4 Year Old Birthday Party Ideas at Home
It can be so much fun to throw a birthday party for your 4-year-old! Below you'll find some fun 4-year old birthday party ideas at home that are perfect for this age!
But before we jump into 4-year-old birthday party ideas- let me first share a few tips!
A few 4-year-old birthday party tips!
🎈 At this age, kids are likely to have some friends from pre-school or even sports teams that they might want to invite. But be cautious about the total # of kids- it can be overwhelming for both the birthday child and for you if you have more than 6-8 kids!
⏰ A 4-year-old birthday party should be kept to about 60-90 minutes long- including time for food or cake!
🎂 Speaking of food- at this age, it is smart to keep things simple and just stick with a birthday cake. If you plan the party for the middle of the afternoon- no one will expect you to serve lunch!
🛍 When it comes to party favors, my favorite tip is to make a party activity- such as the craft- also serve as the party favor!
🎁 It's best to leave present-opening until after the guests have gone home. A 4-year old isn't likely to edit their reactions to what's inside of the box! Plus it provides an opportunity later for your child to draw a "thank you picture" that you can send to the gift giver later to show your appreciation!
