Does your child have a birthday coming up? Do you want to put together the kind of party that is fun, exciting, unique, and memorable? If so then you need to use a little out-of-the-box thinking and get creative with your planning. It doesn’t have to be big, elaborate, and over the top but it does need to be special. To help spark inspiration and creative thinking, we’ve got some out-of-the-box ideas for your child’s next birthday party.
Turn the Party Into a Fun Learning Experience
How would you like to transform the typical birthday party into a learning experience that is fun and interesting? It’s not that hard to do as long as you know what your child loves in terms of hobbies and interests. You can hire an instructor to come to your house and teach the kids a skill or a hobby they can then participate in.
Some great examples include:
- Cooking class
- Painting class
- Sewing class
- Beading or jewellery making class
- Comic book drawing class
- Woodworking class
The list goes on from there. Just be sure to pick something they can actively take part in. This will ensure no one is bored and that the party is one to remember.
A Drive-Thru or Walk-Thru Dinosaur Experience
Dinosaurs are always a popular birthday party theme for kids, as they just can’t seem to get enough of these mysterious giants. So why not arrange for a drive-thru or walk-thru dinosaur experience so they can feel like they are part of the dinosaur’s world. You’ll find these experiences all across the country and they tend to feature a collection of life-sized animatronic dinosaurs with realistic sounds and movement. You can keep the party small and just family, or speak to the venue about hosting the birthday party on-site.
For a dinosaur lover, this would be a memorable party that would be hard to beat.
Visit an Escape Room – a Thrill-Seekers Adventure
In the past few years, escape rooms have become extremely popular and are now found all over the country. These are puzzle-based adventures where you are trapped in a room and must work your way through a series of clues to escape within the allotted amount of time. It feels incredibly exciting while you’re in the process of looking for and solving the clues, and it also promotes teamwork so all the kids can get involved. Just be sure that the escape room you pick is suitable for kids.
If you’d prefer an online experience, there are also many great virtual escape rooms.
Backyard Camping Adventure
For those with a backyard, why not create a backyard camping adventure for the kids? You can set up some tents, do some grilling on a brick bbq grill for dinner, and roast marshmallows in the evening. If the kids are old enough, they can even sleep outdoors and make it feel like a wilderness retreat.
Time to Put On Your Thinking Cap
