Children's birthday parties at the bowling alley are always an exciting prospect for the birthday boy or girl in your family, with bowling, laser skirmish and party food providing the ultimate base for a fantastic celebration.
However, there's no doubt each child has their own personal interests and style - and there's no reason you can't personalise parties with a little creative imagination!
Here are a few internationally-inspired ideas to get your brainstorming started:
Mexican bowling kids parties
Everyone loves a little Mexican culture, and it's also one of the easiest themes to carry off well. Ask your child's guests to come dressed in ponchos, Mexican hats and temporary moustaches. Think colourful, festive decorations, and you could even bring along a pinata filled with lollies and other small prizes.
Australian bowling kids parties
A kids party inspired by Australia itself can be an exciting way to celebrate your child's heritage, while adding a little homegrown flavour at the same time. Go for an Aussie outback theme by dressing up in an Australian outback hat complete with corks, and younger kids will love to bring along soft toy kangaroos and wombats to 'join their team'. Otherwise, embrace Australia's beach culture with a sea, sun and sand themed party - think swimming accessories, inflatable palm trees, and surf lifesaving flags!
African bowling kids parties
An African theme will make your kids feel as if they're bowling while on safari. Encourage your birthday boy or girl and their guests to go all out and dress up as their favourite African animal - there's sure to be plenty of lions, giraffes and zebras! They could also pretend to be a wildlife ranger - dress in khaki, bring along some binoculars and a camera, and you're all set for some wild bowling and laser skirmish fun.
