    Two words: scavenger hunt.

    One of my daughter’s friends did this at a birthday party at a park near a creek and it was a huge hit. It requires almost no effort to set up and keeps the kids happily occupied and if thought out well, the kids can even learn a thing or two about the natural environment.

    My daughter’s Birthday aprty is tomorrw. A Ballerina party! i made tuts for all the girls for $15 and no sewing. You just cut up strips of tulle and not them around aribbon. Cut on swan lake, and let them entertain themselves.

    I think a great birthday party is having a sleepover party and watching their favorite movies. Thanks for the chance.

    Mt daughter just turned 6 in August and would LOVE this dvd.

    We had a water party. Slip n slide, pool, water guns, water balloons etc…. We told everyone to bring their swimsuits and a towel. Everyone had a wonderful time.

  5. Renee Turner Says:

    Instead of goody bags, let the kids make tie-dye t-shirts. You can put the dye in squeeze bottles or spray bottles to cut down on the mess. They get to take home a one of a kind gift that will actually get used.

    My daughter wanted a butterfly garden party. Everyone came as their favorite bug, they decorated flower pots (from the $ store) with stickers and I made a butterfly cake shown on the betty crocker site

  7. Janet F Says:

    I like to decorate the table that I will be serving on with a lot of balloons and streamers. I also like to pop open confetti when they blow out the candles.

    My best birthday tip? Keep it simple!

  13. Katie Says:

    Get lots of help, plan ahead and limit the number of kids you invite.

    Hi Jackie! What a wonderful new Dora movie. My niece and nephew would really enjoy it. For one of our son’s birthday parties, my mother-in-law made a fun game. The party guests were divided into two groups. Each team had its’ own set of clues to follow. Some were in our home, others outside in places like the fort, etc. At the end, each team had prizes waiting for them! Our party had a pirate theme. She has the clues on old looking scroll paper. Thanks, Cindi

    The best tip I would give is to make sure to put on the invitation whether siblings are invited also.That way if you go some where you have to pre pay per child you’ll know when they RSVP.

    Oh yeah, also. Have an outside party if possible. LOL That way if they spill or break anything it won’t be that fish tank or fancy cat figurine. lol

    My child will flip if I win this for her. Dora has special magical powers only child can understand! :)

  16. Jo Says:

    My fave tip is to do parties out of the house to eliminate pre- and post-party cleanup.

  17. Rebecca C Says:

    I like to do a group craft of some sort 😀

    Instead of doing goody bags I always get a bunch of dollar store toys and hand those out. For my daughter’s last birthday they were all in a box at the end of a photo scavenger hunt.

  19. Vicki wurgler Says:

    my grandson had his party outdoors with water guns, water balloons and other games. it was very simple but the boys had fun

  20. Kellie Says:

    My tip would be take a ton of pictures! I didn’t get any pictures of my daughter with her guests on her first birthday. I have no idea what I was thinking!

  21. Junglewife Says:

    Cupcakes for the kids instead of a big birthday cake!!! One kid invited per year of the kid’s birthday (three kids for 3rd birthday, etc…)
    My daughter would LOVE this for HER 3rd birthday coming up in 2 months!

  22. Chris Says:

    We had a party where the girls all decorated their own flip flops. I bought a bunch of crafting odds and ends and lots of glue. They had a ball with it.

    We’ve had a couple of great parties. One was just arming kids with waterguns at a local park and letting them go at it — we had ages 4-13, boys and girls, and everyone had a blast. The mixed ages makes it even more fun (we have three kids so it goes with the territory). Then we bbq’ed hot dogs and decorated cupcakes. Summer birthdays are great.

    Second was having the kids paint wooden birdhouses from Michaels. The birdhouses are about $7 each — which is a bargain, since they are both the entertainment and the party favors! This was for my son’s 6th birthday, and both girls and boys loved it.

    we had a dora themed party, where everyone got dora hats and did a dance along. it was so cute.
    my daughter wants this!
