Whether you decide to have your party at home at at a kids-friendly venue these 5 party ideas will make your event one to remember! Below is the Top 5 best ideas for entertaining children at a birthday party. Be sure to let us know what you think.

1. Face Painting

Hiring a face painter is always fun because children just love being able to choose which character they would like to become for the day.

Having a professional face painter also helps you have a stress-free day as the kids are occupied deciding and becoming a cute Lion, Fairy, Unicorn, Spider-Man, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle or any face paint they can think up with their big imaginations. It's also a great photo opportunity once all their little faces are painted and smiley so definitely get out your camera.

2. Bubbles

A great budget friendly birthday party idea is old fashioned bubbles! Bubbles are especially loved my the littlest of kids. Bubbles are always one of the most loved 1st & 2nd birthday party entertainment ideas and what's great about them is they are super cheap. We recommend purchasing the Kmart Mega Bubble Wands which are only 50 Cents each. Bargain! Buy a few of these and your child’s birthday will be full of kids laughing and jumping to make sure they pop every one. We do advise though that you only let an adult blow the bubbles as its easy for children to drop the liquid and slip (and also this can be super messy).

3. Balloon Twisting

What kids doesn't love balloons! There is something so magic about the way balloon twisters are able to quickly whip up a dog, cat, flower, sword or elaborate object in seconds.

Children are always in awe just to watch a balloon maker swiftly create their favourite design. Let us know if you would like one of our professional balloon twisters from the Periwinkle team to bring the balloons and fun to your next event.

4. Jumping Castle

Whenever there is a jumping castle about children disappear! That's because it's so hard to get them off as they have the best time ever. They could bounce around on there for hours. Hiring a jumping castle is a simple way to entertain kids at a birthday party and your guests will never want to leave. The best place to hire a jumping castle is Bounce-O-Rama as they seem to be the most popular and from our experience the most squeaky clean and reliable.

5. Entertainment

Hiring engaging and professional children's party entertainers make all the difference in ensuring the kids are entertained the whole time. It's so important as a parent to be able to enjoy your child's day without the extra stress of trying to entertain the kids yourself. These birthday milestones are so important to celebrate and make special memories because they only happen once. Having a party host is also a great birthday gift to your child as their favourite character/hero comes to life and actually turns up to their birthday party! Can you imagine how awesome that must be.
