic to is a common every day item, for instance.

Tip: When you ask for allergies, make sure you know what kind of allergy they have. Can they not breathe or be near it? Or do they need to directly eat it in order for an allergic reaction to form?

Once you know about any allergies, it's time to get a poll on the food. You can have two main meals, for instance, if the party is big enough. Get your kid to ask their friends, and make, buy or otherwise prepare the top two favourite kinds of meals.


Though children are incredibly inventive, it never hurts to be a little bit more prepared. Have common, fun games set up like hit the piñata or surprise them all with a trip to an interactive aquarium. To help you choose which activities you should add to your party, follow these steps:

  1. Know Your Kid

    Activities can also be the best presents if you know your child well. For instance, taking your kid and all of their friends to the aquarium could be the best present ever - especially if it is a surprise. Know your kid, and you'll be able to reprise him with a great gift.

  2. Ask Your Kid

    You should, of course, always ask your kid. You don't want your child to feel like you've completely taken over his life, after all. Instead, ask him. It's always possible to incorporate his ideas alongside your ideas, and it guarantees that your child will have fun at his birthday party.

  3. Budget

    Budgeting is crucial, especially when you are considering taking your child out to a live show. You might be able to convince the other parents to buy their own child a ticket if you need the extra help. Either way, never underestimate the power of will.

  4. If Needed, Ask for Permission

    You should never take other children out from your home without their parents' prior permission. This will help you stay on good terms with the other mothers, and it will also help you make friends. Ask for permission, and you'll throw their party the right way.

Extra Surprises

What's a kid's party without a few surprises thrown in? One of the most popular and arguably best surprise is the goodie bag. These are usually small bags with treats inside, as a thank you for coming to your child's birthday. These surprises could also come in the form of guests that show up, like a grandmother, or it could be a game for their birthday that allows many people to play at once.

Birthday parties are fun to throw, because children are very easy to please. Just keep your child involved in the planning, ensure that you have the go-ahead from the other parents, and that you strive to make each year special.
