  1. Kid Friendly Foods: Keep the food simple and the main guests in mind. Ditch the chicken salad sandwiches for peanut butter and jelly sandiwhces. For drinks, consider having a milk and cookie bar with cartons of milk and freshly baked cookies.
  2. Choose a venue that is kid friendly. A children’s museum, a zoo, or aquarium are all great locations for a special event like a birthday party. You could event take the party outdoors to a camp or retreat center. Have a smore station and play some field games. Use our free service to help you find the perfect venue.
  3. Activities: Have a magician or even hire a princess to come and read a story to the kids. A bounce house is always a good option and can easily be set up in an open garden area.
  4. Experience to Remember: Choose a location that has a garden and have a tea party. Complete the experience with individual cakes for each attendee, have an activity of decorating big floppy hats or making flower necklaces.
  5. Movie: Reach out to a local movie theater to have a private screening of a children’s movie. Have costumed character on hand to take pictures on the red carpet with the kids as they walk in to the theater. Don’t forget the popcorn and sugary candy snacks!
  6. Mini Picasso: Choose a museum and have a painting station set up for the kids to get creative. This is sure to be a special event for the littlest picasso's in your life to get their creative juices flowing.
