So, let’s dive in and get started on planning a stress-free party that your child will love!

Keep your Last-Minute Kids’ Party simple

When planning a last-minute party, it’s important to keep things simple. Don’t try to plan an elaborate event with too many activities and decorations. Stick to a simple theme, and focus on the essentials, such as food, drinks, and easy setup manageable activities.

Choose a venue

Consider renting a party venue if you don’t have time to decorate your home or yard. Many venues offer packages that include decorations, food, and activities. This can save you time and stress and ensure your child has a great party.

Online invitations

Save time and money by using online invitations. There are many websites and apps that offer free, customizable invitations that you can send out quickly. Plus, you can track RSVPs and send reminders to guests. You can also design your own invitations using free online apps like Canva. Check out my shop for more printable invitations.

Quick decorations

Don’t have time for elaborate decorations? No problem. Buy some balloons, streamers, and simple decorations from your local party supply store. These can be set up quickly and will create a festive atmosphere. Print out party banners like these at home or your local print shop, cut them, and decorate your party. These party decorations can also double as photo backdrops!

Order Food

Ordering food from a local restaurant or catering company saves time and energy. Many offer party platters and packages that can be delivered or picked up quickly. Or, consider having a pizza party or a taco bar, which are easy to set up and manage. Lots of grocery stores offer party food and dessert at affordable prices.

If you don’t have time to plan elaborate games and activities, consider setting up a craft table or a coloring station. You can also put together a simple scavenger hunt or have a dance party with a playlist of your child’s favorite songs.

Kids these days are wild about Bingo games as well.

Have a plan B

If you’re planning an outdoor party, have a plan B in case of bad weather. Consider renting a tent or having an indoor space available as a backup. This will ensure that the party can continue without interruption.

Enlist help

Don’t be afraid to ask for help from friends or family. They can help with setup, cleanup, and managing the party. Plus, it’s always more fun to plan a party with others. If one of your friends bakes for a living, ask her to make a special cake for your kiddo.

Keep it short

When planning a last-minute party, keep it short and sweet. A two-hour party is plenty of time for kids to have fun and enjoy the festivities.

Enjoy the Party

Remember, the most important thing is to have fun and enjoy the party with your child. Don’t stress too much about the details; focus on making memories with your family and friends.

Planning a last-minute party for your child can be overwhelming, but with these hacks, you’ll be able to create a fun and memorable event in no time. Remember to keep it simple, enlist help, and focus on having fun with your child and their friends. With creativity and a positive attitude, you can throw an amazing party your child will love and cherish forever. So, let’s get started and have a blast!

Spring Bingo Game with Cute Designs and Printable Tokens

Spring Bingo Game with Cute Designs and Printable Tokens

If you plan a shabby chic kids’ party this spring, consider adding a fun spring bingo game. A 5×5 bingo game with adorable pastel eggs, animals, and flowers can be a great way to entertain the little ones while adding some festive flair to your party.

spring bingo game printable

Here’s how to play the game:


  • Bingo cards (5×5 grid with adorable pastel eggs, animals, and flowers)
  • Printable tokens included in this file or spring or easter objects to be used as tokens
  • Calling cards (with corresponding designs to the bingo cards)
  • Scissors or paper cutter
  • Prizes (optional)


  1. Print out enough bingo cards and tokens for each player, making sure to have various designs. You can find printable tokens online or use the adorable ones included with your printable.
  2. Cut out the calling cards with the corresponding designs on them. Shuffle the cards and place them in a bowl or hat.
  3. Hand out the bingo cards and tokens to each player.
  4. Explain the game’s rules: The goal is to get five squares in a row, either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. The caller will randomly select one calling card at a time and call out the corresponding design (such as “blue flower” or “yellow chick”). If a player has that design on their card, they cover it with a token. The first player to get five squares in a row yells, “Bingo!” and wins.
  5. You can give prizes to the winner(s) if you have prizes.

A 5×5 bingo game with adorable pastel eggs, animals, and flowers can be fun and festive to your shabby chic kids’ party. The game is easy to play and can be customized to fit your party theme. So gather your little ones, print out some bingo cards and tokens, and let the games begin!
