Being a parent is hard work, so 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 birthday Cards and Flyers make party planning child’s play. Kick off your little one’s big day with classic stationery-inspired Card invitations, or send an animated Flyer to catch everyone’s attention. Whichever you choose, our online kids birthday invitations have no ads ever—for you or your guests. You want only the best for your little one, so we’re here to help you make that happen.
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 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 invites in a snap.
How to make birthday party invitations for kids
Making your own birthday invitations is simple with both our Cards and Flyer invitations. Sending a card? Add your details to one of our designs, or use your own image with our Upload Your Own kids birthday invitations. Plus, pick out an envelope liner and digital backdrop to match. Sending a Flyer? Start with one of our 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 in your birthday invitation
Once you’ve landed on the perfect design, you can start adding the most important details to your birthday invites. Wondering how to write a birthday invitation? 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 your birthday girl or boy 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.
Managing your kids’ birthday party event
Whether you sent a Card or Flyer invitation, all of our invitation templates come with easy RSVP tracking. We make it easy for you to keep tabs on your headcount, and know how many guests are planning to attend. If you need to track headcount for both kids and adults, send a Flyer to keep track of those numbers separately. Forgot to mention a specific detail, or have event updates to share? Our custom birthday invitations also include free guest messaging so you can streamline all your communications. Instead of messaging individual guests, send a group message to all RSVP’d guests at once. It’s as simple as that. On to the next? Ready to host your own birthday party or throw one for a friend?
