Do you give your children a birthday party every year? It gets so expensive that I don’t think I can this year. Was thinking instead I could take them to somewhere of their choice like bowling, laser tag etc with just siblings and 1 friend. What other things have you done for your kids birthdays besides parties?

  • We celebrate every year but with differing ideas, not always a big party.

  • Have a rule of a party every 2 years. I like your idea of an outing with 1-2 friends. Movie, moonlight cinema,

  • The idea of a “treat” with one or two friends works well for older kids (eg movie and pizza dinner).

  • Before my kids started school, we just had family gatherings for their birthdays. Then they started school and it was basically what appealed to them. We have had a pool party with pizza, we have been camping, we have had a shopping trip (daughter) to the city, there have been sleepovers (some with just one or two friends, some with more) We even flew interstate once or twice to see family. It all depends on your kids and your budget at the time

  • We have always mixed it up – sometimes a party and sometimes something smaller.
    We have always been guided by the kids – they let you know what they want.

  • We never did and so far my son hasn’t had any. My nephews get one every second year. Your idea sounds like a lot of fun and I’m sure they’ll love it.
