How to Make up for a Missed Birthday Party

You might be looking for epic kids’ birthday party places or inspiring ideas for at-home parties. Let’s look at a few of our favorites to get your creative juices flowing!
This last year has been...interesting to say the least. Lockdowns and restrictions created a lot of disappointing moments.

Since birthday parties during COVID were mostly frowned upon, most kids missed their birthdays last year — at least the fun part of having a birthday party and playing with their friends. That means this year it’s time to make up for it.

Looking for birthday party ideas that will blow your kids away and put a big smile on their faces? Check out these amazing kids birthday party ideas for inspiration!

1. Backyard Movie Night

It’s likely you and your kids haven’t been to see many movies lately, which might make this kids’ birthday party idea even more special. Set up a projector in your backyard and make a nice space for the kids to hang out. If you have enough folding chairs or patio furniture, try setting up a mini-theater. If not, a few blankets on the grass will do.

Put on your child’s favorite movie or pick a new one that your child and their friends are all itching to see. You can also catch Sky Zone in The War With Grandpa movie. Add a few bowls of popcorn, a couple of snacks, and sodas, and you’ve got a great time for all!

2. DIY Pizza Party

If you have a big kitchen and a big sense of adventure, try a DIY pizza party. Prep a few bowls of toppings such as meats, veggies, pineapple, and more. Each child can have a blast rolling out their own dough and decorating their pizza with their favorite toppings.

Don’t forget, you don’t have to stick to traditional pizza if you don’t want to. Make it a dessert pizza with frosting instead of pizza sauce and bowls of chopped-up fruits, cookies, and other bits for toppings. Get creative, there are a ton of things you can do with this!

3. Scavenger Hunt

Activate your kids’ adventurous side by preparing a scavenger hunt for their birthday party. This can be done wherever it feels safest such as outdoors at a local park if the weather is nice or at your house.

Aim for whatever would work for your child’s age group. Perhaps they have to find an object that starts with every letter of the alphabet or search for objects of a certain color. Another idea is to search for items that are out of place (such as items found in nature that are hidden in a mall).

To keep things more sanitary (and so nobody has to buy anything) send each group with a smartphone to take pics of the objects rather than having to bring them.

And of course
4. Sky Zone Trampoline Park Birthday Party

Some parents might have secretly enjoyed the excuse not to have to plan a big party. Kids birthday parties tend to leave parents exhausted and the kids still riding their sugar high and bouncing off the walls. A kids’ party place that leaves the kids exhausted and gives the parents a chance to relax is just what every parent dreams of.

The great news is that’s exactly what you’ll get by having a party at Sky Zone! Known as the world’s first and best indoor trampoline park, we take everyone’s health and safety seriously.
