Why not bring in more than an entertainer for your birthday party? When you do that, the stress of keeping party kids happy doesn't fall solely on you. Such a relief! Some companies will bring the entire birthday party while others provide certain elements. All you have to do is host! Or, maximize your backyard fun by renting a bounce house or other kind of inflatable.

If you're not going to one of these birthday party places, you can even rent bubble balls or a zip line for your backyard. Remember, the options are endless!
