Three Active Kids Party Ideas To Get Your Children Moving Again

A child's birthday can be a particularly special occasion for all the family. It seems like said birthdays come around all too fast - after all, it feels as though only yesterday that you brought your little one home from the hospital swaddled in a blanket. But before we get all emotional reminiscing about years gone by, it's time to look to the next big milestone. Birthdays are a pretty big deal for children, as ironically when you're a child all you want to do is grow up. Your child and their friends will all be pretty excited about the big day, what with the prospect of presents and a party. You will also have a bunch of parents on your hands, looking forward to a day without their kids whilst you entertain them.

So what exactly are you going to organize, party-wise? Chances are you'll have a full day to play with, so you had better find something that will take up at least a couple of hours, not including going out for food. Anything that gets them up and moving is always a safe bet. Children these days spend so much time in front of TV and cell phone screens that it can be a breath of fresh air to get them out and about. Plus, they will be tired out by the time you return them to their parents! Take a look at these fun activity ideas for inspiration.  

Outdoor Obstacle Course
Kids love a bit of rough and tumble, especially if you are needing to host a party for your young son and his friends. Make the most of the great outdoors and challenge them to an obstacle course in a nearby wooded area. The best thing to do is to look for a company that specializes in such events. Doing it yourself may help to keep costs down, but you won't have any safety equipment and the last thing you want is a nasty accident on your hands. Local sports companies offer outdoor activities such as zip lining which is sure to prove a hit with the average thrill-seeking child.

Laser Tag

Of course, unfortunately sometimes the weather can let us down and we have to resort to staying inside four walls for the birthday party. If your child's birthday falls around a particularly rainy season, you might be better off simply booking an indoor event just to make sure the event can still go ahead. Laser tag birthday parties are a great idea as they still keep your child and their friends active and having fun, but you have the security of knowing they can go ahead whatever the weather.

Treasure Hunt
If you are on a bit of a budget, a treasure hunt is one easy party idea that you can easily do yourself. The good thing about this is that it can either be done indoors or outdoors - you can play it by ear when the day comes around. Simply buy some cheap goodies to use as prizes - consider what is age appropriate for your child and their friends. Then write some fun clues (remember to speak in riddles!) and set them loose!
