Free Birthday Parties & Treats For Your Child

Posted: Updated:
Any parent will tell you birthday parties for the kids can get very expensive. News 8 has birthday parties on the cheap. In fact, we've planned an amazing birthday celebration for your child, and it won't cost you one cent.\r\n\r\nWith just a bit of planning on your part, instead of spending hundreds of dollars on your child's birthday party, you can have all of this and much more for free.\r\n\r\nIkea wants to invite your children and their two best buddies to a free birthday blowout. With cake, face painting and even a magic show, this birthday bash is a must for moms. \r\n\r\n"Kind of takes the burden off the family, especially these economic times," mother Jean Dustan said.\r\n\r\nTo double the savings for Jean, she brought her two-year-old twins.\r\n\r\n"Oh it's fabulous, really good. We are new to San Diego and this is a great treat," she said.\r\n\r\nAfter Ikea, if the kids still have energy to burn, go to and you'll find a long list of birthday bonuses. For instance, join the Baskin Robbins Birthday Club for a free scoop of ice cream. Same goes at Cold Stone Creameries. In most cases, fill out a quick registration form in advance and batches of birthday bargains will be e-mailed to you, like meal deals at Burger King, California Pizza Kitchen, Denny's and even Islands.\r\n\r\nThen work the food off by heading to Balboa Park, where every Tuesday of every month you'll find free admission to a host of museums. Be sure to cap the day off with a free portrait package offered by Olin Mills that's sure to grab a smile. Ikea even finishes the freebies with a birthday gift.\r\n\r\nYear after year moms save money and time, and the kids keep coming back.\r\n\r\n"I rate it as the coolest party ever," one child said.\r\n\r\nThe free birthday party at Ikea takes place on the first Tuesday at every month. If your child is 10 and under, just give Ikea a call to reserve your spot.\r\n
