Children's Birthday Party Ideas
Kids Pamper Party
Pros - You can give the kids a spa experience without going to one!
Cons - A pamper party isn’t for everyone.
A kids pamper party is the perfect idea if you are wanting something a little more grown up and a little bit different. We offer an amazing kids pamper party that includes either 3 10 minute treatments of a manicure, toenail paint and mini facial. Or a 15 minute hair styling session and a 15 minute age appropriate make over! It’s a great way to give them an experience to remember.
Hire a Bouncy Castle
Pros - Everyone loves a bouncy castle, fun for everyone
Cons - Risk of injuries
Hiring a bouncy castle is an extremely popular thing to do if you are planning a kids birthday party at home or in a venue. It’s a great way to keep the party simple but still incorporate something that is fun for all of the kids. A bouncy castle is great too because wherever you are based you will be able to hire a bouncy castle near you.
Pros - Plenty of time for them to have fun and enjoy themselves
Cons - You will definitely end up with plenty of tired kids at the end
A sleepover is the perfect way to celebrate a kids birthday as they can get all their friends round, eat some nice food and watch movies. You can really personalise a sleepover too with matching pyjamas from a shop or personalised ones like these pyjamas from Etsy. You could also go all out with where everyone is sleeping with these sleepover tents!
Soft Play Area
Pros - Perfect for kids to go crazy
Cons - There’s risk of people injuring themselves
There are always some great indoor soft play areas that you can hire out for a kids birthday party. And usually when you do hire out a soft play area they have packages you can book that will include some sort of lunch and drinks for all the kids invited. A good thing about booking a soft play area is that you also don’t have to worry about anything breaking in your own home, all the kids can go wild in this fun play area.

What is a Good Time for a Kids Birthday Party?

How Many Kids Should You Have at a Birthday Party?
The usual rule is you invite to the party as many kids as your child’s age, plus one. But of course usually especially when their younger they want to invite their entire class. Which is usually a pretty common thing to do. For most function rooms and soft play areas they have a capacity of around 30 children for a party so its good to keep that in mind.
How Far in Advance Should You Send Kids Party Invitations?
Make sure you give at least two weeks but no more than four weeks when it comes to sending out kids party invitations. This way they have enough time to arrange how their getting there and to buy a present but not too much time so that they forget about the upcoming party.
