Throw A Super Simple Birthday Party!

Throw A Super Simple Birthday Party!

Celebrate someone special with a fun birthday party in his or her honor. This doesn’t have to be your fancy-type party. Instead, make things a little more kid-friendly and fun. Don’t worry about spills. Just make sure that all the guests are having a great time!

Most likely, the birthday boy or girl won’t be able to tell if you’ve spent 10 hours or 2 planning his or her birthday party. So skip the long hours and make this party quick and easy, but still awesomely cool.

Presentation Pointers:

  1. Set up your party with activity stations so the children know where they should be. These stations don’t have to be elaborate. A board game or Wii work just fine.
  2. Pin up a sheet on the wall, and ask guests to sign their names and add a personal message using a permanent marker. After the party ends, the sheet can be used as a tablecloth for next year’s party. 
  3. Forget really expensive party favors. A goodie bag only needs to include a small toy, some candy, stickers and something more personal and related to the birthday boy or girl.
