The Easy Way to Throw the Ultimate Kids’ Party
Does the idea of throwing a kids’ party fill you with dread? Do you envision a group of demanding children, running around, screaming and throwing mini sausage rolls at your head? Well, worry no more, just follow our three simple steps, and you can guarantee that your party will be the ultimate success.
1. Choose a Theme
The fantastic thing about kids is they have great imaginations, and it doesn’t take a lot to get those imaginations fired up. It’s always good to opt for a theme that doesn’t encourage the kids to split into gender groups. That way, you’re encouraging them to all interact with each other, and they’re likely to have a lot more fun playing with both boys and girls. A popular choice is the ‘Under the Sea’ theme, and it‘s one the kids seem to love. It’s also popular with the adults as it’s pretty easy to pull off. Drape some blue and green shiny fabric around your party venue, then add some blue and green balloons. Make sure that there’s a bottle of bubbles for each of your party guests, and let the kid’s imaginations do the rest. It really is that simple!
2. Provide Healthy and Tasty Treats
A mistake that people often make when throwing a children’s party is when it comes to what food to provide. Many opt for sickly, sugar-laden treats that cause the kids to become hyperactive, and can even lead them to be sick. Remember, healthy snacks don’t have to be boring. Try slicing up some fresh veg and serve it up with a tasty dip. If you have the time, you could even arrange the veg to fit in with your theme. A few chocolate treats are fine, but if you go overboard on the junk-food, you’re likely to end up regretting it later. Probably around the time you’re trying to cope with ten hyperactive children and then cleaning sick off the floor. The other parents will love you for it, and more importantly, your party venue will stay vomit free. This is particularly good news if you happen to be hosting the party at your own house.
3. Plan Ahead
Ever heard of the saying ‘Prior Preparation Prevents Poor Performance? Well, this is especially true when throwing a kid’s party. You don’t need to plan a detailed itinerary, but a basic idea of what’s happening and when, will stop the party from descending into chaos. Just make sure the kids always have a game, or activity to focus on. You could consider searching for a photo booth for rent to keep them occupied. You can also never go wrong with classics such as ‘Pass the Parcel’, ‘Musical Chairs’, or even a colouring-in competition. If possible, try and tie your activity in with your theme. If your theme’s ‘Under the Sea’ have the kids’ draw, or colour-in sea creatures.
So, just follow our foolproof steps, and you’re guaranteed to throw a party that your kids will love you for.
