I’ve always wanted to have an outdoor birthday party for my kids, but both of them have cold weather birthdays. Luckily we’re having a very temperate fall this year, and the weather is warm enough to have Olive’s 3rd birthday in the park! I love park birthdays because kids have fun running around even if you don’t have many activities planned, and it gives the adults a chance to hang out as well. Plus Olive loves the great outdoors!
I plan on keeping it very simple because cars are not allowed inside the park and we have to carry everything in ourselves on carts and strollers. That means balloons for decorations, small favors (a paperback Berenstain Bears Halloween book), and some easy outdoor games. I tend to go overboard with food, but I tried to stick with classic kids’ party fare – pizza delivered to the park, fruit/veggies, cheese, chips/dip, and of course cake.
I’m sure the kids will have fun running around and playing with toys most of the time, but I’d like to have a couple of activities planned. Here are 25 of my favorite children’s game ideas for a park birthday party!
