5 Tips for Planning the Perfect Kids' Birthday Party, Greece, New York

In many families, big parties are a tradition on kids’ birthdays. These are times of festivity and celebration; planning them, however, can feel like a time-consuming headache. It doesn’t have to be! By focusing on fun rather than complexity and using simple activities like bounce houses — guaranteed to provide a good time — you can easily orchestrate the perfect party.

Bounce Houses & Other Tips for Fun Birthday Parties

1. Serve Your Child’s Favorite Snacks

Rather than spending hours on elaborate food preparations, simply fix your child’s favorites! Snacks like popcorn, hot dogs, and tater tots are all easy and delicious. For healthier options, put out some baby carrots and other veggies on a tray with dip.

2. Go Simple & Fun for Games

There’s no reason to waste time coming up with complex activities for your children and their guests — not when the classics are more enjoyable. Scavenger hunts are easy to put together and will keep your child entertained for a few hours. Piñatas let children get some of their energy out. Don’t forget to build in lots of time for free play, as that’s probably what the kids will enjoy most.

3. Make a Bounce House or Other Rental the Main Event

They’ll also involve very little work for the adult organizers, which leaves you free to focus on other tasks.

4. Remember That Cheap Decorations Are Often Best

Kids care about how fun things are, not how expensive. There’s no need to purchase costly decorations — just use easy things like “Happy Birthday” banners, balloons, and colored streamers. You could even have your kids help decorate by choosing pictures to print out and post on the walls.

5. Use an Event Location if Your House Is Too Small

Worried that you don’t have enough space for all the guests and games? Why not outsource your needs? Find a party location close to you that features fun events like obstacle courses, inflatables, and other activities for children of all ages. This will cut down even more on preparation time for you and will be just as fun as hosting the celebration at your house.
