Children’s Day is coming soon. Tired of taking your kid to the crowded park in that day? Do you want to add some new joy to this special day? Now you can keep your kid entertained by throwing an amusing party at home. Believe me, your kid will be more joyful if you can host the party successfully.
The first step is to decide the theme of the party. It is your kid’s party, so discuss with them. The theme depends on the gender and age. A twelve-year-old boy is surely reluctant to show up in a fairy themed party. There are many optional themes. If you can’t make a decision, search online for reference and choose your kid’s favorite.
After you decide on a theme, make a list of your guests. Make sure to invite all of your kid’s friends and classmates, because you don’t want to hurt the feeling of those who aren’t invited. Before you send out the invitation, confirm again with your kid and don’t miss one. Bear in mind that you should cover all the important information in you invitation: date and time, location, theme, your contact information. Ask your guest to R.S.V.P so that you can arrange beforehand.
And then you can start to decorate your venue. Some parents choose to host their parties outdoors. However, I recommend doing it indoors in case the weather gets bad. As for the decoration, balloons are the most common decoration of a party. Different colors and shapes of balloons help ornament your venue. If you throw a party at night, buy some decorative night lights and install them outside the house to call your guests’ attention.
Party games can be the icebreaker and keep kids entertained. The games shouldn’t be competitive. Non-competitive games won’t upset the children who lose the game. Of course you can choose the traditional games like musical chairs, you play, I guess, pass the parcel and so on.
Prepare some prizes for children in advance to encourage them to engage. Small accessories like a costume ball mask, party sunglasses and cartoon bracelets can add more fun to your party.
Food is another indispensable part of a party. The colorful and tasty snacks can energize the kids after a long day of running and dancing. Keep firmly in mind to avoid the common allergens, like nuts, some fruits and vegetable. Ask parents about any food allergies.
Prepare enough snacks that are quick to eat because kids don’t want to miss a thing. The finger food is a good choice. As the kids’ favorite food, tacos, hotdogs and fruit kabobs should also be available in your party.
As a perfect warp-up, it is nice of you to give all the guests a treat-bag. The fillers don’t need to be expensive. You can put something inside to remind them of your party. It can be small toys that kids can play on the way home.
