Birthday is a special day for every person. I like to spend my B-day around the people that mean the most for me. We have a lunch or dinner (or both) and a cake with good conversation.

But with kids birthdays become even more special. They got to hang out with other kids, get some good gift, they are the star of the day,... Parents want to make it fun and memorable for their little angels.

Here are some ideas for your next birthday party for the youngest ones:

- ZOO party

Kids adore animals so Zoo is a place that every kids likes. But this party is not about visiting the Zoo but more like creating your own at the house. You ask all the kids that are invited to bring their own animal with them. You could go with real animals but that could cause quite some problems so i suggest that you go with stuffed animals instead.

You can trying getting boxes so each kid can create a home out of it for the animal they will bring. Have markers, sticers, scissors and other things ready so kids can create a nice home for their animal friends. When they finish with it the presentations of all animal friends begins.

You can also ask kids to draw their animals and have a comeptition for best draw. Of course you have to try to be creative with your food too . Cake in a shape of a birthday kid animal or a lot of little cakes in a shape of different animals.

- Camping birthday party

Of course is better to have a camping b-day party outdoors then inside the house so if you have a backyard and weather allows you go for the outside version. But inside camping will be just as much fun for little campers too.

First thing to do is to make everybody feel they are in the nature. Outside that is not a problem but insite create trees and flowers from cardboards. Use few tents, picnik tables, blankets and all other things conected with camping. Plastic pool offers a lot of fun expecially for hot summer days. Kids can play in those for hours and maybe you can even make it into fishing place.

At parties different areas are usually successful. So create different areaslike camping area, picnik area, arts and crafts area, fishing areas, cooking area,..
If you plan to camp for a longer time buy each kid a flashlight in a dollar store. Those are hella fun when it gets dark.

For the cake, go with something conected with camping. So called dirt cake are very popular - just use a lot of chocolate so it looks really dirty JEJE!

- Ice cream birthday party

Right idea for hot summer days. Make it sure you have enough of ice cream ready. And don't forget chocolate chip, fruit, fudge, syrups, almonds, nuts, m&m's, and all other things that make a fantastic combination with ice cream.

Let every kid build their own masterpiece ice cream on their own and turn it into a competition. You can take pictures of it too and give it to kids for a memory.
Ice cake is a logical choice for this party. You can also serve cupcakes with ice cream at the top.

Invitations for this party can include ice cream truck or a big picture of a birthday kid with ice cream.

So what will you next kids birthday party be about?
