Good birthday party ideas for children include activities that most children enjoy. Craft making, outdoor field day activities or scavenger hunts are all good themes for a successful party.
Backyard camping or indoor sleepovers are also good birthday party ideas. Movies, popcorn, candy, cake, games and a late bedtime at these parties give children a fun-filled night.
Plan the birthday party at a local museum or water park for a fun-filled day that requires little work. These birthday parties are typically a hit with both parents and children.
If you have access to a large kitchen, plan a cookie decorating party where the kids decorate sugar cookies and have a treat to take home at the end.
