Planning a kid’s birthday party can be a handful because there are endless options of themes, decorations, and activities for the little ones to enjoy. Whether you keep the gathering small with a few friends and family or invite their long list of classmates, your 6-year-old will appreciate and remember this party!
No worries if you’re having trouble thinking of a birthday theme or feel overwhelmed! Here are a few fun birthday party ideas for a 6-year-old to help you plan the most iconic event.
DIY Water Park Party
With the temperatures rising, taking a dip in a pool doesn’t seem like a bad idea. Set up a DIY water park full of slip-and-slides, water balloons, blow-up water slides, and an inflatable pool if you don’t have one. Six is the perfect age to appreciate the small things and effort their parents put into making their day perfect. Have outdoor games, plenty of food, and a playlist of hits for this outdoor birthday bash.
By creating a waterpark in your backyard, you will save money and keep the kids safe in the privacy of your home.
Bonfire Birthday Bash
Another great way to celebrate your now 6-year-old is by having a bonfire party! The kids will love roasting marshmallows to make s’mores, hearing age-appropriate spooky folktales, and watching their favorite movie on an outdoor projector. You can even set up blankets for stargazing and looking for constellations!
Cupcake Decorating Party
Another fun birthday party idea for a 6-year-old is a cupcake decorating party! Place a disposable tablecloth on your table, and then gather a variety of icing, sprinkles, candy, fruit, and other edible decorations.
The kids will stay entertained for hours as they marvel over all the yummy baked goods and sugary candy while the adults socialize and have time to themselves.
Arts and Crafts Birthday Party
If your soon-to-be-6-year-old loves anything arts and crafts, hosting an arts and crafts party is a great option. Kids will love painting on mini canvases, birdhouses, frames, or wooden letters because who wouldn’t love bringing home new art to show off?
If you want to take this arts and crafts party outdoors, you can provide a sand art station to make decorative sand bottles with various colorful sand options. This party will be an excellent way to foster art appreciation in young children while allowing them to express themselves creatively.
Other great ideas for your soon-to-be-6-year-old include the traditional sleepover party, tea party, character party, pizza party, and much more. Don’t let party planning stress you out! Your child will love their party and enjoy hanging out with their friends on their big day.
