6 Year Old Birthday Party Ideas at Home
Your elementary-schooler will love the idea of celebrating his or her birthday with friends this year! These 6-year-old birthday party ideas at home should inspire you to throw a party that is fun- yet easy and inexpensive!
But before we jump into 6-year-old birthday party ideas- let me first share a few tips!
A few 6-year-old birthday party tips!
🎈 Now that your child is in school- you might be tempted to invite his or her entire class to the birthday party! If you are feeling brave- you'll find some party themes below that will work for a large group! But another idea is to limit the invite list to just kids in the class of the same gender- a group about half the size!
⏰ A 6-year-old birthday party should be kept to about 90 minutes long- including time for food!
🎂 I'm sure you'll find that pizza is served at most birthday parties your child attends at this age- regardless as to whether the party occurs near a meal time or not! I say- keep things simple! Host a mid-afternoon party with just some light snacks (pretzels, crackers) and a themed birthday cake!
🛍 My favorite tip for kids party favors is to take a picture of all of the party guests, and print it and put it in a frame for the kids to take home! (Be sure to take the picture early on in the party, and have a helper print them and place them in the frames).
🎁 I usually find that it is best to leave present-opening until after the guests have gone home. Plus it provides an opportunity later for your child to write a thank you note that you can send to the gift giver later to show your appreciation!
