Kids' Birthday Party Invitations

Cute, fun, and festive invitations to make for a kids' party

Sending out invitations for your child's next birthday celebration doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg. And since you know you'll have to spend money on food, beverages, and possibly even entertainment, it's a good idea to save as much as possible on things you can make at home such as birthday party invitations, decorations, and even gift bags. Plus, when you make your own kids' birthday party invitations and decorations, you and your child can decide on the exact design you want and have fun making your own DIY cards and party accessories.

Here are some great ideas for fun, festive, and easy birthday party invitations you can make with kids.
