Autumn can be a tricky time of year to organise a birthday party. With only a few months to go until Christmas, lots of families are saving up, so budgets are stretched quite thin. Additionally, there are also concerns regarding weather, autumn can be a lovely farewell to the year’s sunshine with lots of beautiful relaxing mild weather, however it can also be a torrential downpour with lots of rain, mud, and miserable weather.
So, what should you do? How can you organise an awesome birthday party for your child in autumn? A party filled with fun, games, cake, and of course, party bags.
3 Ideas For An Autumn Birthday Party
Need some ideas to help you organise an autumn birthday party? Here’s a quick list of three ideas to give you some food for thought.
- Plan Some Outdoor Games
With winter just around the corner, autumn is the last chance of the year for many people to enjoy some outdoor fun. You could enjoy party classics such as tag, hide and seek, charades, duck duck goose; or perhaps you could organise an autumn themed scavenger hunt, sending the children in teams to go find a variety of different seasonal items, fallen leaves, pinecones, spinning jennies, etc.
However, we understand that deciding on games and activities can be very tricky for some parents. So if you need an extra helping hand deciding what games to play, we recommend reading this list of 8 Great Party Games Ideas For Your Child’s Birthday Party.
- Get Creative With Arts & Crafts
If you’re the creative type, birthday parties are the ideal time to introduce your hobby to your children. After all, why buy decorations when you can make them; however you’ll be making more than just party decorations, you’ll be making memories to last a lifetime.
If you need some arts and crafts inspiration, just look outside to nature. The beautiful Earthy tones are all around us this time of the year, and nature provides us with a wide range of different materials with which to work with. For example, Babyccino
wrote about decorated leaves they made for a 5th birthday party. Perhaps you could do something similar with your children?
Another great idea for arts & crafts activities is to introduce the children to the wonderful world of science. There are lots of simple and fun experiments that you can all get involved in, one favourite amongst little ones is making slime. It’s super easy to do, all it requires is some glue, water, food colouring, and borax.
- Have A Backup Plan In Case Of Rain
Backup plans in case of rain don’t have to be elaborate, they could be as simple as a venue change. For example, if it starts to rain, perhaps you could take the children to a soft play or indoor play centre. Numerous big chain gastro pubs have attached indoor play areas where the children can play and enjoy themselves, whilst the grown-ups enjoy a chat and some tasty food.
However, if you’re just looking for a handy backup game in case the rain spoils your outdoor plans, pass the parcel is a great choice. However, here at All About Party Bags we understand that making your own pass the parcels can be very time consuming, and you’d rather be spending that time with your family. So, browse through our online store, we have a wide range of readymade pass the parcels to choose from available in a selection of different themes.
