How to Plan the Perfect Birthday Party for Your Active Child

If you have an active child, special occasions like birthday parties can be difficult. It's tough for them to sit still and to be the center of attention for hours when they'd much rather be running around, making noise, and playing with their friends. In these situations, it's often better to plan the party with the child's activity level in mind. If you’re planning an event for children, consider hosting one of these types of parties.

Go to a Trampoline Park

Trampoline parks offer kids so much space to play, just make sure everyone takes the necessary safety precautions in order to avoid injuries or other problems. The monitors at the park are well set up to prevent this and to offer supervision to the individual children in your group, as well. Most parks offer packages for birthday parties that allow you to include a light dinner, cake, and other special party elements for the birthday child.

Rent a Bouncy Castle

Another great birthday party idea for your active child is to rent a bouncy castle. You can have it set up at your home or at the venue of your choice. Then, allow the children to bounce to their hearts' content. This is a great way to let everyone burn off as much energy as possible during the party, and it is sure to be remembered for years to come. Contact a company in your area that rents inflatables to book a moon bounce, bouncy castle, or another inflatable for your child's birthday party.

Plan a Laser Tag Outing

Older kids who love to run, jump, and play are sure to love a birthday party planned at a laser tag arcade. Kids and participating adults are assigned to teams, put on special vests, and shoot each other with laser guns. This is a great way to get some exercise and to enjoy a lively birthday activity. Many laser tag venues offer birthday party packages, so be sure to ask if these are available. Either way, your child is sure to enjoy the chance to play this competitive sport with their friends on such a special day.

When it's time to plan a birthday party for your active child, you may need to use your creativity. Sitting around a table eating cake and opening presents may not work as well as you'd like to entertain them, and it may be time to consider scheduling an event for everyone instead. Consider laser tag, a bouncy castle, or the trampoline park for active children rather than a traditional birthday party.
