Do you have a little one with an upcoming birthday?
An outdoor birthday party is a great way to let the kids run around without messing up your house.
Plus, you can choose from a huge range of fun-filled imaginative themes that party guests will adore.
If your child’s birthday is during summer, a splashy sprinkler party in the backyard is the perfect way to beat the heat. If you don’t have a swimming pool, you can still create a water world for the kids using a paddle pool, some aquatic activities, and sea themed decorations such as shells. For food, think fish sticks, starfish shaped sandwiches, a fish bowl full of jelly, and a pirate cake. Make sure you stock up on water resistant sunblock and insect repellent so nobody gets sunburnt or bitten by bugs.
Butterfly garden party
Turn your garden into a whimsical butterfly dreamland with this theme that’s irresistible for young girls. Set up a tent to house your dessert table, and decorate it with butterfly garlands, lanterns, and flowers. For activities, kids can colour in and make their own butterfly party hat, weave daisy chains, and swat at a butterfly piñata filled with goodies. Instead of lolly bags, give each child a flower pot filled with sweets and butterfly treasures.
Obstacle course party
Let the kids run around to their hearts’ content with an obstacle course themed birthday party. Head into the backyard or your local park to set up the course, and give each child a numbered t-shirt and a map of the course when they arrive. The obstacles can include anything from a balance beam, a crabwalk, a rope swing over an inflatable wading pool, or a ladder run where kids climb over the rungs of a wooden ladder laid flat on the ground. After each child has run the course, award them with a cookie medal for their effort.
Camping themed party
If your child enjoys the great outdoors, they’ll love a camping themed birthday party. Decorate your backyard with hay bales, a fake log fire, and a “Welcome to Camp” banner. Set up a trail mix bar where kids can make their own trail mix using nuts, pretzels, dried fruit, and M&Ms. Take the kids “fishing” in a paddle pool, or let older kids roast marshmallows over a candle (supervised, of course!)
Mad scientist birthday party
Stock up on test tubes, petri dishes and beakers and throw a mad scientist party that every budding scientist will love. Give each child their own plastic glasses and lab coat on arrival, and show them to their “workstation” where they can experiment to their heart’s content with coloured water in beakers, edible crystals, and bubble blowers. Serve hungry kids green cupcakes, gummy worms, chocolate frogs, petri dishes filled with jelly, and test tubes containing blue smarties. Party favours can be pop rocks, glow-in-the-dark trinkets, and popcorn.
