At-Home Bday Party Activities

We're throwing my son a 5th Bday Party at home. Our budget is tight. Any ideas on some fun things to have them do? My son suggested Moon Sand. What do you think about that?

  • It can get messy...but if you have a place that would work. You can also look into crafts.

    Water balloons are fun if it's warm enough where you are and you don't mind the kids getting wet.

    If you have Hot Wheels tracks, you can set some up on the patio of something liek that and let the kids have fun racing the cars.

  • We always had our sons parties at the house and several things to consider:

    1-Do a treasure hunt with riddles to find the treasure
    2-Have a "field day" at your house where everyone can compete
    3-Have a few kids over and have a movie day with popcorn
