Your Own Backyard
As the weather gets warmer, it’s time to get outside! Have an outdoor birthday party in your backyard. From backyard picnics to bounce houses, there are plenty of outdoor activities you can enjoy in your backyard for a spring party.
- Butterfly or Ladybug Party – Incorporate butterfly or ladybug decorations and snacks, and have a craft table where young nature lovers can create their own butterfly or ladybug wings.
- Bubble Party – Set up a bubble machine and provide bubble wands for kids to play with. You can also have bubble-themed snacks and crafts.
- Bouncy castle or inflatable obstacle course – If you have enough room, you can never go wrong with inflatables. The kids will stay entertained with little effort.
- Hire a balloon artist to come and make balloon animals or a face painter to do face painting with the younger kids.
- Outdoor Movie Night – Set up a backyard movie night with a projector and screen. Have the kids bring sleeping bags and blankets and provide popcorn and snacks. You can even have a campfire and roast marshmallows for s’mores. Once the movie is over, you can head indoors for a sleepover party.
Don’t have a lot of space at home? Take your party to a nearby park or playground. Be sure to check with your park to see if reservations are needed or if there are any special fees. Parks also tend to fill up fast on weekends, so plan ahead and scout out your spot early. Besides the built-in fun of the playground, there are lots of fun activities you can do at the park:
- Play Games – Outdoor party games like sack races are always fun, and parks offer plenty of space to move around.
- Fly a Kite – Nothing like a breezy spring day to fly kites. You can theme the party around it, have kids design and make their own kites, and then try to fly them.
- Outdoor Scavenger Hunt – Organize a scavenger hunt complete with clues and prizes.
Day At the Farm
Does your tot love animals? There’s nothing quite as magical as a springtime birthday on the farm. You can explore the barnyard at many local farms and even experience a petting zoo. At the end of the party, send them home with a stuffed animal and some incredible memories!
Miniature golf is an excellent idea for older kids’ birthdays if you want something unique. It’s an easy way to entertain your guests outdoors without much work; that’s a hole-in-one! Take advantage of the spring months when the weather is not too cold or too hot and host a party at a miniature golf course.
Theme Park Party
Before the summer heat sets in, head to an amusement park! Amusement parks can get pricey, but keeping your party small and intimate can be the perfect way to celebrate a special birthday. Your options will depend on where you live, but Los Angeles has a variety of amusement parks, such as Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, and Six Flags Magic Mountain. Spend the day riding roller coasters, eating ice cream, and having a blast.
