Probably the most important thing for every party is proper preparation. Usually, it is enough to have three-four weeks before the birthday day to prepare the celebration that will be memorable but won’t be too interfering with the rest of your routines and duties. This term will allow you not only to plan the budget but also to think through all the trivia of the celebration. Here are some things to keep in mind to make this day special not only for a child but inspiring and enjoyable for you and your child’s guests.
Birthday is the most important day in a child’s life and parents try to make this day unforgettable and bright. In order for the party to be remembered with positive emotions for a long time, it is necessary to choose the party theme, which in turn depends on the age of the children.
A child of 2-5 years already has his/her own preferences: the favorite cartoon hero, an interesting character from fairy tales, clowns, ninjas, wizards or fairies and this must be taken into account when organizing a party.
6–10 years old is the age when the child is already fully aware of the importance of the party and his/her role in it. You can use it as an opportunity to train your child’s organizational skills and delegate some not complicated tasks in preparation for your little one.
Children of 10-12 years old and especially teenagers are waiting for something special and unusual from their birthday parties and your task is to give them an original, unique and enchanting party. It is worth celebrating outside the home: in the park, in the entertainment center or in the quest room. It all depends on the wishes and interests of your child.
You can search the internet for many ideas of contests and entertainment but choose them so that none of the children feel superfluous. Do not overdo the rivalry games because the children perceive losing in different ways and you definitely do not want to calm the child for half an hour. In addition to active games, there are also wonderful entertainments that all children will like, for example, face painting or custom temporary tattoos with their favorite characters.
Another question that will arise is to invite only children or together with parents. It can be a good idea to invite children under the age of five with their parents. As soon as the children go to school, they learn to be independent therefore from the age of six you can begin to organize only children’s parties but be sure to discuss with parents of invited children things like allergies or food restrictions.
The duration of the party you should set at the beginning of the planning. This will greatly simplify life for both you and your guests. You can better plan entertainment and parents will be able to pick up the children on time without worrying that their kids will not get a piece of cake. Also, it will save you from the every-minute calls from worried parents.
For your guests, the party begins with invitations. After you decide on the theme, place and time of the party you can go to the invitation. Of course, you can find templates that you just need to fill out and send or even invite everyone by phone but isn’t it more interesting to create a card with your own hands along with your kids? Look for brilliant ideas, fantasize and create unique invitations with drawings and custom kids stickers that are a pleasure to receive. It is desirable that the invitations reach the guests a few weeks before the party so the parents have enough time to purchase a gift and things that will be needed for the celebration, for example, a costume for the child if the subject requires it.
We hope these tips will help you to create a small miracle for your child. Remember that not only all the arrangements but even more a good mood creates a true celebration. Last but not least, make sure to have someone who can take photos to keep sweet memories.
