There are advertisements for kids’ parties are everywhere you go — restaurants, gymnastics studios, the YMCA, hair salons, on and on. It only makes sense that all of these places want in on the kids’ party scam; they know they can make a fortune hosting one. While it might be easier to have a party at a “special” venue, that convenience doesn’t come cheap. For a little bit of work on their end, these hosts charge from around $300 to more than $500 for a single event.
But it’s simple to throw a child’s party on your own without spending a small fortune. A party your child and guests will love can be easily pulled together for under $100; how much under depends on your specific needs.
