Every kid wants to invite all of his or her friends and sometimes, you also need to invite the parents of kid’s friends. It makes the birthday party expensive as there are a lot of things to entertain the guests.

In this article, we will try to provide some good birthday party plans to save money. The best way to save is to organize the birthday party yourself; instead hiring an event organizer and then go for the DIY crafts and creative ideas along with a few more options. Let’s discuss these here:

Organize Birthday Party At Home

How To Plan A Kids Birthday Party- Most of the parents usually rent a space to organize a birthday party and for that they have to pay huge rent. Along with that, they also want to get rid of all the planning so the birthday organizers also provide the services to arrange food and entertainment stuff and they again charge high amount for that.


The easiest way to save money is to arrange the birthday party at home. If you don’t have enough space in the room, you can arrange the party at the backyard and can save from $100 to $300 easily. With that you can hire a cleaning service to clean the mess at the end of the party and it will charge you around $50.

DIY Crafts

If you are expert in DIY crafts, you can save money on almost everything by making different crafts to arrange the kid’s birthday party. For this, you need to start the planning at least 1 week before the birthday party.

You can take the start by making the DIY homemade birthday cards for kids. This will be the basic step that can save only a few bucks. But after that you can make the DIY birthday caps, DIY planters, and many other birthday crafts that will allow you to save a lot of money.

People also spend some money on the party decoration that includes the themed balloons, streamers, banners and signs. You can save some money here again by keeping the arrangements simple by opting the latex balloons instead of the themed balloons and other themed decorations.

Entertainment and Games

Some parents like to hire actors who use the costumes of the favorite cartoon characters of the kids. This is a good way to entertain the kids, but it requires high budget again and you need to save the money.

So, the best way to save money on this without compromising on the entertainment is to arrange some games for the guests. Games like tug-of-war and ring toss are good. You can also request the guests to bring the swimsuits to arrange the water gun fight.
