7 Tips for Throwing a Budget Friendly Kid’s Party

Your child has a birthday coming up soon. But you are afraid that it’s going to cost a lot of money. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be expensive to give your child a memorable party. Below are seven tips that you can use to save money while giving your child a fun birthday party.

1. Timing’s Everything

One of the best times to plan a party is between 2 and 5. The reason for this is because the kids aren’t going to come expecting to be given a meal. You can save money on actual food and just have snacks or ice cream and cake.

2. Plan Ahead

Your child’s birthday is the same day each year. So go looking for supplies ahead of time. This is going to give you time to shop around for the deals. You’ll also avoid running out the day of and having to buy items you forget at high prices. If you scope out places like the dollar stores you can find a lot of great deals.

3. Send Digital Invites

Paper invites can be expensive. First you have to buy the invites, and then you have to send them using stamps. But if you send digital invitations, you are going to save a lot of money.

4. Do a Dual Party

There was an episode of the show “Arthur” where two children had the same birthday. So they had a party for the two of them. This is such a great idea. If you know of another child who has a birthday close to your child’s birthday, you can split that cost. But each child should get their own cake.

5. Talk to Friends and Family

Do you know of anyone who has a cool job or can do something cool, like do magic? You can always ask them to come and entertain the kids. They are going to be a lot less than an entertainer. If you think about it, chances are, you can come up with some great ideas.

6. Don’t go Crazy

This is especially true when your kids are really little. Toddlers aren’t’ going to remember huge birthday parties. Have a party at your home or even have it at the park. Remember your child’s birthday, but it doesn’t mean that you have to pay a lot of money.

7. Make Your Own Favors

A fun way that you can give your child’s guests a favor is to have them make their own favors. You can set up a craft that goes with your child’s theme. You can find a lot of great fun craft ideas online. Not only will they have a favor to take home, but they will also have a craft they made themselves.

The next time your child has a birthday coming up, use these tips to help the costs to stay down for their birthday party. They’ll have a fun time with their friends and your wallet will be a lot happier too.
