Is your child’s birthday approaching quickly? Stressing about breaking the bank or spending weeks planning? We’ve got you covered with these tips for a cost and time effective party!
1. Embrace no-cost activities
Hired entertainment like characters, party hosts or clowns can get pretty expensive. But there are loads of classic games kids will always enjoy, that have little to no cost! Enjoy one or more of the following activities for an awesome party experience:
- Musical chairs
- Hot Potato
- Duck Duck Goose
- Karaoke (just search for karaoke songs on youtube and play on your computer or speaker!)
- Hide and Seek
- Storytime (perfect for preschoolers!)
2. Go digital
Forget paper invites, next time send your guests a free electronic invitation. Cost-effective, eco-friendly and easy always wins! You’ll save what you’d normally spend on paper, pens, stickers or printing.
3. Bake your own cake
Box cake mixes offer a wide variety and are inexpensive, easy to make, and quite frankly delicious! Kids will love it, and won’t notice the difference between a bakery cake and a homemade one. Bakery cakes can cost up to $100 dollars, while boxed cake will be no more than $10. Plus, you can make it a bonding activity with your kids and let them help you decorate.
