Hosting parties can be stressful, let alone planning the perfect party for your little ones. You don’t always have the time to spend hours browsing the web for that Pinterest perfect party. It’s hard keeping up with the latest T.V. characters and shows, so take a look at some of the fun, timeless birthday party ideas we’ve found for you to consider this summer.

Bonfire Party: Time to warm up by a fire and roast some marshmallows. This party idea is super easy and fun for all! You will need some lawn chairs, bug spray, a fire pit and maybe even some glow sticks. Buy some snacks to put in bowls and pass them around the fire. Don’t forget, a fire is not complete without s’mores! You can invite some of the parents to give a hand so that no one gets hurt, plus, they can join in on the fun too!

Backyard Movie Night: Pull out your sleeping bags, blankets and pillows and snuggle up while watching a your child’s favorite movie in your very own backyard! You can set up your T.V. out back or you can make your own projector screen! Next you will need to buy some snacks, like popcorn, candy, pop, etc. Set up a snack bar for the kids to fill up their bags/bowls. Now just set out the blankets and sleeping bags, grab some popcorn and enjoy the show!

Craft Party: This is for all your crafty kiddos! You can buy t-shirts for them to tie dye, wooden jewelry boxes to paint/decorate or have them paint a canvas. The options are endless! You can find most of these items at your local dollar store which makes this party very affordable. The craft(s) also act as a party favor for the guests to take home!

Outdoors Party: This is a great idea for your little wilderness explorers! The first thing you will need to consider is the location. Will you have this party in your backyard or will you go your nearest hiking trail? Don’t forget the sunscreen and bug spray! Next, you will need to decide what games and activities you will do at the party. A scavenger hunt is a great way to have all children participate and have fun! Another fun idea would be to buy bug catchers for the explorers to catch a few critters along the way.

Ice Cream Party: I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! This is great party idea for the summer time to cool down and enjoy a yummy treat. You can even set up an ice cream bar with all different toppings for the children to put on their ice cream, like Oreo crumbs, strawberries, marshmallows, gummy bears, caramel and chocolate sauce, etc. Decorate the house and/or backyard with some cute ice cream decor; the more colors, the better.
