When planning a party for your child, consider spending most of the financial resources on the party itself rather than the invitations. Thanks to the Internet, you can find a variety of ways to make fun, creative and free party invitations. Easily create invitations that illustrate kid-friendly party themes. Your child can even help. With no money spent on the invites, you can devote all the party funds to decorations, food and fun.

Internet Invitations

Create a free electronic invitation on a website, such as Evite, that offers Internet invitation management services. There, for instance, you will find over 200 themes for a child's birthday party alone, from Barbie to trucks, so you can select an invitation that best represents the party theme. Explore the "kids corner" section of the website to find even more party themes, such as slumber parties or team sports events.

With an Evite, you e-mail the invitation to your guests, who can RSVP directly via the Evite's website. You can also provide a map and directions to the party's location, as well as a description of the event. Whether you are planning a party for a birthday, communion or graduation, Evite has a variety of templates on the website to create a free invitation.

Printable Invitations

Surf the Internet to find one of the many websites that offers free printable invitations. Some websites provide themed templates. For example, for a child's party at a bowling alley, there may be a background image of bowling balls and pins. If you're hosting a pizza party for after a soccer game, you can superimpose text on top of a soccer ball and field. For a broader child's party theme, look for images such as balloons and clowns. Simply fill in your information in the spaces provided, such as the time, date and place, and print.

Other websites allow you to further customise the invitation. You can add text wherever you like or change the font type, size and colours. Then print the invitation to the size you specify. Use fun colours and fonts that call kids' parties to mind. For example, choose a bubble font for the headline and make each letter a different colour.

Homemade Invitations

If online templates lack the personal touch you want for the party invitation, you can make your own at home, which is a great way to involve your child. Use desktop publishing software to design your own invitation. Insert photos your child helps to choose and make the invitation pop with personality. Add a special touch by punching holes in the top and tying a ribbon in a bow. Let your child finish the invitation off by decorating it herself. She can glue on sequins or beads, sprinkle it with glitter or sign her name.
