Children's Birthday Party on a Shoestring Budget
Sometimes your pockets are empty when important days, like birthdays roll around. Don't worry. With a little imagination, a fun and exciting party doesn't have to cost much. And what the kids will remember is the fun, not the price.
1. Shop at the right type of store.
Start by shopping at the parents' best friend, a dollar store. There is very little you will need for a party that can't be found there, probably cheaper than anywhere else. Most of the following tips depend on such a store.
Invitations are inexpensive… about eight for a dollar. Or, let the birthday kid have fun by making their own. Buy a piece of colored poster board, fifty cents at the dollar store, and cut it into postcard size pieces. Let your child decorate one side and save the other side for the address. Postcard stamps are about 2/3 the price of regular stamps. Or, if the guests live nearby, take a walk with your child and let them hand deliver the cards.
Here's a bonus: If you know the email addresses of the guests, you can go to evite.com and send email invitations, or reminders, for free.
Of course streamers are always good… two rolls for a dollar. But how about adding a taste of summer fun, regardless of the season? Buy a few inflatable beach balls for a dollar each and hang them from the ceiling. They're colorful and will look great mixed especially with some streamers. Near the end of the party you can take the beach balls down and let the kids burn some energy by batting them around (assuming there is plenty of space or that they can go outside). Later, use the balls as a prize for a guessing game or other competition.
If you don't intend to serve a meal, schedule the party for an in-between time, and write on the invitations that you will be serving cake, ice cream, and punch, or whatever.
If you do choose to serve a meal, stick to simple fingerfoods that kids love, like hot dogs, pretzels, and carrot sticks. For small kids, save waste by cutting some of the hot dogs in half and tell them they can come back for more.
If you're serving soda, skip the cans. Otherwise, when the party is over you'll find a lot of half-empty cans sitting around. Instead, buy 2 liter bottles or serve pitchers of punch. As guests arrive, write each name on a paper cup so they can keep track of it.
You can usually buy a small bakery cake for a reasonable price, or save a lot more by making it yourself. Here's an idea: Make a cool caterpillar cake by baking a bundt cake, cutting it in half, and positioning the pieces to form an S. Decorate one end to be the face, using licorice or pixie sticks for feelers and the mouth, and other candies for eyes and nose and body spots.
5. Goody bags
You don't have to do goody bags, but if you do, the bags are cheap at the dollar store, about 12-30 in a package. Or, to add some fun and occupy the kids, use regular brown lunch sacks and let little kids decorate them with glitter paint and stickers.
Which holiday is nearest your child's birthday? Whatever it is, plan ahead.
Go shopping the day after the holiday and load up on brand name candy for half price to fill goody bags. Even if the candy has a holiday picture on the wrapper, the kids won't care.
If you also want to put a small toy or two in each bag, here's a sample of various multi-packs you can get for a dollar each:
6. Treasure chest
Here's an idea that will intrigue most kids, and some adults. Before the party, create a treasure chest, using a large shoebox, or even a larger box if it has a lift off or one-flap lift-up lid. Spray paint the treasure chest gold, or cover it with shiny foil wrap, or colorful paper. Then decorate it with glitter paint or stickers. If it's not a surprise for the birthday kid, they will love helping.
Now for the treasure. You may want to save the goody bags to put in the treasure chest. Or fill the chest with packing peanuts or even paper shred and hide enough treasures inside for each child to get one, and then blindfold them and let them dig. All of the items in the goody bag list above would make great treasures.
7. Games and Activities
The kids will have plenty of fun without bringing in entertainment. But if you feel you must do something extra, here's a budget-wise idea. Hire a teenager who can help with the kids, and serve as an entertainer. You may know a teen who can make balloon animals (or ask at a local church or a high school drama teacher.) Balloon animals are a huge hit, even for older kids, and watching someone make them can entertain kids for a long time. You can buy a hand pump for about $4 (and still have it for the next party!) and balloons are about 25 for $2.50.
How about face painting? If it's near Halloween, stash away some face paints while they are cheapest (probably half price right after Halloween).
Not only will the children be entertained, but you'll have an extra pair of eyes to watch them, and a clean-up helper afterwards. How much you'll have to pay depends on where you live, of course, but $25 for a two-hour party sounds very generous.
Some mostly no-cost gift/celebration ideas for the truly broke:
Whatever you do, keep in mind, your kids will be thrilled to the queen or king for a day. It's not about the money… it's about the recognition and the fun.ï¿½
Instructions for Making a Pinata:

6. Let dry fully.
7. When it's fully dry, pop the balloon and pull it out.
8. Paint the piñata.
9. If you like, add crepe paper strips for extra decoration, or sprinkle with glitter.
