As parents, it’s tough looking for new party ideas for kids in London every year. For a lot of kids, one birthday party has to be different from and more exciting than the last party.
So here are some ideas to help you put together a kids party in London. Whether it’s your children’s birthday party or graduation party, whether you’re hosting it at home or party venues, with these party ideas, the kids get to have a really good time.
A party with a theme is just like a dream. Themed parties are always a great idea especially if your kid is into it. Just be sure to choose a theme for a birthday party that will be easy to pull off on a budget. Here are beloved themes you could choose but of course, there are countless ways it could go.
For your kids birthday party, get them and their guests to dress up like their favorite superheroes. It’s fun because they’ll get so caught up trading stories of batman and spiderman that they won’t want the party to end. This is a great idea for shared birthday parties.
Also, it’s one of the popular party ideas for kids 5 to 12 years of age. Kids under five just can’t appreciate it that much and a teenage child may be slightly bored with the concept. See if you can hire a party venue with wide, open space for the kids party where they’ll be free to run around with their capes floating in the wind.
Another fun way to celebrate a children’s party is to have an evening of movie entertainment. It might just be you the parents, snuggling up on the sofa watching your child’s favorite comedy or you could set up in the backyard with loads of popcorn and fizzy drinks. You could also invite some of your kids’ pals, pick a kid-friendly movie that they’re sure to enjoy.
This idea works for children of any age. For very young children’s birthday parties, movies with a lot of sing-alongs might be best.
If your kid is super curious about filmmaking, you could give them a fantastic kids party called a movie set-themed kids party where the children get to interact with experts on filmmaking with real movie equipment.
Not only is this one of the most innovative party ideas, but it’s also one where they might pick up a skill or two. The Young Film Academy based in London has some great ideas about putting this type of entertainment together.
For children who love sporting activities like football, this is a good option. They could gear up in their little jerseys and try scoring a few goals in a friendly match. If this is a birthday party, goody bags could be used as participation prizes. You’ll want to use a different venue if your backyard is too small for the stomping of these little sports stars. Keep looking up kids party venues online to see if there are venues close to you that will work.
It could be anything including pizzas, cake, paper art, watercolor paintings. You name it. The trick is to search for something that’ll engage every child involved. They don’t have to make it from scratch if that will take too long. For example, if they’ll be making food, the ingredients should already be peeled and chopped up. All they have to do is mix and layer it up as per instructions. Make sure you have grown-ups to supervise activities and prevent accidents.
Kids love video games so much. Sometimes, much more than parents would like them too. So why not use this to ease the stress of throwing a grand party and just make it a video game birthday party only that this time there’ll be ice cream, cake, and presents.
For this kind of birthday party, try not to have more than six guests or make the party too long. Also, it would not be the best of ideas for kids likely to throw tantrums when they lose.
If it is not possible to gather in one spot, you can make it an online session. Minecraft and Fortnite are popular options for an online game party.
The whole thing with kids parties is to feel pampered and loved. What’s more relaxing than a stress-free day at the spa and bonding while getting mani-pedis and massages?
You could treat your kid and yourself to this and ditch the hassles of having a regular kids party. If you can, invite two of your kid’s closest pals and if you’re in London, there are great venues for this kind of fun such as Brown Hotel, Lush Spa, and the likes. Many of them do have age limits for kids and adults may need to be present at all times.
Surprise your kid with tickets to watch their favorite football team play live at the stadium. You don’t need to worry about entertainment or a party theme as all the excitement is right in front of you. This idea will work best if it is not something you already do often. It might not even matter if the team loses because your child will cherish the memory and it may become a family tradition on birthdays.
How about a weekend out in the free and open wild? You could do this for your child’s birthday. There are great camping sites an hour or two outside the city if you live in London. Search for the ones closest to you, grab some food and supplies, and get tuned in to mother nature.
If you’re not looking forward to having kids stomping around your house during a party, getting food everywhere, you could opt-out of that and hire a venue that provides services for children’s party including kids birthday party. They’ll take care of everything including decoration, entertainment and music, theme, and even the after party cleaning. All set, your kids and their friends only need to show up and have fun. Several of these great venues are available in London and a venue may charge per child, per family, or per hour so look them up to see what works for you.
You don’t have to throw a wild party every year to mark birthdays. A simple family dinner either at home or in a top-notch restaurant is another way to shake things up a bit. Sure, there’ll be presents back home but just take the time to appreciate the gift of having one another.
The best birthday party our 10 year old son has ever had! Brilliantly organised, beautifully run, incredibly exciting, wonderfully instructive and immaculately put together. The MovieStar Party team really know how to make films and inspire children. An amazing day!
Special thanks to Craig, Dan and Tina for co-ordinating a terrific party, where the kids were able to let rip their imagination and catch it on camera. The kids were fascinated learning about lines of action, the 180 degree rule, reverse shots and all sorts. The whole day was loads of fun and you have inspired the next generation of film-makers!
We had a great screening and look forward to sharing the videos with the other parents now.
I can without hesitation say that our MovieStar Party was the best birthday party my daughter has ever had!
