Reaching the age of four is a big step for a small child. This is the year where he/she starts going to school and learns how to socialize with other kids. For a child this age, it is very important to give him/her a memorable and fun birthday party where he/she can play and have tons of fun with his/her new friends.
Throwing a four year old birthday party does not have to be expensive. A four year old child does not even know the value of money at this age so he/she will not know if his party is expensive or not. What is important to the child is that he has a really fun four year old birthday party. There are many ways to plan a fun but inexpensive four year old birthday party.
Ideas For A Four Year Old Birthday Party
1. Limit The Guests
When throwing a four year old birthday party, it is not necessary to invite too many adults. What is important is that there are a lot of invited kid guests so that the child will have a lot of kids to play with.
If possible limit the guest list to family and close friends with small children. After all, you are having a children’s party so what is important is that there are a lot of children attending the party.
Another great thing about having a small party is that it will be easier to supervise since there are not too many children. Having a large number of children all at once in the same place can be very chaotic and needs a lot of supervision.
2. Make Your Own Invitations
To save on the invitations for the four year old birthday party, you can just make your own. To make the invitations, you can just choose a great photo of your child and print it in your home computer with the details of the party written on the back of the photo.
Another inexpensive way to make your own invitations for your four year old birthday party is to let the birthday celebrant make the invitations himself. Just give him/her some art supplies and card paper. Let him/her draw whatever picture he/she wants in the front and then you write the party details at the back of the card. This is a cute and very cost-efficient way to make your own invitations.
3. Party Decorations
It is completely unnecessary to spend a lot of money on the decorations for a four year old birthday party. Small children will not appreciate elegant decorations. Kids this age just want to see lots of balloons, balls, paper chains and party hats.
