If you find yourself in the midst of a panic because you’re hosting a kids party, then fear not. Help is at hand. I’ve got everything you need to know to keep everyone happy and ensure your party is one to remember.
Remember to send these out with as much time as possible for people to respond and plan ahead. You should include:
- Your child’s name and the birthday they are celebrating
- The venue address and the theme (if applicable)
- The party start and end time
- Your contact details – telephone number, email address
- Directions to the venue – you can print off a map to help people find it
It can be a good idea to find out in advance if there are any children attending with allergies or dietary requirements so you can factor that in.
Creating the party
This is the most fun part of the whole process. You need to create a party that your child and their friends will enjoy. Pay particular attention to:
- The music – Choose child-friendly songs and pop anthems that everyone will enjoy dancing to
- Decorations – You’ll want to remember to sort the balloons, banners, and all the tableware. Remember the paper plates, cups, and party hats to get everyone ready for fun.
- Party bags – Every child wants a party bag to take home at the end. You can be as creative as you like with these and include small bags of confectionary, or even small toys. You can get your child to help decorate the bags for a personal touch, or you can buy some great ones online or at a local party supplies store.
- If you’re having the party at home, consider having a sleepover for the kids. It could be a great time to look at bunk beds that places like cuckoooland.com offer and sorting out some extra space for your little ones.
Consider the type of party you want
Now you’ve got everything in place for the party, here are some unique ideas for great parties.
- Have an ice cream party – Set up an ice cream bar and some sprinkles, and watch the children (and adult) create their own ice creams.
- Hire a bouncy castle – Perfect for birthdays in the warmer months; a bouncy castle is so much fun for everyone. It helps children use up their energy and ensures they have an enjoyable time.
- Craft parties – This is better for older kids/tweens. A craft party can be a superb idea to create things such as friendship bracelets, trinket boxes or create their own t-shirt design. It also appeals to their creative side. Just make sure you cover all surfaces first with old sheets.
- Have a princess party – This one is likely to appeal to girls. They can spend the day getting pampered in their home by a professional company who offer age-appropriate pamper parties. It is perfect for little princesses with a love of anything pink and girly. You can find local businesses who offer this online or ask around for recommendations.
