Perhaps one of the best ways to show your child how much you care is through a fun birthday party. Now, don’t let this statement throw you off just yet, thinking that you need to buy your child’s affection. That’s not what is meant here.
It’s just that for many years birthday parties have been marked as important events in children’s lives. Now you don’t have to spend a fortune to pull off a fun and memorable children’s party. It only takes a little creativity and ingenuity to plan a party that would have your kid and his or her parents talking about it for days and weeks after.
Here are some interesting children’s birthday party ideas.
Children love to make belief because it gives them a sense of wonder and discovery. Thus, what more can you give an inquisitive and curious child than a themed birthday party? Girls may like a fairy or princess-themed party, while boys may enjoy a pirate or superhero fancy dress party. Have your child and their parents dress up. This needs some amount of preparation but it well worth the effort, especially after you’ve seen how great everyone looks on the pictures.
Other interesting party themes include slumber sleepover, tropical outdoors, under the sea, Indian themes, cowboys, character-centric themes (Spongebob Squarepants, Peppa Pig, Lego, etc), outer space, farm animal themes, Star Wars, and others.
For a one-time investment of about £50, you can buy a good size paddling pool, a fountain slide skid mat and some balloons. Kids can come in their swimming gear and have a great time splashing around to music. If you don’t have a pool but want to just have your party in the garden, you can bring out water guns and have the kids play with them during the party. Make sure you inform the parents so they can bring their suits and a change of clothes. BBQ. Balloons. Music.
Play Centre Party
You can rent out a play centre for the children. Most cater for birthday parties and will organise the food and beverages. Slides, ball pits and crash mats will keep them occupied allowing the parents to mingle over coffee.
There are so many other children’s birthday party ideas. Be unique and plan a really unique one yourself. It is a great way to break the ice with parents you do not yet know. Have fun and remember, it’s a celebration for all the children’s enjoyment: Pass the parcel. Pin the tail. Hot and cold. Treasure maps. Lucky dips.
Your child celebrates their birthday once a year, so why not go all out and make it extra special?
