What do you need for a kids birthday party? Younger kids don’t need a lot of decorations. It can be over stimulating for them. Use a few basic party decorations and supplies. Plan a fun game or two. Make the games easy and fun. Pin the tail on, Musical chairs and freeze dance are all good ideas. Make sure you give a party prize to each child, this way there are no losers! Parties are fun so make sure each child feels special!

Kids birthday cakes are special, so make sure yours fits the party theme you have decided on. This does not have to be an expensive feat…you can make a party cake yourself and decorate it. It’s easy when you buy a party cake topper. You can bake and frost your cake and put the cake topper right on top! Cake toppers come in most party theme ideas. Another popular party cake topper is an edible cake image. That’s a picture that has been printed onto an edible wafer or frosting. You can personalize this by sending a picture of your child to a company who makes these edible images. Imagine the look on your child’s face when they see their own picture on top of the special birthday cake you have made for them! Imagine everyone’s surprise when you tell them you made the cake yourself!

Birthday party ideas for kids need a little party gift. Whether it’s a game prize or a goodie bag, try to supply a small gift for each child. Free coloring pages are an inexpensive way to fill this need. You can also find stickers or temporary tattoos to give as a gift.

Make your birthday ideas for kids fun, but keep your party short. Young kids don’t need a party that goes on for hours. They tire easily, even though it seems as though their energy levels never wear down.
