Fun birthday party ideas and activities by age group

When considering birthday party ideas for toddlers, most enjoy simple party activities such as playing with balls, water play, bubbles, giant cartons, or some colorful play bucks with a variety of cookie cutters.

Preschool age

Preschool children enjoy simple party games, movement, and art activities. It is helpful to plan the activities with our child. Consider mural painting, dance, and freeze when the music stops, or a cooking project.

Kindergarten age

Kindergarten and elementary school children will probably have more elaborate birthday party ideas and activities in mind. If budget permits, consider an activity such as miniature golf or bowling. A theme party where children make puppets and perform a puppet show is a fun option and not too costly.

Toddler’s age

Older children may request a sleepover birthday party. Consider whether this is something we would like to supervise recognizing that we probably would not get much sleep. That said a sleepover with a small group can be an amazing close time for children that they will remember for years.

Are you looking for creative kids party for toddlers? Children of all ages enjoy being creative. Think about decorating party hats, making picture frames and putting a group photograph of the children at the party, or having children decorate their own cupcakes or cookies.

There are many factors to think when planning a child’s birthday party and stress should not be one of them. Remember that every family is unique and the ultimate goal is to plan a fun and memorable birthday party for our child.

Creative kids’ birthday party ideas for busy parents

Invite online

Forget stamps and postage. We can even put a cute picture of our kid on the invitation. As a cost-free alternative, create a quick Facebook invite.

Pick the best day of the week for our convenience

For busy parents who work during the week, parties on Sunday give us more time to shop and get ready for the affair, but Saturday parties give us more time to clean up afterward.

Shorten the length of time.

Our family is busy with work, school, and other activities. Guess what? So is everyone else’s. Having a shorter party is fine. Plan birthday party for kids in Singapore just one hour and two to three hours for older kids.

Pick the right venue

For busy parents, booking a party venue that will take care of everything including décor, food, and entertainment might be the best bet.

Have a park party

If we are on a budget, consider hosting a laid back party at our local park. Kids can run around and enjoy the playground while adult guests enjoy a picnic.
