Where are the best places for kids parties?
Often, hosting a child’s party at your home isn’t an option. Perhaps your place is too small, parking is tricky, or you simply don’t want the hassle of it. There are plenty of great kids party places out there, ranging from “done for you” events to more laid back affairs.
We have put together some of the most fun kids party places so that you can see all your options.
Budget Ideas for Kids Party Places
First off let’s look at some budget friendly options. Afterall, hosting a party is expensive enough and sometimes you just don’t want the added expense of venue hire. But don’t stress as there are heaps of cheap and free options for kids birthday venues. Here is a list of our favorites:
- A local park. If you are lucky enough to have a great park nearby, why not set up a picnic tea with a few balloons and the kids can enjoy the space for a few fun games. A party in the park is a great option!
- Your local playground. This works well as a party venue for younger kids. Parents can watch the children play in the playground and bring your own table for some party food and drinks.
- Woodland. If you live near woodland, this can be a great kids’ party venue for an outdoorsy-themed party. Find a little clearing to set up some blankets and picnic rugs and have the children do some fun camping-style activities. Set up teams and have a fort making competition. Or host a Birthday Hiking Party for heaps of outdoor fun.
- The beach. If you live in a coastal area, the beach can be a great spot for a kid’s party place. Of course, you will need the weather on your side but during the summer months, this can be a winner! Check out these fun sand play ideas for party activities on the beach.
- Your own backyard. If you have space and are keen to keep the mess out of your house, your own backyard is the perfect birthday venue. And if you have a trampoline, then you could incorporate some fun trampoline games.
- A community center. Often community center halls are big, have good kitchen and toilet facilities, and are reasonably priced.
- Local sports field or courts. Throw a soccer or basketball themed party at your local sports field.
- Your local library. Libraries often have function rooms that they hire out for a reasonable fee.
