Your little one’s birthday is no doubt extremely special. So, what could you do to celebrate? You need to think beyond the boring backyard party with some games and magic show. So here are some of the most common but unique types of birthday parties you can throw for your kid.
- Teddy bear party
Every child needs to bring his favourite teddy bear to the party. You need to arrange a room with a separate seat for each kid. You don’t need chars exactly, even cushions would be fine. Beside each seat, place a picnic basket filled with adorable outfits for their teddy bears along with some goodies. Base all your decorations on the teddy bears. This is a perfect theme for a toddlers’ party, since all kids will remain indoors.
- Storybook character party
This could be really fun for the kids. All kids need to dress up as their favourite storybook character and arrive. At the party, they could be asked to speak about themselves and act out their characters. You can take pictures of each kid and hand them a copy too. They can also bring a few of their storybooks and exchange with their friends.
- Backyard carnival
So, this is a lot more different than the usual backyard parties. This is a carnival! As fun as it sounds, this may take more work than usual. If you have a big backyard, carefully plan out where each element will stand. You can have a merry-g-round, jumping castles, game stalls and even a clown. A face painting station and a balloon stall can add more colour and excitement to the party.
- Scavenger hunt
This will be better for teens since toddlers don’t really like walking around searching for things. The teens would find this competitive and challenging. You can ask them to get into groups or work individually to find the hidden treasure. Have little treasures along the way so that every child receives a gift, however the final treasure should only be found by one. This type of parties can be organized at a very low cost since you don’t have to get a jumping castle for hire in West Sydney or any magicians. A few gifts with some challenging clues, you are all set to go.
- Craft party
What you would usually do at a kiddies’ party is hand the little ones some goody bags however, it would be better if you could involve them in the making of those goodies. Kids can decorate t-shirts with their handprints, make jewellery, picture frames and many more.
