For a parent, every year there comes a day when their shopping list is filled with birthday items like– muffins, chocolates, cakes, balloons and confectionaries. All these important items are just to make your kid’s birthday a memorable one for them and their friends. There are literally hundreds of birthday party ideas available; and whatever idea you choose to go with, you must make sure that you involve the kid in the preparations leading up to the big day.

For kids, a birthday celebration is all about having a good time with their friends and eating their favourite food. You need not necessarily have to throw a lavish party with buying expensive gifts to please the kid, but simple things like making a birthday cake of their favourite flavour or baking a muffin for them and their friends can give with great joy. Not to forget, no party is complete with good music, make sure that you have a list of happy birthday name song that the kids can dance to. Here are a few simple tips to plan a birthday party with your kid.


Every birthday party celebration starts with sending an invitation, it sets the tone for the party. You can get your kid involved in making the invitation calls to their friends to inform about the party venue and time. It would not only make the child feel excited about the big day, but it will also instil a sense of responsibility and confidence in speaking over phone. Also, you can help the kid to prepare an invitation cards; you can get ideas from the various DIY videos and make the lead up to the party more fun for your beloved one.


Decorations are an important aspect of a birthday party, it adds to the fun. If you are planning the decoration around a particular theme based on your loved ones interest like a Barbie theme or a superhero them, you can ask your child to creation a decoration as they want. Assist them in preparing a design and in choosing the decorative items. Let them blow the balloons, and place the glitters as they want. Allow the kid to choose the decorative items of their favourite colours and designs.

Preparing the menu

No birthday party is complete without food. Remember, the birthday celebration is about catering to the interest of your child. Make sure that you have their interest in mind while planning the menu. Ask the child to list down their favourite food items and see what you can include in the party menu. This will not only make him/her feel special and wanted, but it will also give him/her a huge sense of belongingness. You can also get them involved in the preparation process, like garnishing the cake or choosing the best toppings for the pizza. This will make the child feel even more excited.

Plan games

Apart from the food, decoration and exchanging gifts bit, the best part of a birthday party for the kids is the games. Ask the kid for different gaming ideas; the games they would like to play or the games they usually play at school with kids. Create a list of few games and get them involved in planning and executing the same. You can even plan a few games based on the theme you have chosen.

The most important part though is to ensure that you make the birthday boy/girl part of each and every game. If you have no specific theme, you can plan classic birthday indoor or outdoor games like DIY obstacle games, draw a tail on the donkey, indoor scavenger hunt etc. All said and done, make sure that you have a happy birthday name song list prepared beforehand and set the ball rolling for an awesome party.
