What birthday idea will let my kids have fun but not make a big mess?

Water Balloons

Kids like throwing water balloons but you might not be thrilled with the idea of having a bunch of soaking wet kids in your house later. No matter what you birthday party theme, you can probably come up with a 'bad guy" that is related.

For a fun birthday idea that keeps the kids entertained and your house dry, create a drawing of the bad guy on a piece of plywood or other scrap wood and hide it somewhere in the yard before the party starts. Nearby, have a container of water balloons ready to go. Send the kids off to find the bad guy and let them throw the water balloons at the character. If you draw on the wood with chalk, the balloons will wash off the chalk and "make the bad guy go away."
