We know that coming up with kids birthday party ideas gets tiring year after year.  You want something easy to create but that your kids will love.

Here’s 5 kids birthday party themes that combine minimum cost with maximum fun.

  • LEGO

LEGO has always been a favourite with the younger generations so take the guesswork out of party ideas with a theme you know they’ll love.

If you can’t bear the thought of finding enough LEGO blocks for a whole party of kids then outsource the tough stuff with a Bricks 4 Kidz LEGO party.

Everything from invites to games and thank-you notes are taken care of so all that’s left for you is to bake a LEGO brick cake and fill lolly bags.

  • Sports

Australia is often referred to as a sporting nation which should come as no surprise with our passion for AFL, cricket, rugby, soccer and everything in between.

Embrace the Aussie lifestyle with a sport themed bash for your kids. Deck out a buffet table with classic sport themed foods from hot dogs and burgers to popcorn and the classic Australian addition of party pies and sausage rolls.

  • Pirates

Pirates are a common theme for kids parties, probably because it’s so easy to set up.

There’s plenty of swashbuckling decorations and costumes available year round. And preparing a DIY party game can be done at the last minute. What do pirates love most in the world? Treasure.

Organise a scavenger hunt for the kids and use a box full of chocolate coins as the grand prize. They’ll love deciphering riddles and working together for their gold.

  • Board Games

Impress the older kids with a birthday party theme that gets them thinking and having fun.

Host a garden party full of giant game activities from outdoor chess to connect four and all-time classic tic-tac-toe. Playing together is great for their social skills and promoting healthy competition.

Keep track of who’s winning on a whiteboard (but make sure everyone gets a prize in the end).

  • Wild Animals

All kids love animals and dressing up so you can’t go wrong here.

Use it as a fun learning experience and theme it to a certain type of animal such as native Australian, marine life or safari.

For an easy party activity set up an animal mask painting station where each child is given a paper plate and craft materials to fashion their own animal mask. Or hire a face painter for the day and help the kids find their wild side.

Whether you have just one child’s party to plan or five, you should now have everything you need for a stress free experience.
