No matter how old your kids are, fun kids’ birthday party ideas can make all the difference on their special day. It is equally important to keep things fun and exciting not only for the birthday celebrant but also for their friends, family, and guests. So, if you are finding it difficult to come up with something new, fun, and exciting, check out these three fun birthday party ideas.

#1. Have a ‘Themed’ Party

One good idea for a birthday party is to come up with an age-appropriate theme. Themed parties are all the rage and can add to the excitement and fun of everyone in attendance. The type of theme often varies depending on the age of the individual. Some common themed kids’ birthday ideas include:

  • Princesses
  • Superheroes
  • Dinosaurs
  • Monsters
  • Unicorns
  • Mythical
  • Medieval
  • Ponies
  • Animated cartoon characters
  • Building blocks
  • Cats
  • Dogs
  • Different animals

#2. Include a Competition and Games

Another fun birthday party idea is to include some sort of friendly competition and game. Kids of all ages, even big kids, want to have something to do. Otherwise, they will quickly get bored, be stuck to their phones, and the party will be a huge flop. 

The best way to engage kids in friendly competitions is with mini golf, mini bowling, arcade games, and laser maze challenges. Each of these activities can be done as head-to-head competitions or in teams. 

At Monster Mini Golf in Gastonia, our indoor glow-in-the-dark mini golf course and arcade gaming center is the perfect birthday party venue. Our Masters of Entertainment work with you to develop age-appropriate competitions, challenges, trivia, and other games to keep everyone engaged and have a monstrous time. 

Other options you could also consider include:

  • Scavenger hunts
  • Pin-the-tail on the donkey
  • Whack a pinata
  • Three-legged races
  • Sack races
  • Water balloon fights
  • Hide and seek
  • Laser tag

#3. Feature a Surprise and Prizes

While the birthday monster will definitely want presents and surprises, it doesn’t mean that their guests cannot also experience a surprise. Prizes are also recommended as rewards for friendly competitions, challenges, and games.

The surprises and prizes do not have to be anything huge. Small trophies or goody bags with small toys, candy, or treats are perfect. You could also include various arts and crafts items, puzzles, or anything else that fits the age group. 

At Monster Mini Golf in Gastonia, we can assist you with putting together surprises and goody bags for your birthday party. Additionally, all monsters win prize tickets in our monstrous arcade. They can redeem them in our prize redemption center for all sorts of glow-in-the-dark and monster-themed rewards. So everyone goes home with something after the birthday party. 

Honorable Mentions

Another good idea for a birthday party to make someone’s special day even more memorable is to include their favorite meal and drinks. Whether it is pizza, burgers, hot dogs, or something else, including food as part of your celebration is an excellent way for everyone to take a short break between the fun, thrills, and excitement. You can also surprise them with special candles for their cake, like the ones that go out and then relight.
