Preparing for Your Child's Party

If you and your family plan on throwing your child a party, I have some practical tips for you. These tips are all safe and fun but also very useful. I will discuss outdoor parties in addition to parties thrown at public locations. You don't want to miss my personal take on themed parties either. It may not be a popular opinion but it needs to be said. There is no set way when and where to have parties and since each kid is different, their parties should be also.

Activities

For outdoor parties, kites can be great. A nice sized park area in the spring is an ideal location for a kid's party. Picnic baskets and blankets make it relaxing while the kid's run around the park. Games such as pin the tail on the donkey for younger children, pilatas or even races could all be done during the party.

While various activities and contests are occupying the kid's, parents and guests can help with the food, drinks and restroom needs. Some things you will need to bring are candles, insect repellent; rubbish bags and water just to name a few. Sports related fun could include volleyball, softball and potato sack races. If you want to cook, bring the grill for a nice barbecue. If you have limited space in your back garden but would like to have an outdoor party, check out your local parks for a location.

Public Locations

Many businesses specialize in hosting kid's parties. Roller skating rinks, arcades and pizza parlours all have party deals set up. Normally the food and drinks are provided along with whatever service they include. An arcade party will provide the kid's with tokens and tickets while a skating rink might provide the food and free skate rentals. Since the locations are usually open to the public, it's like having many people celebrating your child's birthday. However, many places will let you rent their location exclusively for the right price.

In some instances, they will extend their hours just for the birthday party well past their normal closing hours. Depending on the locations package, this could be a good way to save lots of money and still offer the same amount of fun. Also, you aren't doing the work such as cooking and providing the entertainment because you are paying for that through the birthday caterer. A good place to check for a catered party is a shopping mall-based arcade games room.

Party Themes?

I for one have not seen the benefits of themed parties. Theme parties are those that follow a certain pattern in all aspects of the party. In my own experience it is a waste of money to pay extra for a cake with a character on it. The same goes for plates, candles and napkins. If your child just loves a cartoon, that doesn't mean that the cartoon should dictate the party. It is much cheaper to purchase regular party supplies as opposed to getting the same supplies with cartoons on them. My advice would simply be don't waste your time. Too much of one thing looks tacky, especially if it comes in the image of a yellow sponge. In all reality the theme itself usually steals the show away from the birthday child.
