Children at this age relate well to other children and are very enthusiastic. They understand the idea of a birthday party, and can anticipate it months in advance. They tend to latch on to their closest friends so make sure to invite them. Kids at this age also tend to like helping with the planning so give them the opportunity to help throw their favorite birthday party.
Many children at this age are in school or pre-school so your guest list can be made up of your child’s schoolmates. Although many children are in school and used to being away from their parents, some children may need to be accompanied by an adult.
Length of party
1-1 1/2 hours
Entertainment for age
This age group has short attention spans, so the entertainment program for the party should consist of a few different activities- around five. A mixture of hands-on and learning is always a great combo. Children at this age can participate in the Bake-a-Cake party, our best selling party.

Safety for age
Make sure the party area is childproof and have a couple of adults on hand to help keep children together and the party organized.
Camp Out Party
What fun it is to spend a weekend away in the middle of nature, sleeping in a tent and cooking food over an open fire just like the cavemen. Many children love this feeling of self sufficiency and freedom that comes with camping so why not turn that excitement into a birthday party? You don’t have to go away necessarily to have a successful camp out party, all you need is an outdoor area that is wide enough and safe for a pack of children.
Choose an outdoor setting like a park, or even your backyard for this adventurous party. Set up a portable grill so that your food can be served warm and the kids can watch as the flames turn that raw meat into something delectable and irresistible.
If your party location is a little more adventurous than your back yard, have a first aid kit as well as a snake bite kit handy, just in case! Spray all your guests with non deet bug repellent and sunscreen as soon as they arrive. As much as we all like lobsters, we don’t want our kids to look like them at the end of the day.
