Okay, you've got all the decorations and food set for your kid's birthday party, now what? You have a bunch of little kids to entertain for a couple of hours, but what are they all going to do?


Don't sweat it! We've come up with 10 fun activities for your kid's upcoming birthday party.


Dress-up Photo Booth: Before the party starts, set the mood by decorating the party area with balloons, streamers, and banners. You can also create a fun photo booth area where kids can take silly pictures and capture the memories.

Play Musical Chairs: Rain or shine, this game is a party classic that never gets old. Line up chairs back-to-back and have kids walk around them while music is playing. When the music stops, the kids need to quickly sit down. Remove a chair each round until only one player is left.


Face Painting: Hire a professional face painter or do it yourself with a face painting kit. Kids love to transform into their favorite superhero or animal.

Spa Day: Grab the nail polish and face masks, it's time to relax with a spa day. If you're hosting a bunch of little girls, a pamper day is just what you need. Feeling adventurous? Let the little ladies do your nails and makeup.


DIY Cupcake (or cookie) Decorating: Set up a table with plain cupcakes and various decorations such as frosting, sprinkles, and candy. Let kids unleash their creativity and decorate their own cupcakes. If it's going to be around dinner time, you could also set up a "make your own pizza" station.

Treasure Hunt: Hide small treasures or candy around the party area and give kids clues to find them. You can even create a treasure map to make it more exciting.

Bounce House: If you have space in your backyard or basement, rent a bounce house for kids to jump around in. This is sure to keep them entertained for hours.


Dino or Construction Dig: All you'll need for this one is either shovels or paint brushes. For the Dino theme, burry dinosaur bones in a box of sand. Hand the paint brushes to the kids and let them have their own excavation. If you have a construction theme, all you'll need is sand and toy diggers. You could hide little toy or wrapped treats in the sand too.


DIY Slime Station: Kids love slime! Set up a slime station with different colors and textures of slime for them to play with. This can get messy, so make sure to have a designated area for it.

Planning a successful kid's birthday party doesn't have to be stressful. By incorporating some of these activities into your party, you can ensure that your little guests have a great time and create unforgettable memories. Remember to always prioritize safety and make sure to have adult supervision during the party.
