Of course we keep birthday parties low cost around here; here's some suggestions from a reader as to how to do that.

For kids, birthdays are a big deal and they will want to celebrate with their friends. While you will want your child to have an unforgettable birthday, this can be stressful as you will need to come up with something fun and look after dozens of very excitable youngsters. In addition to this, it can be challenging to organize a good birthday party if you are trying to squeeze the pennies. However, you do not need to spend a fortune to show a group of kids a fun time, so here are a few ideas for cheap birthday party ideas that will ensure your little one has an unforgettable birthday with their pals.

The Park

Nature’s playground, the park is the perfect place to take a group of children. However, make sure you bring along games for them to play, sports equipment and plenty of food and drink - you can then simply sit back and let them get on with it. This is a great option if the weather is good because the kids can entertain themselves while you sit back and watch (or get involved if you wish!).

House Party

If space permits, throw a party at your home instead of paying to hire a venue. This can save a huge sum, and it also means that everyone can feel comfortable and at home. Hopefully, the weather will be good so that you can spread out into the garden, in which case you will want a few fun lawn games and activities to keep them entertained. The other benefit of this method is that you can save money by preparing your own food from the comfort of your own home.

Escape Room

Escape rooms are hugely popular right now and can be good fun for a group of youngsters as they must work together to solve the mystery and escape the room. They are not free but do not have to cost too much money, plus you get the benefit of them keeping themselves occupied for a few hours. You can find these experiences near you by searching online, with many in different locations such as Escape Room Pittsburgh.

Walk/Bike Ride

Kids like nothing more than being active and encouraging them to burn up their energy will be appreciated by the moms and dads! With this in mind, a terrific way to throw a fun party for your child without breaking the bank is to organize a walk or bike ride. If it is a large group, you may want a few other adults there to supervise and particularly if you are cycling which can be hazardous. Along the way, there are all kinds of games and activities that you could play to keep them entertained. You could also purchase a dirt bike for your kid if your budget allows. Kids Ride Wild has listed a range of dirt bikes that you can choose from.

Throwing a birthday bash for your kid does not always have to involve splashing the cash, and the above are just a few affordable ideas for a children’s birthday party. You will want them to have a fantastic time with their friends, so provided that you make a fuss and they can spend quality time with friends outside of school they are sure to have a great time.
