When it comes to planning your kid's birthday party, some parents would argue that less is more. While other parents prefer to go all out for their child's birthday with bouncy castles, petting zoos, and over-the-top decorations, for the rest of us, sometimes we just need a little less. If that sounds like you, here's a handy tip: there are so many kid birthday party ideas that you don't have to do.
Personally, I've hosted several kid's birthday parties and at this stage, I am at the point where goody bags are even too much. So if skipping the craft table and party favors is what you're thinking, you are not alone. Let's simplify our kid's birthday parties for our own sanity, but also because some things are completely unnecessary. Taking out some of the "extras" when it comes to party planning can save you on time and money, while still giving your child a special day for them to have fun and celebrate with their family and friends. If it's more your style to go big with all kinds of party rentals, then go for it. But if you're looking to make the party planning as simple as possible, check out these party ideas that are totally OK to skip.
