5 Unique Birthday Party Ideas | Cute Beltz

kids-birthday-party-ideas-2

Your child’s birthday is coming up, and you’re fresh out of savvy ideas. Sure, you could just invite over a bunch of children to run around in the backyard like every other parent does, but you want something cool and unique to make your little one feel special.

It’s your lucky day! We’re sharing some extremely fun, chic children’s birthday party ideas that will make your kid’s b-day bash legendary among his or her friends.

Dinosaur Hunter

Does your child freak out over fossils? Make your budding paleontologist’s birthday wishes come true by organizing a dinosaur hunt for him and his friends! Send kids on a mini excavation in the backyard. Simply fill plastic Easter eggs with small dino toys or wrapped candy, and hide them in a large sandbox. Give your boy and his party guests plastic beach shovels, buckets and whatever else you think they’ll need for their archaeological excursion, and just let them dig.

You might not assume that kids would enjoy sifting through a sandbox, but when dinosaurs are involved, they’ll tear into the task with T-rex-sized enthusiasm. Stick with a dino-themed cake and decorations to keep the excitement going, and let guests take home the unearthed toys and candy as party favors. Your kid will likely remember this afternoon as the best birthday bash of the era.

Pet Party

If your kid is wild about animals, let her woof it up with a pet party! Send out animal-themed invites to her friends and their pets, then wait for the fun and fur to fly. If your little animal lover is inviting her entire class, you can set stricter regulations on the beasts of honor, such as dogs only, and plan to have the party in a large, animal-friendly environment like a dog park or, if you’ve got the space, your own backyard.

Is your child is inviting a smaller, more manageable group? In that case, you’ve got some wiggle room to invite anything that mews, barks or blows bubbles. Allow creatures of all types to attend, from fish and ferrets to felines. Section off an area of your home, but beware of guests with long-standing instinctual feuds. You’d be surprised how much chaos a few fleeing cats and one determined dog can cause, so make sure all furry party attendees undergo a temperament test before they’re admitted. Mandating that everyone’s up to date with vaccinations isn’t a bad idea, either, and be sure all parents understand the party’s theme so children with pet allergies will know to decline the invite.

Cupcake Party

If there are two things girls love, they’re sweets and sleepovers. Why not combine the two into a decadent, all-night birthday bash your daughter will remember for years to come? Yes, you’re going to have a huge mess to clean up afterward, but throwing her a cupcake party will be easy.

Instead of spending money on props and a party space, blow it all on candy and confections! Purchase lots of different flavorings, sugars, toppings, icings and, of course, eggs, butter and flour. If you really want to go all out, you can pick up personalized aprons for party favors. Your daughter and her baking crew will remember this event long after their sugar highs are over.

Spa Party Theme

Ask the girls to bring their bathrobes and slippers to set the scene for this party.   Set out different facial masks and peel masks and don’t forget the cucumber slices!  Set up different stations for manicures, pedicures, facials and hairstyling.  Let the girls rotate to each station every 10-15 minutes.  Have a different color nail polish for each guest and let them try them all. Give them colorful emery boards and toe separators along with their nail polish for a birthday party favor.

Costume Party

Have the kids come in costume, no matter what time of the year it is.  It can be a sports uniform, an old Halloween costume, a dance recital costume, or their parents’ old vintage clothes. When they arrive have each one state exactly who they are impersonating and for the remainder of the party have them talk, act, and do what their character would do at all time. The other kids must call them by their characters name from that point on.

Tips for Starting a Scrapbook | Cute Beltz

scrapbook

Scrapbooking is a fun way to combine photos and memories into a family keepsake!  The idea of starting and maintaining a scrapbook can seem tedious, but once you get going, it’s easy to create something your family will cherish.

So, what do you need to get started? You’ll need basic supplies like an album, archival paper, photo corners, a glue stick, scissors, a paper trimmer, photos, and mementos.

The most common album sizes are 12×12-inches, 8.5×11-inches, and 6×6-inches. Some people go for larger size albums, as it gives more space on each scrapbook page. Smaller ones are perfect for event-specific scrapbooks.

Choose colorful paper to make a lively background for photos and other tidbits. Try to choose paper that complements, rather than distracts from, your photos. Pictures and memorabilia should be the focus of the page.

Bring your photos out of hiding.  When photos are just sitting around, they don’t tell a story. Imagine finding a long-lost family picture. What would you want to know about the people in the picture? Keep these thoughts in mind as you start scrapbooking.

Use embellishments like stickers, yarn, buttons, glitter, safety pins, and pretty much whatever sticks. They enhance your pages, and add an extra-personal touch. Some love glitter and totally bling out their pages. Other people are into tags. Don’t hold back!

Using glue will help your photos stick around for years to come, so you want to be sure to use an acid-free kind (acid can speed up the deterioration of photos). Some of the most popular adhesives are photo squares, removable glue dots, and craft glue.

For layout inspiration, check out books, magazines, and websites. Craft stores often have sample layouts displayed. Websites with loads of inspiration include Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbook.com, and Two Peas In A Bucket.

To begin your layout for a page, choose four to eight photos that tell a story. Pick a few colors from the pictures and choose coordinating paper and embellishments. Lay your photos out on the paper to see how they best fit before you do any gluing. If corners and edges are securely stuck to the paper, the pictures will stay put. Start with less adhesive than you think you need.

Journaling is a key step in telling your story. Include the “who”, “what”, “when”, “where”, and “why”, along with how the people in the pictures felt. Have others weigh in for a different perspective. Make sure whatever pens and markers you use are acid-free. Adding a title will give your audience a quick idea of what the story. Make a mistake? No worries! It makes it even more real. There you go, you scrapbooking pro, you. Have fun!
