Planning a birthday party can be tricky. If your kids are young, they will make a big mess in your house. If they’re older then they won’t want a ‘boring’ day at home doing activities. This means you’ve got to think what they will find fun at their age. If you’ve got a teenager then it’s slightly eaiser because you’ve got things like paintballing and airsoft that will keep them occupied for the day or weekend.

However, finding something that your young child will enjoy and isn’t too expensive can be hard. Check out these 10 birthday outing ideas.
