When you are deciding on a birthday party for your child, it can be hard to decide whether to do it at a facility or just to do the party at home. If you choose to stay in your property, then you need to make sure you have everything on hand to make the party great. Here are some vital elements to make your kids party fantastic.
It can’t be an excellent birthday party if you don’t have any guests! Decide on how many your house can hold for your child’s party. If you are all gathering in the lounge, you might need to bring some seats in from the kitchen so everyone can sit down. Talk to your child about who they want to invite. If they are asking for too many children to be invited, try and explain to them there is limited room in your home. A big party can be overwhelming for children, so a few friends will be great. Then you can buy some invites to send out! Make sure you make it clear who’s invited, as some parents will bring the siblings too.
If you are going to stay at home for your child’s birthday party, then you need to put on some games to keep them entertained. You could do traditional games such as ‘Pass the Parcel’ or ‘Musical Statues’. Some games may require some help from the other adults, so ask them if they can help to make it go smoothly. Make sure you get some prizes as well for the winners, as this will make the games much more exciting.
If you want to make your child’s party fun, there needs to be some music. You can find some great playlists online, which will really get them all dancing. You will need music for some of the games too. It’s always good to have some background music as well while you are eating. If you are having the party outside in your garden, some people use a portable speaker so they can still have music out there. You could also use a phone to play some great tunes to keep the children entertained.
You can’t have a party at home without some delicious food. Party food always goes down well, and will keep the children’s hunger at bay. It’s important to offer a range of hot and cold food for everyone to enjoy. Make sure you know if any of the children that are coming have allergies or are vegetarian so that you can provide food for them too. Ensure that you have enough drinks for everyone, and even some wine for the parents will go down a treat! And most importantly, you need a birthday cake so that your child can celebrate in style. Choose a theme that your child will love, and then you can give the kids a piece to take home after.
Don’t forget to give the children party bags when they leave. Fill them with some toys and sweets and they will love them. Follow the tips above and your child and their friends will have fun at your home.
