Birthday Party Ideas For Nine Year Old

Matilda's birthday is fast approaching and it has been difficult to decide what way we are going to celebrate it. We have gone from having lunch in the local Wetherspoons to Afternoon Tea to a Pamper Party to combining a Pamper party and afternoon tea. It almost seems to have been so much easier when she was 5 or 6 years old and she just wanted a party in a booked hall with a disco and a dressed up character. Now she really knows what she wants and with the girls around us growing up so fast, its sometimes hard to choose what to do that is going to thrill and excite them.

Afternoon Tea

This is actually one of Matilda's favourite activities to do and it makes her feel so grown up. We have had afternoon tea, on a boat down the River Thames, in a posh London hotel and in a cake shop in London. But you can take afternoon tea anywhere these days and if you shop around, you can often get a 2 for 1 voucher from places like Groupon. Afternoon tea consists of sandwiches, fancy cakes and scones with a cup of tea. What we love about it is that it is such an old fashioned thing to do, yet Matilda loves to do it.

Pamper Party

When little girls are 8 or 9 years old, they start thinking more about their appearance and how they want their hair to be done. Matilda is experimenting with makeup now, like most other little girls. So this is a great idea for a party for girls. We always feel so good when we have had a good pamper, so imagine how they will feel too. You can either find someone local to do this for you, some salons offer this as a package for kids and some people work from home and will come to your house.

Art Party

Some places like pottery shops will offer kids parties as an additional part of the companies or if there is a local artist they might come to your house to do painting lessons or other things like jewellery making.

Shopping Trip And Eating Out

Shopping is always a winner with little girls. Give them some money to go round the shops whilst you sit somewhere close and have a coffee. Then go for a pizza or ice creams somewhere to finish the day off. If they go shopping, it makes them feel grown up ad independent.


If there is a good film on, then this is an excellent option and you can do it quite cheaply too. Some cinemas do kids tickets for £1 or £2 on a weekend morning. Save money by buying sweets and popcorn beforehand and giving them to the kids to take in. find a cool movie that they all want to watch and let them be little grown-ups.

Theme Park Day Out

This is an excellent one for the fast-paced kids, the ones that love to get their adrenalin pumping. If theme parks are not your kid's thing, then you can try something else like Madame Tussauds or Shreks Adventure. We are taking Tilly to Kidzania with a friend for a day out to celebrate her birthday as well as her party.
