Plan a Best Children's Birthday Party on a Budget

Every child looks forward to their birthday as it’s one of the few days of the year when all of the attention will be on them, and the presents and party food are pretty good too!

While every parent wants to give their child everything they want on their birthday, the reality is it can hit the family budget hard, so here are a couple of tips to help you plan a fantastic birthday for your child without breaking the bank.

Fun doesn’t have to be expensive:

Having a birthday party at the local park instead of taking a group to an activity centre is a low cost fun option. Parks are great for the children to run around, for organised games and for water balloon fights (followed by a game of pick up the burst balloons). Keeping the children fed can be straightforward with an easy to organise picnic, which will also be relatively cheap.

Trim the guest list

If you do want to book an activity for the party, keep your birthday guest list small. Taking say three or four of your child’s close friends to the movies or a restaurant is a much more affordable way to celebrate their birthday than say taking 20 guests. It will also save you a logistical headache trying to make sure all of the children are in the right place at the right time.

Simple sleepovers

Kids love sleepover parties! All you need is a few DVDs, a couple of torch light games, some pizza and cake and you will have created a wonderful birthday for your child. If you have any trouble getting the kids to settle after all the excitement, you can just sit in the room with them, they’ll quickly settle down and fall asleep.

And, the most useful tip? Don’t try to compete with those parents who feel the need to throw an impressive extravaganza. Kids enjoy the simplest things.
