We have over a decade of experience, multiple awards and are recognised as one of U.K's leading family entertainers with literally thousands of events under our belt. We have seen so many different parties, different ideas, some of them more successful than others. As part of the Wonder Kids Blog I have written quite a few ideas and tips that relate to birthday parties. So I thought it's about time that all the posts that I have written over the years should get a home to bring them together and make it easier for you to find them and use them.
Where to start
Is a bungee jumping party a good idea for five year olds? How about a disco for one year olds? Ok, we are being ridiculous but here you can see what works best for the different ages from our experience.
This is always an interesting topic to talk about. The truth is there are no right or wrongs but I share my experience in this post and show you how to avoid some pitfalls too. Also included in this blog post are two free downloads, we have the Party Guest List to keep track of the RSVP’s and an Equipment Checklist to make sure you don’t forget something vital like a knife for the cake. This happens a lot!
Only a few years ago this option just wouldn’t have been possible but now we have an ever growing range of Party Invitations that you can download. You can choose to either print the exact number you need at home or send them to an online printer to have them printed. This is a brilliant range of invites second to none.
Party Tables & Decorations
When you get into the party venue, or at home, the first place to start in my opinion is the party table. I explain why in this great post, just click on the button to read more. Also covered in this post:

Plus we have loads of great downloads in this blog post like the table planner, Decoration & Party Bag planner too, all available for free.
Wonder Kids Blog
The power of the Wonder Kids Blog, we have literally hundreds of great ideas across this website that your little ones will love to try at their party. I have included just two blog posts below that show how many games, decoration and free downloads we share for any particular theme.
Games, Activities & Music
Are you hiring an entertainer? Here at Wonder Kids we offer three amazing party options that take all the hassle and stress out of a party and ensures the kids will be rolling around with laughter. Fear not though, if you fancy doing the entertaining yourself or you just want to play a couple of games either before or after some entertainment we have hundreds of great games for you to discover in our blog.
I have linked below to our Pass the Parcel Guide and Pinata Guide which seem to be the two most popular party games and two that can be made better with some simple ideas. We even sell ready made Pass the Parcel packs so it really is easy for you.
Try using the search bar at the top of the page to find some other interesting games. If you type in summer for instance you will find games featuring water and that are great for the garden or if you try searching for Aladdin, Knights, Ninja Turtles or anything else you can think of we might have something for you.
For music you should try Spotify, you can get a free account and create a playlist of all the best songs to use for your party. Want a Greatest Showman Party? then you can create a playlist with all of your favourite Greatest Showman songs. Again make sure you follow Wonder Kids on there too!
Food & Drinks
Our Kids Kitchen is another idea that I just love, every week I share family friendly recipes that kids will not only love but they can help to make too! Many of these recipes and ideas are also themed with some of todays most popular party themes. We have Ninja Turtle pizza cookies, Unicorn Tear drinks and even Hulk Treats plus much much more.
I really hope this helps you put on brilliant parties that your kids love but that you can enjoy too. I speak to parents every week who sound really stressed out from planning a party so I hope these ideas can help. If it all sounds a little too much then please take a look at our Party Kits too, They contain everything you will need to throw an amazing birthday party, they are very affordable and your kids will love the party.
I have put the whole Party Planner together and linked to it below . This set includes everything that is available above plus I have added a To Do List, Gift Tracker and a Party Planning Timeline too so please do make sure you download it and use. Thank you for taking the time to go through this page and please do just get in touch if you need some help planning a party, I am more than happy to help even if you are not booking one of our great party services.
