Themed party

Frozen parties are really big at the moment. I am sure if you are a parent you have probably been to at least one already. Whilst you don’t necessarily have to throw a Frozen party, you can throw a themed one. Whatever your child loves, be it Disney princesses or superheroes, find a way to incorporate this into the party. Fancy dress is a really fun option. Think about getting a themed cake and themed party bags too.

Hire a bouncy castle

If you are having a garden party for your child’s party, why not add a bit of excitement with bouncy castles. The kids will love being able to bounce around all day long. Plus there are a load of different types of castles you can get. If a regular bouncy castle isn’t fancy enough, you can get one with slides or assault courses. You can hire inflatables easily and you don’t have to worry about any of the set up because the hiring company will take care of it all. This is an easy solution for parents who don’t have a great deal of time to get everything organised.

Go to a theme park

The UK has some really great theme parks for kids and a lot of the time you can get 2-4-1 vouchers from the back of cereal packets. Chessington World of Adventures is really fun for any child that loves animals. They have a zoo and a Sea Life centre as well as the obligatory rides. Legoland too is a great choice. They have lots of rides for younger children and fun live shows.

Something active

If your child loves to be sporty, there are a whole host of awesome things you can organise. For kids who love speed, try go-karting. This is a great option for older children. You can also take your child to Go Ape where they have to navigate a treetop obstacle course. Bowling and ice skating can be fun too. Just make sure to put the lane barriers up if you go bowling.

Scavenger hunt

This is a really good idea for older children who love puzzles and adventure. Don’t assume that you have to have an outdoor space to pull this idea off. You can do it in your own house if need be. Alternatively you can do it in your garden, if you have one, or in the local park. Create some crafty clues and hide prizes in certain places for your child and their friends to find. Add an element of competition by creating two teams and see which one wins.
