How To Plan a Fun Kids Birthday Party for your little one? - Astropark Skip to main content

Planning a birthday party for your child can be as thrilling as it is challenging. Knowing the best time to start planning and setting a realistic budget are crucial for ensuring a fun and stress-free celebration.

Creating a kids birthday party that’s enjoyable for your child and their friends involves careful selection of activities and themes. Consider what the kids enjoy most—whether it’s sports, adventure games, or creative play.

For example, outdoor activity birthday parties provide unique advantages over traditional parties. They allow children to engage in more dynamic and energetic activities that promote physical health and teamwork, all while enjoying the fresh air. Additionally, outdoor settings can often accommodate larger groups without feeling cramped, making them ideal for lively games and activities.

At Astropark, we’ve completely revamped our party packages to streamline your planning process and make your child’s party truly unforgettable.

How far in advance should I start planning a kids’ birthday party?

To ensure a smooth and well-organised party, start planning at least 4 weeks in advance. This timeline is ideal for securing your preferred venue and arranging all the necessary activities without any last-minute hassles. Early planning also allows you to send out invitations in time for guests to RSVP. This is particularly important for busy parents who may need to arrange their schedules around the party.

At Astropark, early booking is recommended as our party slots fill up quickly, ensuring you get the best experience possible on your chosen date.

How much should I budget for a kids’ birthday party?

Effective budgeting is key to hosting a memorable event without breaking the bank. Consider the costs associated with the venue, activities, food, and party favours. At Astropark, our packages start at just €240, which covers a fun-filled two hours for 12 children with an expert supervisor for the full party. Each additional child is just €20, making it easy to include everyone in the fun. Our kids birthday parties are designed to give you the best value, combining exciting activities with delicious food and excellent supervision, ensuring that every child has fun with their friends in a safe and organised environment.
