Planning your child’s birthday party is both exciting and often overwhelming. With so much to think about it’s not always easy to know where to begin! From the theme to the numbers, music, the food, party bags, the location, decorations, duration, not forgetting gifts the birthday boy or girl!

The biggest piece of advice I can give you, is to remain calm and read on for 5 kids birthday party ideas.
Jump right in
If you’re not overly keen on hosting the birthday party at your house then, that’s certainly understandable. So, why not let someone else worry about the clean up operation afterwards? Trampoline parks are becoming a hugely popular location for kids birthday parties, especially if your child has grown out of soft play areas and is looking for something cool. What could be more fun than a huge warehouse sized room that’s filled with brightly coloured, super-sized and interconnected trampolines? Not forgetting other aero acrobatic entertainment such as foam pits, slides and games galore! The size of parties they cater for will vary per site, so get in touch with your nearest trampoline park and get some information.
Again, if you’re no longer tempted to host the party at home and your child only wants to invite a smaller number of closer friends, rather than the entire class, then a bowling party could be ideal. Kids parties usually involve two games of bowling followed by good food, cake, ice cream and party bags. With usually all the extras (bar the birthday cake) provided for by the venue. It’s a mildly competitive atmosphere that’s super fun!
A tea party
If you’re brave enough to host your child’s birthday party at home and they enjoy the finer things in life, then a quintessentially English tea party might be right up their street! Invite guests to arrive in their best outfits and serve juice from dainty tea cups, splendidly sweet cakes, decadent treats and gorgeous little sandwiches. They can play traditional party games and even try some arts and crafts.
A beauty party
Both boys and girls will love this pampering party! You don’t have to go to an expensive high street salon either, you can recreate a salon experience at home; all you need is a little imagination. Kids can soak their feet in bowls of warm soapy water, have their nails painted at a makeshift nail bar. Enjoy a kid friendly facial (complete with slices of cucumber for the eyes) and maybe even splurge on some temporary tattoos. Bliss.
A creepy crawly experience
If you’re struggling for entertainment ideas for the party, then how about something a little creepy and a little crawly? You can book an exotic pet party experience and a team of expert handlers will bring the wow factor to you. From tarantulas to lizards, snakes to giant snails, you’ll be able to choose from a range of party packages to find the one that’s ideal for your child and their friends!
