The Basics of Planning Kids Parties
It does not really matter whether you’re throwing a lavish and luxurious party for your kids or whether its a simple and inexpensive one. What really matters when organizing a party for your child is to clearly make your party plans revolve around them, carefully considering their needs and taste. This way the party would be really fun for everyone, children, and adults inclusive. How then can you successfully organize those parties the kids would really love and enjoy? Check out these simple tips.
- Get Your Child Involved With the Planning . Don’t make all the plans without involving your little one in any of them. Get them to do simple tasks if they can, such as helping to design the invitations, put stickers on cards or just about any other task that may be appropriate depending on their age.
- Choose a General Theme for the Party. Another thing is choosing a theme that will resonate through out all aspects of the party. This will make the party more fun and symbolic.
- Don’t Make the Party too Long and Boring. Also, try to keep the party brief but entertaining. Longer parties can get boring when there are less creative things to keep kids busy. Two hours is fine and guests can be served the menu in the final half hour of the party.
- Plan Age-specific Events. It is always great to have creative and fun events to keep the kids busy during the ceremony but ensure that these events are planned and tailored to meet conform to the age range of the kids. Don’t make the mistake of engaging them in overbearing activities that may seem beyond them.Serve Simple Foods and Make it Fun Food is always an important aspect of parties and for kids, this must also be kept fun and simple. Serve them foods they can easily grasp with their small hands and that do not require cutting. For your choice of party food, you may go for pizza, sandwiches, cookies, chips and dip,etc.
Birthday cake cutting
You can serve cupcakes for the kids all at once or serve the younger children first after cutting the cake since they’d be the ones most in need of instant gratification.Birthday gifts opening Depending on the age of the guests, you may or may not open gifts while everyone is still very much around during the party. This would help you avoid younger kids’theatrics. But for older kids, this should’nt be a problem since they are mostly matured and can understand the importance of the day to the celebrant.
Goody bags for guests
You can also incorporate gifting your guest goody bags into your party plans to make them feel special too. You may fill this with snacks, books and more as long as they are healthy and appropriate for the age range of the guests. This kids’party guide by Martha Stewart explains these tips, as well as an insight into the number of guests that should be invited to the party which they suggested, should be about as much as the child’s age for birthday parties.
