Kids’ birthday invitations and invitation templates

Being a parent is hard work but making awesome party invites shouldn’t be. Our goal is to make your job just a little easier, especially when it comes to hosting a kids’ birthday party. Whether it’s their very first birthday or you’ve done this a few times, our online kids’ birthday party invitations make party planning child’s play. Kick off your little one’s big day with a birthday invitation card to catch everyone’s attention. You want only the best for your little one, so we’re here to help you make that happen. Our online kids' birthday invitations have no ads ever—for you or your guests.

When to send out birthday invitations for your little one

Luckily with online kids’ birthday invitations, you have a little more wiggle room with your sending timeline. A good rule of thumb to follow is to send them out about three to five weeks before your event, but no sooner than eight weeks. If you have your details finalized and are eager to send before the five week mark—go for it! You can always send easy reminders and party details to RSVP’d guests as your event approaches to put it back on their radar. If you’re coming up on the three week mark and still need to send your invites, don’t worry either. Sending kids’ birthday invitations online is fast and easy. You can create, customize, and send your birthday invitation card in a snap.

How to make birthday party invitations for kids

Making your own birthday invitations is simple with our online invitation maker. Add your details to one of our birthday invitation templates, or use your own image with and upload your own design. Then pick out an envelope liner and digital backdrop to match. Sending a Flyer? Start with one of our animated kids birthday invitation templates, and customize it until it matches the vibe of your kids’ birthday party. Add your own photo of the birthday girl or boy, or add stickers to make it extra festive.

What to write on a birthday invitation

Once you’ve landed on the perfect design, you can start adding the most important details to your birthday invites. Our birthday invitation templates make it easy for you to simply fill in your details, but also give you the freedom to edit your text if you want to get creative. Let guests know you’re excited for them to help you celebrate your little one’s big day by keeping your invite light and cheery. Make sure to mention how old the little one is turning, and let guests know if they need to bring anything so you can avoid all the follow-ups. Your kids’ birthday invitation wording is also a great place to add “no gifts” or if you would rather have guests make a charitable donation.
