Kids parties have been ranked the second most stressful in
terms of planning. The first one being… weddings. Right? Kids and their parents
can be as dynamic and diverse as day and night. From getting
the right themes to the right fun equipment to the number of guests. All the
logistics can make you feel like crawling out of your skin! You can prepare pizza in mobile pizza oven with your kids. It will be more enjoyable before garden party.
The aim of a party is to have fun. Consider the needs of the
kids – realistically while at it. Some parents prefer to be by their kids’ side
during the entire party. No matter how odd that sounds, it’s a reality you will
have to contend with. Having an in-house party for children ensures you can
easily monitor your kids and you also control the happenings of the event.
Tips to make the in-house party fun and exciting
You need to have a properly laid out rule for your house
• Let everyone know their limits of what to touch and which rooms are out of bounds.
You don’t want your most valuable items to be broken or to disappear.
• Have a clear time set for starting and ending the party. This way no one will feel
left out or ask why you started the party without them.
• If the party involves young kids, choose the appropriate hours that is considerate
of both the kid(s) and their parents.
Decorate with your kids
Let the children feel like they are part of the party as it should be. Don’t do all the decorating. Share responsibilities. They will get in the mood for the in-house party. Let them use stickers creatively. You will be surprised at how much your kids know.
Gifts and more gifts
There two ways you may choose how your kid(s) could receive
gifts. Either suggest the types of gifts you prefer for your kids or just let
them all bring it all. The reason for this is you might be having a lot of toys
and you really don’t need more. Kids are also selective; they have hobbies that
they love. Toys related to their interests may be more relevant than those
which aren’t. Kids always love the goody bags, throw in candies and wrap them
with a colorful ribbon.It’s always a good thing to appreciate your guests. Send thank you notes.
Age and number of guests go hand in hand
This can be a tricky decision to make. Uninvited kids may
feel rejected and their parents may develop a bad attitude towards you. This is
where you need strategy and wisdom. Send out invites early. If it’s a birthday
party, try to invite ages close to your kid’s. be careful, though, not to
invite more than you can handle. Imagine more than 8-year-old and
7-year-old running around your house. Total chaos. Also, make the parties short. Kids get bored quickly. Others may even start falling asleep.
This is the most anticipated part of the whole event. Kids
love sweet things. Make this fun by getting a variety of cupcakes, with
different colors, let them get creative and messy at the same time. Order your
cake to be delivered early on the day of the party. Cookies and candies are a
favorite of many too.
Remember you are dealing with all kinds of kids. Some of them
are jealous and can start throwing tantrums if your kid opens gifts in front of
them. Make this a private matter. Save the gift unwrapping for last.
Songs and play
There is no party without songs. That’s just absurd. You can
hire services of an entertainer specializing in kids’ parties. In-house party
for children needs to have fun games to keep them busy. Organize several games
for the different age groups you have invited. Find a friend or neighbor who is
good at things like face painting. Most kids find this amazing. Find a nice
spot and let the kids go for it. Let the kids try out different fun activities.
This should be closely monitored to avoid cases of injuries.
Everyone is a winner
If one of the games involve finding a winner, make sure every
kid is a winner. Let them have a small gift for being part of the game so that
one doesn’t feel superior to the other.
Parties are fun. Let your kids eat and play all they can. Let
them take pictures, laugh at the funny games and the mess they made. Let this
be a day to remember.
