Birthday Parties on a Budget

By ClubMom Member Amber, Parker, CO

My husband's income is the sole source for our home, and we live on a pretty tight budget.

Even so, I still want to make my kids' birthday parties ones that they will never forget.

Be creative and spend some time. Time is money so if you don't have the money, you have to spend the time.

I have a few suggestions to help plan an unforgettable birthday on a budget.

Toys and Gifts for Smart Kids - Educational Toys and Games Gift Guide


First of all, choose a theme. My kids will pick a theme based on their toys.

For instance, my son loves Nemo and has a few Nemo figurines and stuffed toys. For his last birthday party, I used his toys to decorate instead of buying decorations that will only get used once.

You can also give the small figurine-type toys a good wash and then use them on the birthday cake.

Second, for favor bags, I just use scraps of fabric and sew up the sides to make little bags. With a permanent marker or fabric paint, I write a child's name on each bag.

Instead of party games, I like to do a craft, and that is the "goody" that you can put in the goody bag. For instance, for my son's Nemo party, I got some fish sun catchers for the kids to paint. They were cheap and the kids loved doing it.

You can even do something with construction paper and crayons, depending on the age of the children. Throw in a package of gummies (they make almost every kind) that match the party theme and you have a goody bag that every kid will love.
