Organizing a birthday party for kids is often a very tedious affair. Right from the invitations to the menu and the games and decorations, everything takes up time. The wrapping up of the party is another headache and can leave you completely exhausted. While you may be okay with putting in so much effort for a birthday or two, it can get very tedious if you had to do it every year. Also the fact that most of us have two or more kids, which means several birthdays in a year, makes life all the more complicated.
The trick is to come up with simple birthday party ideas that are special and successful without being tedious and heavy on the pocket. Some such ideas are listed below :
Hit the theaters
A simple way to eliminate the decorations and all other such cumbersome tasks from a birthday party is to take the kids for a movie. If you are able to keep the numbers small, it will be a cake walk for you. No need to bother with organizing games to keep the children busy or ensuring that they don’t get into trouble. Everyone sits down and watches the show while munching on the popcorn. Once the movie is over you can take them to the food court, have them order, cut the cake and birthday over. All the fun of the birthday party is retained while you don’t have to bother with the food, the decorations, the games and most importantly the cleaning up afterwards.
Visit the Zoo
Another great birthday party idea is a trip to the zoo. You can eliminate all the tedious stuff and simply carry lemonade and sandwiches for the kids. Let them enjoy the animals and play around in the zoo. No need to bother with games and decorations and most of all fancy food. Again here the trick is to keep the numbers small so that the party does not get out of hand
Fast food joints
There are a lot of fast-food joints like KFC, MacDonald, Pizza Hut, etc that offer some great economical deals for kids birthday parties. They will decorate the place for you and also offer you the back gifts too. Some deals will include a magician or a tattoo maker, thus adding more to the party. These parties work out real well for parents who simply arrive with the kids at the venue and enjoy the party.
There are many such simple birthday party ideas that can be planned within 24 hours. Simply send out the invitations via e mail and you have your party rolling. Remember, the successful birthday parties are not always the expensive ones. With a bit of imagination you can take your kid’s birthday celebrations to an all new high and that too without feeling the pressure on your pocket. So get that imagination rolling and make the birthday celebration fun for your kids as well as easy on your.
