For Childrens Birthday Parties
Home games and entertainment for your childs birthday party are easy to do, let me show you how.
Choose party games that best suit the age of your child. Depending on the size of your house and garden, you will need to choose home party games that are appropriate. Small house, small number of guests; then look at some of the indoor games, board games and online games that are available.

Having a Party has Never Been So Easy!
For all the age categories below I have suggested all types of games that are suitable for a home party.
1st and 2nd Birthday Party. At this age the party is usually for the benefit of the parents.
Kids aged 3-5 years
3 years to 5 years Birthday Party. A little more involvement required, however party games and food can be quite simple.
Children aged 6-8 years
6 years to 8 years Birthday Party. Your child will no doubt have some ideas for the theme and party games. More structure and supervision will be required.
Children aged 9-12 years
9 years to 12 years. Your child's involvement in the party planning is critical. Structure is required, however, less supervision may be needed for the party games and activities.
Teenagers have very strong opinions on party themes and party games. Traditional party games may be considered un-cool, but there are other home games that will excite them.
What if you don't want to spend the time running the home games?
There are plenty of options available if you prefer to bring in an entertainer. If you decide on this option, make sure you do your research first.
Home Entertainment TipsIf possible get references.Check the small print of contracts.Check if there is a maximum number of children allowed.Confirm the cost per head.Check for any special requirements such as insurance.
As with choosing the
birthday party theme,
consult with your child on what type of entertainment they would like. You will need to be clear about the budget of course.
Even with the entertainment taken care of, you will still need to prepare party food, again with input from your child.

Not Sure If A Home Party
Is For You?
Your home games for childrens birthday parties, don't have to be held at home. This is a great age to hold childs party games at a local venue, such as a park or the beach.
If you're going to an outdoor venue, make sure there are toilets, a tap and if you plan a BBQ, make sure there is a hot plate BBQ available. Some parks require that you reserve a table, if not, you may need to send someone early to hold the table for you.
There are also many venues where the activity becomes the entertainment, such as Laser Games or Mini Golf. You can still organize a couple of party games for children at the venue.
I like to use pass the parcel as a way to keep the kids together and settle them down before food is served.
Some venues specially cater for children's birthday parties and they will provide the party food. Often all you will have to do is provide a cake and the loot bags, if you choose to have them.
Having a party away from home makes a nice change, especially if you have had parties at home in the earlier years. I really like the idea of coming home to a clean house and a well deserved glass of wine once the party is over!

Final Word. Having a party at home can be fun and remember, KISS- Keep It Simple Stupid. Don't try to do too much.4 party games maximum and have a plan. Don't try and do it all yourself, ask friends, family and parents to help. Keep within 2 hours, 3 at the most. Remember to smile and look like you're having fun, because the children will pick up on your attitude.
