As the kids get older, it’s sometimes difficult to come up with birthday party themes.
Sure a sleepover is great, but they definitely need to exert some energy first! Sports themes are becoming more popular, especially with all of the indoor batting cages, open skates, and open basketball courts. Get the kids active, and exhausted!
It’s still fun to send the kids home with a couple of “goody bag” items, even though they’re getting older. Thankfully we have great options that aren’t disposable and won’t give them a major sugar rush.
