When you are hosting a kid’s birthday party, you will have a lot to organise. Let’s face it; no one wants their home ruined by a bunch of young kids. But, when you cannot afford to hire a venue or pay for a play place for all the guests you will be left with no other choice. That is, unless you choose to have activities outdoor for the kids. Granted, the weather is not always great, but activities outdoor for kids is a really great idea for summer birthdays.
You may be reading this and thinking that you don’t have a garden. If that is the case and a family member is not willing to volunteer to lend you theirs, then many of these activities can be done in a local park too. Remember that when taking a group outdoors you will need the collaboration of the parents, and that means asking them to stay for the party too. Having help from other parents when hosting a party can make the whole thing less daunting and more fun anyway, and when you host outdoors there is always less mess to clear up.
A treasure hunt is a perfect example of activities outdoor for kids that costs virtually nothing, but keeps kids amused for hours. Depending on the age of the children, they may group up in pairs or with their parent to try and seek out the treasure. Your back garden is a perfect venue for a treasure hunt.
Kite flying is another great activity for kids, and this one is perfect for the local park. Here you will need the collaboration of the parents to bring a kite along, or you will need some cash to invest in some kites. Drone flying is also popular, but this is more aimed towards teenagers and young adults.
For a winter outdoor activity for kids, you can try a sledging party. Of course, this depends on whether it snows or not, so it cannot be organised in advance. But, if you are impulsive and love to throw a party, getting kids out on their sledges can be immense fun for everyone involved.
Hiring a bouncy castle is a great hit with kids, and although you will need to hire a castle, one fee will keep all the kids amused for hours on ends. Due to the weather conditions in the UK, most castles will come with a waterproof roof that means that your kids and their guests can bounce around for hours even when it is wet.
When organising activities outdoor for kids, always make sure that your kids are kitted out properly with the best outdoor gear. In winter it is important to wrap up warm, and that means a waterproof coat and good footwear if you will be going to park or going on a treasure hunt. So, for your next child’s party, stop worrying about expensive venues, and plan some really cool outdoor fun that all the kids and their parents can enjoy and that will leave your home mess free!
