Party Expert Voice: Kids B-Day Party Tips
Kids birthday parties can sometimes be a little crazy, but truthfully, kids enjoy simple parties, as long as you keep their tastes and needs in mind. They just want to munch tasty food and have lots of fun.
Involve Your Kid in the Planning
Your kid should participate in the planning process. Have him or her help you choose the theme for the party. This way, you can be sure that you will invest in details that will make your kid happy. Their favorite superhero character? Or a dreamland place they’d like to have fun at? They will probably know what they want for their party! Once you’ve chosen a theme, make sure to have it resonate all through the party. Invitations, cookies, cupcakes, goody bags, decorations, etc., they should all speak the same language.
Focus on Age-Appropriate Fun
Depending on the age, the activities may vary a lot. For example, toddlers may enjoy simpler things like “Pin the Tail on the Donkey” or “Treasure Hunt,” but for children over five years old, you may need a little bit more help. Plan a trip to a bowling alley or miniature golf course, or hire a magician or a superhero character.
Entertain Kids with Simple Projects
Children love to show their creativity. You can buy supplies and have them decorate their own cupcakes, make scrapbooks, adorn plain picture frames, or even make sock-puppets. Just keep in mind the theme, age, gender, and taste.
Serve Simple and Fun Food
Serve foods that don’t need cutting and are easily grabbed by small hands. Colorful cookies, star-shaped sandwiches, Jell-O letters, or ham and cheese mini pizzas. Just think about delicious taste, attractive looks, and if they are easy to eat. You can also include some fun and healthy snacks for a guilt-free entertainment.
Include Special Goody Bags
Kids feel special when they receive a goody bag. Consider incorporating stickers, painting books, candies, bubble jars, etc. Just make sure whatever you decide to put in it, is safe and age-appropriate.
