Fun and Inexpensive Theme Ideas for Kids Birthday Parties, have a backyard barbeque

  1. Backyard BBQ: If your little ones are having a birthday party during the summer months, why not throw a backyard BBQ? There’s so much fun to be had when you throw hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill. Not to mention, you can spend money on other stuff because you’re not wasting money on a venue. The great thing about BBQs is that everyone feels so welcome. You can invite adults and kids alike and everyone will have a great time.

children's party ideas - have an ice cream bar theme

2. Ice Cream Bar: Kids love ice cream and ice cream is actually pretty inexpensive. Throw a fun and inexpensive party for your kid by giving them an ice cream bar. You purchase several ice cream flavors and have plenty of toppings for everyone to choose from. Kids love making their own ice cream sundaes. The fact that they get to make their own will make their day.

3. Water Party: Again, the summer time is a perfect time to throw a birthday party. A water party is a very inexpensive idea when it comes to a birthday party. You can put out a little pool, set up a sprinkler, and even set up water balloons. Seriously, kids have a blast playing with water and there’s no doubt that this would be an awesome birthday party for a special little kid.

4. Arts & Crafts Party: Kids love doing arts and crafts. Why not bring that to the birthday party scene? You can easily do arts and crafts with a dozen kids and have a great time. You can even get your supplies at the Dollar Store! Kids LOVE arts and crafts and I think the adults would have a great time as well.

party themes for kids- have a luau or beach themed party

5. Luau: Another fun and inexpensive birthday party idea if throwing a luau. What a great way to celebrate a child’s birthday. You can buy cheap decor from Amazon.com, the dollar store or one of my favorite sources, Oriental Trading. There’s plenty of room to be creative with this idea! Play Hawaiian themed music and have a ton of fun dancing with those kiddos and having a great time.

6. Superhero Themed Birthday Party: Almost every child out there has a superhero costume of some sort. Throw a superhero themed birthday party at home. Have everyone dress up in their favorite costume and have superhero party favors. If you’re creative enough, you can save a ton of money doing this.

7. Painting Party: This is a personal favorite of mine, a painting party! You can even make your own paint to help your dollars stretch further. Have the kids bring an old t-shirt with them and paint away. You can paint t-shirts, canvases, or even a coffee mug. Limit the amount of kids you invite and this can be a very fun and inexpensive birthday party.

Throwing an inexpensive birthday party doesn’t need to have limits. You can actually throw an awesome party on the budget. The thing is that it takes time and effort. Start planning early, so you have no problem putting the time and effort into your fun and inexpensive birthday party!
