A lot goes into planning a birthday party, especially if your child is still at an age where you’re in charge of sending out the invitations! It can be tricky trying to plan a special birthday if you are worried about staying on budget, especially if you are trying to make all your kids ideas come to life. Once you (or your child) have decided on a theme, you’ll want to set your budget and decide where you’re going to host the party. We have a few unique ideas that will “wow” your kids, help you stay on budget, and ensure you are ready for the big day.

Check out the Dollarwise Pinterest page for more birthday party inspiration. From decorations, recipes, to games, and more.

DIY Backyard Mini Golf

This is a fantastic idea to get your kids and your guests interacting, moving, and having fun! This can be as easy as setting up obstacles, creating make shift holes (using cups placed on the ground), and making paths by laying down ropes and boxes.

You’ll need supplies such as balloons, old cereal boxes, rope, buckets, cups, sand, aluminum baking pans, or anything around the house that can be used. Set up each starting point with a balloon attached to a string, and create your obstacles and paths using rope, boxes, and any other crafty obstacle you have around the house.

The possibilities are endless when you make your own mini golf!
