·Editor Yahoo Style UK

Your child's birthday is no small thing - it's a reason for you both to celebrate. But coming up with a-maze ideas year after year can be a bit of a headache... especially if you're slightly challenged in the creativity department.

We've done the legwork for you and searched high and low for some of the best kid's party ideas our there so help you throw an epic birthday bash that will keep the playground abuzz for weeks to come.

North West’s kidchella-themed bash will have nothing on your little one’s extravaganza…

The Frozen Party
You may be over Disney's most recent hitmaker, but your tot probably isn't ready to let it go yet. Organising a Frozen do may seem like it would be expensive, but most supermarkets stock the party bags and decorations, or you can go DIY mad with some Internet print outs, blue and silver bunting and felt tip pens. We love the idea of an Olaf pinata and a Frozen face painting corner.

The Peppa Pig Party
Any child that's a fan of Peppa Pig will probably demand a Peppa Pig birthday party at some point in his or her childhood. But don't worry about booking out a George or Peppa entertainer and try your hand at making some fun games and decorations like these.

The Winnie The Pooh Party
While the shops are bursting with Winnie the Pooh birthday party supplies for children, there's something much more quaint about making the decorations and treats yourself. Fill a balloon with sweets and cover it in yellow tissue paper strips to make a brilliant beehive pinata and serve honey (aka apple juice) as the drink choice.

The Pirate Party
Dressing up for this party is simple and one of the games could be to make bandanas or decorate T-shirts with pirate-esque designs. If the weather's dry, set up an obstacle course in the garden (complete with a walk the plank section) and don't forget to plan a treasure hunt.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Party
Perfect for children of all ages, this party can be put together on even a shoestring budget (drawing the little crawly fella on some banners and goody bags is pretty simple).

The Lego Party
Whether you're five or 35 you would probably still love a Lego party - we know we would. And the best thing about it is you can BUILD most of the decorations with your tot's existing kit. Games can include (yep, you guessed it) Lego building competions and perhaps some Lego car races - just be careful not to step on any pieces as all parents know how much that HURTS!
