How to throw a birthday party at home

 

It wasn’t that long ago that most families had a party at home with just close family & friends. In current times with self-isolating, protecting our families at home, we have pulled together ideas from our team – we have worked out between us we have had hundreds of parties at home in our own childhoods and when our own children were young.  The days before a play centre or trampoline park was in every town! 

Everyone wants to make a birthday special for our children but perhaps its time to bring that back to the carpet at home.

Lego Party – A Great Creative Party At Home

Most of us have a box or 2 of this stuff, and its a pretty easy party to pull together, especially if you are perhaps just inviting siblings, it can suit all ages.

Download some free printables and start the party with some colouring – these could be sent to loved ones who perhaps are having to stay home and not join in with the party.

Why not choose a theme for your lego – trucks, star wars, harry potter – most children enjoy putting something together – and then taking it apart again – why not add a special tablecover to make it feel a little different from other days and a couple of decorations perhaps?

Cupcakes are popular with all ages, but helping to make them can be so much fun, white cupcakes with primary coloured icing and these cupcake picks are super easy.  

We come up with some easy and cheap Lego party games ideas, what about filling a jar with lego and guess how many are in there – count the bricks whilst organising them into colours for playing with another day.  Build the tallest towers – always a crowd-pleaser.  

Arts & Crafts Party – Painting, Crafting & Hobby Party Ideas

Many children enjoy creating using various arts & crafts – we have a wonderful craft inspired range decorated with a rainbow of colour paints & paint brushes

Create invitations, decorations and party bag fillers using air dried clay, coloured sand and more.

Theme the arts & crafts party around favourite hobbies – perhaps sports, space or science.
