When you think about $500, what do you imagine doing with it? Paying your mortgage? Getting ahead on car payments?
Today, that’s the average amount that parents are spending on their child’s birthday parties – each year! There’s no question that the cost of having fun is going up, but if you are like many parents, $500 is a bit high.
The good news is, there are a number of ways you can throw an amazing birthday party for your child without spending a small fortune. One option that is growing in popularity is to throw a trampoline park birthday party.
1. Ask About Package Deals
When planning a birthday party at a trampoline park, one of the first things you should do is find out about the type of party packages they offer. Most locations are going to charge a flat rate for a certain number of guests to bounce and eat.
This is a great way to save some money. There are also some parks that even provide a cake. Be sure to take advantage of the available packages.
2. Choose a Theme
If you want to make sure your child’s party is unforgettable, be sure to choose a theme. Don’t worry, you don’t have to overdo it with the decorations.
Get a few balloons and some themed plates. Most of the kids are going to be too busy bouncing and having fun to even worry about what character is used for the decorations.
3. Make Sure to Have a Take Home Goody Bag
A great way to say “thanks for coming” is by giving your child’s guests a goody bag. Don’t worry, this doesn’t need to be another item on your to-do list. We sell ready-made goody bags for birthday parties at Sky High Sports! They’re the perfect ending to a birthday well spent! We’ll help pass them out to guests at the end of the party.
4. Let Parents Bounce Too
Many times, parents are so wrapped up in the planning part of their child’s party, they forget to have fun. Make sure you take some time to “get out there” and play with your kid and their friends.
Encourage other parents to do this too. Everyone will have more fun if they jump and play.
