Looking for Ideas for Kids Birthday Parties?

Having a birthday party?  Then welcome to Great Kids Birthday Parties. There are so many options these days that it's hard deciding which way to go.  Do I have the party in my backyard or at the ice skating rink?  Do I hire a magician or have a scavenger hunt?  What games would be fun? There are definitely many decisions to make but the fun part is YOU get to design your own party and we'll show you how!

On this site you will find everything you are looking for to have a fantastic, fun and memorable party for your child. With each party theme you will find activities, games, crafts, party favors, cakes, entertainment and much more to go with your party theme.

There is nothing much more exciting for your child than their birthday (well maybe Disneyworld). Excitement starts to build as they look forward to that special day. They can't wait to have fun with their friends, blow out the candles and open presents. Aah! but this takes planning, and it can be a little or a lot, it's all up to you.

Here at Great Kids Birthday Parties you will find just about everything you need to celebrate. With every theme you will find many ideas that you can combine with your theme to have a great party!

kristes 1st birthday

I have been having birthday parties for my girls since their first birthday (they are now 13 and 15 years old) and enjoyed planning each and every one of them. The picture on this page is from my oldest daughter's 1st birthday (I made that 3D Little Mermaid cutout...more about that later). So as you can see, my passion for birthdays started early.

I always started with a theme, usually a character (until they got older) and worked around it, incorporating ideas as I went along. For my oldest daughter's first birthday we had a Little Mermaid theme complete with a Little Mermaid impersonator, face painting, Little Mermaid cake (I made the cake topper), a grotto, Little mermaid lollipops (I made with a lollipop mold and put in a topiary tree) and homemade favors. We had her first birthday party at the Miami Seaquarium and so that was also part of our entertainment.

Yes, perhaps I overdid it a little (okay, a lot), but I had the greatest time planning her birthday and in the process created a beautiful keepsake for my daughters.

We have been celebrating our children's birthdays for the past 17 years and because we have had so much fun, my daughters and I decided to share with you what we love planning and doing....great kids birthday parties.
