Here are some great kids birthday party ideas. If you have an older child between the ages of 11 and 13 have a friend teach them how to prepare a healthy dish. Have all of the children join in at the party and sit them down to enjoy what they have made. You can also divide the group up to have a few children to make some healthy drinks or smoothies for the group.
Another activity for older children is to make tie dye t-shirts. This would be something that everyone can take home. You will need to go to your local craft store to get your supplies.
Charm bracelets are a hit for the preteens. You will want to have lots of beads and try to add some charms in the batch of beads. If you ever run out of ideas most kids birthday party ideas can come from the children themselves. Also happy-kid-birthday-parties.com will also give you some really ideas for your childs party.
Make your own natural makeup. They have kits at the craft shops where young ladies can make lip gloss. Also have manicures at the party where the preteens can pamper themselves and put on their favorite nail polish for them to enjoy.
Face painting is another great craft for a birthday party. The preteens can make face paintings of butterflies, flowers, and animals. Make sure that you buy the right type of paint that is made for face painting when you go to the craft store.
For toddlers and children under the age of 10 try a petting zoo. Have the professionals bring in rabbits, puppies, and kittens for the children to feed, pet, and hold. If this is not available go to your local zoo for the party. The children will enjoy the animals and have fun eating at the zoo. Children also learn a lot in this type of environment.
You may want to have a clown to come to the party to entertain young children. If you cant find a clown to come you may want to be the clown yourself. You can order a clown outfit online or rent one at your local costume store. If youre looking to save money make a clown outfit. You can go to your sewing center and buy the fabric and pattern. With a little imagination you could come up with a really nice clown outfit and the makeup you may need , order this online or you can go to your local craft store.
Young children like to work with food. Make some cupcakes and have the children make smiley faces. What fun to be creative with some frosting and then you get to enjoy eating the creation also. If you run short on cake recipes happy-kid-birthday-parties.com has quite a few great cake recopies to help you out.
Nothing is like a piata. The piata is really good for kids of all ages. The piata comes in many shapes and colors. For most piatas when you have little children you will need to fill the piata with little toys and candy. If you have older children you will want to fill mostly with candy. Now if you have some preteens you may want to fill the piata with play jewelry like beaded necklaces and bracelets.
