3 creative birthday party ideas for your curious kid

(BPT) - As a parent, it can be tough to come up with birthday ideas for your kids. While pool parties, trips to an amusement park or sleepovers are fun, they can be a bit predictable and common. If you want to throw a memorable birthday party, consider focusing on creative, hands-on activities that engage your child in a different way.

Playtime isn't just a way to keep children entertained. It also fosters creativity and independent thinking and boosts learning. According to The Hechinger Report, a nonprofit news source dedicated to childhood education, studies show that play is critical to raising resilient and well-adjusted kids of all ages. While many schools are incorporating play as an educational tool, birthday parties are a prime opportunity to encourage creative activities and sensory opportunities for play outside the school environment.
